Business Challenges That We Help Solve

Our managed services offering is designed to ensure that you don’t have to worry about the technical aspects or overall health of your Sitecore solutions. We can even help you further enhance your digital strategy and marketing automation programs. It all depends on where your greatest needs lie. Here are some of the business challenges that we help our clients solve on a daily basis:

  • Lack of in-house marketing or technical expertise, or IT Support
  • Inability to reliably manage production environments, code repositories, and deployments, resulting in unplanned outages
  • Long-term maintenance, support, enhancements, and cloud hosting for Sitecore websites that are soon-to-be or have just launched
  • “Rescues” of poorly implemented Sitecore solutions that do not align with long-term digital or organizational goals, or technical best-practices
  • Round-the-clock availability of resources to work on high-priority issues like the website or business-critical services being unavailable
  • Lack of knowledge around the implemented solution and customizations in Sitecore
  • Poor operational efficiency and un-optimized workflows within marketing and digital/web teams

Services

Marketing automation & Analytics

Our team of analytics experts and digital strategists can provide insight into how your websites are performing and engaging your audiences, and identify areas for optimization to meet your digital goals. They perform analytics platform setups and implementations, monthly reporting on trends, issues, and areas for improvement, and assist with digital enablement and marketing automation programs.

Sitecore Cloud Hosting

As a leading Sitecore partner, we configure, deploy, host and monitor our clients' websites on Microsoft Azure - a flexible cloud-based platform that is an ideal hosting solution for organizations utilizing Sitecore or other web applications. Our solutions architects will individually tailor specifications to meet your operational demands and maximize stability and performance.

Solution Development & Consulting

In supporting your digital efforts, we cover everything from bug fixes and light enhancements, to technical consulting around the optimal configuration and architecture for your digital properties and their environments. We also perform Sitecore upgrades and the associated regression testing to ensure a seamless transition to newer versions of the platform.

DevOps

DevOps consultation brings development best practices to your production, stage, and development environments. We provide application maintenance, deployment support and consulting, performance reporting and tuning, source code management, continuous integration server configuration, and QA automation services. All of this is delivered per the 24/7 SLAs that we have in place to ensure optimal performance and uptime.

Sitecore Helpdesk & Training

Sitecore is an enterprise-level solution that can be customized in infinite ways to meet your business needs. Our team of full-stack, Sitecore-certified experts can provide online or onsite training to get you up to speed on your new digital solution. We’re also on hand to answer questions and other concerns that come up on a daily basis regarding authoring, managing content, and making updates within Sitecore.

Sitecore Implementation Audits

Implementing a Sitecore solution requires more than just .NET expertise. All too often we run into solutions that have been poorly implemented and lack an understanding of Sitecore best practices. As a leading Sitecore platinum partner, we have completed hundreds of implementations on the platform over a span of 11 years, and we bring this experience to bear on each project that we take on. If you have a Sitecore solution that is under-performing, our in-depth Sitecore CMS audit is the right first step for stabilizing your critical web presence.
