Time & Materials

Time & Materials

Project start dates are dependant on: The following timelines are all based on average workload, but these times can be less or more depending on a number of variables, such as:

  • What stage your website project is at. Sometimes it does not make sense to load the content of your website because other tasks need to be completed first. For example we cant start loading content until the website has been built.
  • Your priorities. Sometimes there are more important tasks that need to be completed first based on your website objectives.
  • Third party involvement, such as an integration company completing their work or a third party design company providing the logo.
  • Your availability for meetings, input and sign-off.
  • The supply of content such as photos, copywriting, design work ie logo, products to load, planning of a promotion
  • Zeald workload and schedule. We do experience a peak season and heavy work load, especially leading up to Christmas.
  • The collection of data. Some projects require a period of time to collect data through analytic's or similar metrics. We need a period of time and enough data to make educated decisions

For an uptodate estimation of Time & Materials start dates please contact our support team.

If we do not think we will meet our suggested milestones, we will do our best to communicate with you as early as possible the reasons for possible delays and provide you with updated estimated milestones.

For urgent tasks we can discuss these with you and possibly re-prioritise with the team to see if we can fit them in the schedule earlier.

We can work on other tasks in other areas to maintain a forward traction.
