April 23, 2012
Montreal, QC, April 24, 2012 - Silanis, the leader in enterprise electronic signature solutions with the largest e-signature deployments, announces that Branham Group, a leading information, communication, and entertainment technology analyst firm, has ranked Silanis among the top 10 fastest growing IT companies in Canada according to the 2012 Edition of the Branham300.

“I am proud to see Silanis recognized as one of the 10 fastest growing IT companies in Canada,” said Tommy Petrogiannis, Silanis CEO and co-founder. “With enterprise-grade technology, marquee customers, world-class deployments and the most experienced team in the industry, Silanis continues to be the partner of choice in the market.”

In 2011, Silanis increased revenues by 116 percent over the previous year. Several key factors contributed to this strong growth. In the financial services sector, the need to transform customer experience and modernize, tightening regulatory oversight, and pressure on the bottom line are driving adoption of e-signatures. In government, paperless mandates and the need for greater responsiveness, efficiency and cost savings continue to influence e-signature implementations.

Silanis is now responsible for processing over 600 million documents annually on behalf of customers. The company has the largest footprint in financial services with four of North America’s top 10 banks standardizing on Silanis’ solutions, in addition to the largest consumer lending deployment across 3,000+ branches. In insurance, eight of the top 15 carriers in North America are using Silanis to e-sign auto, home, term, whole and universal life products with their customers and agents.

Silanis is also the leading e-signature provider to government. Among Silanis’ hundreds of government implementations, the US Army’s enterprise license represents the largest e-signature and e-forms deployment in the world with 1.6 million users. As well, the US General Services Administration (GSA), which contracts for $40 billion in goods and services from the private sector each year, now processes all GSA schedules and modifications with Silanis e-signatures.

As the preferred e-signature provider for HP, Thunderhead and IBM, Silanis won top insurance and cloud computing awards in 2011, such as the IBM Lotus Award for Business Transformation through Cloud Computing and the prestigious 2011 Beacon Award for Best Insurance Industry Solution.
