A North American leader in business software solutions for small to mid-sized enterprises is expanding its operation to Prince Edward Island, says Minister of Innovation and Advanced Learning Allen Roach.

“Accelerating growth in key sectors of our economy such as information technology is a priority for the provincial government,” said Minster Roach. “This is an excellent opportunity for talented IT and business professionals to gain valuable employment in Prince Edward Island.”

CONTAX has been providing business software solutions for over twenty years serving numerous organizations across North America and supporting their operations around the world.

As part of the labour rebate program delivered by Innovation PEI, CONTAX will be adding 37 jobs into the Prince Edward Island job market. Funding will be granted to the company based on the number of jobs created over five years, a projected total contribution of $675,000.

The Prince Edward Island office has already hired its first employee, and is presently seeking to hire five more skilled Information Technology (IT) professionals. Current positions offered include SAP professionals and those with a technical background in science or engineering.

“We are looking forward to investing in Prince Edward Island and the people here,” said CONTAX President, Michael Pearson. “We are grateful that the Government of Prince Edward Island is open to working with and supporting IT organizations like ours. With its investment, our future employees will have access to outstanding training programs and a great quality of life in the province.”

CONTAX is a SAP gold channel partner and one of the largest independent SAP software and service providers in North America focusing exclusively on SAP ERP implementations and ongoing support. CONTAX won the SAP Global award for Best Practices, Implementation of the year, and the SAP Pinnacle award for Fastest Growing Partner of the year in 2010.
