Finding a first-rate web design team is challenging for a not-for-profit organization, so we feel extremely fortunate to have connected with Intellect Solutions Inc. The communication during the entire process was outstanding and it was obvious from the onset that they were interested in developing a long-term relationship with us. Intellect Solutions Inc. paid attention to every detail of our design, layout, color palate, branding, presentation, and search engine optimization. They welcomed our input and patiently heard all our concerns and recommendations and their communication and response time is excellent. We continue to use Intellect Solutions Inc. to manage our site updates, and to create new features. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a website that is top quality with superb functionality.
I've been working with Intellect Solutions for several years. They've built the backends for many of the sites that I've designed, as well as hosting my own site. Koji and Sheryl have always been extremely helpful and responsive. For web programming, I wouldn't go with anyone else - Koji is really knowledgeable and also very easy to deal with - not a common trait in the other coders I've dealt with. When I design a site, I know that it will look exactly the same when it's built, and that it will function as planned - again, not something that I've had much luck with elsewhere. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!
We have been using Intellect’s hosting services for about 5 years. Our sites run smoothly with little or no downtime and if an issue arises we can call Intellect for quick, timely solutions to our questions and problems. Email setup and additional email features such as mailing lists, forwarding and spam filters have been great. The Cpanel works well for setting up hosting options and there are lots of add-on programs available. Hosting pricing has been competitive and when we needed more space, it was easily acquired. We don't have time for downtime or problems and Intellect keeps our communications going.
Intellect Solutions Inc. has been providing me with high-quality hosting since 2003 and I have been very satisfied with their services. My clients expect only the best hosting for their custom-designed websites and I feel confident using ISI to fulfil that expectation. Koji Sato has always been extremely helpful, providing prompt and expert advice on any technical matter. I am thankful to have ISI in my corner and look forward to employing their services for many years to come.
Koji Sato has been a programming partner to Serengeti Design since 2004. We have worked with him on countless website projects over the years and continue to recommend him to our clients whenever possible. Koji is one of those rare programmers that offers an encyclopedic technical knowledge of web programming, coupled with highly responsive "get-it-done" service and outstanding attention to detail. Serengeti's clients love Koji and always appreciate his courteous, cheerful attitude. He is a vital part of our business and we continue to entrust our most challenging projects to him with absolute confidence.
I can count on Intellect Solutions to build and maintain the custom websites that I design, and am always pleased that they develop into exactly what my clients and I envision. A full service provider is what I require, and that is what we receive with ISI.
Once you decide to work with Koji, you will soon discover not only he has high work ethic, but also he loves what he does. His satisfaction-guaranteed attitude makes you trust and continue to work with him.
Koji was very helpful getting my Shopify store up and running quickly. He made a number of enhancements to provide my customers with a streamlined and smooth checkout. Koji provides years of insight on ways to integrate various online tools to help any business owner. I am very happy to recommend Koji to anyone who needs help with their online venture.
We were looking for a knowledgeable, reliable and flexible web development consultant, following an agency relationship that resulted in a problematic site. Without the benefit of a proper briefing, Koji was able to dive into work with us, assess the site structure and code, and begin helping us right away. Over time, he has delivered not just quality work, but also fair and balanced assessments of his predecessors’ work, and great ideas for the future. I would not hesitate to recommend Koji as a developer, strategist and trusted advisor.
My requirements were for a single fast loading page that also had a gallery of past projects and a contact device that didn’t leave me open to spam. So basically I wanted my cake and eat it too. Intellect Solutions were quick to divine my vision and produce a slick and eye catching site that satisfied my needs. I have also received a lot of good information and advice with regard to Google Analytics and Adwords that help me monitor site visitors.
I would describe Intellect Solutions as professional, reliable with a strong work ethic which is rare for most web programming companies. Whenever I need help with my websites, VeturoTherapy.com & GlovesForTherapy.com, I get a prompt answer and the problem is solved in a timely manner. Always they can resolve delicate issues regarding server, updates, themes, etc. to make sure everything works perfectly and me as a client to be pleased with the results. We work together since 2013 and I’ve never been disappointed since then. It is a company I can count on.
I would highly recommend Intellect Solutions Inc for website and programming services. If you have something that is not working at your website, Intellect Solutions has the solution!
Working with Sheryl and the team at Intellect Solutions was so easy and stress-free. They really felt like an extension to our small marketing team and always made us feel like a valued client, with clear communications and impressive turnaround times.
This Wordpress website features a multi-column copy layout for a clean, user-friendly website. Other features of note include a members only password-protected section, left-aligned layout, and simple content management.
May 23, 2012 — Kids Up Front Online Ticket Donation System
The OTS (Online Ticket System) for Kids up Front is custom catered for the Vancouver chapter. It integrates many functions into an online solution to handle a ticket donation workflow from the initial donation to final allocation and reporting requirements.
This website facilitates online donations via a simplified three-step donation form. Donated events can then be moderated by various administrative staff, and later, announced to applicable agencies via a calendar and mass email distribution. Agencies can then request particular tickets that they can use, and these requests are managed on the administrative side, via an allocation workflow.
As this project was replacing an existing and active service, mass data migration was also required, which included moving numerous donated event details, and more importantly, a full migration of existing user accounts, including detailed profile information.
Additional functionality incorporates the ability to perform basic CRM functions, and a number of detailed and flexible reports can be generated.
About Kids up Front:
In 1999, when Kids Up Front founder, John Dalziel was surrounded by empty seats at a world-class event, he knew there had to be a way to get kids into those seats who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to attend. John took his idea to a group of business minded individuals, the Kids Up Front idea was launched in 2000, under the leadership of Barb Radu, Executive Director.
Kids Up Front created partnerships with child-serving charitable agencies, who in turn select the ticket recipients from within their programs. By implementing a program that wraps a process around tickets “in” and tickets “out,” including quality control measures, Kids Up Front is able to distribute tickets fairly and efficiently to thousands of kids. While Kids Up Front’s partner agencies provide food, shelter, clothing and counseling, Kids Up Front provides the nourishment of the spirit.
“These experiences are so far beyond what many of these kids ever dreamed, says Barb Radu, founder and executive director. “But are the very things that so many kids are missing — an opportunity to have fun, spend quality time with family, mentors or peers, and just enjoy being a kid, if only for a few hours.”
The founding directors never have looked at a “ticket” in the same way again! The tickets are the healing tools that can build trusting relationships, grow self esteem, enhance socialization and strengthen a family.
Kids Up Front is providing so many unique opportunities! Kids are attending sporting events, theatre productions, concerts, theme parks and world-class events! And, they’re having first-ever vacations out of town, horseback riding, experiencing VIP treatment with celebrity sports figures whether skating or experiencing a mini Olympic event. Kids Up Front kids are participating in hands-on museum exhibits, drama and singing camps. The best news? The list of opportunities continues to grow! See Programs for a list of our entertainment partners.
NGRAIN required eCommerce integration for the existing NGRAIN website. Leveraging from the existing website, Shopify was chosen for its ability to easily integrate with other 3rd party cloud applications, included security measures and in this case, facilitating product download and licensing by FetchApp, and CRM management by Salesforce.
Shopify also provides the ability to customize the presentation theme, so we were able to closely match the existing website design for a more seamless user experience between the product and shopping pages. Payment integration with Moneris was easily set up and configured.
March 15, 2013 — Urban Body Laser - Shopify Store Setup & Configuration
Urban Body Laser was looking for a eCommerce website to coincide with the launch of their new company website. Initially this was to be a Magento hosted store, however, due to the amount of effort still required and numerous constraints on the hosted Magento platform (it did not support the desired payment gateway etc.), Intellect Solutions Inc, recommended Shopify.
Shopify is a Canadian owned and operated hosted eCommerce platform, which was able to supply an out of the box theme which required minimal customization to fit with the style Urban Body Laser was looking for. Shopify also supported the desired payment gateway, and Intellect was able to export many of the existing Magento products directly into the new Shopify store.
July 5, 2013 — CSA Transportation - Homepage Refresh

April 25, 2013 — PRT Promo Products: A Division of PRT Growing Services, Ltd.

The site required some more advanced eCommerce integration to include mechanisms to handle distributor codes, directory level integration with the existing corporate site, bulk product pricing, specialized label printing per product, multiple shipping origins, real-time courier pricing and currency options. Intellect Solutions Inc., was able to re-use the majority of existing themed assets from the corporate site to better economize the Promo site, while maintaining a professional custom design.
