Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2013/01/09 - Vendor Credentialing Services Canada Inc. (VCS), announced that it has completed a transaction in which the US based minority shareholder has sold its interest in the company. As a result, the company is now a wholly Canadian owned corporation.
As part of the transaction the company has changed its name to Vendorlink.ca Ltd. (Vendorlink)
This re-branding more accurately reflects the Company's vision and expanding product offerings. Vendorlink will remain focused on providing a web-based vendor management solution that enables hospitals to enforce their policies, and credential, train and monitor their vendors to ensure patient safety and privacy. With this transition, all company operations, including data- hosting and storage, have been moved to Canada.
"Our new name better defines our emerging position as the leader in vendor management solutions across Canada," said Michelle Floh, Founder & President. “As we expand our marketing and sales initiatives, the Vendorlink brand aligns our corporate efforts with our core goal of solving regulatory and operational issues that challenge healthcare provider-supplier relationships to broaden our customer base.”
“The organization and team that have driven the growth and success of VCS during its first sixteen months remain intact," concluded Ms. Floh. "All of us at Vendorlink look forward to continuing to build our relationships and reputation in healthcare communities across Canada."
The Vendorlink name will go into immediate effect across all of its locations and business operations, and in its external and internal communications. Throughout this change, Vendorlink will continue to actively support all existing VCS hospital provider and vendor needs. The philanthropic activities of VCS Canada will continue unchanged under the new Vendorlink name.
