There will be times when a web development
project goes awry. More often than not, the fault lies not
with the technical expertise of the involved parties, but
rather with the communication between all the people attached
to said project. A dependable company will not only have the
experienced staff, but also a proven method of handling the
development of a website from its inception to the final
rollout. Without a specific timetable and task list, you would
go into a project blindfolded with no sense of direction.
There is no simple, straightforward line that goes
from beginning to end. Construction of a fully operable,
commercial website will run into many obstacles before the
goal is reached. Without careful navigation, a multitude of
factors can go wrong, and the resulting increase on overhead
or dispute between provider and client can negate the entire
process. We here at InfoMagic Business Systems have taken careful
steps in coming up with a plan that promotes an orderly way of
developing your website, along with clear communication
between all the channels to ensure that we are building your
website, not ours.
Our plan consists of five
sessions, each with its own distinct
During this session, we consult with you on
the scope and timeframe of the project, getting explicit
instructions down to the smallest detail. Agreement between
our party and yours on what the function, necessities, and
content of the website is the most important factor. We want
to know what direction we are headed in, and that you fully
understand what we are about to do for your company. All the
necessary resources and requirements for the entire project
will be discussed and agreed upon here as well. Most of the
communication will be managed by e-mails.
- Come up with timetable for the length of the project
- Estimation of the cost of developing the website.
- Summary of your business needs and priorities, and how
the website will satisfy them.
- Initial draft of the project plan.
At this time, all prices, timeframe, and
resources needed to develop your website should be ironed out
and agreed upon by both parties. The technical staff will
start to work on thinking up the conceptual designs and
templates that will later become the foundation upon which we
build your website. You will be given general ideas of how we
envision your website to turn out via reports and briefs.
- Revised project plan with more details of the process
and procedures written in
- Brief on the technical aspects of creating the website
- Brief on the design layout on your website
- Outline of the content to appear on the pages of your
Every masterpiece begins with an idea, and
every website starts with a spark of creativity from our
graphic design staff. To find the look that will best
illustrate your company, we envision the translation of your
company products and values into a layout and design.
Everything, from icons, to the color scheme, will be
cautiously thought out and tested to assure relevance,
compatibility, and quality. Short term goals such as pleasing
visuals and dynamic content are taken to heart, but so are
long term goals such as updating complexity and loading time
for the website. We want you to approve our prototype before
we move one step further in the developmental process.
- Graphic interface templates and samples
- Flow chart of the overall construction of your website,
from the Home page to the Feedback page.
- Content matrix- proposed content for each specific page
of your site.
- Testing/Prototype website uploaded on our server for
your private review and feedback.
Once the prototype is 100% approved by our
client, we then begin the arduous and painstakingly meticulous
process of the actual web development. What were merely rough
sketches in the previous stage will be turned into
fully-realized solutions through both our graphics and
programming staff. All the technology we have at our disposal
will be implemented into the creation of the final product.
From the programming, all the scripting, database development,
to the final testing, your website is expertly constructed and
seamlessly put together. The spark of creativity will now be
transformed to reality.
- Coding of the website
- Applications integration
- Final design and layout formation
- Finished website
Once we reach this final destination, you
are presented with your finished website, and we go over the
functionality and features within it. We answer any questions
you have about operating the website, and can make any
last-minute changes or additions at your request. Depending on
your plans, we can move forward into a website maintenance
program for the website, or simply hand it over to your

|# Skills and Technology|
Merely navigating the Web is an arduous task
in itself. Programming and developing a business website for
navigation on the Internet is ten times more difficult. It
takes technological know-how, strong teamwork, and exact
attention to detail in order to put together a professional
commercial website. A well-made automobile, or any product for
that matter, is never produced by accident. It is the direct
result of a single person or team with vision, drive, and the
means to achieve the goal. The same can be said of the
websites created by InfoMagic Business Systems.
We do not
depend on any type of luck or "accident" to come up with our
websites. Everything is meticulously planned in advance and
the team carefully selected to give balance and focus to the
project. All staff members of InfoMagic Business Systems are among
