Great West Newspapers

About This Project

We are proud to have been part of the team that won 1st Place Best Community Website and 1st Place Best Layout and Design (Desktop & Mobile) in 2015!


Great West Newspapers serves top-ranked community newspapers in the economic heart of Alberta. Tamberra has worked on many projects for Great West including the following:


  • Responsive website redesign.
  • Setting up Newscycle Digital in a way that allows project managers and editors to have more control making edits on the sites, such as changing navigation and editing page content.
  • A recurring events implementation.
  • A photo contest module.
  • A blogs section.
  • Search Engine Optimization.
  • Created a single global codebase for 25 sites to run off of for minimal development time when making changes.




What was the problem you needed to solve?

I needed a development team that could produce 24 news websites that utilize mobile friendly content delivery and allowed global changes to the site template.

Why did you choose the business you did?

I had a great experience supporting our previous websites with the team from Tamberra.

How did they solve your problem?

Tamberra was able to develop a website template that had all of the features we required and used global files to help us standardize our sites across the company.

What did you particularly like about their approach or delivery?

I worked closely with Tamberra on the design and layout of our custom websites. Working with their team we were able to develop a clean design and well-organized website which has won several national and international awards.

How would you summarise the experience as a whole?

I cannot say enough about how great it has been to work with Tamberra. I have worked with many different development teams on multiple projects and nothing has compared to the great experience I have had with Tamberra. Tamberra’s leadership is engaged with the industry and provides more than just coding skills. They are full of ideas and best practices that have been a direct benefit to my project and my company.

Would you recommend the business to others? If so, who?

I would recommend Tamberra for any digital project you have. It’s not about billing hours; it’s about the success of the project that is most important to them. Businesses looking to upgrade their website or entrepreneurs planning on launching the next big tech trend would both find the expertise they need at Tamberra to make their project a success.
