Planning requires a thorough understanding of user needs to ensure that the project can be delivered successfully. The outcome of this stage is a detailed project plan including information architecture and conceptual design.
Design, Develop & Test
At this stage the actual structure of the website is developed. Starting with the design phase, there is a lot of consultation with the client and continuous feedback until a final design is agreed. Once the design is finalized, the actual website is then built and tested.
The testing phase is a cycle itself and this is where we iron out programming and other minor functionality issues to ensure smooth running of your website and an engaging customer experience. Once the testing is done we can move on to the next phase of launching the website.
Operate, maintain and evaluate
At this stage, the website is live and maintained, with regular upgrades and any modifications necessary. This stage involves keeping everything up to date and regularly reporting on site functionality, to ensure that the website is a success and widely accessible. One ingredient of a successful website is continuous assessment of its performance. This evaluation period may highlight additional user requirements which were not previously considered or minor tweaks and functions which may be required to improve the website even further or add more features, and so at this stage some further design and development may be required.
Cydezines can help to improve and refocus your existing site based on your requirements or add further functionality and services to your current website.
