You may be wondering...

Do I need a portal or a website?

In a nutshell: Websites are for driving traffic, while portals offer useful features to a limited or specified group of users

You need a website if...

  • you're creating a public website focused on delivering and managing content.
  • you need a front facing site that operates separately from an internal site/systems.
  • you need to draw traffic from a broad audience of anonymous users.

You need a portal if...

  • you’re looking to create specific audience experiences.
  • you need advanced control over what users see.
  • you have multiple systems that need to be integrated into one visual design.
  • you need advanced user management and permissioning features.

o“Right from the start, U7 demonstrated an impressive commitment to understanding our vision. The ideation and strategy phase, which involved the creation of mind maps and architecture plans, was executed with precision and creativity. This laid the foundation for our student portal that not only looks amazing but also functions seamlessly. We're now embarking on a second phase of the project to include additional features and we look forward to the continuous improvements and collaborations.”

Marisa Sosa, Skills for Success

“Discovering U7 through Google was like stumbling upon a hidden treasure! From a cold lead to a partnership that continues to grow, we're pleasantly surprised with the efficiency at which we've been able to make gradual edits to our website. Our website [for Swedish Door] is now sleek, intuitive, and perfectly aligned with our current offerings and brand presentation. We're so happy with the results that we jumped right into a new website redesign project for House of Fine Carpentry. It's a testament to the outstanding work U7 delivers. Here's to more successful collaborations!”

Paul St. Germain, Swedish Door

Is your organization experiencing any of the following painful symptoms?

A custom web solution could be the cure.

What comes next?

What’s included in your process?

While we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions, our custom website porjects each follow a similar set of steps from our first meeting to the launch day. Here’s what you can expect when you work with us!

Discovery and strategy

The discovery and proposal phase normally includes a discovery call and document, a project plan, and a quote! We often require multiple discussions with prospective clients, depending on how complex your website is going to be.

If you’re on board, we’ll begin the strategy phase. Together we’ll establish your desired brand strategy, user experience (UX) strategy, and the website architecture.

Design and build

This is the part where the visual elements of your custom website start to come to life! With the help of our in-house graphic designer, our team will begin writing or sourcing content, and creating wireframes and mockups. Once approved, our design team will hand off all the approved mockups and assets to the development team. The developers will set up the infrastructure and tools required to get started on building your website.

Testing and performance tuning

Testing and performance tuning is arguably the most important step of the whole process, because if your website doesn’t function properly, it isn’t going to deliver the results you need to meet your needs and goals.

As our client, we will ask you to take part in reviewing the dev site (the work in progress) and test it out to see if everything works to your liking. We’ll also do some testing of our own which includes design verification, functionality testing, browser compatibility testing, and more.

Go live

We made it! Your custom website is now ready to launch. We’ll flesh out a deployment plan that is specific to your needs and follows all best practices for a secure launch.

Once live, we’ll train you on how to use your new website for a seamless transition. Our team will always be available to help with future questions or new features, as your business evolves!

Now let’s get real...

Would we work well together?

We’re passionate about delivering the best custom solutions to the types of clients who would benefit most from working with us. As an agency, we aim to be as transparent as possible in all aspects of our projects, from quoting to go-live.

A custom website from U7 may NOT be for you if...

  • You’re looking for a quick fix
  • Your budget is under $15000
  • You want your project to be finished in 1-2 months
  • You don’t have time to be involved in the process
  • Your schedule can’t fit in weekly or bi-weekly meetings
  • You aren’t open to changing the way things have ‘always’ been done

We aren’t trying to sell EVERYONE on a custom website – our goal is to work with eager organizations and teams who are READY to completely transform their web presence, and have time to meet with us to provide feedback and input along the way.
