Website Design And Development

We prefer to use the word "portal" instead of "website" not just because it is more of a buzz word but because it does a better job of conveying our approach to a company's presence on the web.

A "portal" should be a gateway to a company's interactions with the outside world including its communication, interaction, marketing, sales and management.

PortalGrup approaches the concept of portal design and management from a business perspective and begins with thoroughly analyzing a company's business practices, competitors, strategies and plans.

The portals we have design and manage stand as testimonies to the approach of helping our customers enhance their ROI and brand awareness while getting ahead of their competitors.

“In building the web portals suited to your company’s needs and in line with your image and mission; we follow the below roadmap to make sure that our software projects don’t fall into the common pitfalls of project managements experienced in the software industry."

  • Process Mapping helps us map the inner procedures of a company which will have direct or indirect effects on the functionality and the looks of the portal
  • Segmentation is used to understand the customer segments our customer will be targeting through its portal.
  • Business Requirement Plan lists out all the functions, modules and pages of the desired portal for the final approval of the customer
  • Wireframing presents our customers with the outlines of how the workflows related to their portal will materialize vis-à-vis the design elements on their pages
  • Look and Feel phase phase enables us to get an insight on the kind of image our customers want their site to portray
  • Design takes input from all of the above and builds a skeleton of the portal in three different layers:
    • Graphic Design
    • Database Design
    • Class Design
  • Coding starts after all the above mentioned phases are approved by the customer
  • Scenario Testing is the next step after all the coding is completed. The whole platform is put through in-depth tests of how the users of this portal will utilize this portal; allowing us and our customer to pinpoint any potential gaps in our model of thinking and coding
  • Web Stress Testing is done by exposing the site to a high traffic volume and making sure there are no problems under stress
  • Deployment and Babysitting period culminates the project with real life deployment of code. Our software team stays on top of the situation to make sure that the portal is functioning as intended under real life workloads and usage scenarios
