Our clients say the nicest things!

Victoria Academy of Ballet

We just returned from Seattle at the YAGP Competition where we won top school (again) and 1st place in the ensemble category as well as 3 students came in the top 12 contemporary category and 4 in the top classical category as well as winning 3rd place in the senior classical….

We were very pleased not only because of the results but because all our students looked beautifully trained, professional, and such a high standard.

Thanks so much Sandy…we are able to achieve this because I have more time due to your system and your support!

We have worked with Applied Office Solutions since 2002.  AOS has been with us all the way and have more than met every need we have required very quickly and professionally.

Their ability to understand our company as well as seeing outside the box has enabled us to meet the needs of our clients and industry, allowing us to run seamlessly.

Over the course of time, Sandy and Blair have saved us hours and hours of time, monthly and annually, by reducing manual tasks through efficiencies in the databases they have created for our company, including areas we did not think possible.  I would highly recommend working with Applied Office Solutions.

Nomad Electrical Contractors

I would like to say that the system that AOS has developed for us is one of the best I have ever worked with.  The way your team was able to implement all the requirements requested and in such short time was something I have never experienced with other IT companies.  The system flows perfectly and as of yet there are no changes needed.  All I can say is WELL DONE.

Lifetime Networks

Lifetime Networks has been working with Applied Office Solutions for the past 4 years. They developed a customized Data Base that has become invaluable in our everyday work; while saving us thousands of dollars on unnecessary additions that we didn’t require. They were amazing to deal with and continue to provide excellent customer service. I don’t know where we would be without them.

Wes-Can Advisory Services

I have worked with the Applied Offices Solutions team and First Nations clients who have utilized AOS database management services. Sandy and her team quickly and cost-efficiently assisted in creating databases to meet community-specific needs to assist in voting, ratification and communications tracking processes.

AOS provided both on-site and remote training to First Nations database managers and were quickly available ‘on call’ to provide assistance in using the system. I have been very impressed with both their approach and their work.

Mariner Seafoods Ltd.

We have worked with Sandy Hamel of Applied Office Solutions Ltd since June 2005. In that time the necessities of our business have required multiple databases designed and then linked to work together. It is constantly a complicated need and yet Sandy and Blair have seamlessly managed to always produce designs that are effortless to use.

In addition to having multiple databases, we also have multiple servers in different time zones with different IT managers and yet, when a problem arises or updates are required, Sandy and Blair are there. We have never had downtime due to a database fault.

With Sandy’s experience in business, finances, and data management, she is a very valuable strategic partner to have. Her designs are very well thought out, incredibly flexible, and extremely user friendly.

Osprey Marine Ltd.

We at Osprey Marine have worked with Sandy Hamel of Applied Office Solutions since July 2000. Our needs are frequently quite complex and require a certain amount of flexibility not always easily achieved with databases and yet Sandy has continually risen to the challenge and produced absolutely seamless productive products for us.

Sandy’s skill is in taking a whole business view, merging financial data needs, understanding the outputs required and then designing the database to meet those outputs. Oftentimes I would approach her with a specific issue in mind and design request but always Sandy would ask for more information and put forward various scenarios, all of which led to a design much more flexible than I initially had requested.

Sandy values her clients very highly and we in turn value her. I do and have recommended her services gladly and whole heartedly.
