Web Development Process

When building a web application, you can use two types of development: Minimum viable product (MVP) and Product Enhancement. The first is for applications that need to be built from scratch, and the second is great for current products that need further development or improvement.

At Fapshi, we build websites and web apps of all types. We also offer complementary services such as SEO, Product Design, Content Creation, among others.


MVP Development

When building a web application, we recommend the MVP development approach. You’ll achieve a faster release, reduced costs, more time for testing, and tangible feedback. The MVP will help you know whether your business idea will work or not, what your users expect, and what functionalities you’ll need to change.

A Minimum Viable Product is especially important for startups and medium-sized businesses that need to establish product-market fit quickly, without investing significant money.

We want your business to leverage evidence, instead of assumptions. A well-developed MVP won’t be a buggy mess with limited usage and features. It’s a complete and usable software that allows you to test, gain user insights, prove your ideas, and improve development continuously based on real testing and feedback.

Product Enhancement

If you’d like to update, improve or further develop your existing web application, our strategies for refactoring and bringing legacy code applications up-to-date include:

  •  Thorough research of the industry to understand the evolution of the users and competitors,
  • Analysis of the features and updates needed, and getting familiar with your product, to know how to work with it and change it without breaking it.

We adjust to the coding standard of the current application, build new features on top of it and integrate new tools. While introducing these updates, we won’t be causing any downtime on production servers, which means your application will continue to run and be used by the users while we modernize it piece by piece.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the type and complexity of the site, about 90% of the cost falls within the range of 150,000 F CFA to 2 Million F CFA. This price range can vary considerably depending on the complexity of the project, so it is a good idea to discuss with the development team to clarify your idea, and create a requirements specification document for the site in advance to make an informed decision whether or not to move forward. We at Fapshi could work with you to come up with the requirements specification document for free. All you need do is contact us.

There are some things which all websites need. These include but are not limited to:

  • Brand Identity (A name and slogan if there is, logo, brand colors if any)
  • Software Requirements Specification Document
  • The website content (usually a typed document file provided after all functionalities have been discussed and validated)
  • Media (Pictures, videos, links to social media channels, etc)

Regular portfolio sites and blogs usually take 2 – 5 weeks to complete. Ecommerce sites, however, are more demanding and could take 1 – 12 months to build. It depends greatly on the functionalities expected. A simple online shop with offline/online purchase functionalities would typically take 1 – 2 months to complete.
