Ah it all becomes clear now...Americans do believe there's more to Canada than seal hunting and polar bears. At least Web Content Management Provider Ektron does. Ektron has announced that they are opening their first office in Toronto, Canada. Home of the Blue Jays and the Toronto Maple Leafs. What has encouraged this movement North? "Significant growth" in sales from Canadian companies over the last year according to William Rogers, CEO of Ektron."We saw a need to establish a local presence not only to better server our clients, but also to build closer relationships with our partners and provide them with the support they need." Kevin McCloskey, formerly of Momentum Advanced Solutions Inc., will be the Director of Ektron Canada and is tasked with not only growing the business but also ensuring that Ektron's Canadian partners and existing client base are well supported. Ektron's core product is it's Web CMS CMS400.Net. They also offer built on social networking and web 2.0 features like wikis, blogs, forums...you know...the stuff every CMS vendor is adding on now. It's good to see vendors recognizing the potential in Canada, especially since our dollar is now on par. We got a little bit of money to spend, eh!
