Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, September 27th, 2012 -, a global leader in multi-channel marketing Platform-as-a-Service solutions, today announced the four winners of the 2012 SimplyCast Ritchie Scholarship given to students to help further their education.

Gourav Sharma, Dhivya Veerasekaran and Deanna Bru of Dalhousie University along with Mathew Stephenson of Acadia University were all awarded the SimplyCast Ritchie Scholarship.
