Small Business Solutions

Your small business values your website and digital assets but downtime won't stop your business in its tracks and you need to be budget-conscious about your small business solutions.  Perhaps you're running an informational website or maybe you have a light ecommerce interface on Shopify or WooCommerce. Arcane has ways to help support and optimize your assets:

Contactless WooCommerce Point of Sale

For $4.99 per user, you can now convert your eCommerce store directly into an in-person point of sale system!

We understand that small businesses cannot afford the high price-point of a custom point of sale solution on WooCommerce.  Even moreso, ERP integrations and syncing order data between offline sales and WooCommerce sales can be extremely tedious.  As Stripe.com verified partners and contributors to WooCommerce and Shopify, we've created a solution to allow small businesses to convert their web store into an in-person point of sale system which even supports contactless EMV payments, apple pay, samsung pay, and google pay!

Managed WordPress

For $19.99/mo, our service gets you access to our staff of WordPress contributing developers to help you diagnose critical errors on your site and direct you towards cost-effective solutions, at no additional cost, regardless of where you host

> Customers save an average of $130 per support request.

> Our developers are WordPress experts who've built plugins and core updates for the WordPress.org team and have passed a code review by WordPress.org's review engineers.

Brand and Domain AI

Small businesses may find it difficult to get a fair shake at decent domain at a decent price.  With domain squatters and premium listing prices, arriving at a brand name for a business or product can be time intensive and frustrating.  We can help you with that!  Our service is 100% free to use and we'll even direct you where to where you can buy these domains.

> Visit our Domain & Brand Name generator and give us some examples of brands you'd like to align or compete with.

> Arcane's proprietary AI will find patterns in your aligning brands on 50+ attributes and find one that fits your budget!

WordPress Managed Services

Are you hosting your WordPress site on managed hosting or serverless architecture like Azure, SiteGround, or WordPress VIP?

Leveraging managed hosting or serverless architecture is a great way to relieve yourself of the stresses of server maintenance but it does have its trade-offs.
  • Like many other managed hosting offers, serverless architecture offers you a hosted solution on a provider-controlled environment.  What happens when updates aren't compatible with your application?  Can you afford the impact to your application?  How long would it take you to on-board contractors to address the problem?
  • Whether connecting to remote databases, or creating and retrieving API-connected storage on the fly, networking is of critical importance but frequently problematic.  Blocked or dropped API calls or firewall restricted remote access can cause your operations to come to an immediate halt.  Can you afford the downtime and costs involved in hiring a contractor?
With wordpress managed services, your monthly subscription gets you prompt service, at a nominal fee, to address problems your hosting provider cannot. Benefit from Arcane's off-shore ticketing system with hands-on support for your website on your control panel (CPanel, Plesk, or otherwise) thanks to our monitoring alerts and support requests within 24 hours of the incident.
