Exceptional websites start by understanding your requirements. We’ll ask you questions to understand your image, goals, budget, target markets, content requirements, reference sites, materials and desired outcomes. Basically, we’ll cover everything you know and want at this point.
Once we’ve learned what you need, it’s time to start planning how we are going to make it happen. We’ll map out your sites architecture, defining sections and pages including their flow and relationship to each other.
We’ll get our creative ideas flowing which results in us sketching and mocking-up your site. Choices about layout, type size and colour palettes are tested within a number of ideas—we’ll identify what works best in order to communicate your website’s goals. We’ll review the mock ups with you and refine/revise accordingly until we have approval.
Once your killer design is signed off we put your site into development. We’ll build a working system that mimics the final design with clean, semantic code. Your site is then deployed to a staging environment where we’ll rigorously test its functionality and iron out any bugs before handing the system over to you for testing.
Although we’re confident in our website development process, it always pays to properly test what has been developed with users and stakeholders to ensure everything is working according to specifications. Our testing phase involves other team members, and potentially third party testers using the website and giving feedback.
We ensure development is done according to best practice and to the latest standards of quality and with the best possible technologies available. We test to ensure performance is according to specifications and done with good quality.
Once you and our quality assurance teams are satisfied, we’ll put your website into a launch-ready state. Your website will require content. We’ll work with you to ensure you are unstoppable when it comes to using and populating your new website. When you’ve finally perfected the site, it’s time to release it to the public.
We offer maintenance support contracts in order to ensure your site’s CMS, plugins / add-ons and other frameworks are kept up to date and secure. We also include minor (non-design) and sometimes major (design) changes as part of the ongoing maintenance arrangement.
Our custom, carefully crafted designs are the foundation that produces long-lasting results and helps your business grow. Through a working partnership with our clients, we discover, plan, create and build the design, layout, elements and features for each website that best fit your company’s needs and take your marketing efforts to the next dimension.
We make sure your website looks amazing on all devices. At E-Web, responsive web design is part of our standard design service at no additional cost. Responsive design is a technique that allows a website to display properly on a wide range of devices, including smart phones and tablets, as well as desktop computers.
Our highly skilled development team can design and build web applications (both front and back end) depending on your requirements. This can also include integration with a vast number of backend systems through APIs. Web Applications enhance the functionality of your website allowing more complex and meaningful interaction with your audience.
Through our support contracts and maintenance agreements E-Web can also maintain whatever web applications we’ve built, as well as taking over maintenance for web applications built by other providers. It’s important to maintain these as often the APIs or other third-party integration software packages undergo updates and change how they interact with each other.
