(February 5, 2009 — Victoria, B.C.):  Edoc Systems Group Ltd., a leader in operations software for the marine and forestry industries, announced today that it’s celebrating its 10th anniversary.  Throughout 2009 Edoc will be celebrating this milestone with customers, employees, and industry representatives.  

“We see this as a great chance to thank our customers first and foremost.  The original three customers that helped get this company going in the beginning are still with us today – we truly appreciate the loyalty and we’re looking forward to partnering with them for another 10 years,†says Ron deBruyne, President of Edoc.

Edoc had humble beginnings working on makeshift desks in the back office of a tug company.  Thinking back to those early days, deBruyne notes, “That environment gave us the first important lesson – listen to your customers to find the true problem they want solved.  We’ve managed to translate our customers’ needs into software functionality quite well over the years and I believe that’s one our keys to success.† 

Over the remaining 11 months of 2009 Edoc will be holding various events and promotions both internally and externally.  In the shadow of this tumultuous economy, they look to maintain the same steady growth that they’ve done for 10 years.  “As we’ve always done, we are investigating more innovative ways that our customers can operate their businesses,†explains Paul Cyr, VP of Sales & Marketing.  “During times like these, it’s increasingly important to run as efficiently as possible – we help our customers do that and see a direct return on their investment.â€
