Snow Valley has agreed a partnership deal with Site Confidence, the external website monitoring service and performance testing provider.

The deal will allow Snow Valley to extend their e-commerce operations package, offering Site Confidence services as an integral part of the Snow Valley platform.

Snow Valley clients will continue to benefit from the comprehensive internal e-commerce systems monitoring service that the company has developed over the past ten years. From now, clients will also be able to sign up for the Site Confidence external monitoring service, giving them access to an extensive range of reports about the performance of their website and allowing them to be alerted with detailed information on any issues as they occur.

Site Confidence load testing services will also be available as part of Snow Valley’s e-commerce operations package. Snow Valley’s standard development process includes a programme of load testing; with the additional service clients will also have access to third party measurement.

Sarah Clelland, Marketing Manager at Snow Valley, said, “Snow Valley’s aim is to deliver world-class e-commerce solutions that perform consistently around the clock and throughout the year. Site Confidence allows us to demonstrate that level of performance to our clients, while also giving them the peace of mind that an objective service provider can offer.”

“By partnering with Site Confidence we’re making it easier for our clients to get the reassurance that they want, at a reduced cost and without the hassle of managing an extra supplier.”

Mike Smith, Business Development Manager at Site Confidence, commented, “We’re very pleased to be working with Snow Valley. We share the same commitment to giving customers an exceptional online experience and we look forward to developing our relationship.”
