WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE | Integrated or standalone
The Services team are here to support new and existing customers with their objectives. It is our job to assist on any aspect of the project and use our knowledge and cross-industry experiences to guide, advise and add value.
Our Total Engagement Programme ensures that all of our solutions are supported by first class services. Before your project even begins we involve our team in the procurement process to make sure we understand your objectives completely and can bring the right skills to the project.
This same team will support you through the initial definition and scoping phases, through design and then deployment; But our service does not stop there! We then provide on-going support with analysing and monitoring your solution to make sure it continues to deliver on your objectives providing a full 360 degree approach to your project.
What makes us different from design agencies? We have a deep understanding of our sectors, as well as the customers of our customers. We work to a scalable, modular and efficient component design methodology that puts the power of creation in the customer's hands. And, we are always pushing innovation and finding new ways of improve solutions in the VerseOne CMS. We literally don't stop; we are designers by choice, designers by nature, designers by passion.

AGILE AND PRINCE2 DRIVEN METHODOLOGY | Project Managment Office
All of our projects start with our robust, industry tested project managment process. This starts with an internal kick off (IKO) where all the internal stakeholders review the documentation and have full visibilty of the scope of the project. That is followed by an External kick off (EKO) with the internal stakeholders and customers come together to go through the scope and the project plan, making sure all members of staff who will be working on the project are part of the discussion from day 1!
During the project the PMO will hold regular catch up's through-out all phases to make sure there is constant review of the milestones and to make sure the project is always focused on being delivered on time, on budget and to the highest quality.
Workshops and Discovery
workshops uncovers pain points with the current solution, discussions of the information architecture, and design of the new digital solution. This helps build a picture of your content and how you can structure this content for your audience needs. These sessions are usually virtual, consisting of stakeholders, service users, customers to tenants.
Breaking down silos has an impact not only on your workflow but also directly on the quality of what you deliver. Exploring some of the concepts and problems together provides you with synergy and the level of critical thinking only achievable when you involve people of varied expertise. A developer is never going to have the same perspective as a designer or marketer. All inputs are equally important, and taking them into account will enable you to explore the potential solutions beyond what the design team could come up with.
These sessions clarify business requirements, the types of users, their needs, and the type of typical task they want to achieve. We incorporate techniques such as persona development , card sorting, wire-framing and in-depth peer and organisational analysis to craft the optimum solution for your objectives and KPIs. Our discovery workshop sessions engage directly with the people that matter, from organisational stakeholders to service users; interacting with key people invested in the desired solution means we can truly understand and deliver for your business.
We believe in the power of creativity to solve problems and communicate ideas. Every VerseOne design is unique and tailored to the specific needs of its parent project. Whether for a secure portal with clear and concise pathways for self-service, an intranet requiring a reliable and easily navigable document library, a website to promote and enhance your brand, or a motion graphic to explain a complex idea, we have the tools and frameworks in place to deliver.
The design phase consists of two key stages:
Wireframes: These concentrate on the layout, structure, and information hierarchy of the digital solution. The aim of this phase provides a visual understanding of a page early in a project to get stakeholder and project team approval before the creative phase (or high-fidelity mockup stage). Wireframes can also create the global and secondary navigation to ensure the terminology and structure used for the site meets user expectations. Branding, illustrations to colour are disregarded as part of this process. Why is this the case? Because the focus is solely on the layout, without distraction from visuals and branding.
High-Fidelity Mockup: Using the wireframe as a structure and base, the high-fidelity mockup stage incorporates the branding, colours to photography. Think of the wireframe as the skeleton of the design, whilst the high-fidelity mockup phase is the skin. Applying all of these elements (plus things like illustrations, icons etc.) to the wireframe designs
