Syncapse Corp. Chosen One of Canada's Select "Companies-To-Watch" in the 2010 Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ Awards

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 23, 2010) - Syncapse Corp., a global leader in social media technology, won a coveted Companies-to-Watch Award, one of four separate awards categories that make up the 2010 Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ Awards, the pre-eminent technology awards program in Canada.

The Companies-to-Watch Award honours early-stage Canadian technology companies in business less than five years. These companies exemplify many of the winning characteristics of Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ ranked companies, which are judged using a longer track record.

Syncapse helps marketers and agencies build, manage and measure their customer relationships through the use of cutting edge social media technology. Syncapse's client list includes Fortune 500 brands such as PepsiCo International, Reckitt Benckiser, Anheuser-Busch InBev, Intel, CIBC, Autism Speaks and Mars Canada Inc. Syncapse invests a significant portion of its operating revenues to the development of proprietary technology, including SocialTALK™, a leading enterprise-grade social publishing platform listed by Mashable as one of ten essential social media tools for B2B marketers.

The majority of Companies-to-Watch winners are potential global leaders in technology sectors that didn't even exist five years ago. To win the award, companies must display the kind of management expertise and superior technology that mark a successful early-stage company poised for continued growth. To qualify for the Companies-to-Watch Award, candidates must have been operating less than five years.
