Surprises are great. Except when they interfere with business procedures. The last thing you want to get surprised by is the condition of your website. Here, they quickly lead from a mere annoyance to unpleasant consequences like busted time schedules, exceeded budgets, and messed up business relationships.

Do you know the technical condition of your TYPO3 website? If not, get an objective opinion through a TYPO3 Project Review. These reviews guide TYPO3 website owners and builders in making well-informed decisions. Take the guesswork out of making important decisions concerning your TYPO3 web project by getting a second opinion from an expert, outside perspective.

Why it’s important to maintain your website

Websites are at the heart of generating business value and they represent a considerable investment. Whatever software a site is built with, it will require maintenance and regular updates. Keeping a website in good working condition is never a “one and done” task.

Neglecting basic website maintenance can have unpleasant consequences like:

  • Security issues

  • Increased page loading time

  • Declining search engine rankings

These are some of the many reasons to stay on top of website maintenance. The pace of change with web technologies is so fast that if you don’t give a website regular attention it could soon be falling behind. Assessing the status quo at regular intervals will support you in making good decisions about what to improve or remove in your website or application.

TYPO3 Project Review: Analysis, evaluation and documentation

TYPO3 Project Reviews are a reliable resource when dealing with technical decisions. The review process provides stakeholders in web projects–both TYPO3 service providers and TYPO3 website owners–the chance to get an objective, expert opinion about the state of their web application.

TYPO3 Project Reviews can give you answers to questions like:

  • When do you need a relaunch to a new TYPO3 website? When is an update sufficient?

  • How complex will the process be to make this happen?

  • Is the site performing at its best? If not, what’s preventing it from doing so?

TYPO3 Project Reviews for web agencies

Building, maintaining and upgrading TYPO3 websites involves technical complexity and an independent, expert review can be beneficial for TYPO3 web agencies in many ways.

TYPO3 Project Reviews provide answers to questions like...

  1. How complex is the update or relaunch of a project going to be?

  2. How can standards and consistency be promoted?

  3. What will the workload for migrating or upgrading a new (unknown) project be? This includes analyzing if upgrading is possible or not.

  4. Is the website performing at its best or does it merely “look right”?

  5. Are there technical problems preventing the website from working properly?

The consequences of misjudgement can be severe. They can rip your reputation apart and cost you time and money. TYPO3 Project Reviews help you make informed decisions.
