Our Process

Simplify. Design. Function. Interact

SIMPLIFY - WHERE WE MEET YOU

We discuss the project with you in detail, taking care to go over every aspect with a fine-toothed comb. Before we start, we want to make sure everything is covered so there are no surprises down the road.

We take the time needed to get to know how your business process works. Your website needs to work for your business, not against it. By integrating the website into your existing business models, you lessen the need to retrain staff to handle managing your website. By pinpointing your needs, this ensures we cover the full scope of the project and keeps us on target with your timelines.

DESIGN - WHERE ART MEETS SCIENCE

We take UI design to the next level, making sure your site looks as good as it functions. We design everything to fit into the project's goals the first time around. One of the benefits of having your design and coding teams sit side-by-side is that you no longer need to make design changes to fit proposed functionality and usability.

A3S strives to put together a comprehensive design package for you whether we're covering your branding, print, or purely digital needs. We have multiple designers on hand so you're not just stuck with one creative style. We hand select our creative team for their most important qualities, their ideas, and imagination.

FUNCTION - WHERE DESIGN MEETS TECHNOLOGY

The creativity doesn't stop at the design stage of our process. With today's continually evolving technologies and the multitude of tools available to programmers today, you want your technology department to meet the creative level of your graphic artists.

The way your site functions directly impacts the way your users experience your business. A poor user experience will prompt your users to exit your page. Whether they're using a desktop computer or a mobile device, we make sure your website's user experience translates across all media. We employ powerful techniques to make your user experience as fluid as possible.

Function also pertains to how we store and display your data from databases. From full-blown Content Management Systems, E-Commerce, or fully custom data management needs, we will be sure to cover all the bases to capture your data as well as display it in an easy-to-consume format.

INTERACT - WHERE USERS MEET YOU

The creativity doesn't stop here. Social media, smartphones, video and photo sharing, SEO, and other existing and emerging marketing methods are constantly changing the way users interact with online media. We stick with your site through testing and deployment to make sure your site not only reaches the right people, but also a quantity of the right people.

We use advanced analytical techniques to make sure your site is performing the best it can in your marketplace. From statistics to reports, we have the right tools to track your site and make sure it's performing on every level.

Interact also stands for our interaction with you, our client. After your site is live, we don't stop interacting with you or your website. We continually work to use the analytical data to streamline the user experience across your site. As your website and business grow, we still work with you to add new functionality to match your increasing needs and the needs of the ever-changing digital world.
