Local Website Awarded Site of the Year 1999

Site of the Year 1999 - Ritchies Secretarial Service

Caledon East, ON - Docu-Type Administrative Services, a Caledon East off-site office assistance company that specializes in word processing, desktop publishing and website development, has been honoured with a website achievement award for its appealing and informative website. The 1999 Site of the Year award was bestowed upon Docu-Type for their design and maintenance of their company website.

"As we are a home-based virtual assistance company, we don't have a store or fancy building to show off", said Janice Byer, founder of Docu-Type. "Our website ( is our storefront and it is nice to be recognized for all the effort that went into designing and maintaining it ... especially from our peers."

Ritchie Secretarial Service ( located in Aurora, Colorado, visits approximately 50 websites per week, examining their design, appearance, navigation and more. "Some sites are very good, but others leave something to be desired", says Kathy Ritchie. "We turn down many sites (approximately 50 %) that don't meet our criteria and restrictions."

"Docu-Type's site met all of our specifications plus more. Not only is it well laid out, easy to navigate and full of helpful articles and links, it has personality. The site includes a bio of Ms. Byer and you can definitely see her personality in all the pages. When you read through their site, it is like she is actually speaking to you."

Websites are generally judged for their assistance and information that they provide their visitors. For anyone that has every been surfing on the Internet, they know how much more comfortable they are dealing with companies that provide information about themselves. Those that do not have some sort of personal touch find themselves having less interaction with the visitors that come to their site.
