Web development process:
A1 Net Solutions follows industry standard methodology to ensure quality and on time delivery of your web system. The following is an outline of the general web development process we maintain.
Development Process Overview
We follow six steps in the process of developing the dream web solution for you:
Recognizing the target audience and defining the true purpose of the web site to ensure client return on investment. By the end of this phase both QC and client should also possess a clear understanding of the scope of the project. What features and functionalities should the final solution possess etc.
Creating design prototype. This design usually reflects color themes, imagery, typography; and ideas about the site structure and navigation. The design also illustrates a good deal about the site map, which is basically a high-level diagram of the overall structure of a site.
Enhancing the navigation, layout, and flow of the selected design according to client inputs and usability testing performed by our own specialists. During this phase the design is iteratively refined, detailed, and informally tested. Aspects such as the precise typeface of labels and body text, the exact sizes and appearances of images, and color schemes and palettes are determined. At most cases every single page of the site is not designed, they are split into classes of page (such as home page, second level page, etc).
Developing the full web solution, complete with code, contents and images in our local server. Entire code, graphics, database (if any) and HTML are thoroughly tested, both individually and as whole unit to ensure the web site is working as flawlessly as possible and it is loading at optimum speed.
- Bug and usability testing:
Testing the system in a production environment and check if all the functionality are working as they should. Testing for user friendliness. Client involvement is most intense in this phase who constantly provides feedback on all the features to ensure that the system matches his/her expectations.
Implementing the web site in the client hosting server and configuring it.
A1 Net Solutions is reputed for intensive client support and client interactions. As soon as we start the development process, we assign you a ticket in our Project Tracking System(PTS), where you can log in any time and follow the progress of your system. A ticket is assigned for every project we work on for you. We post updates and status of your project in the PTS almost everyday.
You can post your reviews and inputs in the ticket system based on your evaluation from the live testing area. QC then takes necessary actions and post the updates for you to check. The system is super easy to use and you can follow up everything in one place. No need to send back and forth or keep track of hundreds of emails. If you have multiple projects with us, you can log on to the system using single user id and password and track the progress of all projects in one place.
If necessary, besides the ticket system, we can also contact you by Phone and of course, email.
Maintenance and Evaluation :
Maintenance and Evaluation consist of supporting the existing site, as well as gathering and analyzing metrics of success. Maintenance includes such things as adding new content, making small usability improvements, fixing simple bugs, answering customer email, checking that all links point to valid pages, and making backups of the entire web site. By evaluation, we mean collecting measurements on how the web site is used, analyzing and summarizing the metrics collected. Metrices measure the overall health of a web site. Without metrics, it is impossible to tell which aspects of a web site are working and which are not. QC can provide maintenance and Evaluation services on hourly payment basis.
