Why use CDAP?

If you fail to plan, you are by default, 

planning to fail

  • Some companies we have worked with do not allocate sufficient time or budget to carefully identify clear objectives, or required key functionality.
  • It is critically important to plan the strategic advantages and to design and implement the  business improvements that can be gained by an effective digital strategy. 
  • If you have an effective plan, it creates full  utilization of the system they implement andprovides a very valuable and satisfying result.
  • CDAP subsidizes the planning process and opens the door to an interest-free loan from the BDC to implement the plan

Incredible Design advantages

Recently a client said: 

"Happy New Year!!  Things are working swimmingly.  The dashboard widgets you guys created are extremely helpful and have made everything much more efficient.  I can’t thank you enough."

Our most successful design  and implementation 

Prodigm was engaged by a company that was  about to be wound up by their international parent company. The CEO decided to try one new "last-chance" strategy. 

We were engaged to design, develop and implement an automated sales process, responding to leads from TV advertising.  

It was hands-off, fully automated, and AI driven.

After 6 years in operation and ongoing refinement, it was booking $60 million in annual recurring sales and growing at an exponential rate. 

The company thrived and was eventually sold for over $300 M

Code of conduct for digital advisors

Trust is the foundation of every successful business relationship. Digital advisors registered under CDAP are expected to demonstrate a willingness to establish and maintain a trusting relationship with their SME clients. Such a relationship will require adherence to the following guiding principles:

  • digital advisors will be aware of and comply with all applicable legislation and laws at all times
  • digital advisors shall only represent themselves or their business/organization; they are not agents, partners or employees of the Government of Canada/ISED
  • fostering a professional environment by exemplifying respect, fairness, courtesy, and integrity in all dealings with the SME client
  • exercising neutrality in the provision of consulting advice and assistance to SME clients
  • managing any conflicts of interest in the provision of advisory services to SME clients, including refraining from providing such services to businesses owned or managed by the advisor or businesses owned or managed by family members and/or relatives of the advisor or businesses in which the advisor owns shares
  • taking appropriate measures to ensure the confidentiality and protection of information provided by the SME clients
  • acting in a manner that respects individual differences and contributes to a harassment-free workplace (virtually or in-person)

If CDAP determines that a trusting relationship between the digital advisor and SME cannot be developed, CDAP may decide to halt all activities with the digital advisor This decision will be substantiated, documented on file, and communicated to both parties.

CDAP believes the demonstration of the above-noted principles will lead to more constructive relationships and successful outcomes for the SME, leading to faster economic recovery and increased competitiveness in the marketplace.

Disclaimer: Although pre-selected by the Government of Canada/ISED, digital advisors are not agents, partners, or employees of the Government of Canada. The Government of Canada/ISED does not warrant the quality of the services provided by such advisors and is not responsible for any losses or damages, which may result from using the services of an advisor. Any disputes should be resolved between the SME client and the digital advisor.
