Our Sitecore Implementation Team is here to make your Sitecore CMS implementation experience, an absolute joy. Besides making sure your site launches on time, without any hiccups– we go the extra mile to make sure you are well trained and feel fully prepared to do your job, when your site goes live.
We’re able to consistently deliver a stress free Sitecore CMS implementation experience, because of our people and our process.
We do that by helping you find the quickest and most cost effective place to start, and then enhancing your implementation over time. Call it agile, call it iterative– our clients call it effective.
A lot goes into a successful Sitecore CMS implementation. Here’s what you can expect when you partner with Engagency.
Our process includes having an experienced, Sitecore-Certified Solution Architect create a detailed architecture plan for all of the modules and content that will be created. The architecture document is then delivered and reviewed with all stakeholders to ensure we are all on same page and that the work is inline with the existing implementation and understanding of the project.
Based on the architecture, a Sitecore-Certified Developer (or multiple depending on project scale) will create the solution, working with internal developers as needed. A technical lead will be assigned to the project who will be responsible for the overall direction and quality of the solution as a whole. Development is typically done in sprints or rounds with particular attention given to the needs of the Content Entry team. All development undergoes peer review before being submitted for QA review.
For each round of development, a process of thorough review involving written test cases, internal review, agency review, and client review. All issues are resolved before moving into the next round.
Towards the end of the development process, training documentation will be developed which provides an illustrated guide and step-by-step instructions for content editors to follow and refer back to time and again. A formal training which can be recorded will also be done to ensure that all content editors have the opportunity to learn through direct usage and to ask questions as needed.
Once the solution is ready - development completed and tested, users trained, content loaded - the site is ready for deployment. Engagency will implement a build and deployment process and get the site deployed on the servers. Engagency then works with members of the IT team to point the DNS to the new site.
And then we go live! :-)
Content management is a multi-step process. There are various stakeholders involved, with different folks responsible for different tasks. A CMS should ease this process, rather than introducing new complications.
Our Sitecore experts will work with your team to understand how your team manages content (from upload to publish), and who’s responsible for what along the way. Then, we’ll build the optimal workflows within Sitecore to enhance your process and speed time-to-market.
Your business can only perform as well as the metrics you watch to improve it.
Our Sitecore Analytics Implementation can give your team the insights you need to understand who your customers are, how they’re arriving at your website, and what steps they take once they get there. Identify the behavior patterns that lead to conversions, instead of spinning your wheels making your best guess.
Today’s businesses serve a global audience. Your customers exist in various countries and continents, and they speak different languages. No matter where they live, or what they speak, your website needs to serve all of your customers.
Let our Sitecore Implementation Team help you translate your content for your customers all over the globe, with a few clicks of the mouse. We’ll start by creating a multi-language content architecture and then integrate the translation service provider of your choice.
If you collect sensitive customer data through your website, or you want to improve your Google keyword ranking, you need to secure it with a SSL/TLS certificate.
Our Sitecore Implementation Team is ready to help you adhere to data security and SEO best practices, in one fell swoop, by implementing encryption on your site.
