Canada is seeing a dramatic growth in the technology sector within the last few years. Thanks to the growing use of AI, Big Data, and the use of Experiential marketing, a few companies in the country have been able to shake up the entire industry. Here are 4 such Canadian tech companies that you need to watch in 2020!

1) StickerYou

stickeryou-office-tech-companies-2020StickerYou is a Canadian company that needs minimal introduction. Founded in 2008, StickerYou started life as an e-commerce platform for selling custom stickers and decals. 

Today, the company houses the largest brick and mortar Sticker shop in the world. A lot of this growth comes from how the company integrates traditional marketing with its digital counterpart. Not only that, StickerYou plays it big when it comes to experiential marketing.

With a physical store in place, customers can touch and feel world-class Stickers, Decals, Temporary Tattoos, and more, before making a purchase decision.

In 2020 and beyond, we see StickerYou growing even larger while playing a more significant role within the local community. They not only let you buy readymade stickers, but, StickerYou also gives you an option to upload your custom design. Using the company’s online tool, you can order in a matter of minutes!

If you own a company and are looking to get a custom-designed sticker, a high-quality label for your product, a decal, or even an Iron-on, StickerYou is undoubtedly the company to look forward to. 

2) Zoom.ai

They have been successful in doing so and are known for saving their customers a lot of time by being the all-in-one meeting scheduler.

The company has built an AI-powered assistant that automates your meeting scheduling experience as well as other everyday tasks. Zoom.ai has seamless integration with major work platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Slack, Zoom.us, Google Hangouts, Skype, Facebook Messenger, etc.

3) Certn.co

certn-team-canadian-top-tech-company-2020Certn is one tech company that has made use of machine learning and artificial intelligence like no other. The company offers services in which employers, landlords, and other organizations can screen and evaluate potential employees, tenants, freelancers in no time.

Above all, the pricing for their services is exceptionally low, considering the quality of work they deliver. No wonder, Certn is so well received by companies of North America.

Some of the services offered by Certn are:

  • Soft Check
  • Enhanced Electronic Identity verification
  • Canadian criminal record check reports
  • US Instant SSN validation, address history trace
  • Verify someone’s international education credentials

There are a lot of other companies that provide these services. What sets Certn apart is the speed of delivery of their platform.

While traditional companies can take days to process and verify specific checks, Certn provides a few of the reports in under an hour.

With the use of deep learning, we can expect the delivery time to lower even further in 2020. 

4) Xanadu.ai

xanadu-ai-tech-companies-2020AI really seems to be the buzz word for tech companies coming 2020. While some tech companies use the term AI to sound fancy and futuristic, companies like Xanadu are rooted in AI.

Using the power of AI, Xanadu is set to build the world’s most powerful quantum computer. This Toronto startup was able to raise $32 million for their project. 

And the company is putting the money to proper use. Recently, BMO Financial Group and Scotiabank partnered with Xanadu on Quantum Computing Speedups for Trading projects. These companies will be using Xanadu technologies to forecast the disruptive potential for derivatives pricing in the coming years as well as significantly lower power overhead. 

Using the Xanadu Quantum hardware, BMO and Scotiabank believe they can speed up their calculations by hundreds to thousands of times!

These Canadian tech companies are at the forefront of their respective industries.

So often, we hear of established brands going out of business, or nearing bankruptcy. Part of the problem resides in their inability to adapt to change entirely, or very slowly.

When a company listens to its users, and responds appropriately, the road to long-term success broadens significantly, and is a win-win for all parties involved.

We expect even greater things from the companies mentioned above in 2020 and beyond, and can’t wait to see what’s in store.
