www.geonorth.com), a custom Information Technology solutions provider headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, continues to broaden their web site design and development capabilities and resulting diversified client base. The Alaska Aces, one of the area’s most popular professional hockey teams, is now powered by GeoNorth. Receiving great reviews from the public, The Alaska Aces site is ready for viewing at
As the Aces had an existing web presence, this was a complete web site redesign. The new site provides the Aces with a much more focused image with easily accessible action items such as merchandise sales, ticket information, schedules, statistics, and connectivity to all other league team sites.
“GeoNorth is what the Aces ownership and management team has needed to strategically align our organization with available technology. Our new site helps us do exactly that, and the web designers and developers at GeoNorth worked flawlessly to an end result we couldn’t be happier with,” raves Terry Parks, one of the six Alaska Aces owners. “After giving GeoNorth approval to move forward with the project, they were providing results long before we had expected them to be capable of. We’re looking forward to future site enhancements as well.”
“The new web site redesign, for one of the most popular entertainment attractions in Alaska, has allowed us to display our capabilities in a consumer-oriented market. A large majority of our web design and development history lies with area organizations that use the tools we’ve created for their day-to-day business activities. The Alaska Aces site should indicate that our talents apply to any organization intending to improve their image and their marketing efforts,” says Brian Minster, GeoNorth’s President. “With the improved look and functionality GeoNorth has provided to the Alaska Aces, they can now portray the image they want, encourage and promote interaction with the fans, and improve their bottom line through dramatically increased online merchandise sales.”
In addition to the site redesign, GeoNorth is working on additional functionality for the entire ECHL, the hockey league of which the Aces are a member. GeoNorth, in cooperation with the Aces and the ECHL, is in the process of developing a salary cap compliance management application, enabling all of the teams within the league to better manage that process. GeoNorth has also been able to assist the Aces in improving their presence on YouTube, the popular social networking video site. This has allowed the Aces to leverage video cameras already in use at the Sullivan Arena to provide high quality video clips for their YouTube channel ( www.youtube.com/alaskaaces09), which are also accessible directly from the Aces website.
