(TLN) K-eCommerce, a company that develops innovative management solutions in the rapidly growing e-commerce sector for Canadian and international businesses, will receive a $250,000 repayable contribution from Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) to enhance its competitiveness and support its growth.
With the help of the funding, announced last week by Eva Nassif, MP for Vimy, k-eCommerce will be able to acquire state-of-the-art computer equipment, including high-performance servers. The objective of this project is to increase the capacity of k-eCommerce’s cloud infrastructure and support the strong growth of the business. k-eCommerce plans to create 30 new jobs over the next two years.
Company is expanding
“CED’s support is vital, as it allows us to add high-performance equipment to our world-class cloud infrastructure,” said Laurent Allardin, CEO and founder of k-eCommerce. “K-ecommerce is expanding rapidly in both the business-to-business (B2B) and retail sales (B2C) models. More and more businesses are turning to the web to boost their sales, improve the quality of their services and reduce their operating costs.
“Whether accessed from a mobile device, tablet or computer, our clients’ transactional websites must be available at all times and have the capacity to respond instantly,” he continued. “This new equipment will help us not only improve the quality of our services for our existing clients, but also support the growth of our company while serving more clients.”
Having rapid growth
K-eCommerce has grown rapidly and has become one of the leaders in the development of customized eCommerce management solutions. The company constantly invests in research and development in order to offer products that are higher performing and more competitive. Its solutions have already won over more than 600 business clients in North America and Europe.
During an announcement, Nassif said the Government of Canada is committed to supporting innovative Canadian businesses. According to Nassif, innovation, a driving force of the economy, is the key to success because it generates growth that benefits both businesses and communities. “This is why we are committed to ensuring that businesses are able to rely on adequate resources to create and market innovative products.”
“By helping businesses such as k-eCommerce grow and invest in order to enhance their performance and be able to hold their own in a highly competitive global market, the Government of Canada is standing by its commitment to foster expansion and innovation and help grow exports,” added Nassif. “Furthermore, by creating quality jobs, this project will generate real benefits for Laval.”
“I am pleased with CED’s support for k-eCommerce, a Canadian business that has come up with innovative solutions to improve the efficiency of eCommerce operations, and has also found ways of ensuring its growth for almost 20 years now,” said the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister responsible for CED, who issued a statement.
