We base our working methods on many years of industry experience from humble computer support technicians and engineers right up to principal consultant, project manager and even MD.
We believe our best practice, tried and test method helps our clients understand exactly what we will deliver, when, how and - for how much.
Six stage web site delivery process
We use a proven six stage process as follows:
- Understanding and agreeing requirements
- Provision of draft or prototype site graphic
- Confirmation of objectives
- Full development
- Implementation and testing
Essentially we judge how many days it will take one or more of our staff to deliver to requirements, and dependant on the technology used and the associated skills required, cost the project on the appropriate day-rate. All of our costings are clearly displayed in the initial formal quotation.
To get the ball rolling we take a 20% plus any 3rd party costs deposit. The rest is payable on completion/satisfaction.

When we quote, say 7 days of effort (man days), it can be that the actual amount of elapsed time may extend beyond this. Of course we will not be billing outside of the quoted days, however it is useful to understand that the elapsed time may be more and is due to a number of common factors such as:
- Waiting for domain names to go live
- Waiting for hosting servers to go live
- Waiting for site security certificates to be validated (SSL)
- Waiting for copy or images from the client or 3rd parties
All of our work is developed or re-developed from the ground up to be compliant with the latest standards - there may be some elements that simply will not be; but this our (and your) creative licence. Of course we will advise on all aspects ensuring you fully understand the pros and cons.
Most important in today's vastly more connected and accessible world. Again all of our sites are as accessible as possible according to latest published guidelines.
Once both parties are satisfied that the requirements have been met and we have received final payment - all rights transfer to the client. We also offer a thirty day warranty against all of our work.
