Why Boss for site owners.Our monthly licence fee allows us to offer essential support services required for a successful online venture. This includes (but is certainly not limited to) a very personal hosting service for the website that goes far beyond what traditional hosting providers can offer.
Some of the solutions our service offers
The corresponding solutions to typical hosting and website maintenance problems explains why Boss is such a good choice for you and for your clients:
- Highly active ongoing development.
Avoids problem of: Static software installations that grow old and out of date.
- Ongoing increase in site value.
Avoids problem of: Losses made from rebuilding sites from scratch. Because Boss is undergoing constant development to keep advanced of current web trends and the site design can be constantly refreshed very easily, you won't need to reinvest in new technology in another 5 years. This ultimately adds value to the website.
- Our deployments are consistent, straight forward & refined and
subsequently we can answer the phone
Avoids problem of: Support tickets and hosting firm frustrations
- Boss does daily incremental backups (30 days)
Avoids problem of: Critical errors and data deletion
- Each Boss site is constantly monitored by our developers and in the case of performance or application issues it emails our developers with the details automatically.
Avoids problem of: Missing pages, errors being untracked and unmeasured. Boss sites are generally fixed before you even realise you had an issue and with 10 years of testing errors are rare.
- Boss is under constant development. Sites are kept up-to-date on the latest
versions. Support for new web trends such as Twitter, YouTube, and Google
maps are automatically available
Avoids problem of: Sites grow old both from a technology and implementation perspective and legacy code issues creep in
- The Boss licence includes unlimited user logins; and as the CMS is browser based it can be accessed from any location
Avoids problem of: Editing software only living on one computer (Dreamweaver/Contribute model)
- Boss sites are dynamic, meaning you see your changes instantaneously
Avoids problem of: Cumbersome editing (see article below)
- We ring your clients each month, prompting and referring repeat design business back to the graphic designer.
Avoids problem of: Losing touch with clients
- Boss is super extendible so adding new modules and functionality is easy
Avoids problem of: Dreading having to add new functionality to a client's site
- It's common for sites launched on open source solutions to not have
factored in the ongoing security updates and patches that need to be
applied to the website. Each time security holes are found in such
products they will then find their sites routinely hacked. Boss keeps
all its sites upgraded and maintained to avoid such complications.
Avoids problem of: Security issues around unmaintained code
- Hosting provisioning, finding providers, checking data limits are all taken care of with the Verb Approved Providers (VAP's) and expertise.
Avoids problem of: Spending hours and loosing money sorting these issues
- Up time is Boss's responsibility (99.9% for last 12 months)
Avoids problem of: Stress of sites going down
"The real problem for Dreamweaver and for its users is that the nature of the web is changing dramatically. Dynamically-generated web applications offer much more – in-built commenting, voting, RSS feeds, etc - than the best sites built on static HTML can ever hope to provide."
"The good news of course is that this is actually a huge opportunity – think Klondike gold-rush - for the web designer who can adapt. But how? After all your average designer is built along radically different lines to your average developer."
"I really can’t recommend this strongly enough. If you are a Dreamweaver user don’t bother upgrading to the latest version or exploring Adobe’s feeble attempts to graft end user content contribution onto Dreamweaver. Instead save your money and invest your time in getting to grips with the real future of web design: server-based content management systems."
