Five Critical Questions to Ask When Selecting a Web Design Company
Can the service provider clearly showcase prior work and project management experience?
Many web design companies show only small screens of websites in their portfolios without any links to the actual website and very little information if any about the work involved. Often times this makes it very difficult to evaluate the actual product as the focus is only on the limited size visual without any access to test the functionality and web technologies used on the final product. Hiding this much significant information may be a red flag. Request access to real samples and ask the company to provide real links to at least 10 - 20 finalized projects. Request to know what the company’s actual involvement and work load was. Often times a freelancer, for instance, might be involved with a small piece of production, but then ends up claiming a full credit of the final product. Interaria showcases over 45 website design and development projects in its company portfolio, most with real live web links to the actual final product. Each featured project is showcased with a case study that outlines our work involved in developing the website. We believe that clients have the right to access and evaluate past work.
Can the service provider program with modern Web code languages?
Does the service provider know how to program with HTML5, XML, AJAX, PHP and MySQL? If yes, what is the proof and prior experience? If not, what are the reasons that these code languages are not needed? Make sure that you will receive a final product that is developed and coded with the latest and most modern code languages. This guarantees an elegant and consistent user experience and a longer life line for your website. It also makes it easier to integrate content management systems, secure client login systems, and database driven custom Web applications to your website. Interaria is efficient in modern Web technologies, and for instance is one of the leading PHP/MySQL web application development agencies in Texas.
Can the service provider program Web applications required for dynamic and modern user experiences?
Today it is not necessarily enough that the service provider provides HTML code without any dynamic database integrations. Modern web sites often require several custom web applications such as customer registration and login systems, user account systems, custom searches to content, ability to save search results, and ability manage content with a database driven content management system. It is crucial to find real answers and knowledge on the service providers abilities and service offerings in order to make sure that the website development project can be completed successfully. Interaria has a strong side as a PHP/MySQL driven Web development agency. Our team codes efficiently in PHP/MySQL programming languages to create even the most demanding data base driven modern Web technology solutions.
Can the service provider offer a content management system and support it?
A modern web site development company should be able to offer at least a simple content management system. Downplaying the need for a content management system should be a warning sign (Typical downplay arguments: "very expensive to develop", "takes time to learn how to use", "our team can update your site for you"). Modern content management systems should be easy to use (with a short learning curve) and they should adapt to the website design without forcing it to any pre-existing template or structure. Interaria specializes in developing database driven Web application based custom content management systems. Our content management systems can be integrated to manage several other PHP/MySQL custom web applications such as client account systems or document management systems. We offer full support to all of PHP/MySQL code and functions.
Can the service provider offer mobile media solutions?
Don’t ignore the growing audience accessing Web via mobile devices. Request to know how the developed website would be viewable and interactive via mobile devices. For instance, at the moment Apple does not support the Flash player on iPhones and iPads. Your company might want to also consider a separate mobile version of its website designed specifically for iPhone users. Can the service provider integrate your web applications (database) to this version? Interaria offers modern mobile media development services as part of our web design and development projects.
