It's hard to believe, but 2013 is nearly over!

This December wraps up one of the most rewarding, memorable and exciting years we've had. Between bringing to life mobilextension and launching our brand new website, we've also managed to kick off the Canadian and Caribbean Portal User Group, land as a finalist in the 2013 Digis Company of the year award, and score a spot on the Profit 500 list! (Whew! This holiday season could not come any sooner!)

Over the next month, we will be busy working with our 11th Anniversary contest winner, Accommodation, Information and Support Inc. on their brand new website. We are looking forward to see what great heights this great organization can achieve with a just a little help from us.

But- we still have tons in store for the new year. Stay tuned as we roll out some exciting new initiatives, such as our Solutions for Success session focused on how to grow your business with business process improvement and mobile solutions- held in sunny Trinidad and Tobago!

Of course none of our efforts and initiatives could have come to life this year without the commitment and endless support from our incredible team and clients. As we wrap up the year with this newsletter, we would be remiss not to extend a big thank you to each of you!

Many thanks to you for making this the best year yet!

Happy holidays from the Point Alliance family to you and yours!

Back in July, Point Alliance opened a contest to celebrate their 11th anniversary for a free website and hosting package worth $20,000 open to all Canadian, non-profit organizations. Applicants were asked to submit an application explaining how their organization can benefit from a new site. After careful consideration, Point Alliance is excited to announce that Accommodation, Information and Support Inc. ("AIS") has been selected as the winner of the website package.
