We will analyze your case and provide a report. Depending on your situation and needs, only some of the steps below might be necessary.
Nevertheless we would like to give you a full picture representing how your products and services can be translated into business processes and these into IT Systems.

A website is a must requirement to be online and the last of other important choices.
You might want to present your products or services or both to your present and new potential customers. You might also want to convey other information to your clients and to other audience. All your needs need to be analyzed in detail before thinking at the possible technical solution.
The result of our analysis will result in a concept. The concept will list a series of elements that will result in the set of features associated to your website.
Let’s make an example with your products and services.
Proceed to our Online / eCommerce section.
Proceed to our Multilanguage Solution page.
After anaylizing what you want to show to your visitors, we have to define how to presenting.
A good combination of content and form is the condition to convey the information efficiently.
We offer not only IT and Engineering but also design services. This will allow to have am homogeneous layout in all your media.
Choose Netfe and we will design and develop a modern, good looking and functional website. Moreover we will be able to deliver any kind or documentation, client brochures and business cards.
This is advanced functionality and not every website or online service needs it. Like all the rest also this part needs to be considered from the beginning.We will list below the most common tasks.
– Site A and site B have common user base
– this means that an user registering on site A will also automatically be registered on site B
– the case becomes even more interesting if you need the user that logs in on site A to be logged in on site B as well. This is a typical case of SSO (Single Sign On)
These tasks can be very complex to manage and this generates costs that are not thinkable for a small-medium company budget. We take the challenge and we trust we can offer a solution to your needs.
A message can be an email, an SMS (text message), a voice Message or an MMS (picture message).
A typical case is when you want to send an email after a certain product has arrived. Or if you want to verify the mobile number of a specific user. Of course the use cases are only limited by phantasy here.
Generating traffic is one of the most important steps in making yourself known to potential customers. Moreover it is important to attract the users that most probably are interested in purchasing your products and services. There are 2 main processes involved in this phase and are described in the sections below. You will also considering offering ad spaces to others.
Often a website is just the top of the iceberg, the part of your system that is visible to the world.
Often your website will be relating to ther systems. Typical case is to connect it to a CRM System, which yould take care of the customer information, such as hitory of purchases. Another possible integration is to the billing system, which takes care of invoicing. If you sell products you should also have an inventory system (stock management), so that your website would know at any one point if articles are ready to delivery or a message (other gateway system) needs to be sent to vendors.
The options for integration are so many that we cannot list all here. We have a broad experience in integrating systems using efficient SOA (System Oriented Architecture) design.
Depending on your needs, a mobile presence will be needed. We treat this as a separate chapter from the classic website, because (even) the same person, when accessing the website or the mobile site might have completing different needs and behavior. For this reason a specific analysis needs to be done.
Basically there are 2 options, that we briefly describe in the next sections. You might consider to take the first, the second or both.
