Development is the culmination of our work together throughout Discovery, Definition, and Design. Our development work often includes:
Technical Development and Integration
We have a wide range of experience implementing and evaluating different technologies, particularly content management and customer relationship systems. Our core expertise lies in open source development, utilizing PHP, and customizing Drupal, WordPress, and other platforms such as Salesforce and Actionkit.
Mobile Responsiveness and Accessibility
Your mission—your call-to-arms—will only ever reach those who have the ability to access it. At Echo&Co, we plan, design, and develop mobile responsive websites and applications so that you can reach your users wherever they are. We are also well versed with the Web Accessibility Initiative (www.w3.org) and Section 508 Compliance (www.section508.gov) and we take a common sense, best-practices, and standards based approach to browser support and accessibility.
Testing & Quality Assurance
Echo&Co employs a multi-stage quality assurance (QA) methodology designed to ensure what we build is thoroughly tested before initial release and launch. The first stage occurs during the development cycle as all code undergoes a formal validation and any identified issues are logged into our issue tracking system and remediated. All of our engagements include a period of post-launch QA and bug fixing to get you off to a great start.
Hosting, Hosting Management, and Security
Echo&Co offers full-service hosting to nonprofits and other organizations and individuals looking for stable, secure, scalable web hosting solutions. We use state-of-the-art systems to make sure that your website stays up and available, and we offer a range of options depending on your needs. But what really sets us apart is our commitment to hands on monitoring and support. We don’t just respond when a problem crops up. We proactively manage our hosting infrastructure to keep it running as smoothly as possible, and we take care of things like backups and redundancy so you can be sure that if something does happen your data will be safe. We have experienced systems administrators on call 24/7 in case of emergency, and always available during normal business hours for support requests and questions.
