At Two Kings, we begin our collaboration with an informal and non-binding introductory conversation. This is the moment when we map out your vision and objectives for your website in concrete terms. What do you want to achieve? Who do you want to reach? We listen carefully and advise you on the technical and creative possibilities that match your needs. After this conversation, you will receive from us a clear quotation and a structured project proposal that will form the basis for our work. No surprises, just a transparent plan of action.
The preliminary research phase is where we lay the foundation for a high-performing website. We start with a thorough analysis of the current situation: what works, what could be better, and how does your current online presence align with your business goals? Then, we define together the desired functionality of your new website, always with the end goal in mind. With this information, we develop system specifications that serve as a blueprint for the construction. We also look at how to seamlessly integrate the new site with existing systems, whether it's CRM, e-commerce, or data management. This preliminary research ensures that we build not just a website that looks good, but one that also strategically contributes to the success of your business.
In the design phase, we switch to a structured project approach. Using project management tools like Trello, we set up a transparent project organization, complete with timelines and milestones, to keep the progress of the project clear and measurable. The development of the customer journey is central; we meticulously map the end-user's experience, from the first visit to the desired action. Based on this, we develop a functional design that defines the functionalities and interactions within the website. We then proceed to create wireframes, where we determine the layout of the pages in consultation with you. This collaborative process ensures that the final designs are not only innovative and user-friendly but also perfectly align with your vision and objectives.
Integration with external systems is a crucial step. We ensure that your website communicates perfectly with required CRM systems or other APIs, allowing for a smooth and uninterrupted flow of data. This technical cohesion enables you to work more efficiently and offers your visitors a seamless experience. It's a process where precision and technical expertise are paramount, with the end goal being a stable, fast, and secure website.
System Setup and Completion
After the development, we focus on system setup. This starts with the creation of a Git repository for version control and a DTAP (Development, Testing, Acceptance, Production) pipeline for structured deployment. This ensures a smooth transition from development to going live. The web server and DNS are meticulously configured to ensure that the site is fast and reliable for users around the world.
Next, the website undergoes a thorough testing phase to ensure that everything functions flawlessly from a technical standpoint. At the same time, you as the client have the opportunity to edit and expand the content, so that the site is filled with relevant and engaging information at launch.
After the testing phase, we move to the acceptance phase, where you as the client have the opportunity to review and approve the final product. Once the website meets all requirements, we proceed to completion and offer training to the editors who will manage the site. This training ensures that your team can confidently take control, with the knowledge to keep the site up-to-date and to facilitate its growth.
As soon as your website goes live, the SLA (Service Level Agreement) phase typically begins. This part of our service focuses on continuity and reliability. Any bugs are addressed and resolved quickly and efficiently. You get direct lines to contacts - often the developers you already know - so you always know who to turn to with questions or for updates.
We provide a ticketing system for reporting issues and, if necessary, offer uptime monitoring to ensure your website's availability. Our team is ready to perform the necessary maintenance and management to keep the website running smoothly.
Additionally, our service includes the possibility of light further development. We look to the future together: what new features could add value, how can the website grow with your organization, and what technological developments can we implement? If desired, we assist with the planning for subsequent phases and future project development. Our SLA is more than a maintenance contract - it's a promise of ongoing support and innovation.
Is your situation unique? Do you have specific wishes, or are you already working with a fixed visual designer, or do you have your own management department? No problem. At Two Kings, we understand that each collaboration can be different, and flexibility is one of our strongest points. Contact us and explain what you need. Together, we will find a way of working that suits your organization. We are ready to make a tailored proposal, where your preferences and our expertise come together for the best result.
