Bayshore Broadcasting has been working with Websmart Inc. since 2006 through two complete generations of our websites. It has been a joy to work with someone who has great depth of experience and insight into current design trends and ideas, while maintaining that personal connection that is increasingly lacking in this business. Websmart has continued to work with us to recognize our constantly evolving needs, allowing our websites to grow along with us. Their Content Management System has helped us bring many of our own staff from different departments and backgrounds into that ongoing process of keeping our online presence fresh, without requiring extensive training or technology skills. We look forward to continuing this great relationship as time goes on!

Websmart Inc. is the long-standing web design firm behind the Ausable Bayfield Conservation website as well as the webmaster and web design firm behind several government and agency projects where the conservation authority is the lead, including the Rural Stormwater Management Model Project (www.ruralstormwater.com). Ausable Bayfield Conservation has turned to Owen Smart and Websmart Inc. for more than a decade and contracted the firm to do its recent successful website upgrade to make it easier for users to find the information for which they are looking. The client has appreciated Websmart's knowledge of the industry, ability to create interactive features, excellent search engine optimization (SEO), prompt service when there are urgent changes required, clean, polished, contemporary, easy-to-use websites, competitive prices above industry standard, an easy-to-use and robust content management system that is able to maintain consistency of style while also making it easy for one or more staff members to modify and add content even without knowledge of HTML and web design, an extremely effective search engine that works better than the industry standard, knowledge of accessibility features, ability to set up valuable analytics and evaluation/assessment of how website is being used by users, a support desk work order system, prompt service by e-mail, phone, or support desk, interactive features, and more.

We have worked with Owen and his staff for a number of years. We have been extremely pleased with his services. Having a professional design and maintain your website ensures that everything is in working order, properly arranged, well designed, presentable, and accurate. In addition to the initial design, we have found that the ongoing maintenance has been, without a doubt, one of the most valuable services to us. Many companies rely on internal staff who 'dabble' in web site design and/or maintenance - this is usually time-consuming, non-timely, expensive (when you add up the hours) and results in web sites that are poorly organized, hard to read, nonfunctioning and unprofessional. Many people forget that an organization's website functions, in many cases, as the first impression of that organization. Leave the talent of web sites up to the professionals - they know what they're doing!

Websmart has created a website for the Bruce Power Pensioners
Association this past year, and we are pleased with both the process and the results.
Owen developed an attractive and easy to use layout, which has resulted in a number of
compliments from our members. He was able to quickly respond to a couple of minor
requests for initial changes that we generated. The content management features of the website work well and are easy to use. A good job, carried out in a professional manner!
