Automation Logic approached Impact Media, after realising their existing support and maintenance partner could no longer meet their needs, or help them achieve their ambitious vision.
They were also using a popular third party hosting service, which was hampering their website’s performance. It was only scoring an F in tests with GTMetrix.
Challenge & Objectives
Automation Logic came to Impact Media for WordPress Support having parted ways with their previous agency, who could no longer provide the level of service required.
Before moving to us, they had very little creative control over their website and found it took a long time for requests to be implemented. They found that maintenance was not proactive, and it was hard to speak to anyone when they needed urgent support.

Performance wise their website scored an F 36% in GTMetrix.
They needed a partner who could provide UX, design and development expertise, whilst being trusted to deliver on proactive support, maintenance, and quality WordPress optimised managed hosting.
