Bringing Design, Development, Production and Marketing to the Table – Literally

Metronome3 (M3), a digital agency headquartered in the tech-centric district of NoHo, has been bringing marketing and creative solutions to clients’ since early 2011. Backboned by design and development personnel, the M3 Team is building strategic marketing campaigns for its dozens of active projects. Varying in vertical and size – the group has been laser-focused in the restaurant and hospitality industry since incubation.

Why restaurants and hospitality? It’s a chaotic and consistently failing vertical for many. “We found restaurants to be a great fit simply based on two understandings: 1) a lack of trained personnel and 2) a difficulty in adapting to the changing world of marketing and technology,” said Metronome3 Co-Founder, Max Kimble. After years of testing the marketplace and landing dozens of accounts, both in enterprise-level and stand alone establishments across the United States, M3’s new sub-venture will solely focus on the restaurant industry. Enter: Simmer Group.

Simmer Group will debut this week at two Los Angeles conferences: Restaurant High 2014 – Rock the Obstacles on May 9th and the UCLA Restaurant Conference on May 13th. With plans to scale across the United States throughout 2014, Simmer Group, a creative design, marketing and advertising agency, will lead businesses through the world of restaurant and hospitality marketing. For more information and about Simmer Group, visit http://www.simmergroup.com.

Simmer Group will also be partnered with service-industry focused human resource SaaS platform, SideSkills. Ryan McKenzie, CEO stated, “There is an exciting opportunity here – we really think Simmer Group is going to be an amazing partner. The ability to deliver outstanding results for their clients has really impressed us and there is no doubt they will continue to make waves throughout the restaurant scene.” With SideSkills and Simmer Group’s experience with the likes of powerhouse restaurant groups such as Lemonade, there is a unique opportunity to fulfill large, multi-unit restaurant clientele with top-of-line agency services across the board.

Metronome3, founded in 2011, is a digital agency specializing in creative design, social marketing, advertising and web design & development. Having worked with over 100+ businesses & brands, core-services have impacted Lemonade LA, AvroKo, Hospitality Holdings, Chef John DeLucie + Crown Group Hospitality, Sony Music Nashville, Elizabeth and James, Men’s Fitness Magazine, Bento Box Interactive, Sesame Workshop and the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation to name a few. M3 is a proud strategic partner of the CFDA. For information contact, Max Kimble at max(at)simmergroup(dot)com or call 646.494.3605.

N-VisionIT CIO Reid Ivens’ story of bootstrapping success endeared him to judges of Ottawa’s prestigious Forty Under 40 Award for entrepreneurial leaders.

When Reid Ivens found out he’d won the prestigious Forty Under 40 award, the entrepreneur reflected on the 15 years that have followed since co-founding N-VisionIT, one of the leading Ottawa web and mobile development firms. He remembered all the clients, small and Fortune 500 alike; all the investment properties he and his partner amassed, one by one, to 18 doors in 18 months; and all the hours spent architecting a recently launched business management software that will help business owners everywhere.

“One of the most important lessons I’ve learned about doing business over the last 15 years is to never give up, to persevere,” says Ivens. “And then someday, when you’re receiving the Forty Under 40 award, you can think, ‘Thank God I didn’t throw in the towel.’”

Ivens co-founded N-VisionIT with CEO Brent Mondoux, who was named a Forty Under 40 recipient in 2013. The award, co-hosted by the Ottawa Business Journal and the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce, recognizes the achievements of local business leaders.

“I’m very proud to be recognized alongside such an impressive group of business people,” says Ivens, whose bootstrapping story was selected from 250 applications. “I’ve put my heart and soul into building a business that helps others reach their goals, and it’s great to know those efforts are recognized by my peers and local business leaders.”

Under Ivens’ leadership alongside Mondoux, N-VisionIT has created hundreds of websites, mobile applications and social media marketing campaigns for the likes of Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. The firm was recently named Canada’s Best Android App Developer by Best Web Design Agencies.

Ivens says a big part of what has made N-VisionIT so successful over the last 15 years is the company’s very own web-based business management software. In fact, because the easy-to-use platform automates almost every business function, from payroll to sales reports, Ivens decided to bring the cloud-based BusinessManage.com to market so other businesses could enjoy saving time and money as well as an advantage over competitors.

“The timing of this award is particularly significant because of the recent launch of our new service offering, BusinessManage.com,” says Ivens. “This software helped get us to where we are today, and I look forward to helping other entrepreneurs use it to succeed and find more time to focus on the tasks they love that drew them into business in the first place.”

Ivens will receive his Forty Under 40 award along with 39 of his peers June 19 at a gala at the Hilton Lac-Leamy.
