Instead, it is sold exclusively through expert channel partners who work with local businesses, such as marketing agencies, broadcasters, banks, telecoms, and more. The business strategy ensures that these professional partners’ are able to tailor to their clients’ needs, armed with the intricate knowledge and details of a local environment.

Through a combination of machine learning, big data, and artificial intelligence, Vendasta enables its partners to acquire new clients quickly and delight them through a variety of service models. Partners can experience everything from DIY to fully-managed, white label services and products. The use of Vendasta’s tools and services improves a partner’s digital margins and shortens their go-to-market time. In turn, those partners use the software to empower SMBs with customized products and services that help them succeed.

Vendasta has been named one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Canada and one of the top 500 fastest growing companies in North America by Deloitte. Vendasta has also been listed on the Canadian Business Magazine’s Profit 500.
