From our headquarters in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, we build websites for organizations and individuals throughout North America. Since our launch in 2006, we have served a diverse range of website customers—individual business consultants, retailers, construction companies, arts and entertainment groups, community and provincial sports associations, not-for-profit government initiatives, and more.
We believe websites should be practical and good looking. That's why, in addition to helping you attract new clients and retain existing customers, our websites are designed to streamline and enhance your overall operations.
For example, one of our recent customers needed a way to register new members of different ages in their association, collect specific details about each member, and process each registration fee, which would vary depending on age—all from a single online form. Since no off-the-shelf offerings could do exactly what our customer wanted, we created a solution by combining and tweaking two separate components. Our approach gave our customer what they needed, and at a price that was far less than if we had hand-coded a solution from the ground up.
Another customer needed a way to track repairs and locations of heavy equipment used for road and bridge construction. Before they approached us, they were considering a proprietary system that wasn't online, was difficult to learn, and demanded annual-use payments. We came up with a system that was web-based, secure, and easy to use—at a fraction of the price of the proprietary solution.
We're easy to reach, and easy to work with
A shockingly large percentage of websites wither and die simply because the site owners gave up trying to get in touch with their developer, or they tired of explaining, unsuccessfully, their needs to disinterested support drones. At A1Media.ca you'll deal directly with the owner, Douglas Helmer, who will personally oversee every aspect of your website from design and development to maintenance and support.
