Metafore Wins Platinum BusinessPeople's Choice Award

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 23, 2009) - Metafore, one of Canada's leading IT solutions providers, has won a platinum BusinessPeople's Choice IT Solution Provider award, based on a national survey of more than 2,200 Canadian IT managers drawn from a wide range of company sizes and industry sectors.

Canadian solution providers were ranked according to the number of times that the survey respondents listed them as technology leaders. Platinum-level winners, including Metafore, scored the highest ratings. "We are very excited about this award," said Bryant Jackson, Metafore's president and chief executive officer: "As a customer-focused organization we are driven by service excellence, so it is very encouraging to us to see this high level of recognition across the Canadian business community."

The awards were launched this year by the IT news network, IT in Canada. Winners will be recognized on November 25th in Toronto, Ontario, at "Tides of Change III," an industry event hosted by CRN Canada Magazine, part of the IT in Canada network.

The concept behind the BusinessPeople's Choice IT Solution Providers awards was developed by Michael O'Neill, IT in Canada CEO. "For many years," he explained, "I've wondered what we'd find if we went directly to the users of IT solution providers' services and asked them who they look to for technology leadership. We felt this approach would yield a far more interesting and accurate picture than simply looking at industry-sourced lists."
