- About OHO
OHO doesn’t simply design and build websites. We implement websites that will grow, scale, and adapt with your organization. Successfully developing a website goes beyond the HTML and software, it goes to the people working to make the site a success. Our experienced professionals work collaboratively and bring to every new web project.
Every website is unique and has its own needs and requirements. Most sites we develop include some of the following features and functional areas. The exact mix to make your solution the best it can be will vary, however our commitment to a successful development effort is there with every initiative.
Getting content together for the website can sometimes be more of an effort than many people think. Today content covers not just the written word but also graphics, pictures, and video. Getting these developed, edited, styled, and laid out correctly is what OHO does as part of the website development.
Our in house team can take your content from a variety of sources and re-purpose it for the website. We also work with talented researchers, writers, and audio and video producers to create custom "web ready" articles, white papers, podcasts, and video pieces.
SEO is integral to all of our website design and development work. Our approach is to be thoughtful in the site structure and to make it naturally “search engine friendly” so that the website content will be ranked well by the search engines. Today search engines optimize partly by looking for certain standards and mostly by analyzing the content. OHO follows the current standards such as site maps, "friendly URLs," and similar items. We are much more focused on making sure the content on your site is matching the searching patterns you are expecting.
Our writers are thoughtful in the writing the website marketing copy so that it emphasizes the right terms and concepts and supports your mission. We also work with you for ongoing paid search campaigns that enhances your marketing mix.
OHO's development team routinely develops websites that are driven by industry standard Content Management Systems. We regularly develop content so that it can be deployed into: Microsoft Sharepoint, Interwoven TeamSite, Ektron CMS 400, Joomla and Drupal. Websites built on modern Web 2.0 content management systems can grow, expand, and integrate with back-end applications with efficiencies that were not available just 5 years ago.
Website development and web application development are serious software efforts. At OHO, we use the best tools and best practices to ensure that the software is developed well, meets the specifications, is supportable for the future and integrates with SOA and web-services from Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, Sun Java, and other leading IT providers. Also at OHO our software engineers and web developers work hand-in-hand with our creative designers and interactive producers. The result is a more integrated and polished solution that flows smoothly, integrating both creative design and technology strength.
Using agile methodologies and as soon as is practicable, we make the development system available for our clients to see and to test. OHO uses online bug and defect tracking systems and well as online collaboration tools so that testing and acceptance flow in parallel with development in a very agile approach.
OHO's development team is also comfortable working with more traditional waterfall approach and having formal test plans and acceptance processes.
