Form

The average visitor to a website leaves within the first 10 seconds unless they have a compelling reason to stay. We create stunning website designs that draw people in so they have time to fall in love with your brand. If it's not clean and easy on the eyes, it's not going to keep people's attention. Our UI/UX team custom builds the interface according to the web design best practice, so the process becomes less about chance and more about science. We give great attention to establishing a well-planned structure on which a website is built on. Beneath the visual elements at the front end, each of our sites has a sound internal configuration. It makes them user-friendly, robust and easy to maintain.

Function

If you can retain your visitors for more than 30 seconds, chances are they will browse for a matter of minutes. It’s all about getting over that first hurdle. Our websites are intuitive, navigation-friendly and set up to give your visitors full control. The information needs to be laid out in such a way that the user can scan and skim the content and get a sense of what your business is about. What does the company do? How are they different and better than others? Credentials? Experience? Ideally, visitors will pick up on this info without even realising it. If the design is conversion-friendly, content optimised, and easy-to-navigate, visitors will stay for longer and likely get in touch with you.

How does a properly designed website engage your customers?

Stunning Graphics

“A picture is worth a thousand words” - so are videos and animations. First impressions and visuals are everything when it comes to web design. Rather than just describing what you do, our web designers use visual contents to make your site nice to look at. Our subtle use of animation and transition effects gives life to your site, making it more engaging for your visitors without overwhelming them.

Intuitive UI

A stunning looking site will impress your visitors and keep them browsing a little longer, but it’s all pointless with usability. User experience is the top priority for every site we design. If your website is confusing to visitors, you’re fighting an uphill battle. Our extensive research on user interaction ensures that your site always presents a fluid, intuitive experience for each and every user. The motto of any great web interface is - “Don’t make the user think” and our design and website development methodology reflects that.

The challenge was having a back end in WebCommander that can cope with the excess stock inventory numbers - which it has thanks to the WebAlive team coming together and developing something for us, but more important was the syncing process of the WebCommander into our MYOB accounting package, they developed it so that we have a mirror of whatever’s in WebCommander appears in MYOB – flawless!
