UX is shorthand for User Experience. It's the term we use to describe how someone interacts with your website or mobile app. User Experience Design, is the process we go through to ensure people enjoy using your product and understand it intuitively, rather than getting lost and not knowing how and where to do things.
People will enjoy using your product and come back to it again if it has a good user experience. If it has a bad user experience, they may get frustrated and decide not to bother next time.
That depends on a number of factors. In order to estimate the time it will take to design and build your website we will look things like:
Every website project is different, therefore every estimate is treated separately.
Like with websites, the cost of an app will depend on a number factors, including:
In order to start estimating costs we first go through a requirements gathering process to discuss the project details and ensure we understand everything correctly. There is no one size fits all approach to costing app development projects. Each project is unique.
As every website or app project is different, this is a hard question to answer but there are some commonalities we’ve noticed over the years. The process of designing and building a website goes through some typical stages: Project discovery, User experience design, Wireframing & UI design, Front end development, Back end development, Content creation, User acceptance testing & Deployment.
Even our smallest projects go through these same steps and you can imagine there are a number of those where you (as the client) need to get involved to review the work done so far and make decisions along the way. So, when estimating the time it will take to go from project start to having your website live, you need to factor in time for reviewing decision making.
A good guide to start with might be (from project start to live):
PIM stands for Product Information Management. A PIM system is a piece of software or web application that stores your product data. It's a database that's geared towards your products and associated information.
You typically use a PIM to separate your product data from other data and applications such as an ecommerce store. By doing this you have more control over the data and can integrate with multiple systems more easily.
In the past PIM has been more for larger organisations with big product datasets. In recent years though it's become much more accessible and relevant to SME’s too.
