RefineCo, an Alberta-based technology firm, was honoured to win silver at the 2014 CDN’s Channel Elite Awards for the Best Enterprise Solution. The awards gala was held on September 9, 2014 at the Hazelton Manor in Vaughan, ON with nearly 200 attendees. These highly competitive awards attract hundreds of solution providers from all across Canada, making the first time winner extra proud. CDN’s Channel Elite Awards recognizes IT Solution Providers for their innovation, leadership and commitment to creating business value for customers.
“Channel Elite Awards are the hardest award to win in the high tech channel. Companies must show true innovation while also outperforming their competition. They have to show a lot heart, dedication and success in delivering creative solutions” said Paolo Del Nibletto, the Editor of CDN – Computer Dealer News.
The Best Enterprise Award honours the solution provider that has created the most innovative problem solving hardware, networking, mobile, cloud or software-based solution for an enterprise, defined as a company or department with 251 seats or more using the solution.
“This award validates RefineCo’s commitment of delivering innovative and high value technology solutions through each customer engagement,” said Eric Veenendaal, RefineCo’s CEO. “We remain committed to our goal of becoming the go-to-company in Western Canada for technology-driven enterprise content management solutions, and this award proves that we are well on our way.”
RefineCo won the award for the Electronic Well File (EWF) solution that was developed for a large Canadian oil and gas company. This solution is a unique combination of technologies that allows the company to access well records and documents using a single intuitive interface. The EWF solution takes powerful industry tools such as FAST Search, Microsoft SharePoint, and the Professional Petroleum Data Management (PPDM) database and packages them in an interface that is simple and familiar. Most importantly, this innovative solution goes above and beyond by focusing on the user experience without compromising on robust, scalable enterprise architecture.
Shaun Stepanowich, RefineCo’s Director of Technology, said, “I am very proud of our development team and the hard work and dedication they demonstrated. The expertise and support provided by our customer was exceptional and ultimately we have them to thank for making this project such a success.”
