TimeTonic, the first French management and collaboration platform that enables the design of secure cloud and mobile business applications without any programming, has conquered the French territory by becoming one of the first publishers of no-code solutions for businesses. The company is now looking to conquer the Canadian market, one of the most dynamic and innovative in the world. The new office, located in Montreal, will be supervised by Brahim El Hanafi, who has been appointed Managing Director Canada and Vice President Business Development.
In addition to the fact that its founder and president, Jean-Michel Durocher, is of Canadian origin and studied engineering and mathematics at the École Polytechnique de Montréal, TimeTonic has been developing ties with North America for several years now from its headquarters in France and it became essential to have a local office to exchange with its customers, prospects, partners and investors in the same time zones.
On this occasion, Brahim El Hanafi is appointed General Manager Canada and Vice President Business Development, and will be in charge of developing the business in Canada, recruiting and leading the sales teams and various projects.
Brahim El Hanafi explains:
"Our innovative solution perfectly meets the needs of accelerating digital transformation in many sectors. We will initially focus on the energy, construction and insurance markets, for which we have developed real expertise in Europe, and which are particularly dynamic in Quebec and Canada. In order to reach a maximum number of companies, we will both develop our direct sales and build relationships with service companies and consulting firms that share the desire to help their customers gain agility and automate their processes more quickly and efficiently with #nocode."
Jean-Michel Durocher, CEO of TimeTonic adds:
"I am extremely happy to announce the opening of our first international office and especially in Quebec, which, for reasons of economic dynamism and cultural and linguistic proximity, is often the gateway for French companies wishing to establish themselves in North America. Brahim has done a remarkable job in France and I am delighted to be able to count on him for this phase of international development. The year 2022 will be focused on the commercial part, but we are also looking at the possibility of recruiting engineers and developers in Montreal."
Driven by a culture of quality and innovation, Montreal is renowned for being a pioneer city in new technologies (AI, software & IT, electronic games, services, consulting...). Quebec also boasts an ecosystem of French companies and organizations such as Engie, Air Liquide, CGI, Airbus, Société Générale, Thales, Bonduelle, and Sanofi, which are already well established.
With an envelope of $130 million dedicated to supporting companies in their digital shift, the Quebec government aims to improve the productivity of companies through the development of new digital tools that are efficient, agile and easy to deploy. The construction sector, in which TimeTonic is very active, is one of the priority sectors.
