Assessing the situation, goals, and requirements
We begin by assessing your current environment and technology stack, speaking to your key stakeholders and tech leads. Our goal is to understand your business needs, and learn how these inform your technology requirements. If we’re also designing your website, technical discovery is part of an integrated discovery and strategy process.
Creating a tech strategy that works
An optimal technology architecture requires a skillful balancing of factors – current and future needs, workflows, integrations, regulatory requirements, in-house technical resources and, of course, budget – to arrive at the right solution.
Our experienced technology team acts as your strategic partners – helping you rebuild your tech stack or finding a solution that plays nicely with the tools you have.
IA, Design + Copywriting
Delivering a complete website solution
We’re an end-to-end website development agency, so we are more than capable of handling your digital strategy, information architecture, website design, and content creation.
We begin planning early for the features we know the site will need, so that we can
scope development appropriately. And we architect and design the website with an understanding of the unique capabilities of the platform the site will be built on.
Front- and Back-End Coding
We find the majority of our clients prefer a hybrid development approach, where we build the MVP using a Waterfall methodology, and then add new features and improvements in Agile
sprints, but we can and do work in other ways.
Every build is assigned a dedicated technical Project Manager, who will support your equally dedicated Account Director in efficiently managing work quality, time, and budget.
Testing against over 100 checkpoints
We’re fanatical about QA, with dedicated teams ruthlessly evaluating the site against over 100 checkpoints before it even gets close to going live.
We like to get our clients involved – while the site is in beta, it lives on a development server, where you and your team can play with it, try to break it, and help us eradicate any bugs.
CMS Training + Launch
Preparing your team for handover
When we deliver your new site, we don’t just throw you the keys and run. We walk you through the CMS, show you how to use it (and how not to use it), and make sure everyone touching the website is comfortable with managing it. Launch day is time to celebrate – and to start planning enhancements that deliver even more value to your users and business.
