Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
Our working practices are collaborative by nature and we work closely with our clients to fully understand their goals, values and objectives. This allows us to scope out the project requirements, training and supporting documents that will required by the client through the course of the project and as they transition to business as usual after the website has been delivered.

End-of-contract data extraction
Our client owns all IPR and therefore there is no requirement for data extraction.
End-of-contract process
The contract pricing outlines everything in our proposal, to be delivered within the agreed timescales. Additional costs would only occur if the client requests further services that are outwith the original scope (e.g. additional functionality or extra training). At the end of the contract, the client will approve all of our work with a simple sign-off. As the client maintains all IPR for our services, they will then have full capability to maintain the service.

Differences between the mobile and desktop service
We use a mobile first design strategy. This initially confirms and tests the design for the smallest screen (i.e. a smartphone), before progressively moving to larger screens (i.e. a tablet, then desktop). This ensures that the key UI/UX features are displayed on all devices, and provides a quality User Experience, with minimal differences between the mobile and desktop service.

Customisation available
Description of customisation
Wombat Creative’s service allows for full customisation before, during and beyond the project delivery.

Before the delivery, we work with our client to determine the initial scope of UI/UX requirements. At this time, we are essentially working with a blank canvas and our team can customise all aspects of the solution. Both the Client and their users can shape the level of customisation at this point. During the delivery, we work in-line with agile principles. This gives the Client full transparency throughout the project, via regular progress meetings and UAT. As such, both the Client and their users can influence further customisation (to all UI/UX features), throughout the delivery phase. After the delivery, the Client can determine multiple user access permissions (e.g. Administrator) which can be used to customise functions of the solution. Users may also have customisable features, such as editing their user profile. We provide full support and training for all solutions before they go live.
