doForms product is a complex, highlight scalable mobile forms software solution. It allows customers to build custom forms in minutes.
However, their valuable product was overshadowed by a cluttered interface that was bogged down by too many unused web pages.
doForms wanted to generate more leads, garner more brand visibility in the market, and rank better for specific keywords in order to generate better organic traffic. In addition, the client aimed to improve on-site metrics, such as visitors, time on site, lower bounce rates, and more.
In order to improve the website’s aesthetics, organization and value,
Digital Silk decided to create a new website step-by-step.
By prioritizing tasks in a step-by-step process, we were able to improve
their website without disrupting sales and existing customers.
In addition, this approach allowed our team to measure success accurately and determine
which tactics caused the greatest improvement for doForms. This data continually informed our strategy.
Some of our deliverables included:
The company had to refresh the industry-specific marketing communications and
launched a new platform for 19 Industries made of over 200 webpages that to be localized in Europe.
The team then realized that every country encountered similar problems in the adoption process and took
very long to solve them or didn’t know where to find the necessary information to update on the pages.
The team aimed to streamline the adoption process by allocated dedicated strategists to each location.
Upwards of 12 digital strategists lead the project for each region in Europe – and those team members used
their experience to build guides and share know-how to reduce delivery time.
Examples of industries they located in the global locations include:
Application software utilizes a computer system to power functionalities that supersede the device’s capabilities.
It is one of the first forms of software development and is built for specific operating systems, including iOS, Android, Windows, or Linux. Common software programming languages used in application development include Java, VB.NET, C/C++, C#, and Python.
Application software comes in many forms, including mobile apps, desktop applications, and any other type of install-able piece of software designed for a specific function.
System software manages the behavior of computer hardware, helping the solution to run optimally.
System software solutions come in many forms, including operating systems, device drivers and utilities. Most software solutions that brands need aren’t necessarily system software solutions. Instead, they are software solutions that are compatible with specific system software.
As modern technology advances, software solutions have expanded beyond traditional operating systems and devices. Now, they encompass unique solutions, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, the Internet of Things, wearable devices, and other forms of software.
Emerging technology as software solutions can be implemented across many devices and operating systems, including mobile apps, websites, and any type of custom software solution.
Custom software solutions know no bounds. In fact, any business need can be powered by its own specific software, aimed at achieving tailored goals.
Frontend software developers create the interface of a website or solution that “customers” will see when they interact with it. This means that they are not creating dashboards, administration panels, or content management systems (CMS).
This software development segment pays special attention to accessibility – which essentially encapsulates user experience – and performance – meaning proper functionality, design and loading times.
Backend software developers build the administration panel, dashboard and content management system that corresponds with the frontend interface. They also connect the frontend with the backend, ensuring that any software settings, content and other information can easily be controlled through the backend.
Backend developers tend to code in languages such as .NET, PHP opensource framework, and JAVA.
In addition, depending on the complexity of a project, Digital Silk can provide full-stack developers or experts who can manage both frontend and backend programming.
As a kickoff to the software development process, we document any existing software, features and functionalities. Then, we collaborate with the client to determine which elements should remain in the revised solution, as well as the new features that should be created.
In addition, the Digital Silk team also conducts competitor research to understand the features competitors or finding success with and determine if they should be added to the new software solution that is being created.
Once the documentation and software plan are created and approved by the client, the Digital Silk team begins created wireframe designs – which are essentially blueprints of the software.
These wireframes are created in partnership with the digital strategist – who leads the project – and the information architect – who writes the specification documents outlining the complete list of features and functionalities that will be included in the new design.
Once the wireframes are approved, they move into traditional design, which adds colors, typography, imagery and other creative elements that will encompass the interface.
After the designs are approved, the project moves into development. In this stage of the software development life cycle, the graphic designs are transformed into lines of code, which transform the static images into dynamic platforms.
The development stage is typically the longest within the software cycle, but it is important to built software solutions properly the first time to ensure long-term success and minimal bugs. Digital Silk prides itself on moving software development swiftly but with complete accuracy.
Throughout the development process, the Digital Silk team tests the software for quality assurance, functionality and usability.
Testing software continuously throughout the software development life cycle is crucial to successful custom software projects. By testing software as soon as it enters development, the Digital Silk team is more likely to identify issues the moment they arise. This enables us to solve them before additional functionalities are built on top of the error.
Once the software is built, tested, and approved by the client, we will take it live.
However, deploying software is not the end of the road. Instead, the Digital Silk team will ensure the solution corresponds with user expectations, if applicable (often called User Acceptance Testing). In addition, we monitor the new software after it has been deployed and troubleshoot unforeseen issues that arise efficiently.
Finally, after the new software is live and working properly, Digital Silk also offers long-term maintenance services. These include cybersecurity, troubleshooting, operating system updates, feature and design improvement, and more.
By investing in software solution maintenance, brands will be able to ensure they have a state-of-the-art solution with great user experience that helps their business grow effectively.
