Having started and assisted with several Internet-based startups, we understand all the intricate details of launching it entails, including all the mistakes you might make. Part of our job is to make sure you don't have to make those mistakes which are both time consuming and expensive. Therefore may not agree with all your ideas, in fact we might strongly challenge them in order to offer what we believe is a better strategy.
We try to engage and inspire our clients to optimize the way they are conducting business online and offline. In order to make everything fit together into one consistent, reliable and predictable manner, there is a lot to think about.
We have to dig deep to understand our clients business, and it is equally impossible for a client to understand all the details of what goes on behind the scenes of building their website. Therefore, both trust and great communication is paramount to the projects success. We have developed a method (that we constantly try to improve upon) to drive a web project successfully to completion.
This is the most important phase of them all. The more time spent here, the better. Any website project requires careful planning, and with Drupal this is even more true.
We make sure that we really understand each other and that we are crystal clear about what the final result is going to be like.
The application layer is where the rubber hits the road. The final result of this phase is a fully functional web application.
To not get distracted from function and user experience, we use a really boring and minimal interface while we develop the system to the required specificaitons.
Design & Form
In this phase, we create what the end user actually sees and a finished design for mobile, handheld and desktop devices takes form.
After design approval we convert the design into a cutting-edge, responsive, SEO-friendly and very capable HTML5 / CSS3 / jQuery front-end.
Once the website is done, its time to fit the booster rockets to it and launch. Every website is different and every website has different needs.
Regardless if all you need is a shared hosting account or if you need 5 databaseservers, 4 webservers, 2 varnish servers and a loadbalancer, we can deploy it for you.
In this phase we perform rigorous function, cross-compatibility and performance testing to make sure the website works as it should and performs as it should.
Fast delivery is a high priority for any business, therefore we aim for the goal that all desktop users should see the webpage load within 3 seconds.
Once the website is up and running, our role shifts from developers to maintenance team. Like a car, a modern website breaks down if it is not maintained properly.
Maintenance needs depends on the project scope. The specific maintenance needs for your project will become clear in the planning phase.
