It goes back to '99 when I got to know VS Accounting and we started to talk about how to better our business. They brought some good ideas for financing and technology. I know if we have a situation, I put in a call to VS Accounting, and the reply is quick. VS Accounting is there to back us up 100% and we greatly appreciate it.
I would whole heartedly recommend the team with VS Marketing to all my family, friends, and clients. The team at VS Marketing helped our office with the design and implementation of multiple billboards for seasonal rotation based on product line.
“We have been a client of VS Technology for several years. As a smaller business, we just can’t justify an in-house IT person and the VS Technology [Managed IT Service] is the perfect solution. I would highly recommend them as they are extremely professional and incredibly helpful. Their support allows us to focus on our customers and our business.”
I've worked with VS Marketing to develop an events planning and management technology that would help to build stronger, healthier, socially connected communities regionally, nationally and internationally. The experience has been effective in building and enhancing a technology that has had great success to date. That success is largely due to their creative, collaborative and professional staff.
VS Marketing employs a proactive approach to our relationship and through that approach has now created a revenue stream for subscriptions for users outside of Ontario as well as an online training platform to generate revenue for our organization. VS Marketing is quick to mobilize their team for support or ongoing development to continue to evolve our online offerings and expand our market reach.
VS Marketing can look at our sales funnel and strategically plan the best online approach through aggressive search engine marketing techniques which provide excellent organic traffic. Through their keen understanding of analytics and data, online communications and web development, we have been able to grow in our market when others have been declining and successfully add two new locations.
