Discovery is an essential part where we discuss with you your digital direction. We design layouts and create templates suitable for you to be able to see how things work. This is like framework to give you a functional and visual representation of work in progress.
We present to you a solution which is a creative and practical – which will enable you to make clearer decision about your digital strategy and how we can work together. We are forward thinking so build in options for growth at an early stage.
At this stage we do begin to refine some features such as menu’s, colour schemes, logo positions. Most decisions on the look, feel and functionality are made in this stage. Once this stage is complete we intend to have a clearly itemised design brief contract so we have a common understanding of what we intend to produce for you.
Projects go through a development, refining, testing and checking process. We have in place a seamless deploy to the internet process so from the design phase we can replicate the design to the internet.
Some services can be configured before we are live, whilst other functions and services are better suited to refining once the website is finalised and uploaded.
We recognise that each company or organisation have their own internal systems and can implement a structure which will integrate web technologies with back office systems to streamline your business processes.
Projects constantly evolve as technology, trends and opportunities arise. Opportunities present themselves through a constant development process. We design a system which we can update and evolve with you as your needs develop. We appreciate that you may have specific needs to be fulfilled and we can often work as a technical intemediatry to achieve your desired result.
We have specialist people we can enlist to advise on specialist areas such as SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), Social Media, PPC (Pay Per Click), and bespoke integration processes.
Each company or organisation has their own systems and processes, which change frequently. If required we can offer an appropriate ongoing update and continuity support plan, this is discussed in more detail at the consultation phase.
The systems we implement do lend themselves to be self-manageable, and with the appropriate training some tasks are achievable yourself such as adding blog information, pictures etc.
Support for more specialist configuration will be available. The website will evolve through functionality upgrades and security enhancements backing up data will be a necessary part of the ongoing update process.
Installing Magento for the very first time can be a daunting task. Steps must be taken before you even consider installing.

This blog takes a look at installing Magento in both a production live environment and also looks at installing Magento for test purposes.
