In a press release dated November 7th 2019, Kognitiv Spark received a Companies-to-Watch award as a part of Deloitte’s annual Technology Fast 50™ Awards. The award highlights emerging companies that exhibit strong growth and show potential to be a future candidate for the Technology Fast 50 award.

Kognitiv Spark‘s CEO, Yan Simard, credits the technical innovations achieved by the Kognitiv Spark team to create a secure and reliable augmented reality remote support tool and the deep expertise of company leadership in tandem with a strong, supportive network of industry partners with the company’s early–stage success.

“We’re excited to be receiving this recognition from Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50™ Awards. It stands as a testament to everything we’ve built here at Kognitiv Spark and the efficiencies our customers have been able to achieve using our product,” said Simard.
