A successful project at Sabramedia always begins with a carefully laid plan. We create that plan during our “Project Evaluation” process, which each project goes through before any work begins. Our evaluation process is divided into four parts:
ResearchDuring the research process, our goal is to get to the heart of your project and gain as much of your organization’s perspective as possible. We spend time with you, asking questions and listening. As our research turns up problems or solutions, we run them by you and gather feedback.
RecommendationsAs the evaluation process moves forward, we will present you with our recommendations. Depending on the nature of the project, those recommendations may be regarding specific technology, content organization, marketing strategies, or even business processes. Our recommendations are always driven by the context and goals of the project and, wherever appropriate, we will present you with options along with the recommended choice.
Development ScopeWith the recommendations complete and a clear consensus on direction, we move forward and prepare a development scope. The scope is carefully and thoroughly detailed. In the case of a website design (or redesign), each page of the site is outlined, along with all the primary elements and their functionality. In the case of an application, the programming logic is detailed and the interfaces are outlined.
Timeline & EstimateAt the conclusion of the evaluation, we present you with a timeline and estimate for our team to implement the recommendations. The estimate is firm and nearly always falls within the ballpark we offer at the onset of the evaluation. A firm estimate means there are no surprises on price later on into the project, an important benefit of a carefully developed scope.
A careful evaluation, like the blueprints for a new building, takes time to develop and money to develop. Depending on the type of project and the nature of the evaluation, it will fit into one of two pricing models:
PremiumMost design, redesign, and new development projects fall into this category. Depending on the size and scale of the project, and giving consideration to the amount of time and urgency of the process, the cost will usually range between $2500 - $5000.
ComplimentaryIn cases where a project fits neatly into the research and scope of an already completed evaluation, we may offer to prepare an informal scope and estimate at no cost. This is often the case with smaller web design projects that fall into categories we’re already familiar with.
