Audit focus areas are tailored to your needs

With nearly 25 years of experience, we firmly believe that digital excellence is achieved through the synergy of quality code, user-friendly design, and streamlined development practices. That’s why our audits are led by seasoned professionals in software development, architecture, technical project management, and UX design.

The audit process begins with an initial overview and consultation with our digital business specialist to outline your key priorities. From there, audit focus areas are meticulously selected and prioritized to align with your objectives.

This is our approach once the survey priorities are determined:

1. Initiation phase

We form a team of experts most suitable for your needs and ensure all necessary software, services, and materials are prepared

2. Workshop sessions

Our experts facilitate two-hour workshops with you for each section under scrutiny. Following this, independent assessments are conducted by our experts.

3. Evaluation of findings

The experts conducting the audit analyze the findings and recommendations, culminating in a comprehensive summary.

4. Audit review meeting

We conduct a session to review the summary of findings and recommendations with you. You’ll receive a detailed written document of the entire audit alongside a concise summary of key points. This summary can be utilized for various purposes, such as supporting tenders or sharing with other teams within your organization. The digital development audit is always conducted under the terms of an IT2022 contract, ensuring confidentiality and data handling protocols are followed, and rights to the materials produced are respected.

Price depends on the scope of the audit

There will be no surprises in the cost of the digital development audit process. The base fee is consistently €3000, covering project management and reporting.

The actual expert work (€6000 per section) and additional services (€1000 – €3000 per additional service) will be agreed and calibrated together in the initial stage of the audit.

Example 1: Audit of development process efficiency and installation of a local development environment totals 3000€ + 6000€ + 3000€ = 12000€ (VAT 0%).

Example 2: Audit of UX value amounts to 3000€ + 6000€ = 9000€ (VAT 0%).

We also offer WordPress site audits for €4000. This price includes the basic fee and an audit customized to your WordPress requirements. The audit is a prerequisite for Sofokus maintenance and development services. Furthermore, our maintenance services are contingent upon the implementation of any recommendations resulting from the audit.

The audit will help you develop your services more efficiently

If the audit identifies critical areas for improvement or potential opportunities to enhance your business, we are eager to assist you in finding and implementing the necessary solutions.

Embarking on the development of new services to elevate your business becomes much smoother with a comprehensive understanding of your current digital landscape. That’s why we offer a 10% discount on our digital service design sprints if you choose to transition from an audit to our design services.

However, undergoing the audit does not obligate you to continue working with us if you deem it unnecessary. You can also collaborate with your own development team or utilize our report to engage your preferred service provider.
