REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - Nov. 2, 2016) - Information Services Corporation (TSX:ISV) ("ISC" or the "Company") today revealed a new company brand, logo and tagline as the leading provider of registry and information management services for public data and records. The brand identity will be released via ISC's new investor website at company.isc.ca that will be available on November 3, 2016.
"This is an exciting day for us as we reveal our new brand, logo and tagline to the marketplace. We celebrate our legacy as we move forward with thanks to our people for their work and contributions to building and operating a company that is the trusted leader in our industry," said Jeff Stusek, President and CEO of ISC. "This branding process allows us to reach new potential customers through a refreshed focus on our services and our unique expertise."
Last year ISC set about reviewing its brand with input from internal and external stakeholders to help articulate our current state yet broad enough to accommodate our future direction.
The symbol of our brand is our logo. The square represents stability and strength. The way the "I" in ISC completes the square conjures a sense of integrity. The shift in visual identity from a circle to a square is recognition of the company's past and its logical evolution. The use of blue conveys a calm and confident corporate personality and the colour is also associated with strength, possibility and openness.
ISC's tagline fulfills a very important purpose - it quickly and efficiently sums up what our company is all about. Our tagline is "Information in the right hands." It expresses confidence in our ability to hold the information we are entrusted to manage - with security, accuracy and integrity.
Our brand will continue to evolve with us over time. Proud of where we are from, we are equally proud of how we have evolved. At ISC, we put the right information, in the right hands, at the right time.
Headquartered in Canada, ISC is the leading provider of registry and information management services for public data and records. Throughout our history we have delivered value to our clients by providing solutions to manage, secure and administer information through our registry and services segments. ISC is focused on sustaining its core business while pursuing new growth opportunities. The Class A Shares of ISC trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol ISV.
