Our Recent Project- Help Mould Me

Help Mould Me is a social group formed by a group of young men and women envisioned to assist the less privileged in  society to reach their potential. Formed on the 21st October 2017, it formation was championed by Doreen Mould (a member) whose motivation stems from past experiences as a less privilege child when growing up. After interactions with some allies on her plans, they happily decided to support her course leading to the birth of this prestigious social group. Tonem Multitech provided a website for them based on their needs. The help mould team needed something simple but consistent for their prospects and visitors.

The website is responsive and loads faster although most of the photos used where heavy in size. Tonem Multitech team ensured that the images were optimized to make the website load faster. Check out the website here : https://www.helpmouldme.org/

Important Steps for Planning Your Web Design

Failing to plan is planning to fail. Designing a website without a plan is similar to designing an automobile without an engine. Poor planning is a disaster waiting to happen for all web design companies, and by the time remedial efforts are put in place, it’s too late! Why do website designs fail? There are plenty of possible reasons, including:

  • Poor technical skills of developers, testers, and designers.
  • Lack of scope and absence of a requirements document which is generally the backbone of most projects.
  • A half-baked design strategy for the website. A lot of companies engaged in website design services do not have a clear vision of the design. This usually results in a poorly executed website and lack of usability.
  • Creating a website without following coding best practices and source code versioning. This results in uncontrolled code with zero development accountability.
  • Quality assurance that lacks quality. Often, testers do not perform thorough functionality and regression testing before going live. The lack of a proper test plan also contributes to the downfall of the project.

There is no standard template or a “one glove fits all” strategy for successfully planning a web design project. The responsibility lies on web design companies to balance design best practices along with other usability factors, and deliver a successful project. The steps to planning a web design project are:

  • PlanningThis is arguably the most important phase. Here you will assess what needs to be included, and most importantly, what need not be. A project charter, requirements analysis document, server configuration, and software and resource allocation are the stepping stones to this phase.
  • DesignThis stage revolves around transforming your requirements into reality. In order to have a sound design strategy in place, you must create a wireframe of the site, a mock-up, and ensure compliance with W3C standards, to name a few. A compelling design can make any organization involved in website design services stand out from the crowd.
  • DevelopmentThis phase is where core programming and source code management takes place. In this phase, web design companies have a development framework in place along with usability and content design.
  • Testing and DeliveryAt this point, a full functional and regression testing of the website will be performed. The scope of testing is, but not limited to, cross-browser compatibility testing, code validation, and third party API and widget integration.
  • RolloutNow that the website is ready for public consumption, identify parts that deserve a second look. It also doesn’t hurt to move the site to a test server and perform a trial service. Although most web design companies follow this step religiously, they often fail to plug the gaps when it comes to broken links, out of date and erroneous content, and backward compatibility of browsers.
  • Post-rolloutThis is the business end of the planning lifecycle where customer interaction takes place. Hand off all necessary artifacts to the client, for example, documentation, source files, test plans, etc. Do not burn bridges with incomplete transition.

This six-pointer guide is by no means perfect. It is not a primer for readymade success. Planning a near perfect web design project could significantly alter your company’s bottom line on an upward curve. The credibility and relationships with your core customer and partner network will hinge greatly on how well planned and optimized your website is.

Why your local business needs a website

The world has been changing since creation. In previous centuries, the change has been very slow and adaptability to change by various businesses took a while. In the 21st Century we can’t say such. In the history of the world, change has become so fast and most businesses are really finding it difficult to meet the rapid changes to business and the way people do things.

With the introduction of smartphones, tablets and other sophisticated gadgets, life has become quite easy for some people but extremely difficult for the ‘BBC’ (Born Before Computers) group in our society. Instant messaging and quick access to information has really changed the way businesses are being conducted.

Businesses which spend a month trying to draft new policies and guidelines for their operations continue to make adjustments to them due to the rapid growth of technology.

It is very interesting to know that people find it easier searching for products and services online before they actually visit the location physically. The use of search engines to find a product or a service around my local vicinity has made it quite easier for me.

Typing things like “A mechanic shop in Pedu” or “The price of filling a gas in Accra” has become some of the common things you see people type in search engines these days. Businesses which do not have a website are actually loosing a chunk of their customers to those who do.
