The Quebec Technology Association (AQT) this week released results of a new survey in which data collected from 495 businesses with between four and 500 employees was analyzed.

According to the AQT, 67% of the businesses surveyed indicated that their revenues had increased during the most recent fiscal year, as compared to the previous year.

In addition, 86% expect revenues to increase again during the current fiscal year.

“The results of this survey of Quebec ICT businesses are very important in terms of putting new tools in place to encourage growth in our industry, which is vital for Quebec’s economic growth,” said Nicole Martel, CEO of the AQT.

The businesses surveyed also indicated that an average of 62% of their sales is made in Quebec, while 41% of them have sales in the United States and 29% in Europe.

“Sales & Marketing and exports are clearly the performance indicators that are inherent to the development and growth of our businesses,” said Martel. “For that reason, we will be offering our members training sessions and seminars on both of those topics in the near future.”
