Great reasons to use us: We're not just another digital media agency
Finding the right company to create your new website or web application platform, or entrusting them to handle your online marketing is usually a choice that carries considerable gravitas. It’s not like buying a tangible commodity, so it usually comes down to trust. Can I trust the agency to deliver the project on time and on budget? Can I trust that the product will work and that it’ll be tested properly?
Most importantly, can I trust them to both effectively communicate, and just as importantly, to listen? If you’re like most clients, you’ll be interviewing several companies, they’ll each be promising the earth and they’ll all be offering a solution which is in budget. So how do you choose?
We’re a ‘full service’ creative and technical development company.This means that we’re a one-stop-shop, offering strategy, design, branding, front-end and back-end build; from smaller CMS integrations, through to enterprise-scale web application platforms and, if you choose, we’ll handle your digital marketing for you too.
We get it right from the outset, with proper planning.
We perform the right task at the right time. After we assess a project as a whole, we break it down into focused segments that target specific objectives. It sounds obvious, but proper planning really helps to keep a project on time and on budget. Understanding a client’s business and translating this into comprehensive design specifications ensures that any proposed technical solutions are both fit for purpose and highly cost effective.
With expertise across the entire application lifecycle spectrum, Vision IT Media always applies best practice to software projects using modern project management methodologies to ensure flexibility, participation and visibility to clients.
We include smartphone and tablet testing as standard.
Consumers these days use a plethora of devices to browse your site, from traditional desktop PCs to iPads and Android tablets, to Windows phones, Android phones, iPhones and Blackberrys, so it doesn’t make sense to optimise your site just for large screens. Already, about 10% of browsing happens on mobile devices and this is only going to increase, so we make sure your site works on a variety of devices as part of our standard service.
A focus on excellent account management and communication.
If there’s one thing more frustrating than having to deal with technical problems it’s not being able to get support when you need it and speak to somebody who ‘gets it’. Our industry is a service industry and we know that when somebody spots a bug in one of our products (hey, it happens to the best of us!) we need to have the right people and processes in place to make sure the problem can be reported with the minimum of fuss and is fixed in a timely manner. It’s about having knowledgeable people on hand when you need them, during the project and after launch.
We always choose rock solid technical solutions and reliable partners.
It’s important for us to work with technologies and partners we can rely on. It makes our lives easier and it means your website isn’t going to go down the minute you start your new ad campaign. We’re not tied to any particular technology but we tend to use PHP for back-end services, MySQL Server for data (because of its scalability) and we only ever use tier 1 hosting providers who offer 100% uptime guarantees.
We build websites and application platforms that sell.
Our digital marketing expertise comes into play very early on in any project. Building your website or app first and then thinking about marketing it is simply not tenable. SEO in particular is something that has to be part of the strategy from the planning stages, as does integration to social networks and plans for viral content. We plan your project from the very beginning, not just to work, but to fit with your marketing strategy, to perform well on search engines and to be easily sharable.
It’s all in the details.
This is something that’s hard to quantify, but we’re all very passionate about what we do. It’s just not in our nature to leave something 99% finished. If something’s not right, we make it right, because that's the way it should be.
