Sleepless nights pay off for 14 Oranges

In today’s fast-moving, mobile world, if you’ve used an app to hear your favourite, local radio station, chances are you’ve done it using made-in-Richmond technology.

The name of the firm responsible is 14 Oranges, recipient of the chamber’s Business of the Year Award for one to 25 employees.

“When I started the company five years ago there were a lot of long, sleepless nights thinking about decisions,” said Sylvain Marcotte, president and CEO of 14 Oranges who accepted the award. “And I guess this means we have made some right decisions, and I’ll be able to sleep pretty well tonight.”

According to the company’s website, it was founded as a group of experts from various disciplines — managers, developers, designers, and graphic artists. That allows it to be flexible and nimble in its approach to web and mobile app development.

Marcotte added that the collective effort by the company’s employees is why 14 Oranges has been able to post remarkable growth.

It also speaks of the great sacrifices the families of employees have made as staff have been tasked with some long workdays to wrap up projects for clients in a timely fashion.

Among its clients on the radio side of the app business are New Country 93.7 JRfm, and 102.7 The PEAK.

Finalists entered in the award category included Physio 2U and Richmond Funeral Home.
