Phyxter is a technology company based in Toronto, Ontario that aims to empower the daily lives of skilled labour and independent contractors through their proprietary mobile and web platform.  Co-founded in May of 2017 by Jake Gibson and Ben Fagan, Phyxter now connects over 100,000 independent skilled workers with almost 30,000 wholesale suppliers across North America.

Phyxter Pro and Phyxter Wholesaler

Phyxter asked us to provide them with a complete mobile and web solution for their users to search, discover, and order the parts they need with a few simple clicks. The result was Phyxter Pro and the Phyxter Wholesaler.

Phyxter Pro is an intuitive mobile application powered by a smart search algorithm that locates the closest available products from the highest rated suppliers at the best price. 

With a just one touch, a busy skilled worker can order parts with little effort while keeping track of its shipping status and purchase history. Phyxter Pro also comes with a built-in instant messenger for those who wishes to contact suppliers directly for sales inquiry or to negotiate a better price (suppliers can sell a product right in the chat) or send out a parts request to all nearby suppliers. On top of all that, app users are also rewarded with Phyxter Points that can be used to redeem great prizes.

On the other end is the Phyxter Wholesaler web portal created for merchants to easily manage their virtual storefronts. It is free to sign up and takes less than five minutes to start selling on Phyxter. Simply sign-in through any web browser to upload product information, process payments and sales order, answer customer inquiry, process returns and refunds, or promote yourself towards thousands of potential new customers around your proximity.

Consumer Products

Unibroue is a brewery in Chambly, Quebec, Canada that was started by Serge Racine and Quebec native Andre Dion in 1993. The company was purchased by Sleeman Breweries Ltd. In 2004, which was itself taken over by Sapporo in 2006. Unibroue is the first of three microbrewing companies in the greater Montreal area, both chronologically and in terms of sales benefits.

Unibroue Passport: Quest to the End of the World

Unibroue reached out to us to come up with a social media app that would help them strengthen the relationship with their loyal fans. Taking inspiration from their award-winning flagship beer, La Fin du Monde, which is French for “The End of the World”, our team created a “Quest to the end of the World” virtual reality game within the Unibroue Passport mobile application to give its users a chance to win great prizes, including an all-expenses-paid trip to the Unibroue brewery in Quebec, Canada.

In addition to the three more games that will be progressively released to promote other flavours of Unibroue beer, we have also implemented several other features to enhance a user’s purchasing experience:

  • Unibroue Finder: A tracking feature that allows users to find where their favourite Unibroue beers are being sold.
  • Unibroue News Alert: A notification feature that informs users on the latest Unibroue news and sales promotions.
  • Unibroue Library: Quick access to all Unibroue product information including flavour, brewing process, ingredients, and food pairing.

In cooperation with Pinnguaq Association, a non-profit organization that promotes technological advancement with rural and remote communities, and Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre, an independent, non-profit community research institute founded by Government of Nunavut, Many Hats was tasked with creating an all-in-one mobile application for new members of the health care work force arriving in Nunavut.

The Health NU mobile application is an intuitive, easy-to-use, easy-to-read library that is specifically designed to be accessed quickly in times of need. It contains information about working and communicating in a multilingual environment, the organization of the health system, the Inuit historical context of different regions, important aspects of health care practice, and values and expectations in the health care setting. It also includes useful community-specific information including maps, phone numbers, information pages, weather information, ways to get involved in the community, and things to pack. As of today, Health NU has become a must-have mobile application for any health care professionals, social workers, or anyone who is looking to visit the Northwest.

Review Summary

We have an ongoing collaboration with Many Hats who are helping us develop autosmoke and testing infrastructure as well as console porting for our multi-platform video game.

Mike Despault has been a pleasure to work with, he is inquisitive, insightful, seeks to understand our challenges, and leverages his experience to craft systems that will be key for the longevity of our studio and the titles we ship. Mike and Many Hats as a whole work with transparency as a value, form negotiations to execution, we have always been clear on costs and time. As a small studio, this has given us the flexibility we need for our budget. I'm grateful for this partnership and hope to continue to work with Many Hats for many years to come.
