They literally took the vision from my mind and had it on the computer the very next morning. From then on, it’s been a marvelous support system, from web updates, to email glitch repairs.

  • I recently started a new business. I was well aware that in today’s world of marketing, a good website was a must. I contacted Central Alberta Web Development for assistance. They helped me design and develop the best website that not only promoted my business but helped me to explain what my company was all about (text, images & design). I knew nothing about the process. But CAWD helped step me through it. I found her very knowledgeable and genuinely considerate towards me and my website requirements. They made it all happen. Everything I wanted and expected – and more. Thanks CAWD for your work and professional attitude. Thanks for helping me create a tool that my customers can use to familiarize themselves with my services as well as make informed decisions from.

  • Gazelle Group of Companies has three different companies each with a unique client base and different marketing challenges.  Central Alberta Web Development has excelled in meeting these challenges, by developing a specialty web page for each of these marketing challenges. We had Central Alberta Web Development design and develop our web presence which included upgrading our SEO and CMS requirements. Some of these challenges included a Business to Business purchasing process, upgrading a logo,  a new and fresh design for all the web pages so that each company retains its own identity while still being part of the Group of Companies and many other such details.   They have walked us through several processes including upgrading servers for our emails, which are linked to our websites. An overall budget was presented to us for each web site.  These budgets were respected and we were treated very fair in this regard. The effect of all of this was not only a professional updated look from our previous web presence, but also an increase of people finding our products, and then those same people staying on the web sites and gathering the information that they are looking for. I have and will continue to recommend these services to anyone looking to increase the web traffic on their web site.   Central Alberta Web Development has been the best web design experience by far.

It was then we realized why we were are all born to do something and something well.

    Margaret Krill Knox Presbyterian Church
  • When we first had an internet presence, we had our own web designer. When she decided to retire, I must admit I was a little unnerved and overwhelmed at the thought of finding a web designer to replace her. 99% of our business happens because of our presence on the internet. I knew that the site must be professional and be an honest reflection of who we are. In our business it is imperative that new material/pictures sent to the web designer must have a quick turn around time. After contacting several designers and coming away with less than a great gut feeling my daughter sent me a link and told me to call Central Alberta Web Development, Inc. The first thing that struck me immediately was that they knew what they were talking about. It was refreshing to know that this was their full time business and they treats it as such. Homestead Morgans is a large web site featuring hundreds of pictures and links joining numerous pages. It was a huge undertaking not only installing a management system but also changing host servers. I know full well just how time consuming it was to go through each photo and reformat it to the new system. Despite the massive undertaking our website was reformatted and up and running on the new server well within the time frame I had been quoted. There were a few glitches along the way but what really impressed me was that as quickly as I identified them, they were fixed immediately. The glitches were such that only I or someone very familiar with our horses would have caught. I have not one single reservation about recommending Central Alberta Web Development, Inc. If you want your web site to be a true reflection of your business and your updates handled effectively and efficiently then I suggest you call them.

  • Our company had used another website consultant to create a website for us with terrible results. After this disappoint with developing a website we were understandably reluctant to hire another consultant without doing our due diligence. We met CAWD at a trade show in 2008 and discussed how their company could solve our website dilemma. After several phone conversations and emails we decided to use the services of Central Alberta Web Development to create our website and are very pleased with the result. Our office and the Central Alberta Web Development office are located a considerable distance apart so our consultations were carried out using long distance phone calls and email. CAWD spent many hours on the phone with us discussing the look and objective of the website and patiently creating over a dozen iterations of the website, which she emailed to us for our feedback, until they was sure we were happy. In fact, CAWD purchased a new font just for our site. We would recommend and have already recommended Central Alberta Web Development to our colleagues and friends for the best web design.

  • Diamond Valley Gas Co-op has been working with Central Alberta Web Development for the last while in preparation on our new web site.

We look forward to completing our web site design and having a product that can provide our company with a usable tool for the years to come –this all made possible with the services provided to us from CAWD who we believe has the best web deisgn.

  • Having never had our own website before, we really had no idea where to start but CAWD took the time to explain our options and skillfully guided us through the development and implementation process. During this time we felt that we were listened to and CAWD's team took the time to understand our business goals and incorporate those into the final design; their business acumen and flair for marketing and design were integral to making this a successful partnership. We were extremely impressed with the final product and the fact that we are able to easily make updates and modifications thanks to an exceptionally easy backend system is a true bonus! Both during and post- implementation, we had exceptional support and our quirky questions were answered quickly and with great professionalism. We would have no hesitation recommending CAWD to any business looking for the best web design.

  • In a fast paced digital world, clarity can be overwhelming when selecting the right partners to align your business with. Creating an “on-line” business presence, it is imperative to have technological know how and strategic marketing solutions. “Digital Connections” are necessary today, yet still the “Human Connections” are the creative power and energy that deliver the product and message in a profitable way. I am honored to send this testimonial for CAWD's team. When starting a new business, it was this personal connection that made all the difference. As the On-Line marketplace is fluid, you need to count on flexible, experienced, dedicated, principled and highly valued professionals that remain ahead of the discernible trends in design and technological operations. I am grateful to CAWD for the excellence taken creating and delivering my on-line connection to the marketplace.

  • I contacted Central Alberta Web Development in order to create a dynamic website for my dental office. My first response back from CAWD was returned in a timely manner. After some telephone conversations and emails, a plan was designed in order for me to be actively involved in the creation and content of my new website. Whenever I needed their advice, CAWD's staff was extremely patient and helpful. Basically, all I had to do was send them the text and photos and they did all of the “behind the scenes” work. I would highly recommend Central Alberta Web Development for any business wanting a new website or wanting to upscale an existing one with the best web design around.

  • I was totally impressed with the time and consideration that CAWD put into our first consultation, we spent about an hour discussing my business, what I was trying to represent, who my target audience would be and how an internet site operates and triggers the search engines.  CAWD with their business marketing background was a great sounding board for my branding and how important all these things are in presenting my company in a professional manner.  They provided me step by step suggestions on where to start and the tools to do that.  Once I supplied them with the criteria they needed they began to work on the design of the website.  I did not have a vision on how I wanted this but I have to say that when I saw what they did I was totally impressed and excited.  My website looks professional, clean, easy to navigate and best of all I feel it captures what I intended for my business. They were a great resource before during and after the launch of my site. I also spent an hour training session with the site developer on how to maintain and make changes to my site; but best of all this whole session was recorded and sent to me for future reference.  I recommend Central Alberta Web Development as a great local business that has the necessary business knowledge and skills to help any business create a website that will have impact in the electronic marketing environment.
