Who We Are

Tenrec is a website management agency founded in San Francisco in 1997 and now operating as a fully remote company with employees in seven states and three countries. Our primary service is managing the WordPress-powered websites of professional service firms and software companies.

While we sometimes design and build websites, our primary focus is on hosting, managing and optimizing all aspects of critical business websites and web applications. Our services include web engineering, web design, traffic generation, traffic analytics, compliance testing, systems integration, digital marketing consulting, quality assurance, training, project management, hosting and more.

Tenrec is a different kind of website management agency. The essence of that difference is our focus on customer service and the level to which we collaborate with our clients. Tenrec has worked with organizations of all sizes, from Fortune 50 companies to sole proprietors. For over 25 years Tenrec’s business has been sustained by the relationships we have with our clients and the development and support services that we deliver. 

To better understand the value of website management and the breadth of services it covers, please read our article “Website Management Essentials: The six elements your business needs to create a successful website management program.”
