Does the client need a Custom, Professional or Enterprise Solution? If needed, when can we schedule our Discovery Phase?
We work closely with the client to develop project blueprints in a format easily understood by designers, developers, and programmers so a proposal can be created. Typically this represents 10% of the total project cost.
Upon completion of this phase, both parties will understand the resources required to build the solution. Cost estimates & timeframes accompany the proposal.
- Discovery Document (see sample page to right)
A signed Professional Services Agreement to begin work outlined in the proposal.
Post-Discovery (if phase was required), we must further define the details of the project. Much of the Discovery phase is about the WHAT, whereas much of the Definition phase is about the HOW.
These project blueprints become the guide & strategy outline for all remaining phases.
- Web Strategy
- Sitemap 2.0 & Design Wireframes (see sample on right)
- Asset Inventory
- Backoffice Requirements
- Spec Documents
- Application Simulation
A verbal signoff on the Design Wireframes so designers can begin their creative magic.
The ultimate goal of the Design phase is to accurately depict form and function so that a client can envision how the two work together for their user base before beginning Development.
We further portray more detailed functionality, showcase a deeper level of user experience, and intricately storyboard any interactive components. Your project begins to take life with the addition of your company's branding, photography & content!
- Design Review of overall concept & key sections of the site
A verbal signoff on the design so the dev team can begin building from previously-met objectives.
The Development phase represents the largest phase of the project.
This intricate part of our process requires the collaboration of all Caxiam Group team members. Communication is key and teamwork paramount as every element, from graphics to content to functionality to business objectives, come together to form a cohesive web presence.
