Do I Need a SLA, Service Level Agreement for my Website or Software?

3 of 7 – Do I Need a SLA, Service Level Agreement for my Website or Software?

SLAs (Service Level Agreements) are recommended to ensure we minimise on-going issues and where possible address in advance – or in worst case scenarios, resolve quickly.

We know about problematic functionality as we see them frequently in warnings from our day-to-day research flags; for example; WordPress systems should constantly be upgraded to the latest versions as they come with security flaws; due to the number of people using WordPress – this system is a popular hacking target.

The complexity of a website will also add to maintenance and performance requirements. A simple brochure-ware site without a database or complex functionality requires very little long-term support. On the other end of the scale, large bespoke or unique software / commerce services like transactional, booking or buying functionality needs up to 24 hours of full-time monitoring and is built with these resources in-mind.

Small on-going SLAs are recommended for all clients, which can be turned down to monitor and perform obvious technology updates on a monthly basis. Or in times of outlier issues popping up, will rapidly deploy team members to address any irregular functionality.

Remember, emergency fixes are requested for many projects that do not have an ongoing service agreement. This will add additional time, costs and frustration where leads or conversions are lost to get your digital ecosystem back into pristine working order.

Sometimes you meet people who just ‘get’ what your up to and are on your wave length, Michael, Alan, Nick and the rest of the AndMine team were these kind of people. He agreed on the spot to provide us with all the web and development support we would need. After our website design, the AndMine team worked crazy hard to build it and have continued to provide ongoing support and advice as the competition continues to evolve. We seriously can’t thank them enough for their help this year, we truly look forward to working with them in the future. - Positive Posters

&Mine Laboratory

&Mine team is a melting pot of technology and creative minds. Each year, we slice a few percent of our bandwidth to develop our own commercial projects. For example, we have developed a prototype Posture Detector with the help of Melbourne University's Engineering Department that will send signals to your smartphone and vibrate if your posture is poor. We are also improving our suite of cloud based software applications like Meet&Mine, our Networking Software. During its first year gathering data, it referred over half a million dollars of real business for a small Melbourne network group. If you’d like to know more about our laboratory projects and how you can get involved in capital raising, marketing or support, simply contact us.
