President's Message

When I founded HTC in 1982, my vision was to build a lean marketing and design firm that cuts through the clutter with breakthrough ideas. I looked forward to many years of innovative campaigns and branding initiatives, but little did I know how far we would come or how big our ideas would get.
In the mid-90s we quickly embraced the potential of the Web as a marketing tool. I remember how exciting it was to discover a new canvas to paint on, this new channel to explore. Luckily, our clients came on board too, and together we developed ground-breaking online strategies. Our pioneering spirit helped us launch one of the very first Canadian e-Commerce sites for Reader’s Digest. We’ve delivered effective Internet solutions ever since.

By 2000, it became clear to me that our clients needed more from their websites. Giving them control over their own content became a priority at HTC, and our solution was to develop IgnitionWeb. This Internet marketing platform has grown with our clients’ needs to become an incredibly powerful Content Management System, publishing tool, and e-Commerce solution. Our clients are able to inform, promote and transact online with this user-friendly and robust software suite.

Now our clients experience the benefits of a sophisticated platform, with 18 customizable modules to meet their needs. Because it was built by marketers, for marketers: IgnitionWeb is easy to learn, simple to use, and delivers tangible results. Our licensing program ensures that each installation gets the updates needed to stay on the cutting-edge and our scalable model gives our clients the freedom to add new features and functions (both large and small) as time goes by.
