Web specific conditions
Browser Support for new web builds:
Unless explicitly stated in the quote we will test web-based solutions on the following most current devices and browser versions:
• PC: Internet Explorer & Chrome
• Mac: Safari
Mobile-responsive sites will be tested in portrait and landscape at specific break points (not transitions between them) on:
• iPad, iPhone using Safari only
• 1x Android phone and 1 x Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S) using Chrome only
Monitors with a display of up to 1920x1080 will be supported.
Other platforms such as Firefox and Android can be quoted for upon request.
The internet environment changes rapidly and continuously. As a result it is impossible to fully future-proof new website developments. At the current rate of change we expect a website life-span to realistically be on average 4 years.
This will vary depending on:
- The style of design specified, for example:
‘Trendy’ and up-to-the-minute web design can date quickly
Classic and simple design can have a longer shelf-life
- The rate of change in your particular industry, for example:
Technologies typically change faster than industrial products/services and may need to be updated more frequently to remain competitive and appropriate to the market place.
- The software used for your site, for example:
- Ecommerce software - Woocommerce, Magento, ZenCart etc…
- Content management systems - Dot Net Nuke, CMSMS, Drupal, Joomla etc...
- Blog software - WordPress, Expression Engine etc...
- Modules and plug-ins
We endeavour to ensure that the life span of a website is as long as possible in consideration of cost-effectiveness and value for money.
A website is a live environment and should be updated on a regular basis to reflect your business activities and services. You should therefore expect to invest in your website on an ongoing basis.
Please note that once final approval and payment are received, any further changes or updates become billable on an hourly basis.
We recommend that an annual maintenance budget is allocated for your website. As a rule of thumb, we suggest 10% of the original build price per year to maintain your site. Hence if your site cost £20,000 to build then you might expect to invest on average a further £2,000 per year.*
This will go towards covering:
- Software licence updates necessary to ensure browser compatibility, bug fixes and security patches
- Module and plug-in updates
- Merchant service provider interface updates
(e.g. SagePay issue updates for security and development purposes).
- Changes to Google Analytics and other Google products used to track and monitor your website
- Changes to social media services set up and integration
- Optional design updates to keep your site looking fresh and contemporary

This rule does not apply to websites whose I.T. are managed internally that do not require this kind of support.
