An OCTAS for Ricardo, Turbulent and Moov AI 4 minutes

Montréal, June 202023 – My RICARDO+ won the Innovation and Disruption – SMEs and Startups category at the OCTAS 2023.

This project, which we carried out in close collaboration with the Turbulent team, enabled RICARDO Media to offer its subscribers a menu planning tool powered by artificial intelligence, while providing them with the best possible experience.

The OCTAS competition offers an exceptional opportunity to celebrate excellence in the field of information technology (IT). Organized by Réseau Action TI, this event pays tribute to individuals, companies, and organizations that stand out for their creativity, dynamism, and exceptional contribution to the growth of the technology industry. During its annual awards ceremony, Réseau Action TI presents the prestigious OCTAS trophies to the winners in various categories. The winners are selected by a jury composed of eminent representatives from the technology sector.

The OCTAS competition evaluates projects based on several key criteria, such as the clarity and relevance of the project’s objectives, the scale of achievement relative to the organization’s size, the real benefits obtained, the impact on the target audience and the organization, the concepts, methods, and tools used, as well as the innovative use of technology.

Mon RICARDO+ was acclaimed for its excellence in all these areas, demonstrating its exceptional value. We are very proud that our work is recognized within our industry.

It is extremely gratifying to see that when we unite strong partners with a genuine mission, we can achieve innovative projects that make a difference for local families.

It is often said that the key to creating relevant products is to address a genuine need. Well, we succeeded in offering powerful tools to quickly answer the famous question “What’s for dinner?” and just for that, I believe it’s mission accomplished!

-Alexandra Dion, Relationship Marketing and Loyalty Specialist at Ricardo Media Inc.

Receiving an OCTAS is an honor. We are truly very proud of the work accomplished and the collaboration developed by the teams in the three organizations involved.
