INFORMATION GATHERING –(KICK OFF PROCESS)
The DRC Infotech website build process begins with a kickoff meeting. At this meeting, you’ll meet the web marketing member of the DRC Infotech team and share with us your goals for your new website. We’ll talk about your project goals and to help you identify the solutions that will be right for your organization. We’ll also set up some time frames for the project, so you’ll know what to expect. The knowledge gained in the discovery phase will shape an Internet strategy appropriate to your business goals
Drawing on the information and guidance we receive from you during the Kickoff meeting, along with our own expertise, we begin to organize the groundwork for the project. We’ll help you define a clear strategy and develop a road map. By including you in our strategic development process, we ensure that our creative work is never rooted in ambiguous strategies. The strategy we develop together will guide the entire project, ensuring that the final product meets your objectives.
This is where the excitement begins! Our award–winning design team will make a custom website design for your business. During the design phase, you’ll start seeing color palettes and design elements based on the site map and wireframes. We work collaboratively throughout the creative process, both internally and with you. Typically, you’ll receive a proof of the home page and a few content pages to review and sign off on before our developers start building your site.
The development phase is one of the more labor intensive parts of the process, but it’s also the key to a successful website. Our professional web development team modifies the newly approved designs into a working website that your customers will love and keep coming back to. While browsers and viewing devices continue to evolve at a rapid speed, the DRC Infotech team provides a solid framework to maximize the lifespan of your site. Once the site is built, we’ll put it on a protected server where you can take it for a test drive. Even more awesome is that we can create mobile specific styling, providing you with a mobile friendly layout and customized navigational buttons (think mobile site), whilst still being the same website!
TEST AND DELIVERING
Before we launch your website, our team completely tests all of its features. Our testing list is long and includes key items such as form validation testing, other scripts, browser compatibility checks, and e-commerce purchase testing (if applicable), ensuring that the site is optimized to be viewed properly in the most recent browser versions. We also re–test your website after launch to make sure everything is running in the live environment.
Once we receive your final approval, it is time to deliver the site. We’ll help you choose a hosting provider and will establish the tasks required to ensure a successful transition to your new site. We will upload the files to your server. Here we quickly test again to make sure that all files have been uploaded perfectly, and that the site continues to be fully operative. Our team will also train you to manage and update your site yourself using your new CMS. This marks the official launch of your site, as it is now viewable to the public.
Your new website is up and running! Now let us help support you and keep your online marketing initiatives going smoothly. We pride ourselves in being able to fix issues quickly and provide speedy turnaround on changes to existing websites without any charges for 2 months after deploying the site. After 2 months, we offer maintenance packages at reduced rates, based on how often you anticipate making changes or additions to your site.
