TORONTO, ON, November 18, 2020 – Daisy Intelligence, an AI-Powered platform that automates complex processes for retailers and insurance companies, today announced it has been recognized by Deloitte as one of Canada’s fastest-growing technology companies in North America. Transforming the industry through bold innovation, rapid growth, and entrepreneurial spirit, Daisy Intelligence has ranked No. 29 by achieving 669 percent in revenue growth from 2016 to 2019.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector, which have transformed the industry.

Daisy’s AI-Powered solutions generate significant financial results for the company’s clients in the retail and insurance industries by delivering business recommendations and automating many complex processes that lay beyond human capability. Daisy has catalyzed a revolution in category management that has helped drive the company’s retailer clients to increased sales by an average of 2.9%; through optimization of their product and pricing mixes. Insurance company clients use Daisy’s AI-Powered risk management platform to save millions of dollars by detecting fraud and automating the adjudication of claims.
“We are honoured to be ranked among Canada’s top fastest growing technology companies,” said Gary Saarenvirta, Daisy’s Founder and CEO. “Daisy’s impressive and ongoing growth is only possible through the contributions and support of our employees, both past and present, our customers and strategic partners, our investors, and the technology business community here in Toronto. We are proud and grateful for where we stand today.”
“This year’s Fast 50 winners should be especially proud of this designation, as their role in the fabric of Canadian business – particularly during these turbulent times – is crucial,” said Erica Pretorius, partner and national leader for the Technology Fast 50 program at Deloitte Canada. “Their bold vision and true commitment to innovation allow them to not only improve today’s world, but also shape tomorrow’s, despite the constant uncertainty. This year’s winners are proving themselves resilient, innovative and adaptable, all in an unpredictable year defined by economic instability and the continuing public health crisis.”
