Furthering our goal of continuing to provide excellent post-launch support and maintenance for our clients here at WebDevStudios, we are so excited to announce that we have completed the acquisition of Maintainn in order to fully bring ongoing support and maintenance services in-house.
Maintainn is a professional WordPress support and services shop founded by Shayne Sanderson in 2012 and they provide professional WordPress support and maintenance services including 24/7 security monitoring, daily off-site backups, weekly updates to WordPress core, themes and plugins, a dedicated WordPress support desk and custom development.
At Maintainn, Shayne has assembled a dynamic team of active members of the WordPress community providing both back end and front end support for their WordPress clients. This is a natural fit with our team and offerings at WebDevStudios. So much so, that in early 2014, we contracted with Shayne’s team at Maintainn to help support our growing need for ongoing maintenance and support of our existing client base. In working with Maintainn over the past several months, it became crystal clear to us that we could go far together in meeting those goals of both sets of clients (ours and Maintainn’s) and just a little over a month ago, we reached out to Shayne with an offer that we felt made a lot of sense for both parties.
What does this mean for Maintainn’s existing client base? As our in-house support team, Maintainn immediately gains the benefit of WebDev’s existing development and design bench strength, which enables us to increase Maintainn’s offerings of support and maintenance with the confidence that comes with a large team of experienced and talented developers who excel at what they do. All of the services and packages you already know and love from Maintainn will remain available with the peace of mind and confidence of knowing that Maintainn now has the support and backbone of WebDevStudios experience and skill.
By acquiring Maintainn, WebDevStudios gains an existing infrastructure of WordPress support services that our existing client base will immediately benefit from. Maintainn instantly becomes our in-house team of dedicated, experienced and skilled support and maintenance that enables us to continue to provide our clients (old and new) with confident, skilled support that starts immediately following the launch of their latest web site.
In the distant past, Shayne Sanderson was once an employee of WebDevStudios and held the role of Project Manager – a role that he excelled in. He left WebDevStudios in October 2013 to focus his efforts on growing and improving Maintainn, and always remained a close friend and valued partner to us.
Maintainn becomes our 1-stop support and maintenance entity. It will support all of our client retainers as well as any incoming clients looking for maintenance and support specifically. Shayne will continue to head the effort with his team as Director of Support at WDS, and we’re excited about Maintainn’s future!
We are thrilled to have Shayne back at WebDevStudios! Shayne has built a truly amazing platform at Maintainn. It is both our honor and our privledge to bring Maintainn into the WebDevStudios family with the intention of supporting the growth and success of our WordPress support and maintenance offerings now, and in the future.
