OTTAWA, Canada, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Versature was honored late last week at the Ottawa Business Achievement Awards Gala with the Small Business of the Year award. Versature was chosen out of dozens of entries and 14 strong finalists who were up for the award. The mandate of the OBAAs is to highlight growing, innovative companies that demonstrate great customer service and corporate social responsibility standards in the Ottawa area. Other OBAA Small Biz of the Year finalists included Ottawa General Contractors, Accu-Rate Corporation, Competition Composites, GPS to Go, Youi Labs & Phirelight Security Solutions among others.
WIth 1,100% growth over the past 5 years and 40% growth year over year in the most recent fiscal, Versature was well positioned for the award. In addition to outstanding growth, Versature prides itself on Outrageous Customer Service and fosters a fun and exciting work environment for staff. Backyard BBQs, indoor/outdoor parties and ongoing foosball tournaments are the norm at Versature, located in Ottawa's east end. There are even plans afoot to build a backyard ice-hockey rink. In addition, Versature supports the community by providing low to no-cost hosted phone system programs for non-profit and charitable groups. Versature employees also are given time off to volunteer with local organizations, such as the local SAR (Search and Rescue) group that is very active in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec.
