2018 saw enormous growth for Unily in terms of winning new business and profitability and 2019 is set to be another record year. CEO of Unily, Americas, Jon Parker said: “The Unily product has always attracted global clients and our network has been set up to support them wherever they are. That said, we’ve seen a surge of interest in Canada and it’s time to devote dedicated resources to such a key region.”
As a result of the expansion Dayna Dautner has been hired as VP for business development, Canada. Dayna said:
"After over 10 years of working in the software industry up here, I’m excited to be bringing an amazing product to a market I know well."
Dayna has worked in the 'software as a service' sector for over a decade, including the last 3 in a specifically intranet focussed role, and was chosen for her technical expertise, existing product knowledge and familiarity with the local market. She will cover the whole of the Canada region, and will be based in the Toronto office.
In Q1, Unily will be will be teaming up with Microsoft to host our popular Intranet Masterclass in Vancouver and Toronto for the first time. The half day sessions will tackle employee engagement and give attendees a behind the scenes look at Nielsen Norman's Best Intranet 2019 award winner Flight Centre. The masterclasses are free to attend and useful for anyone who oversees an intranet.
Unily continues to feel the love in Canada
We’ve expanded far beyond our British-born roots. With more than 3m global users, Unily has found success in territories far and wide. In Canada, we’ve been welcomed with classic Canadian warmth and our presence has expanded rapidly. With a year-to-year growth rate of 274%, we wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on Unily's Canadian journey, from our first Canadian client through to winning the coveted Nielsen Norman award for a Canadian project.
