Moncton, New Brunswick (January 15, 2009)
With the global economy changing at an alarming rate, the difference between profit and loss often can be boiled down to understanding how long it takes to get things done. That's a bigger challenge than it sounds, and is why Atlantic Canada's own DOVICO, a leading developer of TimeSheet Software and Time Management Software continues to be used by businesses around the globe, including National Geographic, Vodafone, and DHL.
"In today's highly volatile economic market it's important to focus resources on efficiency. This can be done by looking inward, improving processes, streamlining resources, and removing employee uncertainty," says Yves Doucet, CEO, DOVICO.
Based in Atlantic Canada, the company was founded over 15 years ago by a pair of young engineers. Established in response to the emerging global demand for enhanced operating efficiency, DOVICO's easy-to-use web based timesheet software improves business productivity, project control and profitability. This successful local company can proudly boast that it received no outside investment and built its core using existing revenues, which allowed it to remain innovative and to quickly respond to both customer and technological demands.
Over the last 15 years, DOVICO has been able to grow its operations, enhance its research and development, and expand its market reach by looking inward at innovation and externally for strategic partnerships and development opportunities such as the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP). IRAP, an initiative of the National Research Council, works closely with small and medium-sized enterprises, helping them grow their businesses, increase their competitiveness, and enhance their impact in the marketplace.
"Our capabilities and methodologies have grown over the last fifteen years," says Martin Johnson, VP Marketing. "We have successfully evolved to adapt to the realities of the global business community, but our success is not because we do something different than anyone else." He continues, "It is because we have invested in the analytics and tested, consequently learning to do it better."
DOVICO has grown to become a leader for their eMarketing efforts which include such activities as electronic public relations, geo-advertising, e-mail, SEM & SEO. This is inherently important in a marketplace where they have more than 120 direct competitors.
Not only has DOVICO gained significant market share in this highly competitive environment but they have also been able to penetrate over 70 different countries including Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, and the Netherlands, growing their export revenues by 17 percent over the last year.
DOVICO's efforts have not gone unnoticed as they were recently awarded the 2008 New Frontiers Export Award by the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME). This award recognizes DOVICO for achieving recent and ongoing success in developing over 70 foreign markets, resulting in increased sales, profitability, creation or retention of jobs, and improved productivity.
A significant contributing factor to their international success has been their efforts in sales and support. Extended hours, banking in other currencies (Euro, Pound Sterling, etc) are only the baseline incentives for their clients.
"We work in a method that is conducive to our international customers," says Carolyn Tancock, Director of International Operations. "And to do that we have learned to adapt, and to be open to new cultural expectations."
It should not be forgotten that the in-house expertise in technology and sales developed at DOVICO over the last few years has produced substantial benefits. Not only has DOVICO redesigned their core product to add value but they have built the 'right product' with respect to technology and distribution channels for both North American and international trade markets.
Their flagship product, DOVICO Timesheet software, is an award-winning project time tracking software and time management software that monitors project costs, employee time sheets and expense sheets. DOVICO's ability to adapt to the newer technologies and business models has made the hosted online timesheet software (SaaS) a very popular option for clients in lieu of purchasing and operating the software from their own servers.
"Providing our clients additional value through innovation." is a refrain often heard at DOVICO, as they continue to respond progressively and proactively to the needs of their clients, at home and around the world.
