Blog - Cambridge Chamber of Commerce

The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce has a brand-new online look.

 

The Chamber’s new website offers visitors a fresh and vivid digital experience as they access information on the many learning programs, incentives and events we offer that benefit our local business community.

 

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer a new site that is easy to navigate and still provides our Members with the valuable information they’ve come to expect,” says Chamber President and CEO Greg Durocher.

 

With a click of a button on the home page or from the ‘events’ page, Members will be able to easily access and manage their own accounts using a simple username system. They will not only be able to update their profiles to add or delete employees but will also be able to pay bills online.

 

“This feature will be a huge benefit to our Members and streamline our operation so we can concentrate on what we do best: helping businesses grow and prosper,” says Durocher.

 

The site itself is much brighter and colourful and contains fewer links which in turn will make using it a far more engaging experience for visitors.

 

As well, a new mobile site is included which means much clearer access on all digital devices.

 

“We have no doubt users will find this feature a huge bonus,” says Durocher, noting how much communication is conducted on smartphones.  “It’s important for all businesses to adapt to the latest trends.”

REM Web Solutions Extends 10% Discount to Chamber Members on New Projects

The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce our latest Affinity Program, where our members can receive a benefit through the collective buying power. Recently through the graciousness of one of our members, the Cambridge Chamber had its website overhauled and revamped (www.cambridgechamber.com) and we couldn’t be happier with the results, nor could we have achieved it without the great support from REM Web Solutions (www.remwebsolutions.com).


"All I can say is WOW!"  Both to the results of a number of months of work from my staff and Rob Matlow's, but even more of a Wow for the fact that he was able to make this financially achievable.  REM Web Solutions works with hundreds of companies and organizations creating websites that are fully customer manageable. One of the absolute musts for our Chamber was to have it fully accessible to my staff, so that changes could be made on our schedule and that new information could be added at a moment’s notice, easily and exact. REM Web Solutions has an incredible back end product that makes it easy for anyone to use. It's flexible and so expandable.


REM Web Solutions Inc. was founded in 2001 and is a full service Web Professional Services Firm based in Waterloo Region.   REM found that many businesses were paying high costs to have their website maintained and had no control over their website content.  REM developed WebWiz@rd to give small to medium sized companies the ability maintain their own website content with only basic computer skills


REM’s employees have many years’ experience developing solutions for the web and understand what it takes to establish a successful online presence.  They worked with over 800 customers across North America. REM also has experience working with not-for-profit organizations and associations.


A finished website does not mean that REM’s relationship with their client is over.  Every member of REM’s team is 100% focused on building lasting relationships with their clients.  Only a phone call or e-mail away, REM offers the best technical support possible.


Other Affinity Programs Available through Your Membership with the Cambridge Chamber

The Chamber has a number of other Affinity Programs that bring a distinct buying power advantage to their Members, pricing that simply isn’t available to most businesses. Our Group Benefits program is probably our signature piece with over 300 member businesses on the program, and offers full coverage, including dental and extended health benefits at prices that simply aren’t available to the average business.

 

We have great program for Visa, MasterCard and debit card transactions through First Data, where the rates are at least half of what a business can normally get. Bulk buying helps us help our members to get affordable services, it is simply a must and our Merchant program with First Data has help businesses survive because the fees are so low. 

 

The Chamber of Commerce also offers a Group Retirement Program called Chamber Pension Plan (CPP),  photocopier program with Information Network Systems (INS) in Waterloo. Home phone and internet program through Worldline that simply can’t be beat. Discount with Dignity Memorial on funeral services as well as a host of other Chamber Perks offering our members and their employees discounts. .

 

Check out all the Chamber’s Affinity and Member to Member discount programs.


Our Affinity Programs are predominantly from LOCAL providers, Chamber Members helping Chamber Members, we’re so proud of them, they really make the benefit of being a Chamber Member one of the most valuable assets we have.
