The mission of Addesso is to be the firm that organizations come to when
they demand high-quality, affordable technology solutions.
The Addesso process is extremely straightforward and, in conjunction with
our flexible staff, allows us to pass our efficiences on to our clients
by way of faster development cycles and lower costs.
The first step that we take is to confirm a full understanding of our
client's needs for a particular project so as to ensure that our final
deliverable hits the mark. We produce a clearly defined scope of work
and a project plan listing the key responsibilities of each party involved
along with their associated timeframes. Once everything is agreed upon,
then the real magic begins.
Our design and development team, the core of which have worked together
form over ten years, begin by producing flowcharts (to show the architecture
of the production) and storyboards (to show actual screen content and
function). These documents are thoroughly reviewed by our Quality Assurance
staff prior to being presented to our client for approval.
Once the design documents are approved, an interface design is created
to represent the look and feel that Addesso proposes be used for the production.
This interface design is a graphical representation of how your site (or
application) will appear and always defines such prominent features as
navigation, fonts, colors, imagery, and layout. At Addesso, we always
meet with our clients and walk them through the graphical site design,
noting any changes that are suggested, and explaining the thought behind
the placement and appearance of each item on screen, all with the goal
of gaining agreement to move forward with the design fully understood
by all parties involved.
The next step in our process is the actual production of the project.
Coordinated by our dedicated Project Managers, Addesso prides itself on
meeting all deadlines and exceeding all expectations. Our production team,
having been together for such a long time, are comfortable dealing with
each other and are open to internal critique. They can read each others
moves and make use of past experience to turn out high-quality applications
in timeframes only dreamt of by other firms. Once initial production has
commenced, our detail-oriented QA staff fully tests the application on
all target systems prior to presenting to our client for review.
Our tried and proven review process uses technology to streamline the
gathering of feedback and requested changes, and ensures that any concerns
are addressed prior to another round of QA. We then stage the production
for the client's final review.
Once final approval of the production is received, the application is
delivered to the client in a predetermined manner, such as posting the
site to the client's server, and any technical issues are handled by our
responsive and knowledgeable IT staff.
Follow-up discussions (internal to Addesso as well as with our client)
occur at the conclusion of each project so as to assess the effectiveness
of the end-result and to offer support options for moving forward.
