Explorance Named a 2020 Microsoft Great Canadian Innovator

Montreal, Canada – August 25, 2020 – Explorance, the world’s largest provider of journey analytics solutions, was named in Microsoft’s Great Canadian Innovators 2020 Yearbook for providing world-class feedback solutions to organizations across the globe.

“Explorance sets the tone for the whole yearbook with their amazing story,” Microsoft stated in the official announcement. “Explorance’s unique culture and innovative solutions have attracted Fortune 500 companies and learning institutions and earned them accolades as the #2 best workplace in Canada.”

Microsoft selected Explorance as a powerful innovator based on the learning analytics solutions it offers the Higher Education and Large Enterprise markets through its Blue suite of feedback gathering and analysis software and Metrics That Matter Learning Effectiveness platform. These journey analytics solutions enable organizations to centralize their feedback processes (applicant feedback, learning evaluations, 360-degree reviews, engagement surveys, and instant feedback) in one system, breaking down segmented data silos.

“Explorance has been a Microsoft Partner since its inception back in 2003. Through its partnership program, Microsoft has supported and enabled Explorance to leverage its technologies easily and without the typical barriers that startups face early on in their journey,” said Samer Saab, CEO of Explorance. “We continue to be impressed by the fast evolution of innovation coming our way from Microsoft. It is helping us build and deliver software better and faster to our customers.”

The 2020 yearbook profiles 15 great Canadian innovators that are shaping the technology world in the North. “We celebrate their creative application of technology and applaud them for their tenacity, resourcefulness, and sacrifice,” stated Microsoft in the report. “Competing and winning in the technology industry, arguably the most competitive and fast-paced on Earth is no small feat!”

The 2020 Yearbook documents companies from coast to coast and across industries that are using advanced Microsoft technologies like artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, and holograms, to innovate.
