From start to finish, we adopt a very close working relationship with our clients. From coming up with an initial look and feel for the site, to providing ongoing support. Our process typically works as follows:
We hold in-depth meetings with you to discuss the requirements for your online presence. In this phase, we aim to define the broad requirements, and any detail which is requisite in order to commence work.
Wireframing & Design
We’ll work closely with you to pinpoint the right look and feel for your online presence. This typically entails the production of several visual prototypes of a homepage along different themes, and once an overall visual direction is selected, work begins on the exploration of the various content pages required, such as the product detail page, item listing page, content pages, and any other non-standard layouts which may be required (e.g. a special competition page, or something of the ilk).
Once you’re happy with the look, designs are coded into cross browser XHTML & CSS. During this phase, we’ll take the agreed upon designs, and integrate them into bluCommerce. We’ll also develop and bespoke features or integrations required, although this phase typically begins in parallel with phase 2, particularly where back-end work is required (e.g. ERP integrations).
Code resides on our testing servers while we conduct thorough use-case and user acceptance testing. We test both with automated tools, to ensure that functionality works, and with you, to ensure that it works as you expect. During this phase, we’ll typically iterate rapidly with your staff to tweak, tune, change and consolidate elements of the site.
We can come to your office location and train you on-site. This is typically a relatively painless process, as we aim for bluCommerce to be as intuitive as possible.
Once testing is complete and we then set the website live. The direct process of launch is somewhat variable, as it depends on specific client needs and the platform, if any, being migrated from.
All our support staff are on hand to ensure continual smooth operation of your website, and we’re on hand to help you grow your eCommerce and multi-channel presence into the future!
