EXCELOVATION CHANGE REQUEST RESPONSE
Our ongoing Marketing Program clients enjoy the guarantee of a certain number of hours each month dedicated to enhancing their online marketing presence and the assurance of rapid response if something happens to their site, whether it's hosted on our servers or not.
For businesses that want maintenance to their sites and are looking for a new provider to handle the maintenance, Excelovation is able to provide as-needed development and design maintenance at the following hourly rates.
Critical/Urgent (site is down or information must change immediately)
High (within 2 business days)
Normal (within 10 business days)
DESIGN / DEVELOPMENT WARRANTY
If we create an online marketing vehicle for you -- through custom code or through the use of third party software, we will warrant all design/development craftsmanship and compatibility for 90 days after the launch of the site or upload of changes. Because the technology used to view websites (browsers, plugins like Flash or Java) change so rapidly and are beyond the control of any development or design studio, we cannot guarantee that the application we created or implemented will work without further enhancement over time.
THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE
We often make use of third-party software because it offers desirable functionality at a fraction of the cost of custom development. When we create a plan for you, it will include the details on any third-party software we plan to include, along with the reasons for the selection. At the same time, we'll propose a maintenance plan for keeping the software up to date.
PCI COMPLIANCE FOR E-COMMERCE WEBSITES
PCI Compliance is a requirement for any website that accepts credit cards online in payment.
Compliance is mandated and defined by the PCI Security Standards Council and it publishes the standards to which all online vendors must adhere: the Data Security Standard (DSS), the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) and the Pin-Entry Device (PED) Requirements.
Any third-party software we use as a part of your online marketing vehicle will be PCI compliant when it launches. eCommerce clients must plan for at least annual upgrades in their online marketing budgets, as the standards can change as security risks become apparent to the governing body. When we propose an eCommerce platform for a client, we'll include a plan for regular maintenance to assure ongoing compliance with these critical standards.
Excelovation enjoys discovering and making use of high quality third-party software to provide the most sought-after functions in the most affordable way for our clients.
