The following is a brief overview of the process that we follow for developing a Magento website.
For developing any Magento website, we begin with understanding the website requirements from the client. Before beginning with the actual design and development of the website, it’s very important to acquire an in-depth insight into the kind of online store that the client has envisioned, from the store layout to the store features. During our discussions regarding requirements with the client, we also draw upon our own expertise to provide helpful suggestions when the client needs the same.
When the requirements are clear, we begin with the identification of key milestones and possible risks for the project. While the identification of milestones helps us properly gauge the project progress throughout the development process, the identification of any possible risks allows us to be proactive towards managing the risks. This is also the time when we plan out the various project related tasks that will need to be completed during the course of project development.
Next, we start working on the front-end of the website, which comprises of the user interface and user experience. This is a critical stage, since the feel and look of the Magento e-commerce website would directly translate into the brand value of the business. Hence, we rely on extensive target market research and analysis to create a design that immediately attracts the prospective website customers. While designing the look and navigation of the website, we keep collaborating with the client to keep refining the UI and UX until the best version has been achieved. After a couple of design iterations, once the design is completed and finalized, we start working on the website coding part. During the coding phase, we make sure that the website is built such that it can be perfectly viewed across various browsers and devices.
After the development is complete, we carry out a comprehensive QA and testing strategy to ensure that the website meets the highest standards of quality, robustness, security, and performance. Once the website is tested for quality, we may even do some integration work, if the client requires so. For instance, if client already has an ERP or CRM system that they want to integrate with their Magento website, then now is the time when we work on that.
Now, this designed, developed, and thoroughly tested website is ready to go live and be presented to its target users. We also offer support and maintenance services, so we can help you keep your website up-to-date.
