Libeo Ranks No. 119 on the PROFIT 500 List

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 3, 2013) - For the second year in a row, Libéo has made it onto the annual list of Canada's 500 fastest-growing companies compiled by the prestigious PROFIT: Your Guide to Business Success magazine. The Quebec City-based firm specializing in web solutions ranked in 119th position on the Canadian list and was 14th among the Quebec companies.

"This is tangible recognition of the efforts made by the entire team. It's especially gratifying to have been ranked alongside Canada's leading companies," says Libéo's General Manager Joé Bussière.

The explosive growth enjoyed by the digital solutions firm, recognized for its expertise in interactive, collaborative Web and mobile applications, since it was founded shows no signs of slowing. As a case in point, the some sixty dedicated employees who make up the Libéo team have had their work cut out for them over the past few months.

The firm is behind the design and development of several large-scale websites, including one for CAA-Québec. The Réseau des Carrefours jeunesse emploi du Québec and the City of Sherbrooke have also called on Libéo's technological know-how for various digital projects. The team is currently working on the design for new large-scale websites, including the site for the City of Lévis, which is projected to be up and running in the upcoming year.

"This very busy year has paid off. Our revenues have grown by 567% in just five years. Moreover, several clients, such as the Université de Montréal, have chosen to once again put their trust in our services, proof that we continue to deliver a product of the highest quality!" Joé Bussière points out.


On May 26, during the OCTAS awards ceremony organized by Réseau Action TI, Libéo and SAGA won the award in the Cultural, educational and media sector category for their innovative project. The concept is an integral part of an extensive campaign aimed at raising awareness among youth of the dangers of tobacco use. The two firms also received the prestigious OCTAS for Excellence award presented to the winner whose project had set itself apart the most among the 23 award-winning projects.

The campaign combines video and gaming in a fully interactive concept enabling young people between the ages of 12 and 25 to better understand the full impact of tobacco consumption. The young spectators are drawn into in a story set in a murky and mysterious world, participating until the end when they discover the final denouement. The campaign marked a Quebec milestone in technological terms when it was launched.

These two OCTAS are the fourth and fifth to be awarded to Libéo over a period of just three years. Last year the firm earned top honours in the Learning Environment category for its Moodle DECclic III project and two more in 2011 in the categories B2C general public e-commerce and Business solutions - Free software for the creation of Touchbox, a comprehensive online ticketing system implemented notably at the Quebec City IMAX theatre.


Made up of a community of more than 60 enthusiastic professionals, Libéo is a leading provider of web solutions based on free software and informative, mobile, interactive and collaborative web applications. The digital solutions firm's expertise ranges from cutting-edge design to high-availability web hosting, as well as e-commerce and the delivery of the most fluid end user experience available. The firm's mission is to provide support to organizations through vertically integrated solutions and unparalleled multidisciplinary expertise that meet all their digital services needs.
