AccuNet has a process that helps all parties keep on track for a speedy launch

#23553 timeline

Step 01

Design Process Agreement

The first step after accepting AccuNet’s project quote, is to sign our Design Process Agreement. This form is used to help our clients gather the necessary files and information that AccuNet needs to begin the graphic design process.

Step 02

Discuss Design Details

AccuNet will meet online with our one client representative to discuss a number of design details.  We will summarize our conversation(s) into a design plan and email it to you for approval.  Information we will discuss includes:

  • blue circle

    Website color scheme, font preferences for headings and content

  • blue circle

    The use of images in the header and page titles

  • blue circle

    Header area content requirements (logo, search bar, tag lines, phone, address, etc.)

  • blue circle

    Organization of the mega menu (if wanted)

  • blue circle

    Website site map organization

  • blue circle

    Implementation of all features listed in the RFP

  • blue circle

    Unique layout of the home page content

  • blue circle

    Footer content to be seen at the bottom of every page of the website

Once all needed information is known, AccuNet will schedule the graphic design aspect of your project. It normally takes 5-10 business days for our graphic design team to deliver a mock up.  The date we submit a mock up design for your review starts the 12 week project completion clock.

Step 03

Design Review

This one mock up design will be reviewed by you and hopefully all editing ideas submitted back to AccuNet at one time.

The website design created by AccuNet is responsive for desktop and mobile phone presentation.  Our service automatically generates a tablet view.  If tablet design customization is requested beyond the automatic generation, we will quote as a separate project.

Step 04

Complete Edits

AccuNet will then complete requested edits to the mock up within 1-2 business days.

Step 05

Apply Design

Once the design is approved, it takes 4-5 days business days to apply the design into the website account.

Step 06

Website Launch

We anticipate it will take 10-20 business days to complete page creation and to add your content. However, AccuNet can start moving your content while the graphic design process moves forward in order to tighten the timeline to launch.

Before launch, every Civic Clarity website is reviewed for ADA Accessibility based on WCAG 2.0 Level AA requirements.
(More information on AccuNet's work towards ADA Compliance.)

Step 07

Website Content Editing

Training Website Editors

Your website editors can be trained pre or post launch on how to edit and add new content to the website.  AccuNet’s only requirement is that we have moved the bulk of the content before we start training.

AccuNet Maintenance Options

For clients who prefer to send updates to AccuNet we offer three maintenance package options: hourly, basic document upload, and Personal Website Editor.  You are not tied to any one option and can up/downgrade at any time.

Specific aspects of ADA Compliance are set up at launch and we do not provide ADA compliance review as part of our standard customer service.  If requested AccuNet will incorporate ADA review of your website or specific pages within your maintenance package.
