Servoweb got its start in the Spring of 1998
After gradating from BCIT’s Management Systems program in 1998, I started a technology consultancy called Servo Technology Mangement. This was back in the day when businesses had a hard time doign things like fax broadcasts, using Microsoft Office templates, setting up printers etc… All super easy stuff nowadays but back then the tech was comparably, let’s say rustic!
Then one day in 1999 a client asked me about building a website for her travel agency and I jumped at the opportunity even though I didn’t really know how to actually build a site. I told her it’d cost $700, because I thought that sounded like a good price, and proceeded to spend the next six months learning how to each page by hand by trial and error.
I rolled the knowledge I gained from that first project into the next site, and the next, and the next, to the point where after a couple of years I became a fully functioning front end website developer. Defintiely took the long way around but what I lost in time, I made up for in quality of experience and knowledge.
Flash forward a couple decades and Servoweb is now caters to all sorts of business shapes and sizes businesses located all over the world.
Most of our small to medium sized website design and development projects are created in-house, but we also have an network of contractors ready to roll when projects become more demanding. In this way, we operate quite differently than the typical web development company. Rather than host all of our talent in-house, we function more like a building contractor, and instead of subcontracting out the specialty jobs of drywall or roofing, we bring in people like programmers, and designers according to the needs of a given project.
Programming and graphic design are two parts of the puzzle but we’ve also got professionals ready to help you with strategy and incubation, project design, DBA or planning.
Whatever your needs, Servoweb is ready to provide you with an optimal solution coupled with exceptional value!
We don’t really do the 9-5 thing.
A word about office hours in the fact that we don’t really hold “official” hours of operations.
We’re avid, some say addicted, skiers so during the ski season we’re out of the office most mid to late mornings, sometimes later if it’s a pow day!
We still put in big hours but the schedule tends to ebb and flow according to weather conditions.
