Planning service
How the planning service works
Our team can discuss your exact requirements and help you plan out technical implementation approaches, including supporting the development of technical diagrams and discussions with hosting partners as needed.

As part of any planning service we can support a full business analysis of your technology stack requirements as well as solution designs and discussions with potential suppliers.

Training service provided
How the training service works
In the run-up to the launch of the new site, and throughout its life cycle as required, we would train your team on how to use the new system effectively. We would agree the exact approach with you directly, but we would typically:

1) Put on classroom-style training sessions (which can be facilitated by skype if face to face contact is not viable) - tailoring each session to the group level, from advanced users who will update the site on a constant basis to those with little to no knowledge of web editing who may only use the CMS once or twice a month;

2) Provide easy to follow, but in-depth step-by-step CMS guides - these written guides are ‘How Tos’ and include screenshots of the system and instructions on how to make updates.

3) Put together accessible screencasts - narrated videos of our team using the service to achieve tasks explained in the sessions and guides.

BBD is committed to empowering clients to take control of their systems and their integration into wider business operations.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
The quality of our products is ensured by the approach we take to managing our projects. Not only do our clients have the opportunity to check that they are happy with what they have commissioned as it develops, and to give feedback throughout the delivery process, but they are also given a period of time before launch to test the product and point out to us any functional issues. We will fix these issues before launch and provide a 30 day warranty so that, if anything were to go wrong in the month after the site has gone live, we would attend to it at no extra cost.

Technically, our code is developed to agreed coding standards, and we pay particular attention to formatting and naming conventions. On completion of a project, code is run through the Coder Review module - part of This analyses code and gives a line-by-line breakdown of where it doesn’t match coding standards, enabling us to make the necessary improvements before any developments are launched.

Support levels
Our service desk operates in-office-hours support only (08:30 to 17:30) Monday – Friday (excluding Bank and Public holidays), although we undertake basic monitoring of both email and voicemail outside of these times. Where an incident is reported at the end of a working day, we will attempt to remedy the situation according to the severity of the incident. Where this requires out-of-hours work, we will not undertake any activity without explicit client approval of any additional charges, otherwise, the incident will be resolved during the next working day (as required).

The client is requested to provide out-of-office escalation contacts in case of emergencies.

Support requests are split into the following categories: critical, severe, minor with associated response times for each category. Each account is supported by a project director and project manager.
