Our Work Process

We will use LastPass and related secure authentication browser extensions to enter your user name and password. These systems let you specify and share your credentials with us, and we just let the plugin provide the data without us viewing it. At any point, you can revoke our access or change your credentials.

You can send large files to us using online links to your google drive, dropbox, teams, or similar cloud sharing tools. You can also share videos from wistia, vimeo, vidyard, zoom, loom, etc. If you are sending a bunch of directories or files, using a .zip file archive can not only compress the files but group them into a single file.

Yes, we can open adobe files, images, svgs, pdfs, audio, music, videos, fonts, and more. We can also work with you or online services to convert files if you allow that. In some cases, we try not to convert files using internet tools to avoid sharing our original files.

Yes, your information will not be shared or sold to anyone. This includes email addresses, your course info, content, videos, images, documents, and assets. All data submitted is protected under copyright and intellectual property laws.

New work is reviewed as tickets, problems, and issues come in. While we do have larger teams available during the week during business hours, we still provide prioritized support during the early mornings, late evenings, and weekends. Across all our clients, we prioritize outages and critical errors over enhancements and review work.

We’ll always try to keep the majority of your system working for your customers. If we are going to do major surgery, then we may utilize a temporary down page while we perform our work. In addition, we will do more complex work during off hours like overnight instead of normal day hours for your customers.

The audits will occur at various times of the week and day. If we ever need to apply updates or patches, we will do those during the early morning or late evening to reduce any downtime for your students.
