We worked with John Ross & Sons to redesign a new website that would be capable of accomplishing several business objectives:

  • Modern, mobile responsive, website redesign on brand
  • Showcase services
  • Interactive map showcases multiple locations
  • Directory points visitors to the right contacts
  • News blog to post latest company news
  • Careers page to showcase available positions and collect applications



LMS Learning Management System

An exciting new project followed after the initial website launch. The team at John Ross & Sons were looking for a way to provide and streamline training for their staff.

Using WordPress and LearnDash we were able to create a fully featured LMS that they now use for training their staff.

  • Courses, Quizzes, Exams, Certificates
  • Fully Branded and Customizable LMS
  • User Creation and Secure Logins
  • Assigning Courses to Users
  • User Groups
  • Video Courses
  • Student Analytics
  • Course on How to Manage the LMS platform

Now they are able to provide training simultanously to many staff, available to them 24/7, reduce their training costs, and ensure that their processes are consistentent across many locations.

“Working with Nic to build our new website was an efficient, enjoyable and professional experience. He laid out all of our options and provided guidance and advice throughout the process. Our website now ticks all the boxes and accurately represents our company, creating a very important image for us. Nic worked tirelessly to ensure all deadlines were met (usually ahead of schedule) and was always quick to answer the phone or reply to emails. He delivered on all promises and exceeded our expectations. Through this project, Nic proved that he is not only capable of designing websites for small businesses, but also for much larger enterprises with operations spanning Atlantic Canada. I will be working with Nic in the near future on other major projects.“
