Northern Development wins ‘Technology Provider of the Year’

January 11, 2013

We are very excited for Northern Development (www.northerndevelopment.bc.ca), a client since 2007. They were named 'Technology Provider of the Year' for 'Invest in Northwest BC' web portal (www.investnorthwestbc.ca).

We had the pleasure of working with Northern Development and Concept Design Ltd. (www.conceptdesign.ca) to develop this web portal. SWD served as project lead and back-end development on this project, with Concept Design providing all of the creative design work.

The project began in July 2011 and was officially launched in October 2011.

Some of the features of the final solution included:

  • editing access to each of the EDO's and Northern Development
  • detailed project database development
  • provision of online training (live & video)
  • new feature additions/requests
  • mobile version of website
  • ongoing support and maintenance
  • overall project management using Basecamp (www.basecamp.com)

In addition to Invest in Northwest, we've also completed two additional community web portal projects for Northern Devopment:

The final community web portal in the series, Cariboo Chilcotin-Coast, is scheduled to come online in the coming weeks.

Congratulations to Northern Development and our working partners, Concept Design Ltd. for such a great job on this invaluable project.
