The discovery period is a time where we get a better understanding of the project at hand. We typically ask for a project requirements document, get access to review code, design files, and/or setup a meeting to discuss details that will help with the project estimate. The discovery period, if under an hour, is on the house but if we need to spend more time than that, we will start off the project with a paid discovery. We typically do paid discoveries when we review code or put together a project requirements document.
After we get a better understanding of the project, we put together a Statement of Work based off the project requirements. Our typical turnaround for estimates is 24 hours. To give an idea, typical services for a web application estimate can include: web development, project management, quality assurance and deployment.
03. Kickoff Meeting
After the estimate phase, we have an in-depth overview meeting of the project we’re going to build. In this step, we go over our strategy and timelines as well as finalize any changes before development begins.
This is the step where all the magic happens, where we take your idea and turn it into reality. During this phase, we are heads down in code and will keep you updated on our progress as we hit milestones. If this is an ongoing, monthly project, we keep you up to date with standup meetings, a project board on Asana, and monthly hourly breakdown reports.
Testing the end product is something that other companies may overlook but is vitally important to the success of anything that is developed. This phase is solely dedicated to quality assurance and testing that the product is running smooth. Our QA engineering team fine combs what we built down to the pixels, on all required devices.
06. Client Review
After fully building out and testing the product but before going live, we send a demo of the entire build for review. This phase is for making any minor changes or fixing any other bugs that may present themselves.
After approval, we move the build from the development phase to the production phase. Meaning, the site/app goes live! As with any good application or website, continued development and upkeep is vital and we’re here for continued support as needed.
