1. MOVING FORWARD
a. Monthly Reporting
Almost all delivered code or platforms rely on a suite of third party extensions and codebases. The state of these platforms are monitored by ITrex. ITrex will deliver a monthly written or verbal report which will outline industry developments, potential issues on the horizon, ideas about the direction of your product, or updates to pricing or terms of any third party agreement.

c. Urgent Support
As ITrex is monitoring uptime every minute ITrex will be almost immediately informed if any key digital service is offline. Text messages are sent to key ITrex employees on failure of your key systems. ITrex will forward the issue, marked as high priority, to the first available representative for assessment. ITrex will inform you of any downtime or major issues as soon as ITrex is made aware of them.
d. All Support
In the ITrex Care package the key objective is to ensure your website stays online and effectively managed.

3. MAINTAIN REPUTATION
