FREDERICTON, N.B. - SimpTek Technologies, a software company providing intelligent energy management solutions for homeowners and utilities, was recognized with a Companies-to-Watch Award, as part of the Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50™ Awards for its innovative technology, leadership and early stage growth. SimpTek is the only company from the Maritimes that won in this category along with 11 other Canadian companies.
SimpTek is an energy technology company that is uniquely poised to help utilities and their customers with the challenges of meeting peak power needs and saving energy. With carbon taxes soon to be implemented in all of Canada, SimpTek sees the need to provide solutions to measure and help reduce the carbon footprint of electricity consumers and the utilities. Simptek’s platform educates consumers about their consumption through an energy dashboard, which shows in real-time how much electricity they’re using and makes personalized recommendations on how to reduce it. For utilities, SimpTek provides anonymous, aggregated insights to help them understand what products and services to offer their customers.
Now in the 19th year of Deloitte’s Companies-to-Watch Award honours early-stage Canadian technology companies in business for less than four year. The winners are selected based on the potential they show for future growth. They exemplify many characteristics of Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ ranked companies.
SimpTek’s CEO and co-founder, Asif Hasan says, “SimpTek credits our unique technology approach. We understand that energy efficiency is not just a business, it's a culture. We take pride in helping both utilities and homeowners to adopt this culture with an exceptional customer engagement platform.”
“It’s imperative to recognize Companies-to-Watch winners for their early stage growth, bold entrepreneurship and forward thinking,” said Anders McKenzie, Technology, Media and Telecommunications Managing Partner for Deloitte in Canada. “By demonstrating high growth potential, these outstanding companies have the potential to be future Deloitte Technology Fast 50 candidates.
