'Our e-cards work great with today’s mobile devices and desktop browsers. We’ve completely moved away from Flash-only or HTML5-only e-cards. With the latest release of our ecard technologies, we now cover both in one tight solution.'
Toronto, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) July 15, 2014
Progressive Media Group, a leading provider of corporate holiday e-cards, has announced the latest innovation in their business holiday e-cards technology ahead of the upcoming holiday season. Since 2003, the company has been helping businesses of all sizes throughout North America and abroad prepare and deliver their seasonal greetings to customers. The company’s premium, eco-friendly, and customizable e-cards are viewable on mobile devices and desktops computers.
“Our e-cards work great with today’s mobile devices and desktop browsers,” says company founder Derek De Giovanni, “We’ve completely moved away from Flash-only or HTML5-only e-cards. With the latest release of our e-card technologies, we now cover both in one tight solution.” Aside from their very high device and browser compatibility rates, De Giovanni adds, “Customers praise our e-cards because they know that regardless of whether they are being viewed on new or old browsers, there is an extremely high level of visual consistency that was harder to obtain with the two-technology-solution of the past.”
For more than 10 years, Progressive Media Group has witnessed the growing trend that the number of businesses using e-cards is growing each year. Some customers indicate they have abandoned printed greetings altogether, citing reasons such as cost-effectiveness, green initiatives, better marketing funnel, more interesting designs with animation or music, and the fact that sending e-cards is a huge time-saver.
“Through our sales data over the years, we’ve seen upward growth every year. In 2013 alone, the number of companies requesting information from us more than double when compared to 2012,” notes De Giovanni. He chuckles at the fact that in 2013, the company moved to a new location with more office space to accommodate future growth, but didn’t imagine they’d be pushing its limits so soon.
Traditionally, Progressive Media offers early-bird pricing to customers who order their corporate holiday e-cards early in the season – mid- to late-October. The company’s early-bird pricing gives substantial discounts to businesses and also offers those who do send printed greetings an opportunity to try e-cards with less financial commitment and risk.
"Early-bird pricing has been a big part of our service over the years. Aside from encouraging our customers to complete their holiday greetings early, we’ve seen it help so many companies that aren’t sure about sending e-cards get over the hurdle of going digital with their greetings," De Giovanni says. "Plus, it's just a great deal for our customers."
Founded in early 2003 and based in Markham (just outside of Toronto), Ontario, Canada, Progressive Media Group began as a small business specializing web design and multimedia. Now, the company’s focus is exclusively on business e-cards for its customers, keeping up with technology changes and seeking out new, partnerships.
