Cookout Season is Here!

GrillOur company takes every excuse we can to grill meats and bring in barges of foods.  Grilling season is a real thing for OmniSpear and our team recently celebrated the beginning of spring with our first cookout of 2017!  While the gourmet menu changes, we are sure to include hot dogs, burgers, an assortment of side items and beverages as staple features. Most importantly, it was a great afternoon to enjoy the company of colleagues, say goodbye to the cold, winter months, and hello to the gorgeous days ahead this spring season.

OmniSpear teammates take a break from the tech world every now and then, but goals do include the automation of our grill and heat temperature alerts sent directly to our phone.

We Love Employee Reviews!

James PhotoWe love receiving amazing notes about our fellow teammates.  This latest review on James Porcha from our IT department makes us so happy!

“Every team has that “go-to-guy” that it counts on when the game is on the line. The legendary Michael Jordan was that “guy” for the Chicago Bulls Dynasty in the 1990s.  Fast forward to 2016, LeBron James assumes “go-to-guy” status for the defending World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers.

OmniSpear, Inc. has its own version of “go-to-guy.” Most of us depend on computers daily.  So when something goes wrong, we need that “guy” to turn to.  OmniSpear’s version of MJ or King James is James Porcha, a help-desk technician at OmniSpear.  With over 10 years in the IT field, I know James has the experience to help whatever issues arise.

It is interesting to note that this all started out as a hobby for James.  His passion for technology was truly helpful to family and friends who encountered computer issues.  It has now transitioned into a successful career.  And you can count on James during times of need.

As stated on OmniSpear’s website, when it comes to buying or repairing computers and other technology, James has clearly established a reputation for himself as everyone’s – wait for it – “Go-To-Guy!”

New Look for Dr. Randal Haworth

HaworthFeaturedImageDr. Randal Haworth of Beverly Hills is one of the world’s most experienced plastic surgeons. We have been working with Dr. Haworth on a number of website makeovers and various sites for his products, including NightLift sleep lingerie.  For his main site’s latest revision, Dr. Haworth wanted us to utilize a sleek and modern layout, with seamless transitions between surgical procedures.  The result is a responsive site using a minimalist design. Customers can easily navigate beyond surgical procedure overviews, down to patient testimonials, examples of work and details for each procedure.

OmniSpear To Offer New Website Maintenance Services

OmniSpear offers Website Maintenance Services in packages with non-expiring maintenance hours for organizations that require website maintenance, content revision and updating services but don’t want the expense and commitment of a staff position.

A Flexible Solution to Website Maintenance

Our Website Maintenance Services packages have non-expiring hours which carry over month to month until used up. This is the perfect solution for any firm that isn’t sure how much maintenance help they will need. Website maintenance services can be purchased in increments of 2, 5, 10, 15 or 20+ hours. The more you purchase, the more you save.

Peace of Mind – the Expert Way

We are Internet experts – Internet is all we do. Since 2001, we’ve created and maintained more than 200 websites. Our Design team keeps abreast of new internet technologies and trends; we can offer a range of advanced skills and expertise not possible if you hired an employee Webmaster. Website revisions can be easily and quickly displayed back via a private Web address known only to you for you to view at your convenience.

Once the revisions have been approved, then we load the revised files onto your hosting server. We currently handle website maintenance projects this “wired” way for clients in Canada, United States and Europe.

The Simple and Easy Website Maintenance Solution

We make website maintenance a simple, stress-free experience. You will be assigned a single contact person who knows you and your project – you won’t be shuffled around and have to start at square one explaining your project and needs. OmniSpear prides itself on providing personalized custom service – it’s the reason so many of our clients have been with us long term.

Our multi-step quality control process ensures that your website gets the attention to detail and accuracy that is essential for your site’s success. Communications are easily handled with e-mail, fax and telephone. You can expect to receive a telephone or email reply with production timelines from our team within 24 hours from receipt of your website maintenance request during our normal business week of Mon-Fri. We always try to accommodate any rush or emergency changes from our clients.

No Billing Surprises

Client’s don’t like surprises on their invoices, that’s why we’ve designed a system that keeps you up to speed with what we’re doing and how long it’s taking. You will receive an email when a maintenance request has been received, who it’s assigned to, when it’s completed and most importantly how long it took to accomplish. All of these notifications are provided to you as they happen.
