(TSX: MDF), a Canadian leader in information technology, is proud to announce that the omnichannel commerce platform developed by their subsidiary Orckestra has been selected by the Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ) for online sales of cannabis by the Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC).

“We’re proud that our technology was selected for this project”, said Louis Fournier, president of Orckestra. “This demonstrates the capacity of our platform to meet the needs of a project that includes new brick-and-mortar stores, as well as the omnichannel infrastructure and logistics needed to handle online sales. This project also shows our capacity to seamlessly integrate cutting-edge ecommerce environments with accelerated time-to-market requirements. It’s a perfect example of the powerful operational synergy that exists between Mediagrif and Orckestra.”
