Web & CiviCRM Maintenance and Support Plans

Palante offers monthly maintenance and support plans for Backdrop, Drupal, WordPress and CiviCRM. These plans are designed to keep your sites and databases running smoothly and without interruptions, your software up-to-date with the latest bug and security fixes, and your important data backed up and protected, all with no intervention on your part so that you can focus on your organization's important work.


What are the advantages of a maintenance or support plan over normal hourly work?

  • Guaranteed availability: With a maintenance or support plan, you've reserved Palante's time in advance, so we'll be better prepared to handle any unexpected emergencies or urgent needs.

  • Rapid response and quicker turnaround times: Maintenance and support plan clients are given priority in our work schedules. We are committed to resolving site outages and other major problems for maintenance plan clients as quickly as possible. We also provide support plan clients with same-day turnaround for urgent incidents and expedited responses to non-urgent questions and support requests.

  • Automated 24/7 monitoring and alerts: We set up automated monitoring and notification systems that keep watch over important services and assets, including site availability and proper functioning, domain name expiration, SSL certificate expiration, properly running scheduled backups, and other critical items. This helps us prevent many major problems before they happen and allows us to intervene as quickly as possible when problems do occur.

  • A predictable, flat monthly fee for maintenance and support: Make your tech budgeting easier by eliminating some of the uncertainty with our flat rates.
