OUR VALUES

We aren’t your everyday software company.

Respect

We treat all clients, partners, and employees with respect. No matter who you are, you’re welcomed with open arms and a hot cup of coffee. We recognize (and embrace) individual differences.

Loyalty

Forging strong, long-term relationships is what we’re all about. We like to get to know who we work with—we’re the type of people who call and check in, just to see how you’re doing.

Attentiveness

Listening is the key to success, and we’re all ears. Every client has a story. Our CCMS experts are determined to get the full picture to achieve positive results with each project.

Transparency

Personal accountability is important to us, and we take full responsibility for our actions. We operate with full transparency; the best decisions are made when everything’s on the table.

Our Motto

Our motto is simple: help customers succeed. Through the continual development, innovation and improvement of our technologies, products, and solutions, our CCMS experts aim to help every customer achieve their technical documentation goals.
Our People
Our People
Thanks to our brilliant team members, we’re able to build powerful, top-of-the-line technologies and solutions. Abuzz with energy and talent, our workspace doesn’t feel like a traditional nine-to-five office. It’s more of an open floor to brainstorm ideas, discuss strategies, and exercise our passions. Our personable, energetic approach is reflected in how we do business, and it’s a primary reason why customers choose IXIASOFT.

Our History

For nearly 20 years IXIASOFT has proven itself a pioneer in content management software, providing innovative solutions to manage, share and deliver brilliant content. Founded in 1998 as a technology spin-off of CEDROM-SNi—the leading news information distributor in Canada and France—IXIASOFT now provides leading software solutions to thousands of users in over 20 countries.

 

Our first product, TEXTML Server, was created in response to a global need for solutions to help manage large volumes of documents. Since its inception, TEXTML Server has been used worldwide by major companies like The Canadian Press, Reader’s Digest, and l’Assemblée Nationale.

 

Today, we’re global leaders in the development and sales of technical documentation solutions based on the DITA standard. Through our ongoing involvement with OASIS, we play an active and passionate role in the development and adoption of the DITA standard.

COMMUNITY

IXIASOFT is proud to support Centraide of Greater Montreal through a variety of IXIASOFT annual fundraising events, including cyclothons, wall climbing-o-thons, ticket auctions, and “homemade” team lunches.

Recently, we formed our very own soccer team. Every Wednesday, a dedicated group heads to a local park to face off—we even have jerseys!

Caroline Couvrette

Vice President, Sales
Instead of convincing the customer to purchase a product, my team listens to what the customer needs and proposes a solution that fits with their vision. Our goal isn’t to push people one direction or another, but to operate with an open mind.
Caroline has been with IXIASOFT for over 10 years. As vice president of sales, she’s in tune with what customers need, and an expert at providing them with a product they love. One of the best parts about working at IXIASOFT, says Caroline, is the long-term connections you form with customers and colleagues—many of whom have been with IXIASOFT for more than 10 years.

In her free time, Caroline enjoys golfing, skiing, and exploring new countries with her family.

Jean-François Ameye

Solution Architect
One of my personal strengths is the ability to explain or convey technical information in a simple way. Sometimes the user doesn’t speak the technical language, and it’s my job to bridge the gap between the two.
Jean-François has been with IXIASOFT since its inception in 1998. He’s our product guy and problem-solver, ensuring a seamless relationship between user and product. Having worked directly with most of IXIASOFT’s customers, he knows how to turn any problem into a solution.
In the office, Jean-François uses an old CD-ROM as a coaster. When he’s not working (which is rare) you can find him whipping down a mountain on skis, biking slowly, or playing hockey.

Stéphane Morency

I’m the guy who is always pushing people to be their best. My focus is to makes sure the team runs smoothly and provides a professional level of service for customers. IXIASOFT is a company with a lot of growth potential, and I see my role as making sure that that happens.
In 2013, Stéphane joined some of his old buddies—Éric, Jean-Pierre and Jean-François—at IXIASOFT to ensure the continued growth of the service division. Along with his band of managers, Stéphane oversees solution deployment, custom development, hosting, and support. With more than 25 years in the IT field with both technological start-ups and larger corporations, Stéphane has developed a deep love of lean processes and organizational effectiveness. Now if he could only apply this at home…
