Being open source evangelists, we provide our clients with a much greater long term value than other agencies, who often lock clients into an expensive, proprietary solution. We want you to come back to us because you want to, not because you have to.
Our goal is to take the headache out of building your website or application and combine beauty with utility, so you obtain the greatest overall value possible.
It’s the relentless pursuit of a better web.
At Tenacity we pride ourselves on doing our homework, we want to know who you are, who your competitors are, and who your audience is. During this phase we want to hear about your needs and wants so we can build the best solution for you.
We think of design as a multifold process that includes both strategy and creativity, and if either of these core concepts is lacking, then your solution won’t work. After all of our research is in, we focus on formulating a precise design and strategy with a well-defined scope.
While Development, Content Entry, and Testing are the cornerstones of this stage, everything we learned during the Discovery and Design phases better allow us to move on to the process where design is coded and then integrated into your custom technology solution.
With every project we do, we want to make sure it continues to perform at its highest level. We work with clients to establish long-term, easy to understand plans for maintenance and hosting. We’re interested in the long tail, our reputation depends on it.
