Halifax Water

Halifax Water needed to update their existing web presence to accommodate the future adoption of its customer support program. This program involves the installation of 83,000 smart meters across the utility’s service area that would allow them to remotely monitor water meters without the need to send a technician.

Alimentation Couche-Tard

OPIN’s mission was to create a global intranet solution that would allow Alimentation Couche-Tard employees, franchise operators, and stakeholders to leverage a single global platform. The platform would improve communication, apply best practices, and enable knowledge sharing while standardizing operation support. The retail giant has stores worldwide, under the Couche-Tard, Circle K, and Ingo brands, so the solution had to reflect one consistent brand.

Irving Oil

Irving Oil and OPIN have embarked on a journey to unify Irving’s digital experience, bringing six distinct websites under a single enterprise Drupal site. The solution OPIN provided was a website that delivers an exceptional digital experience to potential customers, recruits and stakeholders on a single, easy-to-use website.

University of Northern British Columbia

The new website was built to provide streamlined user experience, adapting seamlessly for devices and integrating legacy information. User profiling has provided more targeted information for students interested in the university’s programs, entrance requirements, and admissions procedures. The more than two-fold increase in student applications, attributed largely by the improvements to the website, has exceeded the university’s expectations. The increase has provided the university with higher calibre students, increased visibility and a better ability to promote research outcomes.

Canadian Paralympic Committee

The Canadian Paralympic Committee is a nonprofit, private organization whose vision is to make Canada the world’s leading Paralympic nation. Its mission is to lead the development of a sustainable Paralympic sport system in Canada, enabling athletes to reach the podium at the Paralympic Games. Helping athletes tell their stories is the most effective way to introduce youth to Paralympic sport. The Canadian Paralympic Committee tapped OPIN to build a modern digital experience, enabling athletes to tell their inspiring stories.

Office of the Prime Minister

The Privy Council Office, acting on behalf of the Prime Minister’s Office, required a website redesign that would captivate a discerning audience and provide them with the information necessary to bolster an entire nation. OPIN's creative director worked tirelessly with the Prime Minister’s creative team to develop new designs, which would later be recognized by the International Summit Creative Awards as the Best Government Web Design of 2014 and by Acquia as the 2015 Partner Site of the Year.

SOS Children's Villages Canada

With an increase in website traffic and engagement in recent years, SOS wanted to reinvent their website. In doing so, they hoped the innovative design would generate more engagement and would translate to more donations. OPIN implemented a strategic digital program to attract and engage donors for a globally recognized non-profit children’s charity.

Federation of Canadian Municipalities

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities is an advocacy group that represents over 2,000 municipalities across Canada. As an advocacy group, FCM sought to improve the look and feel of their online presence. OPIN’s award-winning designers produced a user interface that was not only clean and accessible but beautiful to look at and suited FCM’s brand perfectly.

Government of Bermuda

The criteria for the project centred around laying a foundation for a scalable solution on a single, stable platform that can be used for future years of development and expansion. The technology needed to transform and streamline the Government’s online business processes, integrate with external assets and software systems and make a splash while reaffirming the public’s faith in technology and how it can be used.
