They say that great minds think alike. And when it comes to the fundraising partnership of ProntoForms and Martello Technologies, we couldn’t agree more. Both Wesley Clover portfolio companies, these two firms are growing at an exceptional rate and becoming industry leaders on the technology scene.

Collaboration and community spirit come naturally to these two winners of the 2016 Employees’ Choice Awards. When the annual fundraiser, Heart and Stroke Big Bike was scheduled to roll around Kanata, the ProntoForms team, led by Esta Nell and Elizabeth Walker, reached out to Martello Technologies to help them fill the bike. Tracy King and the Martello Technologies team were quick to sign up and a fundraising partnership was formed.

Whooping and singing their way around the Kanata course on a chilly June morning, 29 riders from Martello Technlologies and ProntoForms pedaled their way to a combined $3,000 for life-saving heart and stroke research.  Read More.

Location’s one of the first things Bruce Linton considered when he launched Martello Technologies, a software-as-a-service(SaaS) company that develops and manages cloud-based communications systems. He put Martello in an office right on the path between the Mitel Tower and the campus cafeteria. Then he mounted a monitor outside his company offices with a sports ticker, a trivia-and-technology roll, and Martello news bites.
Mitel employees, a fertile source of recruitment, headed for lunch couldn’t help but pause and, when they read the latest news on hoverboards, a Martello release came right on its heels.
“You want frequency of touch or frequency of visibility to be high, not an annual event,” Linton said. “So in Kanata North you can actually get that location, location, location to your targeted partner pretty dialed in.”
