At ZDI, plain and simple, we’re experts at Web and mobile software development. We don’t say to boast; we say it to inform you in making the right choice of partner. Our UX and development team produces flexible applications of superior design and functional integrity, customizable, reliable, secure and easy to deploy and use. We employ the latest coding standards and development technologies, ensuring a powerful, engaging cross-platform product that gets the job done with style.
An application is only effective if its functions adhere to an overlying strategy. Our development team will narrow the focus of the application to align it perfectly with your stated goals, identify unnecessary, redundant or troublesome aspects of the project, and ensure that the application serves the needs of your business objectives, not the other way around.
A robust and dynamic database can serve multiple aspects for your business, regardless of industry, improving efficiency for both customers and employees. Developing a database can help scale down your operations, creating an easy to manage hub that manages multiple tasks: hosting account profiles, transferring/formatting data, organizing sales and automating notifications for easier operational management.
Every business is unique, and ZDI will custom tailor your e-commerce Web site application to fit the specific needs of your product, service and/or industry. Our shopping cart applications are built to be scalable, which means we create what you need when you need it. From built-in data analysis of shoppers’ habits and clicks, to highly sophisticated inventory management, to order and sales tracking — we’ll ensure your Web site performs exactly as you need it to.
Thanks to the global reach of today’s social networks, you can leverage this resource to spread your message around the world or just down the block. Whether your goals are to advertise your business, inform or entertain followers, or gather information, our social integration can help your business operate on a global scale.
The initial scope meeting is crucial to getting a project off on the right foot. Our clients get the chance to explain their goals, provide details and list requirements. We get to ask comprehensive questions that orient our thinking to ensure that all we establish from the start is road-mapped to your needs. A review of your existing data and materials will give us the information we need to determine the scale of the project.
We conduct an in-house analysis of your business, covering how the business is currently positioned in its markets, what are its primary sources of revenue, what areas of marketing are currently being utilized to the fullest, and which are underutilized. Areas of improvement are identified, and the Web site is then constructed accordingly, complete with sales funnels and strategic calls-to-action that convert user visits into sales.
The development team begins to lay down the foundation of the project by wire-framing the structure of the site, establishing content requirements and planning out the user experience (UX). While any given project can range from simple to complex, the goal is always to ensure the Web site is intuitive and easy to use.
The design team then gets to work creating a UX that is not only a beautiful, engaging interactive experience, but is constructed to complement and champion your brand. Tight collaboration is not only encouraged, but is crucial in creating a design that satisfies you while meeting market-driven needs. Content is fine-tuned to ensure that messaging remains on-point.
In an iterative approach to user interface design, rapid prototyping is the process of quickly mocking up an interactive simulation that looks and functions like the final product. This allows us to generate client feedback quickly, and helps us identify flaws in logic, while reducing the potential of oversight or error. The prototype is also an effective source of inspiration, sometimes serving to improve a product at an early stage of development.
The rules of any application dictate what data is important and what information needs to be collected, assessed, evaluated and utilized. The business logic behind what we create for your project is essential in creating a user experience that flows properly and functions successfully.
Building an application with no API is like building a house with no doors. If your app is going to interact with the outside world, it’s going to need an Application Programming Interface. Our team creates the back-end of the app first, ensuring that your application is flexible, stable and effective.
With the API and functionality of the app in place, the UI design is applied, turning the project into a cutting-edge, fully functioning application. All ZDI apps are built to run fast and reliably, utilizing all the latest coding standards. They function across all platforms and browsers, and are responsive to mobile and tablet devices.
Completing the design and coding of the app is not the end of the process. Before going live, the app undergoes a lengthy process of performance and quality testing to ensure the app works as planned. The app is checked for security issues, speed and ability to handle workload, cross-platform compatibility and search engine optimization. All bugs are identified and resolved before launch.
