A Little About Us
20+ years experience
For over 20 years, Emmatt Digital Solutions has provided support to businesses globally — including government healthcare agencies, manufacturers, small businesses, and not-for-profits — to modernize and expand their digital presence, with everything from document scanning to web development to our digital signage communication system, BallyhooTV.
Delivering solutions and results that meet and exceed our clients’ expectations is our company’s driving purpose; it’s the promise that we live up to each day as we deliver the best website design and development services that Peterborough has to offer.
We do this by bringing our specialized team members together to address the vast range of competencies required in today’s web development environment. These skills include project management, marketing and branding, database design, graphic design, content development, online fundraising tools, programming, implementation, hosting and maintenance services.
Emmatt is proud to give back to the community who has supported us over two decades. We support Peterborough charities including the BEL Rotary Club’s golf tournament, Shared Dreams for Independent Living, Soroptimist Peterborough, the YWCA Women’s Shelter, and have provided the Peterborough Humane Society with a free website for their “Our Pet Project” fundraising initiative.
