The approach we take can be summarized with an acronym: SEMICS.
Standards, Ergonomics, Maintainability, Intent, Compatibility, Speed
Why is SEMICS important?
First, any website must use technology that is somewhat standard to ensure that most people can view it and its content.
Next, people expect certain behavior of websites. Without that kind of standard behavior, they can become confused. Thus, along with standards, ergonomics is a close second.
Next, is maintainability. The person who requests a website should NOT have to contact the developer for every small change. It wastes everyone's time. Every Omni Impact website includes a basic cost of our Content Management System.
Intent and Compatiblity are also important. A website may be intended to sell, or be intended to advertise, or present information, or anything else; it's up to whomever the website is for. The website must meet that intent, and do so while being reliably viewable on as many platforms as reasonably possible. At a minimum, for web browsers, that would be Internet Explorer, and Mozilla (Firefox). We also check in KHTML based browsers like Safari, Google Chrome, and Konqueror, and of course, we can't forget Opera.
Last but not least, there's speed. Websites should load quickly even on slower internet connections. Updating should be fast and easy. Navigation should be intuitive. What good is a website that takes forever for anyone on it to get what they need out of it?
