Vision Internet approaches projects from a strategic point of view. Taking the time to understand your needs and the people you serve, we create customized solutions that are more effective than those offered by companies using a different approach.
Stage 1: The Vision Stage
To ensure that the final website reaches its maximum potential, we start with the vision. That is, what is the purpose of the website, who is it designed to serve, and how will we know when we are successful. The information gathered in this process then becomes the road map and serves as a guide for every other step in the process. It also ensures that we are creating the right solution for your most pressing needs.
Stage 2: The Concept Stage
We create specific plans or blueprints for realizing the vision. To do this, we develop the site infrastructure which includes a high-level navigation strategy, the categorization of pages according to the strategy, and the overall page layouts.
Stage 3: The Design Stage
Our creative team designs the graphics for the homepage and sub-level pages. Our creative ability and expertise will allow us to develop compelling graphic design to make your website look great while maintaining its usability. We work with you to establish a look and feel for the website that reflects your unique identity and is to your taste and preferences.
Stage 4: The Development Stage
This consists of setup, configuration, and customization of the content management system, development of any specific components or tools to be implemented within your project, and the execution of a design according to your approved specifications.
It is important to point out that, unlike our competitors, we customize the content management tool and can create custom applications to meet your specific needs. We do not believe that one-size fits all.
Stage 5: Quality Assurance, Documentation, and Training Stage
While quality assurance is an integral part of every stage, in this stage we do extensive testing to ensure bug-free operation and to ensure the website performs to your individual specifications.
We provide customized documentation that details exactly how to update and maintain YOUR website to include step-by-step instructions, plus examples and screen shots from your website.
Finally, we provide on site training for both your front line staff and technical administrators, thus giving your non-technical staff the skills and confidence to maintain the website.
Stage 6: The Launch Stage
We move the website to a production server, install all necessary software, make necessary configuration changes, and transfer the code and content. Again, we go through a final quality assurance process to ensure the site transferred correctly.
Post Launch Support
To ensure a smooth transition, we provide three months of free maintenance and support. During this time, our staff is available to answer questions, provide assistance, and fine-tune the website to make sure your website is reaching its maximum potential.
