Igloo Software Named in Microsoft’s Great Canadian Innovators 2018 Yearbook

Microsoft selects Igloo Software as a Great Canadian Innovator in its 2018 yearbook for its explosive growth and success in ground-breaking digital workplace solutions

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ONOctober 04, 2018 – Igloo Software, the leading provider of digital workplace solutions, was named in Microsoft’s Great Canadian Innovators 2018 Yearbook for successfully reshaping the modern digital workplace, solidifying Igloo’s credibility as a leader in the industry.

Microsoft selected Igloo Software as a powerful innovator for its robust portfolio of digital workplace solutions that are changing the way employees communicate, collaborate, share knowledge, and drive engagement in the new world of work. Igloo’s platform leverages the secure Microsoft Azure cloud to empower organizations to design and develop inspiring digital destinations with tight integrations with the Microsoft tools and apps employees already know and use, including Office 365.

Microsoft recognizes the importance of the modern digital workplace and the role Igloo plays in guiding businesses on that journey. “For the average North American employee, the disconnect between how their work is helping achieve the objectives of the business, the inefficiencies of communicating and collaborating, and a feeling of being underappreciated compel them to change jobs. The moment for digital workplace innovation is now,” states Microsoft in the report.

In 2008, during Igloo’s startup phase, the digital workplace company received initial support from Microsoft for Startups, which acted as a springboard for success. Since then, Igloo has grown to become a globally recognized company with enterprise customers spanning over 80 countries.

“At Igloo, we understand our customers are at different stages in their digital transformation, so we optimize our digital workplace solutions to fit their level of maturity, unique business needs, and transformation goals,” said Dan Latendre, CEO of Igloo Software. “Working with Microsoft has enabled us to leverage their leading technologies to enhance our solution portfolio, enabling our customers to be more innovative and productive in this next-gen work environment.”

This year, the company was named to KMWorld’s list of 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management for the eighth consecutive year, and has been recognized by Deloitte as one of the fastest-growing companies in North America for the third consecutive year in a row.

“We’re going to continue to leverage our close relationship with Microsoft to bring even more value to our customers through new innovations in AI, analytics, and global data residency options,” Latendre said. “It’s an honor to be recognized by an industry powerhouse as an innovator and it reaffirms that our approach to providing a secure and scalable platform along with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions and services is what today’s organizations need in order to achieve new levels of employee engagement and productivity.”
