We believe that web design is a broad term that encompasses a great deal more than whether a website looks good or not. Website design includes the structure of the sitemap, ensuring that all pages are easy to find through a logical structure. The layout of each page – ensuring that key information is presented clearly and that the page isn’t overcrowded – is as important as the final design aspects of colours and fonts.
At Hampshire IT Solutions, we’ve established a tried and tested web design process to ensure that every website we produce delivers on its core aim. This begins with research on the target market and clarification of the key goals of the site. We then produce a rough design vision to show our concept for the site, which acts as a basis for discussion and feedback. This vision is then developed into a full website design that is shown to the customer, so feedback can be collated, revisions made, and the design then signed-off.
We take great pride when coding our websites to ensure that they are fully responsive working on all devices and browsers. With smartphone and tablet usage at almost 60% of all website views, customers want and expect an easy to use responsive experience as standard. The Hampshire IT Solutions team creates fast loading optimised mobile-friendly sites viewers can enjoy on multiple mobile operating systems and platforms. We have spent a long time building our responsive framework and are constantly updating as new devices are released to market.
We decided from day 1 of our agency that providing customers with the ability to edit their own websites is crucial. After a lot of market research, we decided on using WordPress as our CMS platform. Since then our team has developed a fully custom version of WordPress with powerful features, user guides and next-generation website security.
Our team has developed a custom editor that allows you to build advanced page layouts with no coding knowledge needed! We can provide a sample of this system before if required. Full training will also be given after website implementation at no cost.
At Hampshire IT Solutions we know that a website is all about bringing the best design and software together to create something fantastic and easy to use. We also understand how important your brand is to your company. We find creative ways to enhance your brand and display it at its best making it stand out from competitors. After all, a website should be an extension of your existing brand.
We build your website with the utmost care and attention to detail, so it’s fully functional for you, for your customers and all of the leading search engines. We use our SEO skills to increase your website rank increasing viewers and sales. We use various techniques such as keywords, Meta Tags, Titles and Descriptions to your existing website improving its rank in search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo.
We perform all updates/changes at your request whether it is new pictures, projects or text changes we will get your website updated usually within 48 hours. This service is covered by our yearly maintenance charge. We also perform behind the scene updates on a monthly basis updating our core framework to ensure your website is performing at its best.
We don’t like waiting around so why should your customers when they are viewing your website? Our cloud-based servers are 60% quicker than standard website servers.
