Information collection​


Before the SI Media team can start working on the creative design and the production of an Internet website it must collect important information about the project. Many aspects of the project must be taken into account by our team and validated with the customer to fully understand the objectives and expectations of all the stakeholders involved in the web project.

In essence, it is during the information collection phase of the project that we answer the following

  • Who: targeted audience and user profile
  • What: the type of web site, modules, content
  • Where: Local, national or/and international audience
  • When: timeframe and deadline of the project
  • How: hosting parameters, preferred technologies
  • Why: website objectives, expectations, budget
Information collection
Planning and analysis

Planning and analysis​


Once all the information has been collected, the web project moves into the planning and analysis phase. The web project team will answer fundamental questions such as what are the needs of the website users and of its administrators or what navigation experience do we want to give to the website users. Functionalities are then prioritized to schedule the work to be done.

Each requirement is thoroughly analyzed to evaluate its impact on the overall development of the web project.

The deliverables related to the planning and analysis phase are: Scope of work, work plan, analysis document and cost estimates.

Prototypes and
mock-ups​


With an agreed upon work plan in hand our team can begin the production of the web application prototype or website mock-ups. This essential step aligns all the parties involved on the architecture and the organization of the web project.

It also serves to validate our team’s understanding of your expectations and requirements. The website users are always at the center of the design.

SEO Analysis

SEO Analysis


A good website is one that has a lot of visitors and that can easily be found through search engines. As such, it is important to define keywords for the website even before production and development can start.

Search Engine Optimization must be taken into account throughout the development process and it has an impact on all of the elements of your website, including the name of pages, the name of the images, URL and more.

We recommend working on SEO with customers early in the development process so that your website is optimized for search engines and has optimal online visibility.
