The following section illustrates the process of developing your project from concept to placing your site in live operation, and onwards through on-going support and future development.
During an initial period of consultation we discuss your ideas and aspirations for your website in the context of your overall business aims and objectives. We consider design, functionality, timeframe and costs for your project and where appropriate, assist in the development of a web site specification.
All professional web-sites should start with a web site specification. For small businesses this may be written on one side of A4 paper, but for more advanced sites this may require extensive documentation. The website functional, technical and design specification outlines those elements which describe exactly how the website should work, what web technologies should be used and how the site should look on the web.
Onto the fun part! Your site design process begins. This may take days, weeks or even months depending on the scope of your project and other requirements, however our quotation will specify the likely period of this stage of the process. The design process for larger projects is typically divided into phases with ongoing communications between you and your web project manager.
At such time as the final design has been approved and all site functions have been developed and implemented, we move to the testing phase. Here the website is put through its paces and tested.
Approval & Website Launch
Once testing is complete we are able to place your site in live operation. An agreed date for this is set considering associated factors. Cue the champagne!!
