It all begins with your website
Gone are the days of online brochures. Today’s websites are content hubs—magnets where visitors are captured, identified, tracked, nurtured and converted into customers. Like a high-performance automobile, a great website is a delicate balance of form and function.
If your current website is not delivering the goods, then let’s have a conversation. AscendWare will create a visually stunning website that effectively communicates your message, generates leads and delivers results!
A Solid Process is Critical to Success
Something that sets AscendWare apart from other web development and marketing services companies is our methodical, process-oriented approach and project management, derived from our 60+ combined years in the IT services business.
Our website design and build process consists of several separate stages, which all move forward in parallel when possible.
1. Creative Design and Layout
The skill set for creating stunningly gorgeous designs and brilliant user-interfaces is very different from that of a technical web developer. Our web designers are creative experts at visual design, branding and usability. Everything begins with form in consideration of function for the best of both worlds.
Our design team will provide you with up to 3 design concepts for your consideration. We will then meet and discuss the concepts for greater clarity and choose one for further development. Once the completed design is exactly to your liking (including all layouts / views) the next process will begin.
2. Build and Implementation
AscendWare’s web development team is highly trained and experienced in multiple disciplines, including WordPress and other platforms, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and a multitude of front-end and back-end technologies.
Our web developers work with our creative department to ensure a perfect marriage of form and function and are aware of each other’s quality requirements.
3. Content Creation
There is a saying that “Content is King,” and that is because the content of your website is most important. The content is what will win over your visitors and persuade them to fill out a form and become a lead for your business.
AscendWare is pleased to work with the content development company of your choice. Don’t have one? No problem, we work with some great companies and are glad to handle this for you.
Regardless of how your content is sourced, rest assured, we’ll make sure your website communicates the perfect message for your audience and business.
4. Quality Assurance and Testing
Before your website can be released for production, one of our senior developers rigorously examines and tests the build and functionality of your new website. If something does not meet our standards it is proactively identified and fixed, even if there is no visible consequence to end-users. Only after your website meets all of AscendWare’s high standards of quality is it ready for delivery to you.
5. Final Delivery and Migration
Upon AscendWare quality assurance and your final approval, your website will be delivered by your desired methods whether it be full backup and migration script or live migration to your hosting account and domain—just let us know.
6. Training and Documentation
If you will be maintaining and administering your website internally, our preferred method of documenting your new website is to record several short video clips showing and explaining how to accomplish routine administrative tasks. You will be emailed links to download your videos / documentation when ready.
All of AscendWare’s websites come with 30 days of support for technical issues, questions and minor changes. Simply open a support ticket and we’ll get it done. Our goal is to far surpass your expectations and deliver the best possible solution and experience.
