What the heck do we work on?

The list below represents only a small selection of work from the past year.

Rogers

Most of our work is for Rogers. We do a variety of customer-facing sites, some of them for mass or direct marketing campaigns, all powered by a core platform we built. We also spend a significant amount of time working on software systems for the company, working on behind-the-scenes sales tools for their call centers and field reps. We are most proud of the key product silos we designed, built, and managed and currently accessible via rogers.com including:

Scotiabank

We just began working with Scotiabank a few months ago. We are mainly engaged on the front-end doing UI and templating work as part of a redesign rollout in their International Banking division.

Manulife

We've worked with them for years, mainly doing a lot of educational and consulting work to enable them to set up and deploy their own email marketing campaigns and microsites. Recently we built an 'engine' to power a customized insurance analysis for their affinity sponsors. www.myinsurancereport.ca/ec/

John Hancock

We began a relationship with John Hancock a year ago and started with a small quarterly project to produce and deploy an email newsletter campaign to thousands of insurance agents across the U.S.

Sportsnet

We successfully launched the Hockeycentral iPad app and it cracked the top 10 of all free apps in Dec 2010. We also redesigned their site in 2010 (no longer live but elements live on in the new design).
