60 percent Year-over-Year Growth Catapults Software Design Firm to Prominence in Three Categories

With a growth strategy that is both savvy and bold, Macadamian is an excellent example of the energy that can be found in Canada’s “fast” ICT companies.
- Karna Gupta, ITAC President and CEO

Macadamian, a global leader in user experience design and software development, today announced that it has rocketed up the 2012 Edition of the Branham300, the definitive listing of Canada’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry leaders, as ranked by revenues.

Macadamian appears on the following listings:

  •     Top 5 Mobile Technologies Companies – ranking: 3
  •     Top 20 Movers & Shakers (biggest rise in ranking) – ranking: 4 (tied with WiLAN)
  •     Top 250 Canadian ICT Companies – overall ranking: 167 (up from 211 in 2010)

The strong rankings are due to Macadamian’s impressive year-over-year 60 percent revenue growth. Fiscal year-end results in September 2011 were the highest in the company’s history and capped seven straight quarters of revenue growth.

“Macadamian is a company at the intersection of two important megatrends: the acceleration of mobile applications and the shift of product features and value from hardware to software”, said Macadamian CEO Frederic Boulanger. ”Macadamian is so successful because we perform business alchemy – bringing together user researchers, creative designers, software engineers and project managers all under one roof to create the “gold” of compelling software.”

Macadamian meshes user experience research, user interface design and advanced software development techniques to help some of the world’s biggest brands to deliver compelling software experiences to their clients.

“With a growth strategy that is both savvy and bold, Macadamian is an excellent example of the energy that can be found in Canada’s “fast” ICT companies,” said ITAC President and CEO Karna Gupta. “The company should be congratulated for its recognition in the 2012 Branham 300 listing."

In the ICT sector, the firm is behind the softphone designs of flagship products at Avaya and Genband, as well as a variety of mobility solutions for Cisco and Juniper Networks. In the Healthcare sector, the firm has delivered tablet-based solutions for Electronic Health Records to complete Patient Management Systems for private medical practices, for companies like Cardinal Health, MED3000 and Elsevier. In many cases, Macadamian software is used in mission-critical applications in which ease of use is essential to adoption, effectiveness and safety.

"Macadamian has been an important player in the Ottawa technology community for over 14 years and a staunch supporter of Invest Ottawa,” said Bruce Lazenby, President and CEO of Invest Ottawa. The firm’s continued success, as demonstrated in its remarkable rise in the 2012 Branham 300 listing, shows the vitality of the Ottawa technology sector and should be an inspiration for the many local companies just starting out."
