Our Process

Discovery

Discovery

Key to ensuring that we deliver the right solution is understanding your requirements. Rather than build an exhaustive set of requirements and assume they won't change, our project discoveries focus on compiling user journeys and stories, as well as gaining an understanding of all integration points. This feeds directly into our agile project methodology.

Design / UX

Design / UX

Great user experiences are at the heart of all the work we do. Following project discovery our design team work to build wireframes and high-fidelity concepts in an iterative process involving you, the client. This stage allows the natural creativity of our designers to shine, and our regular show-and-tell sessions ensure you're always influencing the creative direction of any project.

Implementation

Implementation

After a handover in which designers and developers discuss the visual identity and interactions for the project, our world-class development team sets to work bringing your ideas to life. Using short development cycles with regular client feedback sessions ensures that by the end of the build process there are no surprises for our clients.

User Acceptance Testing

User Acceptance Testing

Getting the system in the hands of the final users and learning from their feedback is key to delivering the best solutions. While we aim to give our clients access to as much of the system as possible throughout implementation, UAT is our chance to refine the product prior to the public unveiling.

Cutover / Go-live

Cutover / Go-live

The excitement around the project has been building for weeks and finally the day arrives. A detailed cut-over plan has been built to ensure that expert team members enable a smooth transition to the new solution, and Cantarus team members from design, development and infrastructure orchestrate the switch. Our many years of experience ensure that your visitors don't encountered unexpected interruptions in service, and instead, gain access to the new environment painlessly.
