Development Process

Typical Process of a Web Development Project:

Step 1: Customers submit a request for quotation. Customers normally give us a background of their client, the goal of the website, and the database requirements of the website.

Step 2: Our team meets to discuss the costing, the issues, and the timetable to do the project. Afterwards, we submit our proposal to the client—often this is done within a day.

Step 3: Once the client approves the project, we immediately get our paperwork done and a down payment of 50% of the project cost is normally asked from the client. A web consultant is then assigned as coordinator to the client for the project.

Step 4: Once we start the project, the first phase would be developing the graphic elements of the site (the home page, the sub-page, the interface of the database). Once the design has been approved, then our team proceeds to encode the rest of the contents.

Step 5: For database applications, we would submit an architectural map of the database and the graphic interface of the program for client’s approval. Once approved, then we proceed to programming the database.

Step 6: Clients can then view the work in process online through a special area on our server.

Step 7: Testing and quality check are done by both our production team, and our web consultant, and the client.

Step 8: Once everything is approved, and the balance for the project is paid, we then upload the project to the client’s servers.
