Light Speed Technologies

The Early Years

From 1989 through to 2002, our primary business was custom software development. Through partnerships with Microsoft, Powersoft and Oracle, we provided Canadian companies with mission critical custom software. Designed from the ground up, we worked with customer specifications, integrated with industry specific solutions and interfaced new technology with legacy hardware. Our major clients included Toyota, Canadian Tire, Inco and Falconbridge.

A New Opportunity

Recognizing the epic growth of the Internet, we started providing web hosting in 1997 and by 2002 we spun off our dotCanada.com hosting division. As the Costco Canada Executive Members Service Provider from 2004 - 2014 we provided cost effective unlimited web hosting to over 10,000 small businesses. Outside of our Costco partnership, dotCanada has provided hosting to over 16,000 additional Canadian customers and we've hosted over 22,000 customers through our international hosting properties.

Moving Forward

Since 2016, we have offered additional service to simplify small business management. We've pioneered "Lifetime" offerings in web hosting and stock video to provide small businesses cost effective solutions in markets that have previously been out-of-budget. With our recent acquisitions of Pixel Studio FX and Stock Studio FX, small businesses now have cost-effective access to put together their own graphics without the expense and training required by Photoshop and without the expense and uncertainty of outsourcing.

I used to do my own book covers in Photoshop...

Then I discovered Pixel Studio FX.

Then I discovered Pixel Studio FX. Not only can I create my book covers faster but I can actually also do them much better because of the tools and library they provide. ... and I redesigned many of my previous books covers with Pixel Studio FX ... Plus, it's way cheaper than Photoshop and a thousand times easier to learn to use.

Easy, intuitive and powerful all in one tool...

You can't go wrong with Social Studio FX!

You can't go wrong with Social Studio FX! Social Studio FX saves me so much time and the results are very professional. If you manage many social media accounts as I do, you'll appreciate the ability to update header images, post pic's, and every other type of graphic you need all at one sitting, with the same look & feel for consistent branding.

PixelStudioFx landed me a $3,000 contract...

... plus recurring revenue, fast and easy to use.

... plus recurring revenue, fast and easy to use. Pixel Studio Fx is so non-techie and non-designer friendly. I used to rely on other people and have to wait days to get back an E-cover done. This cool software allowed me to land a consulting contract worth 1,000's of dollars just because it took me 2 minutes to create something customized.
