Why Choose Us?
There are a number of reasons to choose Voreti for your next project, but first, it will help to know a bit about where we came from, and why we created Voreti in the first place.
A New Way To Play
One of the biggest gripes people we've spoken to have with purchasing websites is the unpredictability of the costs. Quotes would range wildly from a few hundreds to multiple thousands for the same project and there was no guarantee that a higher quote means a better quality product.
We primarily differentiate ourselves by revolutionising how you pay for your new website. We spread the cost of a project over its estimated lifetime and include hosting, domain name management, and any minor amendments that you can't do with the Content Management System as standard with every project, there no hidden extra costs down the line; this means that you can budget a predictable and fixed monthly amount and no longer worry about rising or unpredictable costs for your website.
Of course, you can still pay upfront and host yourself if you want to, with us you have the choice.
Another major problem companies we've worked with ran into was the standard model of buying a website and then replacing it wholesale every 18 months to 3 years with an entirely new website. The number one question you should ask if you find yourself undertaking this type of project is: How do I know this website will perform any better than the last one? The simple answer is: You don't. You're putting your faith in the word of your new developer and hoping that the fresh look and new technology will outperform the old.
Our years of experience have taught us that this is rarely the case. This is why we do not recommend this way of working. Instead, we offer two types of support that can scientifically demonstrate improvement over time.
The flagship of these services is our Continuous Improvement service. For a fixed monthly fee we will propose a new hypothesis every single month and conduct a series of scientific experiments to reliably improve your website over time, with the evidence to back it up.
Continuous Improvement is lot easier, cheaper, and more beneficial than doing a blind redesign every few years. We continue to make these changes over the lifetime of the project so you can get back to running your business and never have to worry about it again.
You don't have to have a new website or project for us to perform Continuous Improvement for you either, we have experience with all major technologies and platforms so whatever your existing website was built with we can help you improve it over time, using real life statistics and scientific experiments.
We offer a range of alternative services if a fully managed Continuous Improvement isn't for you, including a similar service where we can plan changes for you to implement yourself or with your own team, and we can also do simple website maintenance where we'll make whatever changes you want or need without any of the hypotheses or science.
These days, having a website is so ubiquitous that most businesses don't even question whether or not they need one. One of our major concerns is the bad image our industry has been given by the snatch-and-grab companies that will take your money and not care if your website or project is a success once it's delivered.
We think that's just bad business, so much so, the first question we will always ask is: Why do you want a website? If you don't have clearly defined goals and success criteria for the project, how will either of us know it's been a success? And we want to make sure your project is a success and meets all of your goals, because that means you make more money, and ultimately that means you are more likely to tell your friends about us, and you are more likely to come back and work with us again!
Making sure your project is a success is so important to us that if you don't have clear goals and success criteria for your project we won't take it on.
Reliable Tools and Processes
Given our years of experience and the thousands of websites and applications we have built, we have seen projects go wrong for a wide variety of reasons. Lack of communication, poor understanding of the requirements, and unproven technologies are all very common reasons for projects to go wrong.
With clear processes that are constantly tested and improved (a process the Japanese call Kaizen) we drastically reduce many of the usual issues that plague software projects that go bad. We also help the process along using specific in-house tools we've developed, such as our Project Timeline Hub that helps keep everyone on the same page and up-to-date.
We're so passionate about our processes and tools that we even publish them freely online for other businesses to use and benefit from.
Having worked on The Internet for so long also has other benefits, we worked through the Dot-Com Bubble of the late 90's and have seen more than a few fads and technologies come and go. Todays hottest tech is often tomorrows legacy code, and as a result of seeing this play out in real life numerous times we have built up a tolerance to the latest shiny toys, and only use technologies and methods that have longevity, having proven themselves reliable time and time again.
We still like to play with and try out new technology, but client projects are not the place for it.
