Montreal, Quebec (PRWEB) June 30, 2014

Ranked as one of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies by Canadian Business and PROFIT again this year, Orckestra was particularly honored to receive the elite Export Excellence Award for their impressive +3,056% five-year revenue growth in exports, the highest among all Canadian companies ranked in the 2014 PROFIT 500.

Orckestra accredits a large part of their remarkable growth to their client base in the US and Mexico, and in their heavy R&D investment in the Overture Commerce Platform, engineered to power next-generation e-commerce solutions.

The Canadian-based company has no intention of slowing down. "Mexico is emerging. We're just getting started there," declared Orckestra CEO and Co-founder, Louis Fournier, upon receiving the award at the PROFIT 500 CEO Summit in Toronto on June 16th.

The globally-focused company will continue their expansion in Canada, the US and beyond, with plans to penetrate the other top markets experiencing a surge in digital sales.

In conjunction with this remarkable accomplishment in building their exports business, Canadian Business and PROFIT ranked Orckestra No.172 on the 26th annual PROFIT 500, the definitive ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies. Published in the July issue of Canadian Business and online at, the PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their revenue growth over five years.

"The members of the PROFIT 500 are the elite of the country's entrepreneurial community," says James Cowan, Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Business and PROFIT. "Their stories are lessons in business strategy, innovation, management excellence and sheer tenacity."

Orckestra is on a roll with a recent win at the SharePoint Excellence Gala for Best Enterprise Content Management solution, and their third nomination as an IMPACT Award Finalist for Enterprise Public Cloud Innovation.
