How we help TFO 


The old TFO Canada website suffered from several critical issues that hindered its effectiveness:

  • Slow Loading Times and Performance Bottlenecks: The website’s performance was severely hampered by its underlying technology, resulting in slow loading times and a frustrating user experience.
  • Frequent Errors and Dysfunctional Pages: The website’s custom code architecture made it prone to errors and dysfunctional pages, disrupting user navigation and compromising the overall user experience.
  • Scalability and Content Management Limitations: The custom code structure made it difficult to scale the website and update content, limiting TFO Canada’s ability to adapt to changing needs.


To address these challenges, the Orthoplex team implemented a comprehensive website optimization plan:

  • Transition to a Flexible and Advanced Web Development Solution: We replaced the website’s custom code infrastructure with a more flexible and scalable technology stack, enabling seamless updates and content management.
  • Page-by-Page Revamp and Error Resolution: We carefully replaced error- prone pages with new, clean, and fully functional pages built using our modern technology stack.
  • Content Revamp and Optimization: We revamped the website content, ensuring it was fresh, relevant, and engaging for the target audience.
  • Implementation of Cutting-edge Plugins and Tools: We integrated advanced plugins and tools to enhance website performance, functionality, and security.


The revitalized TFO Canada website emerged as a modern, user-friendly, and high-performance digital platform, delivering the following tangible benefits
