The MET Design Web Solutions Process
MET Design Potentional Deliverables For a Web Solutions Project
- We will meet with you to discuss of the history, current status and goals of the company, in general.
- Review and analysis of existing web site and print materials.
- Discuss the goals of the current project.
- MET Design submits a proposal and the client reviews it.
- MET Design revises the proposal according to the client's comments and resubmits it.
- Once the client approves MET Design for the project, an agreement is signed off by both parties and the first payment of the project is delivered.
- MET Design begins the project by requesting all content for the project from the client, in digital format.
- In conjunction with the client, MET Design will define the site architecture, which is reviewed by the client, until it is finally approved.
- MET Design then presents the client one rough comp of the homepage, through a URL viewable through a web browser.
- MET Design refines the layout based on the number of versions/revisions included in the proposal.
- With the homepage approved, the design of the main template begins.
- Once the client approves the design of all pages, the HTML coding begins and is refined based on the number of versions/revisions included in the proposal.
- When HTML coding is completed, development work is started. Depending on the type of development work required, it can start earlier in the process.
- After the development work is completed and integrated, MET Design will conduct quality assurance (QA) to make sure that the site functions in all anticipated situations.
- Once all "bugs" are eliminated, the client will approve the web site's functionality on a test server.
- After the client approves the site on the test server, it is transferred to the final server and tested again. If a URL transfer is required, it occurs at this point.
- Congratulations! Your site is launched!
