For its efforts to design and deliver innovative Citrix solutions to customers over the past year, Third Octet, a PLATINUM Citrix partner, has been named a finalist in the 2021 Citrix Innovation Awards for Partners. Third Octet was chosen from applicants across the globe, by demonstrating a transformative approach to the Future of Work and the myriad challenges customers continue to face.

Third Octet was selected as a result of their exceptional work helping the University of Toronto Mississauga​ (UTM) not only survive the challenges and changes during the pandemic but reimagine student learning and discover a new competitive edge.

“Working alongside UTM was both an honour and a privilege. Overcoming the opportunities and challenges presented by UTM, coupled with aggressive timelines, was certainly a stand-out achievement for both organizations; yet, the most fascinating and rewarding aspect was being part of a transformative moment in the future of education,” said Matthew Metelsky, CEO of Third Octet.

Third Octet designs and implements technology solutions as a means to anywhere access for Work Life Balance, improving engagement, productivity, and profit for clients. Third Octet’s mission involves Bettering the World Through Technology. Third Octet was also a Canada’s 50 Best Managed IT Company Award winner in 2020.
