MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - April 12, 2013) - The expert system in change management SherpaTO(TM) was among the finalists for the Innovation category of the Mercuriades 2013. The winners were announced on April 11, during the Award Winners Gala taking place at the Palais des congrès de Montreal. Since 1981, this yearly competition, organized by the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec aims to recognize the exceptional accomplishments of Quebec's small and large companies that stand out through their excellence standards and know-how.

SherpaTO(TM), the first virtual coach in change management, available 24/7, was developed by Brio Change, a leading change management consulting firm and among the few fully dedicated to this field. Created in collaboration with HEC Montréal, an internationally-recognized business school, SherpaTO(TM) combines in one unique expert system more than 70 years of academic research conducted by HEC Montréal.

SherpaTO(TM) was submitted for the jury's consideration focusing on the innovative aspect of this interactive tool available in the cloud, which was developed based on the experience of over 200 clients and 300 transformation projects across different sectors.

« This new distinction confirms the innovative aspect of this one of a kind central directory of theoretical and practical knowledge that is continuously updated by its users. By using the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, our objective was to eliminate all the entry barriers for the adoption of a change management programme, therefore allowing organizations to manage their transformations and reap the benefits faster, all while reducing the failure risks. It's project insurance at a price accessible for any type of company. » commented Ms. Sylvie Charbonneau, president de Brio Change and co-creator of the expert system SherpaTO(TM).
