The dot-com bubble may have burst but Habanero, an Internet consulting services company, has delivered an ecommerce web site that, in just the first month and without any advertising, racked up more than $30,000 worth of new product sales for Teldon International, North America's second largest distributor of calendar products.
Michael McAdam, General Manager & CEO of Richmond-based Teldon International, says he turned to Habanero to help deepen his company's relationship with its customers. Habanero's extensive business analysis, creative design, proven technical expertise, and usability testing experience paid off for the 30-year-old, manufacturer and distributor of promotional products
"The benefits were immediate. We received orders within hours of launching the web site and customers are overwhelmingly enthusiastic with their feedback and suggestions for new features and products."
Neil Jensen, CEO says the gimmicky dot-coms are gone and the Internet is now an integral part of the economy. "The Internet matters more than ever because it offers visionary companies such as Teldon the opportunity to reach new markets while improving service to current customers.
With 25 employees working out of offices in a heritage building in the heart of Gastown, Habanero continues to flourish using a carefully managed approach that has seen an average 100% growth in revenues every year for six years.
