Our Work

Thank you for checking in on our work. Here's a sample of some of the projects we've worked on recently and what our role has been.

Skylon Tower -  Restaurant Booking System

We've worked with the world-famous Skyon Tower for over 20 years, most recently updating their in-house booking and reservation system which manages their Revolving Dining Room and Summit Suite Buffet restaurnts. Our custom booking system was written in Ruby on Rails and features a customized workflow, integration with customer bookings from their website and more.

Maid of the Mist Mist -  Point of Sale Ticketing System

After finding no market alternatives that match their high demands for traffic flow and speed of service, the legendary Maid Of The Mist boat tour of Niagara Falls chose JMR / Upper Rapids to build a customized ticketing Point of Sale. Our system, built upon Node.js, allows for fast, high volume customer flow at one of the area's busiest attractions. Our solution integrates with Shopify e-commerce for online ticket sales.

Canadian Association of Research Ethics Boards  - www.careb-accer.org

For CAREB-ACCER our website, based on Drupal, allows for member logins to access organizationa assets and participate in forums with other members across the country. Our e-commerce solution allows CAREB to sell tickets for their annual conferences and maintain membership renewals.

Pathstone Mental Health - www.pathstonementalhealth.ca

For our second collaboration with Pathsone Mental Health we overhauled their entire web presence. We spent significant time with their team and stateholders to reorganize and reprioritize the content from their previous website to better expose their suite of services, workshops and other offerings to the public.

Nightmares Fear Factory - www.nightmaresfearfactory.com

We worked closely with Nightmares' in-house design team to capitalize on the viral success of their hilarious daily Fear Pics and build an ongoing and robust archive. Social sharing and Facebook page integration were key goals, as was a mobile website specifically tailored to the behavior of their mobile users. 

iPoly - www.ipoly.com

Producing sustainable, innovative plastics designed to boost customer profitability and end user performance, iPoly needed a flexible website that their in-house team could manage to promote thier fast-growing line of products. Built with Drupal 8, iPoly is a great example of how Upper Rapids helps industrial clients communicate their often highly technical suite of offerings in a bright, friendly way.

Niagara Helicopters - www.niagarahelicopters.com/

Niagara Helicopters is a great example of how we can help clarify and focus a long existing web-property. After many years on the web the premiere Niagara attraction had expanded their offerings, branding, and visition far beyond their existing presence. Upper Rapids worked closely with the Niagara Helicopters team to best share their incredible experience in a clean, mobile-friendly, and easily maintainable way.

Niagara Association of REALTORS - www.niagararealtor.ca/

The Niagara Association of REALTORS had an ambitious plan, not only to re-design a long stale web-presence for the mobile-friendly future but to provide a real functional resource for Niagara home buyers and sellers. Niagararealtor.ca fully integrates with the Association's back-end database to import information on agents, brokerages, and listings automatically into the website as they're created by thousands of agents across the region.

Robert Land Academy - www.robertlandacademy.com

Robert Land, a military school for boys in Wellandport, ON, caters to a worldwide audience. They not only required specific permission levels for various faculty members but the site required full translation into Mandarin to cater to their growing Chinese audience.
