Our work starts the moment you decide to entrust us with the task of developing your website. Like busy bees we get buzzing, studying and familiarizing ourselves with your business and its requirements, because we believe doing a background study is very important to deliver excellent, satisfying results. Using our PMS (Project Management System), our designers, developers and managers indulge in extensive Q&A session among them and also with you, so that the purpose, intention and vision of the project are understood by one and all involved in the project.
This first step of development process sets the foundation of the rest of the phases, thus we encourage you and our team to clear every single query regarding the project, as even a minor misunderstanding could lead to problems later on.
Only when our developer and UI team have got their queries answered satisfactorily do we put a check on this step and move on to the next phase.
To execute every plan, be it in warfare or website development, a blueprint is required, so that the thoughts are put on paper for everyone to see and understand. Wire frames are just that, a rough layout created to assign placement of each aspect of the website. This document describes where things like business logo, menu tabs, graphics etc, would be placed and how these elements would behave during user interaction. Having this caricature is extremely important because this pictorial depiction is one of the things that let different developing teams, mainly designers and coders coordinate.
The website wireframe is made available to clients for their perusal and feedback through our ‘demo URL’. And after you give us a go ahead, we advance onto the next stage of the cycle.
Once the outline is created, it’s time for our UI designers to start filling in the details and give definition to the caricature, that is, wireframe. In this step the UI designers design the visuals and graphics that will be seen on the website.
We are a big fan of Flat UI design, which will be evident from the layout of our own website. But we specialize in other types of design techniques as well. If you have an idea, we’ll make it happen through our expert designing skills. And even when you are having trouble coming up with a workable design idea, then too we’ll be there to bust out unique, innovative layouts designs, just for you. And keep on improving upon it till you are satisfied with the result.
And since you can’t be present at our offices, which is where we develop the incredible website designs, we provide you with Softdepth hosted ‘demo URL’, from where you can check out the demo version of your website at this stage.
At this stage the graphics, developed by the UI designers, come alive. Our expert UX developers employ their wizardry and with the ease of magic, make buttons clickable, visuals animated and icons tappable. They are the ones that make sure your website is adaptable across all devices and screen resolution by using responsive HTML. It is also from this stage it’s taken care that your website is speed optimized and does not take too long to open.
Once again you are sent with the updated Softdepth hosted ‘demo URL’ of the website, so that you can give feedback and suggest any alterations.
When users visit your site and click tabs or interact with the front end of the website, that aspect is built by UX developers.Butthe information they provide through feedback forms or login details itis stored with the site backend. This technological aspect of the website is developed by our expert web developers. Their job is to write lengthy codes to provide an easy, manageable backend for your website. A website is fully functional only when the web developers are able to match up the impressive front end of the website with a simple and effective backend using tools such as Joomla, Magneto, Wordpress, etc. based on PHP coding.
The complete result up till this stage is shared with you using Softdepth server hosted ‘demo URL’, to suggest any modification or changes and approval.
Unit and module testing takes place at every phase starting from initial development stage. But an overall product testing is also important to test for any bugs or coding errors. Thus, we use the popular V-model to carry out the testing process at every stage. Our experienced testers run the website across all devices from desktop to smart phones and on all major browsers, ranging from ubiquitous Google Chrome to Firefox, and IE8+ versions, etc. Apart from this, it’s made sure that the codes used for the website development are W3C validated, the content on the site is SEO friendly and the overall website is speed optimized.
Softdepth follows a stringent testing process. Nothing misses our QA’s eyes. Sometimes, things work out smoothly in the first try. We give a hoot and a hi5 to each other when that happens. But sometimes, it takes a few testing processes before all the pieces fall in the right place. When that happens, we give an even bigger hoot and pat on the back to each other.
After the final product testing, your shiny new website is delivered. As per your request, we, either, transfer all the files, which you can upload by yourself on your hosted server, or we upload the files on your hosted server and make the web site live for you.
Softdepth offers a 30 day free support after the completion of the project. Apart from that, you also get video tutorials made by our experts to explain how you can manage the frontend of the website through backend.
We understand that making changes on the website and keeping it up to date could be tedious for you, so we take care of it and tackle all the hassle.
