At Evolve Systems, we implement a 5 Step Process into our projects to ensure clarity and open communication between our staff and clients. Putting a system in place like this has both long term and short term benefits for your business that are important to consider.
With Process Comes Web Development Efficiency
Having a process in place at your business ensures that projects stay on track and that your team and client are up to date through the project. It is also helpful to clients because it allows them to see an end point for their project and gives them the steps the team is taking to get the work done. Also, if there is information that the client needs to provide, a process gives them a timeline to work with as well.
Achieve More Profitability
Going along the same thread as efficiency, is profitability. If you are able to complete projects faster without have to go back and make multiple changes – you will be more profitable. You will be able to continue moving forward to new projects, rather than staying in the same place. At Evolve Systems, we have seen an increase in efficiency and profitability and we chalk this up to following our 5 Step Process.
But our process is not only helpful in measuring our profitability. Timelines and deliverables are essential for web project launches that are profitable for our clients use of time and resources as well.
Planning for the Future
In the long term, having some sort of systematic order in place is important for the longevity of your business. Having successful steps in place for future employees will allow them to continue to move the business forward in the future, even when the people who originally implemented them have left the company.
Clients love seeing the process diagram and understanding which phase their web project is in. As web development is a dance or collaboration of our clients efforts and ours, a robust and consistent process is a win-win for both.
Having implemented our 5 Step Process has provided us at Evolve Systems with both these long term and short term benefits and while a different system may work in your business, having one in place that works is the most important part.
