The CourseVector Experience
Experience the Difference a CourseVector Design can make!
Your Vision is our Mission
A lot of our clients ask how we can afford to provide our services at such an inexpensive price. The answer to that question is very simple. We are in this for the long-haul, with a mission to stand behind our services and our customers. Even when that means taking a loss on paper in man-hours paid to ensure the customer’s expectations are met and their vision is realized. At CourseVector customer satisfaction is our main goal, not an afterthought; with more than 35 years of customer service satisfaction which exceeds a 99 percent retention rate, your satisfaction is our first priority when we accept your project.
So, you see we do not frontload our prices and then disappear. CourseVector has been in business in one form or another since 1989. We pride ourselves in providing web design, hosting, graphic design, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) marketing services at affordable prices.
CourseVector is a family business.
Not everyone that works with CourseVector is family by blood, but earns that status through hard work and a commitment to excellence. Our fantastic team is comprised of a professional artist, a journalist with 30 years of experience, a programmer that worked for the Federal Government, a Disney programmer and a copywriter. Most of our team are military Veterans or have worked with federal and local governments providing their unique services and are poised to pass on that experience to you and your project.
Mike Vandling, CourseVector’s senior partner, has tried retirement twice, the first time in 1980 when he sold his first successful business, where he employed more than 2200 people and the second time in 1991 when he sold his company, an Internet Service Provider for more than 6000 clients. He soon learned that “retirement” was not a way of life he could live with, so he took a security and programming contract with the Pennsylvania state government, which he still does in addition to what has become not only his hobby but a gratifying way to assist his son-in-law Gabe pursue his life’s dream.
Gabriel “Gabe” Mariani, CourseVector’s junior partner and former Air Force Information Technology (IT) specialist got his start programming for small clients while still in high school, and then broadened his programming knowledge considerably while designing multi-media training programs for the military. Prior to realizing his dream of serving in the US Air Force he worked for the Walt Disney Company, helped with development on the Disney Homepage, and US & international websites for Disney Parks and Resorts Online, before moving over to another national brand, Hershey’s. Gabe is now the Lead Programmer for CourseVector and says he truly enjoys providing programming solutions to our client’s programming challenges.
Jennifer Mariani, CourseVector’s Operations Manager, Copywriter, and SEO analyst got her start writing training materials for the military for 10 years, before branching out to writing training support manuals for Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police. Jennifer also wrote sales & marketing copy for online businesses while studying SEO. Jennifer is the hands-on project manager for many of CourseVector’s enterprises and still enjoys writing and editing blog spots for customers.
Our Commitment to Community
One of the ways we prove our desire to serve is by providing Website Design to communities and non-profits free of charge when they commit to a two-year hosting contract at $48 per year. We understand it can be difficult stretching already strained budgets to get the message out to the community, so we provide a free platform from which to reach out to that support base. It is our desire to give a hand to community outreach programs, such as churches, local fire fighters, youth athletics, and other worthy causes. This is an excellent opportunity to use our talents to help these organizations “connect.”
