We have a diverse team of web designers and web developers, for Nebraska businesses, who have been immersed in multiple website platforms over the years. Nevertheless, mastering a handful of platforms is better than trying to be an expert on everything. Because of that, we tend to service only these platforms for Nebraska websites:
In the past, we provided website maintenance and support for Joomla and Magento platforms of Nebraska businesses. However, we chose not to use those platforms so our web maintenance experts could focus on training and support within the more popular platforms.

WebCitz offers discounted Nebraska website maintenance services for clients interested in retaining our services through a pre-purchased block of time.
Example #1: You are an existing client in Nebraska with a 10-hour block of time ($1,095) on your account. You have a 30-minute phone call with your project manager to discuss tasks, but 15 minutes is spent talking about golf, weather, etc. The task took 40 minutes of work to complete, and didn't involve Laravel or custom programming. In this example, you would have 55 minutes deducted from your 10-hour block of time. The time spent talking about non business-related topics isn't billed.
Example #2: You are an existing client in Nebraska with a 10-hour block of time ($1,095) on your account. You put in a request that requires custom programming to build or modify a unique piece of functionality on your website. The task took 60 minutes of work. In this example, you would have 75 minutes of time deducted from your 10-hour block of time, since custom programming has a 1.25x multiplier of time.
For Nebraska site owners interested in proactive website upgrades, app / extension updates, website backups, performance monitoring, malware cleanup, and broken link monitoring.
* Laravel applications have a $2,500 set-up fee for management services, if the Laravel application wasn't developed by WebCitz.
Example #1: You are an existing Nebraska client with a 10-hour block of time ($1,095) on your account and a monthly website management subscription ($125/mo). During the month of website management, our team logged into your website, performed the necessary upgrades, tested your website's functionality, and reported back to you the website was upgraded without any issues. In this situation, no time would be deducted from your 10-hour block of time.
Example #2: The same situation and process as the first example, but while testing the functionality we discover something has broken. In this example, we would spend 15-20 minutes to attempt resolving the issue, at no charge to you. If we are unable to resolve the issue in that time, we would roll back your website to a previous state. From there, we would discuss resolutions with you that would be subject to time deductions from your 10-hour block of time.
For existing Nebraska website maintenance clients requiring off-hours support, please consider our emergency website service subscriptions.
Example #1: You are an existing Nebraska client with a 10-hour block of time ($1,095) on your account and a Level 1 SLA subscription ($495/mo). You require assistance on a Saturday afternoon, which isn't a holiday, and the work takes 45 minutes. That 45 minutes of work would be rounded to 60 minutes for the minimum deduction, then a 2x multiplier would be applied. The result would be 2 hours of time deducted from your 10-hour block.
Example #2: You are an existing Nebraska client with a 10-hour block of time ($1,095) on your account and a Level 1 SLA subscription ($495/mo). You require assistance on a Monday at 2PM CST, which isn't a holiday, and the work takes 45 minutes. You would have 45 minutes deducted from your 10-hour block.
