MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 7, 2016) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ", "VIQ Solutions" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VQS), a global expert providing a cybersecurity protected technology and service platform for digital evidence capture and content management, is pleased to announce the release of their new secure cloud based SaaS capture, management and collaboration platform.
"There is a fundamental shift underway at VIQ in how we provide customer solutions. Our advanced cloud offering directly addresses rapidly increasing customer demand for SaaS subscription workflows with fixed, recurring costs and managed back end infrastructure," said Sebastien Paré, President and CEO of VIQ Solutions Inc. "This new deployment in the UK is a key milestone in the plan to broaden VIQ's customer base, increase recurring revenue and drive growth in coming quarters."
VIQ's secure content management enables customers to connect easily to servers in the cloud, instead of fixed servers or server farms, reducing hardware and management costs. Digital audio, video and associated data captured through any VIQ capture solution, including smartphones, is automatically routed to the cloud server for secure central storage and authorized access.
To ensure maximum customer choice, VIQ has partnered with leading global cloud providers including Amazon Web Service (AWS) and Amazon S3. The VIQ workflow is also compatible with private cloud solutions.
The entire workflow, from capture to storage, is provided to customers for a contracted fixed monthly fee, with additional charges depending on bandwidth usage and storage requirements.
"The sophisticated VIQ cloud platform leads the market in security, flexibility and reliability," said Malcolm Macallum, VIQ's Chief Operating and Chief Technical Officer. "Our cloud solution easily scales from the largest enterprise customer down to a single user, while maintaining the top levels of data security and privacy that is a recognized VIQ hallmark."
VIQ Solutions also announced today that their exclusive UK partner, Brahler ICS UK Limited ("Brahler"), has won a tender with the Nursing and Midwifery Council ("NMC") of the United Kingdom to use the new VIQ cloud services solution.
The innovative workflow will see audio and associated digital files captured in the NMC's multiple interview rooms automatically streamed to the Amazon S3 cloud for secure storage and authorized access.
"We're pleased to team up again with VIQ on this exciting new SaaS project integrating their latest secure cloud based technologies," said Simon Sainsbury, Managing Director at Brahler ICS UK. "We look forward to providing NMC with a secure, flexible solution to meet their sophisticated interview capture needs."
The complete workflow is provided to NMC on a monthly subscription basis for a three year term.
"Providing this SaaS flexibility, while maintaining the highest standards of security and privacy, makes VIQ a compelling choice for medical, law enforcement and other security conscious customers around the world," said Sebastien Paré. "Our advanced cloud workflow provides customers with the ease and efficiency of a cloud based solution while providing steady, recurring revenue for VIQ, and is a key part of our continued growth plan."
