What I offer

My name is Irving Bos.

Experience and KnowledgeI have over 30 years of experience in Information Technology, primarily focused on “the Web”. I have seen what works, and what doesn’t, and am always exploring and learning the difference. My skill sets cover a large range, and can handle most challenges. If I don’t have the skill you are looking for, I will tell you, rather than trying to learn it on your time.

Focus and AttentionI offer a ’boutique’ experience, delivering a fully customized site, tailored to your needs.  I am not a large software company. This offers the unique opportunity for timely, personal, and clear communication accompanied by dedicated support.

Clarity and ConsiderationI can help you through the challenge of understanding the technology, talking with you in understandable terms, without ever trying to confuse or impress you with technical jargon.

Advice and CoachingIf you are looking for a completely new website, I can walk you through the steps required, respecting your ideas and time lines.  If you already have a website, but have questions or need it revised, I will work with you to make it right.

I look forward to working with you!

Portfolio

Here are a sampling of websites developed and maintained by irvinc.

Bear and Sparrow
A photographer's site. Full gallery, album and individual images are displayed. Fully update-able by the client. The entire site is responsive, reacting and re-formatting its display to fit properly on different screen sizes, making it extremely friendly on mobile devices, which is fastest growing display media today.
Edward Hagedorn
This site is set up to allow the client to maintain his own content, including adding and removing art pieces, and changing the classification and menu structure.
Living Hope
The client requested a rewrite of their current site to allow for more dynamic content control, as well as provide the option of having protected areas for members-only access. The site contains a number of client-maintained areas, including schedules, a calender, documents, membership photo directory, sermon messages, and news and events. The entire site is responsive, reacting and re-formatting its display to fit properly on different screen sizes, making it extremely friendly on mobile devices.
marie prins
This site presents a sampling of the writings and skills of the writer and teacher who requested this site. Fully responsive (adjusts to different screen sizes), and social-networks aware, it is a good example of a entry-level site which is still fully customised to the client's needs and budget.
sjb bookkeeping
The client approached us to rework their existing site, and to add additional information to it. We redeveloped the site, providing new, clean navigation which reflects the wishes of the client. This site is a good example of other sites we have built at a very cost-effective price. Call us for details.
alice vandervennen
The client requested a website which would show her art work. We delivered a site which allows the artist to manage all the images, updating the site without requiring our support. All visits to the site are tracked, allowing the artist to view statistics, gaining a better understanding of the appreciation of her work. The site also allows the artist to edit her itinerary of workshops and art shows without requiring our support. Self-enrolment into workshops, including wait-listing is also featured on the site.
van der woerd & associates
This engineering client requested a site which presented their skills and expertise, in a clean professional way. We delivered a site which showcases the services of our client, complete with specific examples of their work. The site allows the client to update the text and downloadable documentation (PDF format) for these examples without our assistance.
family flowers
This site was custom-built for the client, who requested a site which would showcase all the offerings of the garden center. We delivered a site which truly does that, and more. The client is able to post their own content to the side-bar, allowing for timely communication of news, events, and specials! We have also integrated an industry-leading email and newsletter platform (Constant Contact) into the site, allowing site visitors to subscribe to the client’s newsletters, as well as view current and past issues.
new street christian reformed church
  This site presents the church and its programs, with a focus on being a place where all feel welcome and a place for information for those who are seeking. On-line public access to all messages, along with scrolling banners of announcements and upcoming events are all part of this full-service site. Online giving has recently been intergrated into the site as well. A security and privacy feature also allows for posting specific information which can only be viewed by members.

Testimonials

..Irving Bos has been an invaluable web resource to me for more than ten years. He helped me build my first website, and has supported me ever since, including a site for the launch of my book. He has a knack for building solid, functional sites, and he’s always delivered exactly what I need, exactly when I need it. He is the kind of professional who will dig in and tackle big challenges, and always come up with a solution. It’s great to know that he’s available when I need help.

I really appreciate Irving’s expertise in building a website and how he is able to take my non-techie, artistic, ideas and translate them into an innovative, excellent website that has been vital to my career as a studio artist.
An incredibly personable, yet professional, and he addresses any question, or changes that I need with my website, immediately.
I highly recommend him.

…easy to work with – very helpful and ensures all material is understood. Communication is quick and to the point, designing and maintaining your website does not have to become your full time job – he takes care of it.

I couldn’t be happier with the services provided. From start to finish (and ongoing updates), he has gone above and beyond, creating a clean and concise website for my photography business. As my main source of bookings, it is imperative that my site is easy to navigate and eye catching. He not only delivered the final product (website) that I dreamt of, but during the process researched other professionals in my field of work and found what would work best in terms of navigation, portfolio set-up, contact, and social media sharing. He has always communicated clearly, in words that a “non-techy” could understand, has stuck with projected timelines, and is always quick to e-mail back with any questions. I get compliments on my website all the time, and refer everyone I know to ‘the guy who built it’!

What I like best about developing a website with Irving are his skills in designing a site that reflects who I am as a person and how I and my work can be best shown in an online presence. I also really appreciate his patience in helping me make decisions and changes to each part of my site. His price is very fair with no surprises as he informed me periodically how many hours had accumulated in designing the site.
