Victoria, BC - January 28, 2010 – The New Year has been a very good one thus far for Victoria-based Advanced Ecommerce Research Systems (Advanced). The final week of January saw inclusion of the rapidly growing organization in the “Ready to Rocket” list - a report on the top twenty-five private companies best positioned to capitalize on trends for growth in BC. The Rocket list is compiled by Rocket Builders, a market strategy and consulting firm based in Vancouver, BC.
“Each year when we choose the Ready to Rocket companies, we are looking for those companies that have best matched technical innovation with market opportunity. Advanced Ecommerce Research Systems is an excellent example of the right technology for the right customers at the right time.” said Reg Nordman, Managing Partner, Rocket Builders. Later that week, Advanced was awarded the Best Early Stage Company – Information Technology honor by the Canadian Financing Forum. The Forum (where CEO Fred Speckeen took the podium for a fifteen minute pitch before more than seventy top investors from across North America) featured presentations from Canadian technology companies. “We’re thrilled to be in such good company, including other innovators benefiting from an early commitment to SaaS” Says Advanced’s President and CEO Fred Speckeen, “Ecommerce is a commercial phenomenon that creates massive amounts of streaming, information-rich data. Advanced enjoys working directly with two of the largest ecommerce companies, eBay and PayPal, and we’re utilizing a combination of proprietary large data techniques, PaaS and SaaS to provide real-time analytics in this real-time marketplace. Additional platforms and service providers will soon be added to our list of partners. It’s a very exciting time for our very talented team, and we’re thankful for the honor of this recognition by RocketBuilders and the Canadian Financing Forum.”
