It was November 2021. NovAtel wanted to thank its employees with a personal touch for yet another year of hard work in these difficult COVID-19 times.


Get the gifts delivered to employees in time for Christmas. All other vendors offered long timelines which would not allow for on-time gift delivery. In addition, anything that was proposed included a hefty budget that the client would rather give to its employees.


Simply Elegant, a systems-driven and process-oriented company, came up with a way to face the challenge and accomplish the task. We devised a three-stage approach:

  • Survey 300+ employees to offer gift options and collect location data;
  • Create delivery routes based on location data;
  • Deliver the gifts to 300+ NovAtel employees on time.

Our team estimated that the entire process would take ten days. It would allow NovAtel l to send gifts to its employees in time for Christmas.

Health and safety of both teams was a priority for us. We ensured that each step of the way was conducted following the latest health and safety guidelines from the Government of Alberta.


  • Speed and efficiency: We got the team together and came up with a plan within a day.
  • Process elegance and transparency: the process was simple and elegant. We were open about each stage of the process with the client from step one.
  • Health and safety first: We followed all the safety measures to protect our employees and NovAtel employees.
  • Our technology stack allowed us to execute quickly and deliver Christmas gifts on time and with minimal client involvement.
  • On time and on budget: Above all, it allowed NovAtel to thank their employees for their hard work. We did it on time and within a set budget.
