This service includes custom web development, web and mobile app development, website refreshes with more than 5 pages, and any other multifaceted development project unless otherwise noted.
To ensure the best possible outcome for all parties involved, we provide a method of web development from start to finish that aims to establish solid expectations, deliverables, scope, and budget.
We will provide a 45 minute recorded consultation at no cost. If our consultation exceeds 45 minutes, we will begin billing at $125/hr; a 60 minute consultation will cost $31.25.
During this consultation the project details and scope will be discussed with an account manager. We will gather details, address initial concerns, ask questions, and take notes. At the end of our consultation, we will suggest a recorded follow up to discuss conception with our project manager and any additional team as needed.
The Conception phase is very important to the success of your development project. During this phase we need to fully understand the project being developed. Every feature, the entire scope of the project. We need to understand exactly what you want so that we can deliver set time expectations. Any surprises or unforeseen hurdles that come later during the discovery phase will change the time estimates. Depending on the complexity of the development project, this phase may require multiple meetings. We will have a lot of questions, including questions for potential issues that you may not have considered on your own. We may also have some recommendations of our own during this phase based on our past development experiences.
During the discovery phase we will take all of our notes and recordings that have been gathered during the conception phase, and create documentation that includes an overview of the project, a detailed breakdown of each feature, wireframes of each page/route/user-flow/function, a product development roadmap, total project scope, and development timeline. This document may also include a breakdown of the technical structure and requirements of the project, including any third party dependencies, technology stack, hosting infrastructure requirements, database design, API endpoints, and file structure. The overview document will include references gathered during the conception phase. This documentation will be our road map for creating and scheduling tasks for the entire project.
Once scope and discovery documentation has been completed and agreed on, we can begin development. Tasks will be created based on our discovery documentation and each task will have detailed time tracking. It is possible that during development we may run into situations that require us to ask questions for clarification, or need to discuss an issue found that was missed during discovery, these questions will be passed back to the client for clarification - the quicker we can get responses the faster we can work through the issue(s) and continue development. We may periodically need to have a meeting to discuss the current stage of development to receive feedback on our progress.
