Agency for TYPO3 development, support and optimization

We develop, extend and optimize websites based on TYPO3. Our service is fast, competent and reliable. Our prices are fair and transparent.

Web design for visitors

A web design that is oriented towards visitor benefit: Short loading times, responsive behavior and intuitive, low-barrier operation. This maximization of the so-called "user experience" is also rewarded by search engines.

Development & Optimization

Proper programming is important: it is the basis for a fast, maintainable and easy-to-use system. This is called "integration". And for that we have certified integrators, developers, editors and consultants.

Constant improvement

Our TYPO3 support includes all technical tasks around TYPO3: extension development, TYPO3 updates, search engine optimization, editorial support, reliable hosting with automatic security updates and much more.

  • the classic relaunch (web design/programming/search engine optimization) based on a current TYPO3 LTS version and using modern technologies (AMP, SOLR, Progressive WebApps, Structured Data, etc.)
  • the programming of sophisticated extensions for your website (e.g. eCommerce extensions, interfaces to in-house or third-party systems, complex dialog systems, etc.)
  • the optimization & expansion of already existing websites
  • reliable, fast and uncomplicated TYPO3 support
  • immediate telephone help (first level support)
  • TYPO3 updates and proactive security updates
  • web analysis & search engine optimization with TYPO3
  • Website hosting and monitoring (including availability, load balance, link validation)

Non-profit organizations are e.g. associations, public institutions (e.g. institutions under public law), associations, churches, non-profit educational institutions (e.g. schools), scientific institutions (universities, research institutes, etc.).

For organizations with a particularly high service requirement we offer so-called Service Level Agreements (SLA). Within the framework of such an agreement, our agency not only provides extra services, but also charges lower hourly rates:

That's why we not only publish our hourly rates but also present you with the costs you can expect from our agency for certain project activities. This will not only give you an impression of our service structure, but also a useful price indication for your project. Here is a cost overview of typical TYPO3 projects.
