Mississauga, Canada and Gurgaon, India – November 8, 2016 — Mississauga, Ontario-based SOTI Inc. today hosted The Honourable Navdeep Singh Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development; High Commissioner for Canada to India Nadir Patel; and representatives from The Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) at SOTI’s new APAC hub headquarters in Gurgaon, India. The delegates discussed the burgeoning Indian technology market and how the Canadian government and ICT industry are collaborating to bolster Canadian technology and economic opportunities in India.
According to Minister Bains, “SOTI is a shining example of a Canadian company that is blazing a trail for companies looking to grow in India. The company showcases Canadian technology that is helping companies do business in India’s digital economy.”
Minister Bains, High Commissioner Patel and SOTI CEO Carl Rodrigues will attend several events scheduled by ITAC to demonstrate Canada’s growing presence and interest in India’s burgeoning technology market.
“SOTI’s investment in promoting Canadian innovation, research and development in the IT sector to the APAC region is impressive,” High Commissioner Patel said. “It’s yet another example of a Canadian company taking advantage of India’s engineering talent and expanding business opportunities. Ventures such as this are key promoters of Canada-India collaboration in the ICT sector, an important component of our longstanding and diverse bilateral relationship based on broad-based economic engagement and people-to-people ties.”
In addition, SOTI announced several high-profile deals with innovative and market-leading companies, including The LaLiT Hotels, Reckitt Benckiser and leading enterprise customers of Bharti Airtel. SOTI’s deep Android management expertise and mobility management market knowledge has helped it win these new deals and expand its operations in the APAC region.
According to market research firm IDC, India-based consumers will purchase an estimated 139 million phones this coming year, but nearly all will be low-cost Android handsets, many of which cost under $150. The smartphone market in India continues to grow, with a growth rate of 29.5 percent from 2015 to 2016. SOTI’s formidable Android knowledge, differentiated Android management capabilities, and global partnerships with the largest number of global Android OEM’s have allowed the company to work closely with India’s top hardware manufacturers to further promote its industry-leading Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solutions to companies throughout APAC.
“Our new facilities in India are part of our ongoing commitment to expand our presence in the APAC region, and SOTI will continue to invest in our operations in India,” said Carl Rodrigues, CEO of SOTI. “We’re delighted to host the Honourable Navdeep Singh Bains, High Commissioner for Canada to India, Nadir Patel, and ITAC delegate members to our India office to demonstrate our commitment to the region and to strengthen the Canada-India technology sector relationship.”
