Building your site or application correctly puts money directly back in your pockets. Maintainable code is crucial for future success and our process guarantees the best work. And, our quality works in other amazing ways – from speeding up your site to raising your rank on Google.
Communication is key to any successful project. That’s why, here at The Studio, we custom-tailor our communication style directly to your needs. If you prefer in-house meetings, on-site collaborations, or simply texting, we make it work.
Our content management systems put us on the map years ago and we’ve done nothing but improve since then. We develop industry-best CMS tools that save you incredible amounts of administrative time. Your website should be working for you instead of you having to work on it.
Have an impossible deadline? Luckily, we have a team that has been built from the ground-up to handle that exact situation. Even if you don’t need your project done in a hurry, our processes ensure that you get your work done on budget and on time.
Successfully developing your website or application is mission-critical to your continued business growth and success. We take time to carefully plan, develop, and execute our work leading to the cost-saving results that keep our clients coming back time and time again.
For us, it's the small details that make the world of difference. Whether it's reducing server load time to increase your conversion rate on your e-commerce store or building a complex content management system to save you administrative time, we do it right time and time again.
The first step in any project is to discover your needs. We'll set up a time to talk either in-person, or if you'd prefer, over the phone, Skype, or any other tool you'd like. During the call, we'll move through the discovery process - about a one-hour meeting to fully grasp your needs.
During this, we'll define goals, objectives, milestones, and stakeholders. After a thorough understanding of what you need, we'll draw up an estimate and quote for you. Our turnaround time on estimates is approximately one business day; however, larger projects may require more time.
Objectives are the key to any successful project. By using goal-oriented development and planning, it optimizes our time, our workflow, and your budget. By setting goals with metrics, you’re able to measure results and analyze your ROI.
During this step, we refine lofty ideas and mold them into tangible, achievable goal sets with measurable metrics. Once these are defined, the success point of the project should be self-evident, allowing us to move forward into the development phase.
Here, we turn your project into reality. From sketching a concept through a final product, we take immense care in what we do. During this portion of the project, you'll get weekly check-ins from us with status updates and, if applicable, screenshots or links to a development site.
You will work with us on revisions and review over the course of this section. At The Studio, we find it mission-critical to keep our clients involved in the project.
After executing the plan, we set aside a block of time to ensure the quality of our product. We take the time to thoroughly test and benchmark our work to be able to promise the quality of product that we do. We will also work with you to do a final check of the site and implement any final changes you have.
Time and time again, we've watched others in our industry ignore this critical piece of the project. Surely, you'd have an editor go over the final draft of your novel you've written. Why not the application or website you're building?
This is probably the most exciting part of the project - taking everything live. During the launch process of the project, we'll tie up any loose ends in the code and triple check that everything is working for you.
Finally, we'll deliver you documentation and video screencasts of how to use the administrative section of your site or application and provide plentiful training so that you feel comfortable using the tools you're provided.
The sooner you get in touch with us, the better off it will be. We can assist you in prioritizing what's crucial to your success and progress through the project from there. With four in-house web developers, we can turn your project around more quickly than just about anybody else.
Absolutely! However, it's always best to get in touch with us during the design phase so that we can assist in discovering any implementation hiccups that may occur along the way.
That's cool - we communicate in normal, everyday terms to ensure you understand what we're talking about. We keep the jargon to a minimum and aren't afraid to go the extra mile to ensure you have a complete understanding of what we're developing.
When we launch our sites, we ensure that we take the time to not only train you on using the content management system, but we also provide screencast videos that show you exactly how to change just about everything on your site. That said, we love catching up with our clients. We're only just a phone call away!
In the case of that occurring, we jump right on it. We take these types of issues incredibly seriously - which is why we offer an industry-leading 120 day support period after the project is launched. This includes answering questions about the content management system, fixing bugs, and training for anything related to our work.
You bet. Chances are that if you've seen it on the web, we've built something similar. Plus, we're not shy about working with different technologies, integrations, and frameworks. We have yet to encounter a project where we've said, "No way, you're crazy."
I appreciated the excellent customer service at Studio Ace of Spades. It was great to always deal with the same person. Jon treated any question — and the project as a whole — with respect. He returned phone calls promptly and met deadlines. The result was an attractive site that matched our needs and garnered many compliments.
The team at SAOS always puts me at ease when working on web projects. They are calm, cool, and collected and have a way of translating digital jargon in a way that I can understand it and communicate it back to my client.
I’ve worked with the SAOS team since 2012. They're professionals that truly understand web technologies, always advising along the way, so I know what my investment is going to accomplish. Whether it be while I was at an agency or for the occasional freelance project, I’ve turned to the SAOS team for many projects - design, websites, mobile app and digital strategy - they’ve done it all for me, and I have valued their guidance and knowledge.
