Accessibility and Browser Compatibility

As part of the design & development process we usually target and test against the following suite of website browsers:

  • Internet Explorer (IE9 & IE10)
  • FireFox
  • Safari
  • Chrome
  • iOS (Safari) & Android

There are no costs associated with changes that are required as a result of browser issues on all browsers mentioned above. However if you require your website to be accessible via Internet Explorer 8 or earlier, additional browser compatability charges apply.

Content & Visual Design

The design/structure of your website will focus on providing your target audience with relevant information in a visually attractive manner. The design of your existing logo/branding, along with content supplied and examples of preferred website layouts, will heavily guide the direction of the websites design.

Mailing List Subscription / E-Newsletters

41st Degree Software utilises Campaign Monitor for E-Newsletter functionality and reliable delivery. Campaign Monitor provides a userfriendly user interface for composing and authoring E-Newsletters, managing emails subscriptions and tracking email delivery analytics. A monthly or yearly fee is charged dependant on usage and number of subscribers.

'Responsive' - Mobile Device Friendly

The design will be mobile/portable device friendly to take into account the huge increase in mobile devices being used to navigate the web. The website will be easily viewable across iOS and Android devices and their web browsers. Our designs are based on "responsive web” design principals and as such will work across a broad range of devices available. Initially we design the website in standard desktop ratio and once approved we implement the responsive styling for tablet and smartphone.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) & Analytics

41st Degree Software uses Google Analytics to capture and report on statistical information relating to site usage and visitor patterns.

With even a very basic understanding of Google Analytics, users are able to clearly see:

  • Visitor numbers, per year, month, day & hour.
  • How many of the visitors are returning.
  • How long visitors are staying on the site.
  • Which countries and areas the visitors are coming from
  • Which pages within the websites are the most popular

With a more advanced knowledge of Google Analytics, reports of much greater depth and detail can be produced. Google Analytics can also be combined with Google Ad-Words so the results of any online marketing campaign can be viewed in great detail.

Once Google Analytics is in place, 41st Degree Software can utilise the information it captures to optimise the website for search engines by looking at the “search terms” visitors are already using to find your site and identifying areas where the website may be missing from search results.

Static Website Development

Static Websites do not include administrator access via a CMS (content management system). All updates will be completed by 41st Degree Software on your request. Pricing for updates will be based on an hourly rate or as part of an existing IT Business Support Agreement.

Website Hosting

41st Degree Software provides its own hosting solutions, which can be customized to your requirements.

Plans include:

  • Storage for website files
  • Local Phone Support
  • Unlimited Email Support
  • Face to Face Local Support

Hosting the website with us is not a requirement of having the website developed through us, but it does allow us to have more fine grain control over how the website performs.
