The best web project outcomes are those based on solid plans. Understanding complex business operations and how those translate to eCommerce website requirements is a specialty service we provide at here at Curata. We’ve run online businesses ourselves, so we know the game. We know the questions to ask and that traps to avoid.
In Curata’s experience, the best results are achieved for projects where the business requirements are known in detail prior to proposing a solution, committing to a quote or commencing the website project.
Web and particularly eCommerce solutions can vary wildly dependent on client expectations, required functionality and integrations with other systems. We believe that a thorough requirements gathering process is essential for the success of any eCommerce website project, which can be very complex given the scope of tasks and systems covered in a typical project.
Workshops take the form of a half or full day face to face round table meeting. Where possible we’ll come to your place of business, although Skype meetings are possible where traveling is not.
Often times, we find that our clients are not fully aware of the options or potential features that can assist their business to sell online. Our consultancy based approach delivers the best possible results for your business, with minimal project risk. We feel a comprehensive requirements gathering process is critical to the success of any web project.
The deliverable after this workshop will be the Functional Specification document which is the “user guide” to the site build. This is a comprehensive document that details exactly what we plan to implement on your website. Clients are required to review and sign-off this document prior to commencing the project.
Undertaking a requirements gathering process:
- Provides an opportunity for all parties to work together to agree on the best possible solution.
- Provides an opportunity to specify a base build as well as options that can be added on, subject to client budget.
- Reduces risk to the client’s business operations through accurate project scheduling and delivery.
