FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Evolved Metrics Inc. [Evolved Metrics] has been awarded the highly sought-after Technology Accelerator Grant from Alberta Innovates.

“This proves the innovation propelling our product forward in the market is exactly what is needed. We are disruptors. Too many of the CRM (customers relationship management) tools widely accepted by the market are complex, onerous and not inherently user friendly,” said co-founder Chris Massie. “SMEs cannot thrive in today’s competitive environment without simple, yet highly effective, tools to win and keep customers and clients.”

Evolved Metrics is gaining the attention of and accolades from businesses of all sizes, as businesses are demanding sleek, modern and agile solutions to the complex task of managing business-to-business (B2B) relationships, including sales tracking and productivity.

“Evolved Metrics is incredibly grateful for the support of Alberta Innovates and the Alberta government in its pursuit of a simpler and more effective small business CRM product,” said co-founder Andrew Varsanyi. “We are confident this is going to be the tool that so many SMEs have been waiting for so they can stop micro-managing their current CRMs and instead focus on amplifying their productivity in 2022/23.”

Evolved Metrics CRM has seen significant growth in recent months as word has spread of its innovative and simple sales enablement.

Governments are investing as much as $35 million for the overall accelerator program in Alberta. This includes funding from the Alberta Ministry of Jobs, Economy and Innovation to Alberta Innovates to lead and manage the overall Scaleup and Growth Accelerator Program.

In addition to helping Alberta-based tech companies scale and grow faster, we are highlighting Alberta’s capability to the world, attracting international firms and investment, and creating a global mindset in our provincial ecosystem.”
