"I have been a subscriber to the OMX platform for the last year and have been thrilled with the service, support and the opportunities that were generated through the platform.
In my experience the OMX platform is a powerful, unique advantage in sourcing business opportunities.
The OMX Elite Service takes the original platform to an entirely new level. Elite's value is driven by the professionalism, up-to-date knowledge and networking of its invaluable staff. The Elite Service is logically laid out to reveal all opportunities, including those which may not have been obvious; that is its true power.
I am honoured to have the opportunity to work with OMX and recommend the OMX Elite Service to others with confidence."

"As a very busy manufacturing company with a long standing history of textile production in the defence industry, the one thing that we could use is having more visibility on current IRB initiatives that we can bid on. Currently finding relevant opportunities is a difficult feat and requires a lot of effort, cost, and luck. A common place like the OMX web-site will lend to not only finding these contracts but providing me with the important information needed to be able to easily determine if there is a fit for our company by understanding their requirements and having access to the appropriate contacts."
Cliff Latincic, President, Finnie Manufacturing Co. Ltd.
"As an owner operated SME with over 40 years experience selling high end circuit boards to the Aerospace & Defence industry, we are well aware of the challenges of maneuvering through large organizations and marketing for lengthy periods of time in this industry. At ITL, our goal is to focus our spending on R&D, continuous improvement and ensuring that we operate at the most competitive price point. When we are able to stay focused on the factory floor, we have the opportunity to provide the highest value for our customers and the end users at the best price for the tax payer. We are excited about the launch of the OMX platform and have been honoured to provide feedback as a beta recipient prior to launch."
Paul Cooke, President, ITL Circuits
"OMX brought us a real opportunity with a foreign Prime who has an obligation in Canada. As a management team that likes to focus on manufacturing, it is extremely beneficial for us to have OMX bring us these types of opportunities. Likewise, we are excited to be a part of the marketplace, where Primes can find us to fill contracts for products we provide and current contracts we can bid on."
Nep Sidhu, East Metal Products
"We've had a great experience with OMX. It has brought Cre-O-Pack real leads from small suppliers up to larger OEMs. The tool is like anything in life, you will get out of it what you put into it. Through both our own direct efforts and through our advertising on OMX, we were able to set up meetings and generate new business from the platform."
Johan Jordaan, Packaging Consultant, Cre-O-Pack
"OMX is a privilege platform which provides access to target market groups in need of our services. OMX provides an attractive advantage to Arc4dia because of the size of the platform and the niche sector in which it targets. The extensive data available is helpful in searching for Primes interested in fulfilling their ITB obligations."
Will Lymer, Arc4dia
"A big advantage of OMX is that they help us focus on relevant information and help explain the context. Although there are different organizations that allow us to connect with Prime and become a part of their vendor base, OMX has a specific value that provides reporting functions and added connections.
Kevin Schildroth, Abuma Manufacturing
"OMX is valuable, through the platform you can tell who is the right person in order to contact them. Buying a membership is worth the cost - allows you to dig down deeper into the large pool of data available."
Jerome Horowitz, Brotech Precision CNC
"OMX has proven to be my most vital tool used to get business development since it makes us visible to primes. Understanding that with a click of a button you get your name on primes supplier list - the ability is paramount. In the defence industry, you must try to be as visible as possible. Because you can’t simply put an ad in the newspaper to attract primes, OMX is the way to go."
David Green, HCL Logistics
"Through OMX, we have been able to make really good contacts that we would not have made without it. Its overall a great tool. OMX has helped guide us through the defense world and is a great tool to lead us down the road."

The dashboard is a handy tool that allows us to access everything with just one click. Its a platform for securing social and economic capital. We have been able to work with several large primes through OMX."
Simon Walker, Highcourt Partners
"Accu specializes in defence related translations, and OMX is the best marketplace that delivers connections to the right people in the right organizations. It will reduce our costs and allows us to spend more time on building our business into new markets while still having the visibility from a sales perspective. It's also great that it tracks the CCV content percentage per project as that is a very time consuming and complex calculation."
Steve Desmeules, President, AccuTranslation
