The Value of a Good Website

Alternatively, what are the costs of a bad one or no site at all? If potential customers can't find you or are frustrated by your site's usability, it's difficult to be taken seriously. Gain trust and exhibit professionalism so you can effectively promote your business.

University Lacrosse

University Lacrosse

US-based University Lacrosse (ULAX) develops men's and women's lacrosse leagues and tournaments across North America. A client since 2006, their online presence has evolved from a static website with four leagues to a highly complex database-driven site of over 25 leagues that continues to expand across North America.

Powered by over 300 database tables, ULAX can manage 90% of their content and data (rosters, schedules, statistics, season archives) themselves via a custom-built, web-based administrative Hub. Managing photo archives and video is made easy by pulling media directly from Facebook and YouTube. Online player registrations and merchandise purchases are handled with PayPal-integration. ULAX can also communicate with their players and generate payroll / expense reports with just a couple button clicks.

In 2017, increased traffic and the resulting server demand required the website be converted from the dated Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP) to a modern and popular server-side programming language (PHP). The site was moved to a more reliable hosting company on a virtual private server that could meet the demands of ULAX's continued growth.

We at ULAX operate a complex business that operates internationally within 22 different cities and Jason's (SpizTech) design and programing has enabled us to automate functions and operate more efficiently so that as we grow our company requires less time to manage. In this world of web based business and SEO it's a vital investment."

Lake Bonavista Community Association

LBCA

A prominent, Calgary-based community association that operates a 65,000 square foot recreation complex offering social programs, sports programs and physical fitness programs to its membership. A client since 2014, the Lake Bonavista Community Association (LBCA) required proper email setup, logo recreation in a modern vector format and a full website redesign that would take them from a basic static website to a modern, mobile-friendly one.

Driven by a custom web-based content management, LBCA can manage their news, events and program information. Facility bookings and availability can also be viewed online, via a custom import taken from their existing booking software. Clearer, modern photographs were shot for various facilities that were lacking them. Custom private board member and staff areas were also developed for private file sharing/storage and internal communication.

"In the beginning I was hesitant to build a website, all my friends were telling me to get a website up and running. I was hesitant as I thought it would be a huge undertaking to design it, add all images of stock items images of all the designs and maintain it, then came along Jason and SpizTech solutions. Jason and I have been working together since 2009. He created my company’s first website and then upgraded it with an e-commerce section a few years later. His work ethic, design, attention to details and efficiency have not only impressed me but every client that has visited my website. He has helped me with so many aspects related to my site and he has never once made me feel like I was pestering him with questions, any ideas I had he would expand on them to make them better, and his attitude was always positive and upbeat. I always felt like my site was priority number one. So, if you want a great professional website, with a pleasant professional experience, you’ve found your man. Jason Spisak!"
