MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 26, 2016) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ Solutions", "VIQ" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VQS), a global expert providing a cybersecurity protected technology and service platform for digital evidence capture and content management, announced today the award of patent pending status for its innovative high performance evidence based training workflow.

The patents relate to VIQ's secure digital AV capture of training procedures, protocols and performance criteria. The captured data and associated video analytics enable detailed trainee competence assessment and significantly enhance training and improve performance.

Applications apply to a wide range of personnel in VIQ's market focus in medical, law enforcement, courts, public safety and military. Training and certification for key positions such as surgeons, physicians, police, military, firefighters, border and national security agents and emergency response, for example, is enhanced by more effective development and highly detailed performance evaluation. The universality of the methodology allows future applications in other business sectors.

"Achieving patent pending status on our sophisticated workflow innovations is a tremendous step forward for VIQ Solutions," said Sebastien Paré, President and CEO of VIQ Solutions Inc. "These registrations safeguard the advanced workflow features and processes that separate VIQ from our competitors and formally recognize us as the technology leader in our industry."

The captured digital content acquired from VIQ's platform replaces traditional qualitative assessments, with replay and searchable content capturing the actual demonstration of procedures or protocols. The system provides a verified and trusted historical record of the training results of an individual or group that are collected, saved and reviewed.

The audio/video content can also be enriched with digital data, notes, observations, and other measurements specifically designed to measure and assess performance.

"The VIQ platform provides actual evidence of trainee proficiency in certain techniques and irrefutable evidence of progress," said Malcolm Macallum, Chief Technology and Chief Operating Officer for VIQ Solutions. "This evidence can be reviewed, documented and shared by administrators in an unprecedented way while maintaining the highest level of security and privacy."

"There is tremendous opportunity for VIQ with this sophisticated workflow as more and more industries digitize their training and workflow processes," said Mr. Paré. "Formally protecting our intellectual property was an important step in ensuring VIQ is recognized for our leadership in this growing market."
