Thank you! Getting our Web site up and running utilizing SiteSimplify was straightforward, immediate, and economical. When first looking at creating a Web site for CHT Aerospace, it seemed a rather daunting task – I didn’t know where to start. Having created and maintained Web sites in the past, I know first hand what a time consuming, costly and problematic task it can be. With SiteSimplify t was a breeze. Creating our Web site took a matter of hours rather than the weeks and months it would have taken me utilizing traditional methods. All I had to do was choose one of your site design templates, add the content, and it was done. And now, from any computer connected to the web, I can modify and update the Web site in a fraction of the time it would have taken before. In addition, the valuable features that are packaged with the Web site, such as the calendar, the scrolling menu, the rotating quotes, and the newsletter broadcast function, simply add to the power of the Web site as a marketing tool for CHT Aerospace. Thanks again. I love the look of the site, and the ease and functionality of the program. SiteManager saved me a lot of time and money. Peter Brear Contracts Manager http://www.chtAerospace.com

It has been four years since Hourglass Consulting’s SiteManager made a huge impact on my business’s growth. Before using HourGlass’s SiteManager, my Web site was rarely updated because I paid a “Web designer” to make edits on their schedule. Because of the dynamic nature of my business, it is important that I have a solution that enables regular updates to my Web site. With Hourglass Consulting’s on-line SiteManager, I am able to edit my Web site content myself, whenever I feel like it. Now I am the Web designer adding up-to-date content, graphics, video, newsletters, forums and offering much more to my on-line visitors. I must admit in the beginning I was hesitant to use Site Manager and wondered how it could be different from my original solution. Now I know the difference and the success of my business shows! I highly recommend Hourglass Consulting’s SiteManager. I truly believe that they are the leading innovators in making on-line solutions simple and effective for businesses!

Darcy Whyte has acted as a catalyst for my OAC students at St Pius X this year (2000). First by training the trainer in a very proficient manner, with a wonderful course outline and also as a resource in providing Active Server Page, Web access, to our group. Darcy’s efficient methodology has permitted us as a group to create dynamic web pages using vbscript and ASP. This kind of experience would not have been available otherwise to my students, as we had not yet made server side programming an option for our students in the board. His attention to detail, his positive responses and his ability to find and propose solutions to individualized problems has resulted in a positive experience for many students heading to universities and colleges next year. For this experience I am grateful, and wish to express our greatest thanks. — Marie Brazeau, Computer Teacher and Site Administrator St. Pius X H.S.

“Darcy has demonstrated technical competence and a high level of commitment and responsibility in his multi-year management of an Internet based “mailing list” in which a group of people throughout the world participate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in discussions on topics of mutual interest.” “As importantly as the technical and personal commitment sides, Darcy has also demonstrated considerable maturity and managerial competence in his handling of discussions that have taken place that could be considered sensitive and/or provocative. Technically, Darcy has demonstrated DBMS and Internet skills, as evidenced by the long term success of the Internet list; his web site and his personal contributions to discussions.” Bill Arnold President W J Arnold Software Company
