Many clients contact us when their current provider has either disappointed in service or disappeared. We are then asked to assess a website. We do this by getting back-end access and looking at the code to see how it has been set up and if we have the necessary skillset to work with that coding. There are two outcomes. We are either able to take over the maintenance/updates of the site or we recommend that the website be redone.
This auditing process time will vary, depending on the complexity of the site, amount of research required and possible communication with third parties.
