Our Process

Requirements Gathering/Needs Assessment

The most critical element is gathering requirements. We work with you to listen to your ideas, vision, and expectations. We provide you with a requirements gathering document to fill so we bridge the gap between your needs and wants.

Mockup/Design

The visitor to your website must feel wowed and that can is accomplished in the design phase. Once we understand your visual design requirements, we develop mockups for you to review and markup. This is an iterative process and once the design is acceptable, we move into the development phase.

Development Phase (Agile Development)

The project is broken down into smaller manageable modules. Clear milestones are set and daily/weekly updates are given to ensure features are being implemented according to client expectations. The client is also given a live demo, where possible, to ensure nothing goes off track. This approach leads to reduced development timeframe and what is called agile development methodology.

Quality Assurance / Testing

We not only take pride in our work but we also believe that quality must be built into the development process. So, while work is checked by the developer at each step, the completed project is put through a rigorous testing process by a dedicated testing team. This allows us to make sure all bugs are removed and all pixels line up as per requirement.

Launch/Server Upload

One of the most critical elements of a website development is launching the new site with minimum disruption. Before the site is uploaded to client server we make sure client server has all the required tools/plug-in/etc so there are no last minute surprises.

Review Feedback, Make Suggestions, and Incorporate Changes

Once the site goes live, it's not the end of it. There are suggestions, feedback, updates, and host of other changes that need to be made on an on-going basis. We understand the continuous improvement process and will work with you to ensure that all the changes are made accurately and in a timely fashion.
