Technology changes rapidly and, as a result, so do clients’ needs. To better serve its clients, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton has undertaken a major technological shift by launching several solutions based on new technologies in the past year. La Presse+ highlights these solutions in an article published September 25, 2017.

LP Maurice: Emerging leader in the world of start-ups on Partnership Board

Why was Louis-Philippe Maurice, President of Busbud, named an external Partnership Board member of the firm? Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton said, “First, we were looking for a profile—someone who represented the future. Once that was decided, older people were eliminated from the list. We turned to young entrepreneurs focused on technologies, with an international presence, and then we found him: LP. He has an exceptional career path, and a degree in law and finance.”

Three new innovative services

When we talk about the firm’s major technological shifts, we’re referring to three significant new services. Jean-Paul David, Partner and Chair of the firm’s Partnership Board stated,Operiō specializes in cloud computing accounting, mainly for SMEs. Then, Catallaxy is a blockchain expertise centre [chain of blocks, information storage and transmission technology]. Lastly, Taxō, is a revolutionary tool that makes it possible to quickly take charge of processing income tax returns from an electronic file. LP’s contribution when we carried out these projects was unsurpassed.”
