FoAN Canada

Friends of African Nursing, Canada, is a volunteer organization devoted to bringing better healthcare to African countries. Their previous web site lacked luster, was not fully functional, and had no one to maintain it. We built them a new web site with easy-to-use tools for self-management, but also provide the continued support they need to keep their site up-to-date and working for them - so they can focus on the more important things.

Party Connection Rentals

When Party Connection, a party supply store in Niagara Falls, decided to expand into rentals of large event items such as tents, tables, chairs and elaborate decorations, they wanted a separate web site that focused entirely on this new service. We created a site they could easily manage themselves to create categories, add items and upload photos. The custom-rendered graphical design is flexible to fit large or small screens.

NDT Products Ltd. has been a quality equipment supplier to the NDT community since 1977, and we have been their webmaster since 2002. In 2012, we completely overhauled the web site to not only give it a fresh look, but to add new capabilities such as a quote cart system, password-protected members area, easy to use content management, dynamic pages, and more.

IFPN

The International Federation of Perioperative Nurses was in need of a new webmaster for their web site. The site was initially hosted on a server which used a proprietary content management system that wasn't allowing the IFPN staff to do what they wanted, so we moved the site to our server and provided a custom content management system tailored specifically to what they needed. This made it easier for the volunteer site editors to make the changes on their own, but we are always available for personal assistance when necessary.

OPANA

The Ontario PeriAnesthesia Nurses Association fell victim to an unfortunate incident which resulted in the deletion of their web site with their former web provider. They required a quick replacement for their web site, but also wanted a custom design that was fresh, uncluttered and classy. We were able to accomplish all of this by building the site in stages. The site has many features including a password-protected members area, discussion forum, virtual board room, client-updateable content, and more.

ORORNA

China Emerald Buffet

This site was a total redesign from the ground up. Since the restaurant had moved to a new location, they wanted to breath new life into their web site. We designed a site that greatly increased their search engine ranking, was visually appealing and incorporated important elements such as a full take-out menu and driving directions with an interactive map.

Niagara Rails

Niagara Rails is a privately owned site for rail fans. It has an abundance of information and photos of everything rail-related across the Niagara Region. The site was becoming too unwieldy for the owner to handle, so we redesigned it to be database-driven with a fancy new layout template that could be easily integrated with all sub-pages.

ORNGT

The periOperative Registered Nurses of Greater Toronto is a regional group of ORNAO. They required a web site to help publicize their fundraising events and allow prospective members to easily join. They also needed a general location for their existing members to keep up-to-date with upcoming events, past meeting minutes and scholarship information. We created a low-maintenance web site for them which easily allows the editing of their own events calendars, uploading of past meeting minutes for the general membership, as well as management of password-protected content for Executive Members only. Future additions to the site will include a registration system for accepting membership fee payments online.

The Bush Prof

The Bush Prof (aka. Jim McKernan) was looking for a web site to provide additional resources for his students. He wanted an area where he could create and manage his own archive of articles. We created a section that is fully editable by him from the comfort of his home in the remote wilderness of Northern Ontario. The custom interface is clean and simple, providing exactly what he needs to manage his articles, without any unnecessary features.

ORNAA

The Operating Room Nurses of Alberta Association were looking to establish an online presence where they could provide important information to existing members and allow prospective new members to find out about them more readily. They also wanted to use the site as a meeting place for the Executive board to exchange ideas through draft documents, and to provide access to important forms and manuals. We created a password-protected Members Area which enables them to create and manage their own folders and documents, maintain their own user database, as well as easily edit the events calendars of all their districts.

Party Connection

Party Connection had an existing online shopping site which was not listing well in search engines. We redesigned the entry (splash) page as well as many of the static sub-pages to improve their functionality and aesthetic quality. We also added hidden keywords for search engines.

Court Jester Creations

The owner of this site required an online resume that would make him "stand out" from the crowd. We constructed a custom TV-style interface (complete with a working remote control) that would allow prospective employers to browse his work with ease without the need to install special plug-ins. The site is entirely HTML/CSS-based, and is compatible with the latest versions of both Internet Explorer and Mozilla (Netscape).

ORNAO Conference

The Operating Room Nurses Association of Ontario holds a conference every two years, and was interested in advertising the conference online. We provided them with a venue to do so, while also creating a permanent site that will host an archive of past conferences. We hope this will become a valuable resource for nurses in Ontario and across Canada.

The site includes a guest book, job database, multiple event calendars, bulletin board system, members database, full site search, transparent logging system, and much more.
