Mac a Montreal has launched a new section on its website, Profiles, designed to outline some of it’s biggest success story and migrations from PC to Apple based solutions.

The first story is that of Ogilvy Salon and Spa – Montreal’s Finest Urban Spa and Salon. In a single day, Mac a Montreal completely upgraded Ogilvy Spa with an Apple solution and helped them get rid of all their existing Windows PCs.

Ogilvy Coiffure & Spa was created in 1981 to provide premium beauty, therapeutic and holistic body treatments to the Montreal community. O Spa provides a relaxing sanctuary from the frenzy of a fast-paced urban life.

In synthesizing the ideals of beauty, wellness, and relaxation O Spa provides its customers with the highest level of satisfaction. As each client is unique, so is their approach to treatment. O Spa’s professional staff uses high quality products and develops unique and personalized programs that cater to promoting the health of body and mind of their clients.

Keeping any business afloat is a challenge – and for Tony Sawaya, it’s a daily act. As a hairstylist himself, he spends a lot of time researching all that’s new and bleeding edge in his industry in order to meet and exceed his clients’ demanding needs. As owner of Ogilvy Spa, one of Montreal’s Finest Urban Spa and Salons, he also needs to stay in constant contact with his work at all times. Apple products provide him with the right tools, and Mac Montreal provides him with the know-how to make the best use of all this technology.

“For my business, my iMacs, iPhone and iPad are a must.” Sawaya says. “With these devices, I can run the entire company. I’ve literally got my office with me at all times.” From the car, or home, or when away on a trip, Sawaya keeps connected with O Spa. “And when I’m not on Wi-Fi, my iPhone has a 3G connection,” he says. “I just grab my iPad and I’m already connected.”

Sawaya isn’t alone in relying on iPad and iPhone at this thriving salon. His management team consider these devices and Mac Montreal so indispensable that they’ve outfitted their entire salon completely with Apple products. “We’ve been surprised how clients have responded when offered iPads to use the internet while they get pampered,”; says Sawaya. “People feel relaxed with them and time just passes.” Ogilvy Salon & Spa has switched to an Apple based solution entirely setup and configured by Mac Montreal. They have not looked back since.

“In our industry of beauty and synergy, only Apple solutions can provide a seamless and relaxing experience that is complementary to what we offer” Sawaya says. “It just doesn’t make any sense to have crashing computers and all that negative energy in a place like this. And it’s exactly what we had previously with our Windows PCs.” Mac Montreal fixed this problem promptly. Outfitted with cross-platform engineers, Mac Montreal knows precisely what it takes to make the PC to Mac migration a seamless and painless one.

“We don’t have to worry about this stuff anymore” Sawaya says, making reference to the Apple equipment running at his salon. “Everything just works now. I got so sick of all the problems we were having with our Windows based PCs. Everyday, it was something else” Sawaya recalls. “A total waste of money and a big cause of stress. I wanted no more of it.”

“We’re a small company that’s growing, and we have to be careful where we invest our resources,” says Sawaya. “We’re investing in Mac Montreal because we’ve found that they understand technology really well in general and have access to a vast amount resources that makes anything we want to achieve possible with ease. All of a sudden we’ve tapped into this potential and we continue to become a better company everyday.”
