Canidium, a leading technology implementation and sales coaching consultant, was recently ranked No. 37 on Houston Business Journal's annual movers and shakers list, the Houston Fast Tech 50.

The index recognizes some of the local leaders and innovators in the Houston tech industry. Businesses from all tech-related fields, regardless of their size or value, can win the award. Canidium placed 37th in the list, marking the second consecutive top 50 finish in the past two years. The awards are presented to the 50 local high-tech businesses that experienced the greatest percentage of growth over the few past year. Winners were announced in the Fast Tech 50 focus section of the Houston Business Journal earlier this month.

The recognition is particularly noteworthy due to the competition in the Houston area. The region is quickly becoming known as a major hub for burgeoning tech companies that represent a variety of industries and sectors.

"You look at the Googles, the Amazons, the really cool technologies – they are either in Silicon Valley or those types of locations,” Chuck Orrico, CEO of fellow Fast.Tech 50 company Dyonyx, told the Houston Business Journal. "I think one of the reasons Houston is outpacing the rest of the country in terms of business growth is that technology in Houston is based on very sound business models that know how to make money. They are not just developing technology for technology's sake."

Driving Canidium's strong growth is our expertise in the field of sales technology implementation and coaching. Every day, sales teams face a number of challenges that prevent them from effectively managing their operations. Tools such as sales performance management (SPM) and incentive compensation management (ICM) can help business leaders identify areas they could improve through crucial analytics and collected data.

However, there are a number of vendors that offer these tools, so it can be quite confusing for companies to know which software solutions are best fits for them. Canidium offers the independent expertise sales teams need to choose the perfect solution for their needs. We've worked with both the software vendors themselves and dozens of sales teams over the years, which means we have extensive knowledge about the various options a company has when it comes to SPC and ICM integration.
