Isn’t Time For a Professional Website — Implemented by Custom WordPress Development Experts?
The Pleiades Development team have over a decade of experience designing and developing WordPress websites for businesses just like yours. When it comes to WordPress, we’ve seen and done it all.
Your business is unique, and our custom web development services are tailored to integrate your business expertise, processes, and strategic goals into the structure of your site. Pleiades Services builds websites that help you grow and manage your business while strengthening your brand and engaging your clients. Our web developers are highly skilled experts who bring the code and all the technical magic that makes your site perform as promised. We approach website development as a three-step process and work with your team to carefully define the purpose and the scope of the project during Discovery.
Step One: Discovery
The product of the Pleiades Discovery Process includes a sitemap that identifies the content, structure, and interactivity of your primary pages, along with a site prototype and a detailed scope of work document describing the various site features and how they work together to reach your stated goals.
Throughout the Discovery Process, our Pleiades developers work with you to identify a specific timeline, budget, and clear, SMART goals. With these goals, we help set realistic expectations between budget, timeline, and scope of work. When desired requirements exceed budget or available time, we have the experience to propose alternatives to satisfy your specifications.
The Pleiades Discover Process also includes an audit of your existing content and identifies any new text, image and other media needed to meet your stated project goals. This is a critical step because, in order to functioned as planned, your site must be created with optimized content that guides your user experience to the desired outcome.
Step Two: Design
The design phase is all about the look and feel of the proposed site. The Pleiades development team does not “do” design, but we are proud to have nurtured long-standing strategic partnerships with some of the best designers in the wider WordPress Community.
Using the client approved prototype and the other Discovery documentation, our designer partners will produce wireframes to demonstrate how the various pages of the site will look on all devices. Our clients review the completed design and see a visual representation of the major ideas and concepts we discussed during the Discovery process. They can see the completed site design and how their site will appear and function. Our clients find the design phase most exciting because they begin to see how their ideas take shape.
Step Three: Development
Even though the majority of our web projects require custom coding, Pleiades Services has developed a standardized web development process that ensures our all our clients’ needs are met. The approved design and functionality described in the scope of work provides the blueprint and checklist for our developers.
After we complete your website, we review the site and the scope of work with you, making any modifications needed to ensure the project is done exactly to the specifications documented in the Statement of Work (SoW).
Our Discovery Process helps to ensure that we identify everything you need before incurring the cost of design and development, however, sometimes unexpected requirements come up after the design or development phases have begun. To minimize the impact on our customers, we generally confer with our client where we revise the budget, timeline, and scope of work and issue project change orders accordingly.
These three stages typically take about seven weeks for many projects, but larger, more complex web projects can take longer.
