Requirements Gathering

DISCOVERING THE RIGHT CHALLENGES TO SOLVE

Before starting any web project, we need to fully understand the requirements. Without them, the project is like building a house without knowing the needs of the home owner.

Proceeding without specifications, or even a basic plan, is like taking a swan dive into three feet of water. The progress will be brief, and you'll feel the effects for a long, long time. If you are tasked with discovering and defining the requirements, we recommend you follow these simple steps.

  • Listen
  • Ask
  • Suggest

Planning

THE SCIENCE IS IN THE PROCESS

No two projects are exactly the same, but a system that can adjust to the idiosyncrasies of your business makes getting from zero to the finish line possible.

For that reason we have developed our own project management platform that adheres to agile project management standards, and adjusts to meet your needs, while allowing us to provide you insights, resources, and responsiveness you would get no where else.

When a project is rolling, it takes an extreme amount of discipline and experiene to decide when an idea is worth changing direction for, or when it will hinder progress and should be saved for a future iteration.

Communication

COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE

The success of a complex project hinges on everyone communicating with each other throughout the process. We engage in open, honest and regular communication. Talking to the client helps us hear all the bumps in the road. Our clients end up feeling like team members rather than clients.

We make a habit of staying in touch with every stakeholder with:

  • Internal Status Meetings. They don't have to be hour-long gab fests, but a quick check-in meeting for updates and next steps works wonders to keep a complex project moving.
  • Client Status Meetings. Brief touch-base meetings with our clients can keep them posted on your progress and remind them of upcoming deadlines.

Design

DIGITAL SOLUTIONS DESIGNED FOR HUMAN INTERACTION

Design creates a direct connections between you and your customer. It's where brand expectation can be missed or exceeded.

Your user interface isn't window dressing. It showcases products and services, meets user needs and demonstrates your commitment to customer service. It frames the engagement your customers have with your organization. Good web design isn't actively noticed as much as it is passively experienced through intuitiveness and delight.

Our collaborative design process involves research, sketching, prototyping and an iterative approach based on testing and user feedback. The result is a human-centric solution that's as effective as it is a delight to use.

Development

WHEN IT COMES TO WRITING QUALITY CODE, IT'S PERSONAL

We're obsessive about developing secure, scalable, performant and flexible web-based products and platforms for our clients.

It's important to us that code be written the right way and be purposeful. We architect solutions for interconnectivity by thinking of web-based solutions as distributed solutions rather than monolithic structures. Using modern code libraries, architectures, and API systems, we build for long-term maintainability, portability and upgradability.

Testing

ALMOST DONE...WE'VE PRETTY MUCH GOT A FUNCTIONAL SITE AT THIS POINT

We go through the entire project and test everything...

Unlike software development, web based applications need intensive testing, as the application will always function as a multi-user system with bandwidth limitations. Some of the testing that will be performed are, integration testings, Stress testing, Scalability testing, Load testing, Resolution testing, and cross-browser compatibility testing. Both automated testing and manual testing will be done withoug fail.

These testing procedures are necessary as there are always a few little details that get overlooked in the Development Phase that need to be tweaked in the testing or Q&A phase.

Go Live

THE REAL FUN STARTS WHEN A SITE GOES LIVE

Once everything is working beautifully, it's time to plan and execute your launch!

This should include planning both launch timing and communication strategies - i.e., when will you launch and how will you let the world know?

After that, it's time to break out the bubbly.
