why we are different


We believe that good support shouldn’t be a preserve of clients with large budgets. That is why every website that we provide comes with access to our market-leading support team.

Siteset was built on the principle that we create websites that put the client in control of their own content, which is why everything we build as standard is built on a content management system (CMS). This means that anytime you want, you can login and make changes to your site. But we also recognise that many of our customers also come to us because they don’t have the time to make changes themselves. 

That is why we created our client services team, who are solely dedicated to dealing with requests from our clients to update, change or create new content for their websites. But they are fully technical as well. If you need new domains to be set up, DNS records configured or bespoke code added to your site, they can help with this too.

We are here to provide our clients with the best experience in the industry. We strive to be better at what we do than anyone else and we don't settle for anything less!
Ange Seymour
Client Services Director
We understand our clients and their needs. If there are guidelines that need to be met, or standards to be protected, we learn these and then make sure they're always in place.

Client Services Team Leader

industry-leading standards


Every job that our team undertakes is tracked in our ticketing system, ensuring that we don’t miss a single request. The client services team deals with upwards of 40,000 individual requests (totalling nearly 90,000 tasks) each year, and we’re proud that we maintain service levels of consistently over 98%. Performance at this level is almost unknown in the industry!

Custom service levels can be agreed, as required, and our team can be trained to take on any number of review and quality control tasks in order to make sure your site is always meeting the regulatory requirements you are subject to.

Below you can see our full Service Level Agreement (SLA) for the websites we build.
