Imagine, Plan & Develop
Before we start any project, it is important for us to understand your requirements. So, we first request you to share your requirements and features that you need on your website. On that basis, we develop a sitemap to provide a clear vision of the website structure. Sitemap allows us to understand how the inner structure of a website looks like before we start to code or even work on the design. You’d also be required to share any available content and pictures you want in the website, and provide information about the website purpose, your competitors and the end user, so that we can create something to meet your needs better. Once we have a thorough understanding of your requirements, we head for the design process.
Drawing from the information gathered up to this point, it’s time to determine the look and feel of your site. Our UX and UI designing team may ask more questions on those topics to have a clear mindset about the kind of design you’re looking for. In this phase, communication between both you and our designer is crucial to ensure that the final website will match your needs and taste. We first start by designing the homepage. As the design comes to shape, it is first approved by our internal team and then sent to you. Next, you’re invited to give any feedback or changes that you need on this page. Once homepage is approved, we design the other pages accordingly ensuring that it matches with your needs. We provide you with the design in a digital form or in our test server allowing you to view your project throughout the design and development stages. The most important reason for this is that it gives you the opportunity to express your likes and dislikes on the site design, allowing us to make amendments accordingly.
Once the design is approved, we then move towards developing the website. This is the stage where the website is made functional. Features such as database designing, content management system (CMS), forms, login systems, payments or any approved components are implemented and made functional during this phase. Our QA team works closely with the development team in order to ensure that there are minimal bugs before we present it to you. The entire time, our team would continue to make your in-progress website available to you for viewing on our test server, so that you can suggest any additional changes or corrections. As a part of QA, we also test things such as the complete functionality of forms or other scripts, as well as compatibility issues with various browsers and devices, ensuring that your website is optimized to be viewed properly in the most recent browser versions.
On completion of development and testing of the website, you would be required to give your final approval so that we can upload your website to live server and make it available to the world. Website access would be provided to you and it would be hosted as per your requirement. As the website is setup and uploaded to the server, the site is put through one last test to confirm that all the files have been uploaded correctly and that the site if fully functional. This marks the official launch of your site, as it is now viewable to the public.
Once the website is live, you may want regular maintenance and support to ensure that the website is up and running perfectly. As a part of maintenance and support, we offer services like taking regular backups of your website and database, restoring website from backups if required, malware scanning and removal, upgrading website design, making changes, additions or modifications to your website. Although, we provide you with a content management system or an admin panel to update your products and content on a regular basis, it’s totally up to you if you’d like us to handle or do it yourself. Some clients prefer to do it themselves whereas others prefer to hand over the website entirely, as they have other tasks that are probably more important for them to handle. That’s where we can help you and take over the responsibility of maintaining the website. We offer various maintenance and support plans depending on the exact requirements.
