VANCOUVER, BC, March 13, 2014 – Tasktop Technologies (www.tasktop.com), the leader in Software Lifecycle Integration (SLI) today announced it has been named to the Ready to Rocket Information and Communications Technology (ICT) list. This is the third year that Tasktop has been named to the list  (www.readytorocket.com), which recognizes companies in the British Columbia technology sector with the greatest potential for revenue growth.

“We are proud that our roots are in British Columbia and excited to be named to the Ready to Rocket list this year” said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop. “Tasktop’s entire team is committed to the goal of becoming a leading global technology company and we appreciate the recognition and support we’ve received from the BC business community.”

With so much competitive advantage being driven from innovations in software, it is imperative that organizations find ways to optimize their software development and delivery processes. Tasktop addresses this challenge by providing fully automated, enterprise-scale integration among the tools that the various stakeholders in these processes use.  This integration allows development, testing, project management and IT service management teams to continue to use the software purpose-built for their discipline, yet allows all of these teams to collaborate in real-time on their work products. This real-time information flow creates enhanced collaboration and visibility. Individual contributors are better informed and save time. Management has greater visibility across the entire project team, providing information for better decision making and planning.

The Tasktop team consists of just under 70 professionals located in offices in Vancouver, British Columbia; Austin, Texas; Boston, Massachusetts and throughout Europe. Tasktop has been fortunate over the last several years to receive a variety of awards for business success and innovation. 

The Ready to Rocket list is created by Rocket Builders, a management consulting firm specializing in the technology sector. It requires months of detailed analysis using predictive compilations to analyze trends and select companies positioned to exceed industry growth rates. According to a Rocket Builder spokesperson, the 2014 field of contenders was highly competitive.
The list was officially unveiled to over 100 investors, professional advisors (lawyers, accountants), and government officials at an event at the UBC Robson Square Theatre on Wednesday morning March 12, 2014.
