Project Overview

Lifelong Literacy had various issues with their previous web development agency and so was seeking a new provider.

The main issues with the previous web development agency were:

  • Time zone differences leading to significant delays in resolving technical issues.
  • Lack of attention to detail in the roll-out of new features and updates.
  • Persistent bugs and major issues in new and minor updates, some of which prevented customers from completing purchases – a critical problem.

They needed a service that could not only integrate new features seamlessly and ensure a bug-free website but also offer prompt support during Australian working hours.

Stone Digital emerged as the solution to these needs. As part of our service offering, we included the following guarantees to help put our client’s mind at ease:

  • A promise to respond to all requests within one business day.
  • A guarantee of prompt action within a few hours for urgent issues.
  • Assurance that all updates we implement will be free of bugs.
  • A commitment to ensuring that our updates and deployments will never hinder customers from completing their purchases on the website.

The Outcome

The client was exceptionally pleased with our services, evidenced by their five-star reviews across two platforms. 

Our commitment to swift issue resolution, maintaining a bug-free website, and seamlessly integrating new features ensured smooth operation and revenue flow. Our efforts allowed the business owner to concentrate more on business growth, with less concern about website glitches or testing.

“What a great experience developing our new website with Brett and the team at Stone Digital. They took the time to understand what I wanted, were responsive throughout the whole process from design to launch, and have continued to be helpful as we learn to navigate our way around the new site. Highly recommended.”
