No. We discuss with you your website requirements and then price accordingly and once you have placed an order for your website design with us, we work hard so that the outlined price quote is strictly adhered to.
During web development, clients sometimes change the scope of a project once underway. This usually relates to specific functionality. If the need to alter the price quote arises, we will communicate this to you before any extra work is started.
Yes, we absolutely like to meet with our clients, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we don’t do onsite meetings, but rather opt for virtual meetings using MS Teams, Zoom, Skype, Teamviewer, and Google Meets.
All projects are generally completed with contact via email, WhatsApp chats, and telephone. Websites are placed on our secure testing server for you to view the work in progress. This way we can have regular communication to ensure you are getting exactly what you expect from our Dev team.
We work with various technology platforms. We are specialists in .NET, PHP, JAVA, Python, HTML,
For small businesses, we prefer to work on open-source technologies because it is affordable. Propriety software development is expensive, especially with licensing.
As many as you like. From a search engine’s point of view – the more the better!
This will depend upon the amount of information you wish to be displayed on your website. If you have many products/services, then it may be advantageous to have a database incorporated into your website design.
If you require a simple, static informational type website with limited functionality, then we will build it using Bootstrap or HTML.
Our Business Analyst will discuss this in detail with you and if a database is advised we will explain in detail exactly how this will work.
The timescale of a website project is often dictated by the client. If you have a realistic deadline in mind we will make every effort to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client. For most projects, we try to work within the 4-6 week time frame.
Yes of course we will help you and it is for free! We have professional Business Analysts that are skilled in providing the solution you need. Let us know and we’ll be glad to help within 24 working hours.
A good question. Your website visitors will see some things differently depending on their browser, screen resolution settings, and their individual computer settings and toolbars. We design sites with cross-browser compatibility in mind. As technology alters, eventually all websites may need some updating.
All websites we build are fully responsive. This means they adjust to the screen size automatically when opened on your mobile device’s browser. With mobile apps development, we can also convert your website into a mobile app and publish them to the Google Playstore and iOS Store.
It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form – for example, we prefer images to be in jpeg, jpg, png. Written content in MS Word and downloadable documents in pdf.
We will also provide you instructions on how to upload the material via Dropbox or email using www.wetransfer.com
Yes – we are your one-stop-shop providing all your web services. We can register your domain name, host your website, set up emails, develop your website and maintain it.
No more – not knowing who to call if you have problems.
There are many different methods that can be used to update websites. The method you choose and the functionality we build into your website design are solely up to you and your budget restrictions.
If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes as and when then it is more cost-effective simply to ask us to carry out these changes for you. This is because the website was probably designed using code and if you lack the skills to do this yourself, you may damage your website.
Other methods which are frequently chosen are largely dependent upon how much data or information and pictures you have and how you store this information at present.
We can provide an online content management system where you can either update individual products/pages/services or particular sections of your website. e.g. company news.
Alternatively, we can provide functionality such that you can upload your entire product ranges to the website in one action using CSV, etc. We can also add databases if you wish.
Of course, Haimsa iT is always available to help you with any future additions and changes you would like. We will be glad to advise you which method will suit your needs.
WordPress Content Management Systems (CMS) is very easy to use and does have explanatory notes. We run through the administration screens with you when we design the site for you.
Yes, we do. All of our SMME packages include FREE basic search engine optimization (SEO).
Our websites are created with search engines in mind and the website design is compliant with search engine guidelines. It is a good idea for your website to be re-evaluated because over a period of time the search engines do alter their rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your website is kept up to date and complies with new rules etc.
