Web Development Project Description
The web development sample client has requested the creation of an eCommerce website which is designed to be attractive, engaging, informative, and to act as a mobile platform through which they may sell certain products. Initially the concept is going to be developed for the web, but will soon need to be migrated to a mobile app (as revenue streams build). Key concepts emphasized by client include; superior performance, user friendliness, modern look and feel, and user security.

Web Development Project Approach
We believe the suggested phased development approach described above is an important cost deferring mechanism that promotes early cash flow. By initially providing a website we can initiate an early cash flow module which, in turn, will provide funding for enhancements and porting the concept to a mobile app as needed.
Step one our our proposal plan is to evaluate and document project requirements and functional interactions based on the needs of stakeholders. Communication becomes a key element of understanding the desired functionality and building technical specifications. Because of the phased nature of the project distinct sub-phasing timelines will need to be outlined.
On acceptance of this project roadmap, we will advance to the development stage of the project using agile methodologies and standard programming and project techniques. Every two weeks a new version of the website will be produced for client review and acceptance. This structure helps to ensure continuous client feedback and communication through the project.
When development is complete a thorough testing cycle will occur to ensure the website is fully ready to be release. Upon completion of testing the website will be published for consumer usage.
Based on the availability of the internal team members of sample client, we feel that we can complete our initial planning phase within two weeks and the development within two months. This is based on our current understanding of the requirements and deliverables. There are many decisions to be made during a software development project that can affect the timeline and hours that are required for the project. We will advise you of the costs, benefits, and drawbacks for each option and allow you to make the ultimate decision.
Web Development Proposal Deliverables
The delivered website is designed to be comprehensive and provide a solution that will work well in the long-term, while also remaining economically efficient to the problems faced today.
Our ultimate deliverable (of our Proposal) goes beyond a well-tested production-ready website. We also provide project specification, clear design documents, technical documentation, and a testing / development environment so that development can easily continue beyond the scope of this project.
While our goal is a long-term relationship with the Web Development Client, as professionals, we will produce a structure that can be maintained or extended by anyone familiar with developing websites.
