Custom web design and web development

We focus on security, compliance, maintainability, SEO and performance.

No two projects are equal and thus no two projects flow or play out according to a cookie-cutter model. However, we must have a general method to approach a given development project with, initially. Our Seven-Step Web Development methodology has proved itself over the years and is common practice amongst many successful web development firms.

  • Determining the full and in-depth scope of the project

Step 2: Strategic Planning

  • Conception of the main goals of the web application and of the users' pathways, including the "preferred customer pathways"
  • Conception of the web application's flow
