Oxide Interactive develops your strategy based on a detailed understanding of your business needs and challenges. To immerse ourselves in your business we'll talk to your stakeholders, analyse your industry and review the online presence of your competitors.
You need to be on the mark when engaging with your audience through social media or your efforts will fall flat. We’ll help you integrate social media into your world by assessing opportunities, analysing risks and stretching beyond traditional Web 2.0 techniques.
User centered design
User needs are often best met when based on reliable research. Oxide Interactive helps you get inside your users' heads. Our research regularly includes talking to and observing your users to see what makes them tick and how they need to use your website.
Oxide Interactive will produce novel conceptual design for your business and validate it through usability testing before full development, ensuring nothing gets lost on the way. This includes building relevant information architecture and designing for interaction.
It's costly to finish your website without first giving it a road test. With your prototype, you can experience your website before it's finalised—before it's too late or expensive to make vital changes. Reviewing your prototype enables you to get user feedback and then decide if refinements are needed.
Website design is not just about great looks. The visual appearance of your site has to be carefully thought through, communicate effectively and designed so your brand, values and personality are reflected and remembered.
Usability & Accessibility
There's no better reality check on how your website will be received than testing it with real users. Usability testing gives you valuable insight into how users interact, so you can enhance their experience. It's about being clear and simple, keeping users happy and making them feel comfortable on your site.
Oxide Interactive can conduct an expert analysis of your website to test if it's effective. Our review will identify potential usability issues and provide recommendations on how to best to solve them. Our recommendations are backed by leading theory and our experience in usability testing and interaction design.
To help you comply with the WCAG 2.0 and the Australian Government's National Transition Strategy, we can review the accessibility of your website and pave the way for all people in society to engage with you online. Our expert audit of your website will pinpoint issues you need to fix and include recommended solutions.
High-performance websites need powerful platforms. This is why we have become Drupal experts. We've used this scalable and flexible system on many web projects, in doing so we've gained tremendous experience with large-scale websites, complex web applications and innovative, engaging interactives.
Mobile applications are gaining momentum today. Again, our user centred approach will help you customise mobile applications and ensure your website appeals to users in a mobile environment and broad range of devices; for iPhone and iPad, as well as other smartphones and tablets.
Leverage the experience we've gained in working with Drupal since 2004 through our consulting services. You'll learn how to optimise or enhance your Drupal website as well as perform a migration or complex integration.
To ensure your mission critical website runs smoothly and consistently, we offer high-performance Acquia or Australian-based hosting for Drupal websites, including managed hosting services and backups.
Search engine optimisation
There's little point in being online if your users can't easily find you. From the beginning, your website will be built to optimise search engine exposure. We go even further, by developing a strategy that will guide you on how to finetune your content to boost search results.
