No successful website build is an accident. From the technology, to the process, to assembling the right team, every aspect of the effort requires planning, communication, and experience.
No matter how much thought and effort you put into website strategy, user experience, or design, if your site doesn’t function correctly, customers and prospects will stay away. And in the long run, a suboptimal website demands more effort from your own team and may be more difficult to update, change, or use.
So what should you be looking for in a web development partner? Obviously, development talent and experience are all-important. However, a true partner must also quickly identify business requirements, communicate clearly and transparently, and have a tried-and-tested process that’s robust from planning to QA.
At BFM, we provide the technical flexibility and development ingenuity to deliver quality solutions. From day one, the team building your website is involved in planning for your website. That means we hit the ground running and you get the build you need – not just a site that meets a set of specifications, but a true business solution.
We’ve been building websites for a very long time. From startups to large enterprises, and across all industries and markets, we’ve done almost everything under the sun in terms of website development.
Our ability to build dynamic, personalized user-centric experiences, as well as eCommerce websites with clear purchasing pathways, enables your brand to explore innovative opportunities to reach your audience, keep them engaged, and build brand loyalty. Naturally, nowadays, that includes mobile-responsive website development as a given.
Development is a critical part of any project team we assemble. At BFM, website development starts on day one of any project. Instead of bringing in our developers to code after all the key decisions have already been made, we ensure their expertise is part of key conversations from the beginning. This fully integrated team enables rapid decision making about direction and feasibility during planning and design phases.
While we take a technology-agnostic approach – we want to recommend the right solution, not the solution we happen to know best – our teams are constantly training and deepening their expertise on the platforms we build on, many of which are BFM partners, helping to ensure you always have access to cutting-edge expertise.
BFM is an award-winning web development company for a reason. Our team has mastered multiple development approaches across various platforms and technologies.
We’re more than happy to work in multiple ways, from Agile methodologies to Waterfall preplanned phases. However, we do find that the majority of our clients prefer a hybrid approach, where we build the MVP using a Waterfall methodology, and then add new features and improvements in sprints (Agile).
No matter how we build, our process is iterative and includes multiple phases of revisions and cross-disciplinary reviews to ensure the ultimate solution is as good as it can possibly be.
At BFM, we take pride in the quality of our work. In order to ensure we’re meeting our own high standards – as well as yours – we have a QA team dedicated to reviewing, testing, and providing actionable feedback on everything that we produce. Focusing on functionality, performance, reliability, and security, the QA team runs through over 100 check points and works with the rest of the development team to squash bugs and enhance the website.
