Survalent Technology Corporation

Survalent operates in over 30 countries, offering their product and services to utility operators around the globe.

Survalent approached us with a prioritized marketing strategy : migrate from their old web platform to a brand new website. The challenge with their existing website primarily revolved around convoluted content organization, making it difficult for the end-user to find what they are looking for.

Similarly they wanted to implement a site-wide CRM integration strategy with Salesforce. This would allow them to centralize and manage leads, support requests and contact inquiries from one system.

We worked with the wonderful people in Survalent’s marketing department to develop a concise content, layout and design strategy to carry their new website into a modern architecture that can be expanded and adjusted seamlessly and painlessly.

The end result is a website that is easy to navigate and organized intuitively. The client was very pleased with the result and continues to engage us for ongoing improvements.

Redundant Infrastructure

Survalent’s core business model is to offer support, services and product solutions that allow utility companies to streamline operations, increase availability and efficiencies.

Because these elements form the core of Survalent’s business model, it was an imperative requirement that the website be implemented and launched with high availability in mind. Up-time was crucial from a business standpoint.

We developed a fully redundant solution for Survalent that implemented load balancing, caching, distributed filesystems and clustered databases across redundant hardware. This dramatically increased the availability of Survalent’s web presence.

Toronto Web Development

Web Development

Each project we encounter, large or small, typically will have custom requirements. Through analysis, due diligence and research we will formulate a concise development strategy where the appropriate technology, CMS or framework will be chosen that best suits the unique requirements from timeline to budget to integration and functionality.

We will work with you to develop a concise development plan. We can custom develop on top of an existing CMS or roll out a web framework from scratch.

Toronto responsive web design


Developing a website that is responsive is no longer a new requirement, its mandatory. We use industry standard tools and best practices to incorporate framework and scaffolding to ensure your website responds on the many different screen widths across many different mobile and tablet devices.

Gone are the days of a “mobile only” website. We will design your site for desktop, mobile, tablet, portrait and landscape viewing. And it will be beautiful!

At Shift8, we cater to all sorts of businesses in and around Toronto from small, medium, large and enterprise projects. We are comfortable adapting to your existing processes and try our best to compliment communication and collaboration to the point where every step of the way is as efficient as possible.

Our projects are typically broken into 5 or 6 key “milestones” which focus heavily on the design collaboration in the early stages. We mock-up any interactive or unique page within your new website so that you get a clear picture of exactly how your design vision will be translated into a functional website.

Using tools like Basecamp and Redpen, we try to make the process simple yet fun and effective. We will revise your vision as many times as necessary until you are 100% happy, before moving to the functional, content integration and development phases of the project.

For the projects that are more development heavy, we make sure a considerable amount of effort is spent in the preliminary stages of project planning. We strongly believe that full transparency with a project development plan ensures that expectations are met on both sides between us and the client. We want to ensure that the project is broken into intelligent phases with accurate budgetary and timeline breakdowns.

Approved design mock-ups get translated into a browse-ready project site where we revise again and again until you are satisfied. Client satisfaction is our lifeblood and main motivation. We aren’t happy until you are.
