Website Development

web dev process

Design & Usability

Our team works diligently to create stable, valuable websites and web applications. We are committed to gold-standard development processes. Our websites not only give the front-end user a clear, memorable online experience, they’re also easy to update for back-end administrators.

Development

There are many ways to build a basic website. To save time and money, as well as to provide flexibility and rapid changes after the site is built, we typically use a Content Management System called WordPress.  We take this open-source code, and modify it to meet our requirements, adding critical security, and then we build the exact functionality needed for the business. Sometimes we can use off-the-shelf tools, and “tweek” them, and in other cases we build from scratch. This strategy includes e-commerce sites as well.

Research & Discovery

We dig into a business. We learn  the processes. We analyze the needs.  We use this information to uncover valuable insights and to address unique needs of the user. We also take into account budget, technical requirements, types of integrations, data migration and an in depth discussion on which platform is best for that business use. We have experts on our team who are skilled in WordPress, Magento, as well as bottom-up developments using various frameworks.

Design & User Experience

We focus on the user experience during every stage of development. From page naming, to menu architecture, to read-ablity of fonts and colors, our designers embrace the integration of function with usability.

Development

We leverage the strength of open-source technology to build effective, stable, and scalable solutions. Our skilled website development team comes from diverse backgrounds and are well-equipped to provide custom programming services that guarantee the end product.  Using open-source platforms like WordPress allows us to effect rapid development. Our PHP coders create custom functions, plugins, and applications directly into the open source framework chosen. Naturally, these open-source platforms are not the solution for every project. However for many, they save hundreds of hours of development time. And today, with our app-centric mobile users, we seamlessly integrate an app with most website projects.

Testing

If you have ever been part of building a system, you know how important testing is. Even for general information websites, we follow a testing protocol to assure every click on a page results in the intended action. We are proud of the product we produce.
