At PACE Independent Living, Karin/Semper IT won a very competitive bid to design and develop the organization’s web site that needed to be, first of all, accessible (compliant with the requirements of Accessibility for the Ontarians with Disabilities Act) and cost-efficient. One of the aspects of cost efficiency was the request to teach us how to update/maintain the website ourself.
Karin/Semper IT’s work for La Leche League Canada has given us a website that is everything we dreamed of but weren’t sure was actually possible. Karin and Alan’s ability to work together as a team to problem solve and find solutions for challenges as we transitioned from our old programs to the Drupal and CiviCRM programs has been amazing.
Hi Alan and Reema,
I want to add my thanks for all your work on the site. I sent a message to our Board of Directors yesterday and they are thrilled with the new site. Thank you so much.
We have gotten many comments over the day, very positive, very impressed.
I have known and worked with Alan Dixon for about 7 years and have always found him highly professional, technically proficient, dependable and creative. My rapport with Alan continues to be productive, collegial. He comes highly recommended.
A few years ago, The Tyee found itself in a bit of a pickle. We had a great content management system in Bricolage, but not a great commenting system. Alan developed with The Tyee an innovative way to integrate Bricolage with Drupal, which had much more robust community management features, including a commenting module. It was a first-of-its-kind innovation and it’s been working well ever since. We’ve since expanded our site’s Drupal functionality in small but significant ways, each time relying on Alan’s wise counsel and expert skill set.
Fair Vote Canada has worked with Alan Dixon of Blackfly Solutions for several years. He is a top-notch partner for NGOs like us who are developing and finetuning an online strategy, programs and web site. He has provided excellence guidance on web functionality and has been responsive and attentive to our changoing needs and quickly solving the inevitable problems and glitches that arise with web sites. We highly recommend him to other NGOs.
We've been consistently happy with the work Alan and his colleagues have done for us at CELA and CPCHE. They are always fast, reliable, helpful and leave out the geekspeak and/or clearly explain it so we can communicate effectively in meeting our mulitple needs for website building, re-building, maintenance and hosting.
I am glad that I was able to work with Reema Tarzi and Alan Dixon on a project involving the complete overhauling of my organization's website. They patiently explained all our options during an extensive and free consultation, worked on the overhauling rapidly and effectively, and were always available to answer my questions.
I’ve worked with Alan Dixon for several years and I can only say I am thrilled with the level of service he provides. I’ve had so many frustrating experiences in the past working with programmers who seem to be speaking a completely different language than me. Then I would find out that our inability to understand each other would end up costing me time and money.
Working with Alan Dixon on our web infrastructure allows me to sleep at night. I have absolute trust that the project is moving forward and will be managed impeccably. I will no longer trust my site to anyone else.
