Your client's sign-off on the Web site project initiates the final stage of the Web site development process, the Post-Delivery phase.
The goal of this phase is to maintain and update the site.
Activities in this phase are often performed by your client's organization; however, there may be an arrangement for the development team (or another outsourcing provider) to maintain the site.
As with any Web design team, WebTeam's work does not end in Post-Delivery, even though the client has signed off on the project. Maintenance agreements are common between the client and design team; and if the client wants to upgrade, there is a good chance that they will turn to the team that built the original site; and the development cycle reverts to phase 1.
Click the WebTeam group to find the objectives, deliverables, and activities assigned for the Post-Delivery phase.
