We received a call from a marketing company telling us about a clients website that had taken a year and a half to complete and cost the client a lot of money although never completed. In addition, this site had been the subject to repeated hacking attacks.
We evaluated the site and recommended that it needed to be redesigned and rebuilt on a stable theme. We gave them a price for the job and divided it into two payments; a deposit of 50% and a final payment due before launch. Given their previous experience they were very gun shy about working with another developer.
We suggested a managed WPEngine, a WordPress managed hosting company, which completely stopped the hacking attacks. To their delight and amazement, we were able to complete the project in about 6-8 weeks and it turned out very well. We had one of our colleagues retrieve the 5,000 telecom items that were previously entered into he wrong type of platform and change it to an integrated e-commerce program set up as a catalog. Lord’s was very satisfied with the results.
