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 fine-tuning an online strategy, programs and web site. He has provided excellence guidance on web functionality and has been responsive and attentive to our changing 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.
For more than a decade and at two non-profit organizations I have depended on Alan Dixon to help keep our websites delivering the goods. His technical skill and work ethic are a great combination for any organization seeking help with development of a new site or fixing an existing one.
Alan has been a real pleasure to work with. He has been an invaluable resource in the development of our new website and membership system, going above and beyond the call of duty in helping us get set up and comfortable with our new site. Thanks to his deep knowledge and experience with Drupal and CiviCRM he has found solutions to problems that would have had us stumped for weeks. He is sensitive to the needs and budgetary constraints of non-profit organizations like ours, and worked with us setting up our new server to ensure the smoothest transition possible.
