THE AT TECHNICAL APPROACH
to a new online presence
We begin by actively listening to your needs, goals, and vision for the website. Understanding your requirements and target audience helps us tailor the design and functionality accordingly.
Our experienced design team creates wireframes and mockups to visualise the structure, layout, and overall user experience of the website. We focus on creating an intuitive and visually appealing design that aligns with your brand identity.
Using the design as a foundation, we develop interactive prototypes that simulate the website's core design and functionality. This allows you to navigate through the user interface and test various features.
We value your feedback and input. After reviewing the prototype, we listen attentively to your thoughts and suggestions. This feedback helps us refine the design and developments to address any concerns or modifications you may have.
Based on the feedback received, we revise the design and make necessary adjustments. This iterative process ensures that the website aligns closely with your expectations and goals.
Prototype (Some more)
We create an updated prototype incorporating the revisions. This enables you to visualise the changes and ensures that we are moving in the right direction.
Once the design and functionality meet your satisfaction, we move on to the deployment phase. Our skilled development team deploys the website to your desired hosting provider.
Review the SEO and ensure that the site conforms to all the latest Search Engine Optimisation best practises and share with you reports to demonstrate how well the website is rating.
Training on how to manage the website, adding new pages or blogs, updating content updating plugins and the main content management system, and
Configure analytics so that the website traffic can be activily monitored.
Support any changes for 2 months following the sign off of the website as an added safety net ensuring a smooth transition.
