Development Approach

1. Requirements Gathering and Understanding Needs

This is about making sure we understand exactly what it is your company wants from its website, and it works best if we do it face-to-face. On the back of these meetings, our team will put together a proposal. This serves as both the basis of the agreement between the two companies and the blueprint for the future of the site.

2. Visual Concept and Pleasing on the Eye

Once the proposal has been agreed, the next step is to establish the look and feel of the site. The designer will use the information already gathered to produce clean and eye-catching designs that express the ethos of your company in clear visual language. You will be offered more than one variant, and choose the one you like best.

3. Site Architecture and Planning

This is about thinking through the structure of the site from the user’s point of view to produce a definitive site map. The aim should be to minimize the number of clicks before any given user arrives at what they are looking for.

4. Production and Development

Once the visual concept and site architecture are in place, we can begin producing the graphical templates. These designs are then turned into an HTML wire-frame. That's a site you can click around, but which doesn't do anything more than that. The next step in the process is the development of the functioning website. It is at this point that the more complex programming is done. The work will be carried out on one of our development servers and successive iterations will be available for you to test and review.

5. Quality Assurance and Testing

All code that MacSyn produces is rigorously tested and checked to ensure that it meets the industry standards for best practice. A testing process is in place and includes the use of test cases, quality assurance testing, bug tracking and user acceptance testing (which the client is required to complete). Once the site has passed our rigorous QA process and our client then certified to go live and be viewable to the public.

6. On Going Maintenance and Support

We believe that the ongoing support of any site or product we build is just as important as the initial development. We ensure that the same highly skilled developers involved in the build of the site are involved in the support of it.
