4WEB had its humble beginnings as an idea in the home office of President and Founder Ayman Hassan in 2006. The idea had grown into a fledgling company by 2007 and all aspects of the business were done by Ayman, including; sales, marketing, admin, support, accounts, and any other task that needed to be done. By the fall of 2007 we had built up a nice base of loyal customers across Alberta and Western Canada. In that same year we began looking for a suitable location for our own Canadian based data centre somewhere in the metro Edmonton region. By January of 2008 we moved into our newly built facility strategically located in NW Edmonton. Staff were hired to fill various roles such as Network Admin, Web Design, Technical Support, Accounts/Billing Admin, and other duties. Revenues continued to increase exponentially year over year and by 2010 plans were put into place to double our staff and increase our data centre capacity.
The 4 Team
Our team are some of the best trained in their field and we encourage staff to pursue ongoing training to maintain the 4WEB level of excellence. It is all too easy today to offshore to various parts of the world or use technology in the place of real people. It is often difficult for someone half way around the world to understand local business needs and trends. Our staff are knowledgeable and friendly, working in partnership with our valued clients to find a solution tailored to their individual needs. Our customer centric approach relies on feedback to continue to improve on our solutions and the way in which we provide exemplary after sales support. Our passion for our customer’s satisfaction permeates all that we do, 4WEB team members are empowered to do whatever it takes to get the job done. We are not satisfied until you are!
