Quote from Paul Raymond, President and CEO at Alithya:
"It is an honour to be chosen from such a distinguished group of innovative companies that contribute to the advancement of the economy. I believe that leadership development is one of the most important investments that we can make as an organization, and one of the most important investments that leaders should make in themselves. Organizations with the best leaders will attract and retain the best people in the industry. This Mercuriades award validates our vision for the future of our Company, which includes our commitment to having strongly led teams in place to ensure the continuous provision of innovative solutions for solving the most complex issues that our clients face."
Finalist in the Technological Innovation category
Alithya was also a finalist in the Technological Innovation category in recognition of Alithya GoTestTM, the Company's proprietary, end-to-end, automated testing platform. Using automation, Alithya clients can harness the power of GoTestTM to generate substantial time and cost savings, including development cost reductions. The tool is designed to be user-friendly for those with very little technical skills by enabling manual tests to be transformed into automated tests with one simple click, regardless of the application or system being tested. GoTestTM is a unique and extremely valuable tool for reducing the burden associated with repetitive testing of regular, cloud-based business application updates.
Since 1981, the Mercuriades has been recognized as one of Quebec's most prestigious business competitions. The program, run by the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec (FCCQ), recognizes the innovation, ambition, entrepreneurship, and performance of Quebec-based companies.
