Our Process

The Best Way to Be Successful is with a Plan

At ODI, we know that each project is a unique endeavor to both our client and to us. Each client has different needs. Each site has different goals. Therefore, we start each project with a blank canvas each and every time. Although ODI remains extremely flexible to meet the needs of our clients, we have established a process that allows us to quickly begin working on your projects. It is as follows:

  1. Plan
    Every project has to start somewhere and we start with doing research, analysis and information architecture.  We do all of this by listening to what you.  It is vitally important that we firmly grasp what you are trying to achieve (i.e. your goals).  Once we have listened to you and documented your goals, we will make wireframes (simple line drawings outlining each part of your project) from your vision.  We have learned long ago that without a thorough planning process, the rest of the project could have disappointments for our clients.
  2. Design
    With the initial requirements and planning done, we take our wireframes and make graphic design mockups.  This allows us to give you a better preview our how we have translated your vision for your project.  Our designers will build a user interface that best suits your needs for the project.  Prototyping and our graphic mockups are the core for this phase.
  3. Build
    Now that we have the design finished, we’re ready to dig in and get to building the finished piece.  Our developers stay current in standards-based development guidelines and use that to develop your project.  We can also implement a Content Management System (CMS) that will help bring the most out of your site allowing a higher rate of dynamic content and interaction for you and your customers.
  4. Manage
    After we have finished your project and launch your web site, our job still isn’t done.  We can help develop a plan to monitor how your visitors see and use your web site.  We can also help draw visitors to your site through the use of a thorough Interactive Marketing plan.
