Standards and Accessibility
We pride ourselves on quality, which means strict adherence to modern web standards and careful attention to best practices that are, unfortunately, not yet commonplace in the website development industry. The movement towards robust Web Standards has produced quantifiable savings, return on investment, and value. How does our approach pay off?
1. Future-Proof Your Investment
The Web is a truly universal platform, and will continue to be supported and maintained long after other platforms have fallen by the wayside. New systems in the future will use the Web as the foundation. When you build using established Web standards, you are using those parts of the web most likely to survive and thrive in the future. You can be sure that your creation will continue to be supported by multiple vendors and devices far into the future. Building on Web standards now protects your investment in the present and continue to reap dividends in the future.
2. More Efficient Management
Designing across browsers and managing documents efficiently has been the bane of the Web designer/developers existence. Following standards and practices allows for the creation of a workflow that saves not only time, but wear and tear on Web designers and developers working with these difficult challenges. Using a Web standards workflow, time, money and the quality of life for the most valuable of resources: the people on your teams can help improve this ongoing challenge in the standards environment.
3. Search Engine Optimization
4. Universal Access
Whether designing for a PDA or a visually-impaired individual, the concept of Universal Access (which includes numerous modalities such as phones, print, web site all coming from the same document as well as access for those with specific disabilities) is far more easily achieved using the techniques advocated by Web standards, making a document significantly more style-able and scriptable for those multiple reasons.
As sites grow, and they have a tendency to do so, a great deal of effort can be saved by having an existing standards workflow and corporate/organizational design guide. This empowers people to scale, refresh and even redesign sites with greater ease than in non-standard design, in which each page "carries" its design with it rather than being controlled by external style sheets. By separating document, presentation and interaction behavior on the technical side, a very significant amount of time, money and frustration can be avoided as a site grows.
6. Improved User Experience
The lighter-weight files associated with standards-based design mean an improved experience for the user. In order to be effective, sites have to be easy to use and allow the user to get to their goal quickly. A clean infrastructure and the smaller files typically resulting from a Web standards workflow can have a significant impact on the load time and responsiveness of a site, keeping your users happy customers.
