Your website represents your brand. And a site that’s slow, unreliable, or hard to use is a website that customers and prospects will avoid. Internal teams also suffer when small website changes are agonizingly slow, and big changes are out of the question.
Yet starting a web development project feels daunting, so businesses often feel stuck with the status quo, risking missed opportunities and competitive disadvantage.
With over 17 years of experience developing upon the top CMS platforms and a well-honed project management process, Blue Fountain Media builds high-performing sites across a wide range of industries. We’ve overcome all kinds of challenges for our clients, helping achieve some exceptional results in the process.
If you’re not a technology person, it’s not easy to choose a technology partner to develop your website. Fortunately, there are qualities you can look for without reviewing a single line of code.
The newest and shiniest solution isn’t always the most appropriate. Taking an interest in your business isn’t just polite – it’s the only way for your agency to make sure the solution fits your true requirements.
Your website agency must manage time and budget as well as the work quality. BFM has the tools, experience, and skills to keep the project on the rails and push the boundaries of possibility.
A combination of breadth and depth is important. Technology platforms have different strengths and capabilities, and platform-specific expertise is highly valuable. But if your agency only knows one platform, guess what they’re going to recommend for you?
No two projects are the same, but our process has served us and our clients well across hundreds of website builds.
We begin by assessing your current environment and technology stack, speaking to your key stakeholders and tech leads. Our goal is to understand your business needs, and learn how these inform your technology requirements. If we’re also designing your website, technical discovery is part of an integrated discovery and strategy process.
An optimal technology architecture requires a skillful balancing of factors – current and future needs, workflows, integrations, regulatory requirements, in-house technical resources and, of course, budget – to arrive at the right solution.
Our experienced technology team acts as your strategic partners – helping you rebuild your tech stack or finding a solution that plays nicely with the tools you have.
We find the majority of our clients prefer a hybrid development approach, where we build the MVP using a Waterfall methodology, and then add new features and improvements in Agile sprints, but we can and do work in other ways.
Every build is assigned a dedicated technical Project Manager, who will support your equally dedicated Account Director in efficiently managing work quality, time, and budget.
