Making Business Online Comfortable Since 1999
Scott Vallance has been doing exactly that for a variety of clients for almost 20 years. When Scott started his business in 1999, he wanted a company name that was not too ‘techy’. The internet can be very cold and he wanted his company to take the chill out of doing business on the web, like a warm autumn fire does. He has held true to that sentiment over the years and works hard to create a comfortable partnership with his clients.
Scott has seen many changes over the past two decades. In the early days Macromedia Flash motion and HTML websites were the norm, now it is Content Management Systems (CMS) websites which are used by almost everyone. He has watched Google, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn grow while others like Macromedia, Napster and Pets.com faded away. Autumnfire has adapted to the changing environment and today it is an experienced web development and Internet marketing company that helps small businesses with their online presence.
Scott is widely recognized as a technology leader who works closely with clients to develop strategic web design and Internet solutions. Scott’s most significant achievement is his streamlined approach to customer service. His company is noted for its ability to complete projects on time and on budget while pointing clients towards cost-effective, pre-existing solutions. Scott has lead web design and internet-based projects for a long list of small to medium-sized organizations and businesses such as The Town of Bracebridge, Craftsman Construction Services, Canadian Association of Ice Industries and many others. In addition to web design, he specializes in Joomla CMS mobile friendly websites, mobile business applications, web hosting and WiFi Marketing.
Scott began his training in the computer profession in the early 80’s by taking Data Business Processing at Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario. He expanded his knowledge and skills with two additional programs, Computer Programing Technology at Control Data Institute, Willowdale, Ontario and a Web Master Program at First Interactive College Toronto, Ontario. Currently, Scott is a member of Burlington Network Group, Joomla! Website Design & Development Group and Official Joomla! Users Group. He keeps his skills updated through online learning. In his spare time, Scott enjoys learning about new technologies, playing the guitar and hiking around the Dundas Valley.
