Chief Executive Officer
IXIASOFT is a trusted leader in the content management software industry. For over 15 years, our customers have relied on us to provide innovative solutions that are both scalable and reliable for their mission critical applications. Every day, our technology is accessed by thousands of users in over 20 countries worldwide, allowing companies and their employees to be successful by enhancing productivity, efficiency and accuracy.
IXIASOFT was founded in 1998 as a technology spin-off of CEDROM-SNi, the leading news information distributor in Canada and France. Our first product, TEXTML Server, was developed when our founders realized the global need for innovative solutions that would help organizations efficiently manage large volumes of documents. Since then, TEXTML Server has been utilized worldwide by major companies and paved the way for the development of DITA CMS, our second product that we released in 2006. Today, we work hard to be the global leader in the development and sales of technical documentation solutions based on the DITA standard with our signature products DITA CMS and TEXTML Server.
Our passion for building great relationships and loyalty with others extends beyond our customers and partners. Since 1998 we have built an outstanding team of highly skilled and friendly people from all over the world. We are proud to say that many of our employees have been with us for over 10 years and believe that this has been key to building our excellent in-house knowledge and expertise. We provide our employees with a work environment where they can express themselves, while building relationships with each other to balance the highly demanding and intellectually challenging nature of our business. We strongly value teamwork and adhere to the methods of Agile development.
At IXIASOFT, we believe in giving back to our community. We are proud to support Centraide (of Greater Montreal) through a variety of IXIASOFT annual fundraising events, such as cyclothons, wall climbing-o-thons, ticket auctions, and “homemade” team lunches.
We also host one intern every year from a local college for a 3-month internship at IXIASOFT in the fields of computer science and programming.
