Collaborative process

Collaboration is essential. Projects reach their targets when strategists, content creators, designers and developers understand and bring out the best in one another. 

Beyond roadmaps, milestones and schedules, we collaborate with you to imagine how your project requirements can best come to life on digital screens.

Accessibility

Part of connecting with your audience is making sure everyone can understand you. Accessibility isn’t always about disability, it is about all of us.

We help organizations in Ontario to make their websites accessible and comply with AODA and WCAG 2.1 requirements.

SEO

There are hundreds of search engine optimization factors that determine your website ranking in organic search results and they are constantly evolving.

We focus on on‑page and technical SEO to give you a strong base for your future marketing efforts.

Security

Often website owners don’t think about security measures until it’s too late. 

In addition to high perfomance web hosting we offer essential services to prevent WordPress site break‑ins and hacks and keep your site running as smooth as possible.

Are you AODA compliant?

When do you need to be compliant? Today!

Any company with 50+ employees and new website or major content updates need to be AODA compliant. If your current website wasn’t built with accessibility in mind it most‑likely doesn’t meet Ontario’s standards. By 2021 all sites for the same sized organizations in the province of Ontario will need to be WCAG AA compliant regardless of when built.

We are an experienced partner to help get your website accessible to level AA under the Information and Communications Standards of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1.

Wordpress Security & Maintenace

Is your WordPress website secured?

Often website owners don’t think about security measures until it’s too late. Answer the following questions to find out:

  1. Are your WordPress, theme and plugins up‑to‑date?
  2. Do you have a firewall and malware scan installed and configured?
  3. Is your website protected against spam?
  4. Do you backup your site regularly?
  5. Do you know what to do if you get hacked?

If you answered no to any of these questions then your WordPress site needs a security and maintenance plan.


Is your website mobile friendly?

Mobile is changing the world. Whether your website is there to capture leads, inform customers or obtain sales, you must ensure it works seamlessly with all the world’s latest smartphones.

A responsive‑technology revolves around the layout of elements in a grid. These elements can shift on the grid, depending on the screen size used to access your site. The goal is to ensure users enjoy a similar‑quality browsing experience no matter how they view your site. Responsive web development also brings search‑engine optimization (SEO) benefits. Not sure if your site measures up? Find out more about mobile‑friendly re‑design.
