In 1994, Catherine Pagliaro founded C.N. Wylie Group Inc. and Strategic Profits Inc. (SPI) to develop a full line of
Internet business solutions for all levels of business, government and educational institutions, not-for-profit and
charitable organizations. Educational seminars were developed in 1995 to teach businesses, not-for-profit and charitable
organizations the necessary strategies for success on the Web. In August, 1997 SPI tested their first secure online web
transactions and began the rollout their full service e-commerce solutions offering in conjunction with their business
relationship with Royal Bank of Canada. SPI was one of the first to the market in Canada with such services.
In June of 1998 SPI partnered with Industry Canada, Royal Bank of Canada, GE Capital IT Solutions, to launch the
e-commerce pilot, Communitystorefronts.com, "Canada's premier marketplace for shopping and fundraising securely on-line".
SPI was approached to supply the proven business model, implementation of the e-commerce tools, and training for over 200
SMEs (small to mid-sized businesses) not-for-profit and registered charitable organizations from Newfoundland to BC. The
pilot was highly successful. May 1, 1999 communitystorefronts.com became a fully commercialized portal offering e-commerce
solutions and is certified with all major banks in Canada and the US for online credit card payments. Idebit is now
available for merchants in Canada.
In 2000 Strategic Profits Inc. rolled out the Guysborough county pilot based on the Communitystorefronts.com business
model. This provided the Atlantic Provinces with a successful template for creating successful online businesses.
In August of 2002, SPI built Payment gateway software for both wireless and Internet cash and credit card payments. The
addition of the wireless capability provides SPI with a complete turnkey infrastructure to roll out its proven business
model internationally and specifically in developing nations.
The core brand technologies developed by Strategic Profits Inc. were incorporated into PayPaq Solutions Inc.,
