Webmotion Sets Up Shop in Ottawa

Webmotion Inc. has opened its commercial headquarters in the nation's capital with an eye to accommodating the company's recent and expected growth.

Webmotion offers complete e-business solutions, including marketing strategies, Web site creation and deployment, hosting, and systems administration.

With sales of over $1.5 million this year (more than 200 percent over the previous year) and a client portfolio that includes three Fortune 500 companies, the headquarters will be home to a core team focused on continued expansion into the U.S. and international markets.

"We believe this office will provide a strong foothold for supporting our existing clients as well as for expanding our international operations," said Laurent Liscia, senior project manager and co-founder.

"As a Canadian firm, we have our reputation for quality and customer service plus an advantageous exchange differential as we continue to court a prestigious clientele."

Webmotion relies substantially on its proprietary software, WebDeployer. Based on Open Source software and the Linux platform, it has been the tool of choice for two of the largest U.S. Banks as well as a major European automotive company.

Owing to its roots in the Open Source movement, the WebDeployer software offers a cost-effective mix of scalability, robustness and versatility.
