A website maintenance plan is an excellent way of keeping your website up to date and in perfect shape, while keeping your costs to a minimum. It is also a great way of ensuring you will be able to get help when you need it. A website is a dynamic piece of software running on a server. Aside from general updating, your site also requires regular scheduled maintenance to ensure your website’s availability and performance. Organisations need to save money where they can in order to improve services for members or to invest for growth. Unfortunately, what seems like a cost-saving choice for many organizations turns out to be a costly error.
The problem is often expressed like this: “Once our website is built…” or “As soon as we have our site developed, then…”. That reveals a critical misunderstanding about web development: Websites aren’t static, one-time developments. They are organic; they evolve; they grow and change with the needs of the organization. A website is developed and built, but the process doesn’t stop there. Unfortunately, because of the misunderstanding about the lifecycle of a website, organizations think they save money by having a site developed and then left alone. However, thas decision actually costs more money in many cases.
Our maintenance plans are cost effective and can be tailored to your specific needs.
