Direct Leap was contracted by the Federal New Democratic Party to develop an automated telephone messaging application, our team of ten delivering in 4 months what the other companies in this space each spent literally millions of dollars developing. Direct Leap's owned and operated system brings a messaging campaign from concept to delivery faster than any alternative in the country.
In Spring 2004, the Automated Telemessaging System placed over 20,000 phone calls per hour with messages from Jack Layton, Stephen Page from the Bare Naked Ladies, Howard Hampton, Ed Broadbent, Monia Mazigh (wife of Maher Arar), and many local personalities. The system was used to capture sign locations with interactive prompts and was used extensively in Jack Layton's Leader's Tour to notify volunteers of local events across the country, as well as for critical Election Day get-out-the-vote campaigns.
Direct Leap worked with Bitcasters to develop NovemberCalling.com, an innovative viral-marketing Get Out The Vote system for the 2004 Presidential Election in the United States. Kerry supporters can pledge to call their friends on Election Day, and sign up for personal reminders via Email or sent to their cellphone via SMS.

Direct Leap Technologies worked with Certica on many projects, including completing a sophisticated Web-to-Print application for one of Canada's largest printing companies.

After a successful rapid development project, our work was pivotal in the large printing client to land a $100 million per year textbook printing contract from one of the world's largest publishers based in New York.
Direct Leap developed a series of product proposals for Consultronics, a leading multinational vendor of telecommunications test equipment with a portfolio of dozens of test set products and customers including the largest carriers worldwide.
