Our Parent Company CSI
In November of 2022, CDR Software proudly became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Constellation Software, Inc., an industry powerhouse and second only to Shopify as the largest software company in Canada. Constellation Software (CSI) is publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol [TSX: CSU], a testament to its financial stability and growth.
One of the most unique aspects of CSI’s business approach is its focus on continuous improvement. The company specializes in acquiring software companies, often within specific industries, and then implements best practices to enhance their operations. Unlike many other corporate strategies, Constellation Software firmly believes in the long-term potential of its acquired businesses, and it has never sold any of the companies it has acquired.
So, what does this mean for you? It signifies a long-term commitment to both CDR Software and our customer base. You can have confidence in the sustained support and resources that come from being part of the Constellation Software family. This partnership ensures that we are equipped to deliver innovative solutions, top-notch customer service, and unwavering reliability to meet your evolving needs. With Constellation’s backing, we look forward to a bright and prosperous future together.
