Development Process

We do full construction of websites and web applications of any complexity from business cards to large ERP systems. Our team carries out projects from scratch and turnkey ready covering all the critical aspects of security, performance, and scalability. We develop an individual platform-responsive design and follow the best methodologies and design architecture concepts.



Process

Our team develops turnkey ready solutions. We are a full-cycle web studio who creates web-projects from an idea to the final release. Besides, we provide support and maintenance afterward.

If you want to learn more about the process of creating websites in our company, read this article, please.


Initial contact with a client and collection of the main requirements

Contact us to discuss the requirements for a website or application you want to be developed. First, our specialists will study all the information regarding the project and suggest possible ways of implementation. Then, they will provide a rough estimation based on the initial acquaintance with the system demands. Afterward, this estimation will be updated when more detailed examination and analysis are performed.

 

If a client has a technical specification of a project

Our task will be simplified greatly if you have a detailed project specification. This will help our team understand the system requirements better and move to the next step.

 

Offering to fill in the questionnaire form to clarify the initial requirements

In case you do not have a detailed technical specification, we suggest filling out a questionnaire form, which we will provide to you. Then, this form will be transformed into a project brief. It will help us determine the type and complexity of your system. Based on the brief, we will be able to create a site map and define the functionality of each section of the website.

 

Clarification of the initially provided materials and requirements through communication

While examining the requirements, specialists will ask a number of questions about the functionality of the future system. In most cases, additional questions occur even if we have a detailed technical specification provided. We arrange a meeting with the client over Skype or communicate in correspondence to make sure that we understand the requirements in the smallest details.

 

Analysis of whether there is enough information to estimate the timing and cost

The previous steps related to becoming acquainted with the project can be repeated to make sure that we fully understand all the requirements for the system.

 

Offering either the system architecture design service or a flexible development methodology

In some cases, it is not possible to obtain all the system requirements after reviewing the description of the system received initially from the customer. For example, there is no detailed technical specification or the customer has only a basic vision of the functional and he is not completely sure which modules he needs in the completed version of the product. In this case, we can offer a system architecture design service, which will include functional analysis of products similar to the one the customer wants to be developed. We draw up technical specifications for the product in several configurations and schedule the work on the project. Besides, we can prepare a technical specification for what is called the minimum viable product (MVP) - the first minimum efficient version of the product. MVP allows launching the system within a short term. MVP provides the ability to test its usefulness and test hypotheses in working mode. After that, it is possible to continue working on subsequent versions of the product on a flexible development methodology, separately planning each new version of the product.

 

Making and approving the assessment on time and cost

We provide a time and cost estimation for the product development. Sometimes we provide several estimations for each possible product configuration and approve with the client the one which is most suitable for him.

 

Making an agreement for the system development

We draw up and sign a development contract to which we attach the pre-written system specifications.

 

Providing the customer with methods and tools for controlling the development process

We make the development process transparent and understandable for each customer. We give them access to our tracking system so they could see the process, status and comments on each individual task. At the end of each development stage, we provide a report regarding all the completed tasks for this stage with detailed instructions on how they can be tested.

 

Creating and approving the design of the system

Our designers create a visual interface of the system taking into account not only beauty but also the convenience of the system, usability, and design ergonomics.

 

Creating HTML-layouts

Our HTML-coders create adaptive and responsive website layouts that look good on all screen resolutions, in all popular browsers and operating systems. We create code optimized for search engines.

 

Programing modules of the new system based on the approved plan

Our developers carry out the programming process using reliable concepts for developing code and building a system architecture which is flexible for expansion and modification.

 

Performing comprehensive automatic or manual testing

Our QA/QC testers check the functionality of the website and its usability. We perform browser testing to make sure that the website looks good on all devices. At a client's request, a set of acceptance tests may be developed.

 

Instructing the customer's team on the site management mechanism

Our managers explain to the client and their team the functionality of the website administration panel and the content management system. We provide algorithms for filling the website with content. Our team trains their personnel to work with the interface during a Skype call or by providing a written description.

 

Installing the project on the production server

Our system administrators transfer the system to the production server where the website will be accessible to the end-users after its configuration.

 

We fill the website with content or consult on using the content management system

Our specialists can fill your website with text and graphic content if you provide the corresponding materials at this stage.

 

Providing website maintenance and support

After the release of the project, we carry out the modernization and support of the system. Our team adds new modules and content sections of the website as well if the client requests it.


I hope that we fully explained the process of creating websites. However, if you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us and we will provide additional information on any aspects you are interested in.
