Failing to plan is planning to fail. Because satisfying our customers needs is our main priority, we take planning very seriously at all times and especially early on when we can still easily change all aspects of the project. All our projects therefore begin with a precise plan of what we are going to do. We collect as much information as we can from our customers first, to understand exactly how we should structure the project. This process will begin with you.
After completing a plan, we do a market research about your company. We analyse information about the industry you are working in, your competitors, suppliers and buyers’ behaviour. Industry analysis helps us identify the main trends in the market and understand what are the necessary attributes for your project. The outcome of our research will enable us to create the best site in your sector that meets your business goals and your customers’ needs.
Wireframing is the first step in your website’s creation. At this stage our designers make a visual representation of your website pages. They allocate all the elements of the website in every page. During the wireframing stage the webpage will have no colour or content. This period of the project is designed to help us identify how all the objects of the page will be measured and allocated.
When the wireframes are agreed, we will proceed to the design stage of your project. When creating a design for your project we will focus on your corporate identity and styling preferences. You will be completely involved in the design process and we will do our best to satisfy your highest expectations.
At this stage our developers start transforming the picture created by the designers into a working responsive website. They work hard to ensure all the applications are responsive, secure and work well for your specific needs. They also look for and resolve any anticipated issues each application may face, to ensure that they operate in a smooth, smart and simple way. Part of this process will involve them looking at the front-end and the back-end code, to make sure everything works correctly.
The beta testing phase is a very important step towards ensuring your website is ready to be launched on the World Wide Web without any major technical hitches. The website is almost ready at this stage. We download it to one of our internal servers – not available to the public, and start simulating custom issues that may happen to a website or on it. First, we test whether everything functions well well on the website. Secondly, we generate errors to check if the system will still cope with them. We stress these issues to make sure that the website will remain stable, should similar issues occur and then finally, we try to hack the website like hackers do. We know exactly how hackers work and it is very important to us to know that we have made your site as hack-proof as we can. After that it is your turn to test the website. We will give you access to our server so that you can check the website yourself. If you don’t like something, we will improve it for you.
This is the last step in the process. The project can only reach this stage once it is complete and the customer is fully satisfied. Your website will therefore only go live once it is ready to be used by visitors and you are completely happy with it, and you have told us to launch it. We will also be more than happy to provide you a hosting solution, and help you with any maintenance your site might need. And if you ever need a website redesign or update in the future, who else would know the product better than the folks who built it? We’re always delighted to serve you again.
