Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (July 6, 2018) – OneSoft Solutions Inc. (the “Company” or “OneSoft”) (TSX-V:OSS, OTCQB:OSSIF) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary OneBridge Solutions Inc. (“OneBridge”) has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious 2018 ASTech Foundation award.
“We are honoured to have been nominated for this award and have had highly supportive sponsorship from Worley Parsons, who nominated OneBridge for the award, from Phillips 66, our first Fortune 500 commercial customer, and from Microsoft, our technology and marketing partner,” said OneBridge Chief Visionary Officer Tim Edward. “Although our U.S. clients are now evangelizing the value proposition of our solutions, increasing the awareness of our Machine Learning technology in Canada is a high priority that is just now beginning to be addressed. Being nominated for the ASTech Foundation Award greatly increases the visibility of our new technology amongst Canadian pipeline operators, industry regulators, governmental agencies and the public.”
“Although we are being judged against a stellar list of finalist candidates, we are hopeful that our disruptive new Machine Learning solutions are sufficiently innovative to win an award, given that our technology greatly improves prevention of oil and gas pipeline failures, increases safety and reduces environmental damage and operational expenses, as compared to what legacy systems in use today provide” said CTO Brandon Taylor. “We appreciate the support of Worley Parsons, Phillips 66 and Microsoft for this initiative, who each wrote letters of endorsement that comprise part of our application for the Award.”
