Paul Emond, CEO Versature

Invest Ottawa Shines the Spotlight on Versature

On the heels of winning Telecom Employer Choice of the Year, we recently hosted Invest Ottawa in the Versature environment to interview our CEO, Paul Emond, about building and growing a business in Canada’s national capital, Ottawa.

“From Alexander Graham Bell to Steve Jobs, there has been a lot of change in the telecommunications sector in the last 140 years. Ottawa has had a hand in contributing to this innovation by being the first city to lease telephones for commercial use to Prime Minister Alexander Mackenzie in 1877, followed by the first common battery telephone system in Canada installed by Bell in 1900. Now, a local company called Versature has decided to continue tradition of evolving technology by creating a business phone service that is accessible over the internet. Their “Hosted PBX” phone service facilitates a localized atmosphere by allowing employees the freedom to connect from wherever they are in the world. With this, companies are no longer faced with the limitations of using a physical server (which resides in a single place) by allowing users to make and receive phone calls on the web.”
