Our Process

The Elements of Success

All elements of the ABT period table, a visualization of the services and expertise ABT has to offer.

At Atlantic BT, we don’t provide a single solution for all our customers. We have a robust process and software development lifecycle, with a variety of expertise and skills to best suit your project. Here’s a short overview, but dig in deeper – we’ve got details for each element of the table!

By breaking the process down into five stages, you can easily navigate the journey from concept to completion. The first stage is Discovery. This involves getting to know your client and their needs, and understanding the project’s goals and objectives. The second stage is Design. Here, you’ll create a site map, wireframes, and a design that meets the client’s needs and expectations. The third stage is Development. You’ll use the design to create the web site, using HTML, CSS, and other programming languages. The fourth stage is Deployment. You’ll make sure the web site is fully functional and ready to go live. The final stage is Delight. This involves monitoring the site and making sure it’s up to date with the latest trends and technologies, while also building new features. Following these five stages will help ensure that your custom web site is exactly what you envisioned.

The Five Phases of Our Process

Phase One


This is the requirements-gathering phase, where we identify what the client organization wants to achieve, which leads naturally to understanding your users and their needs.

Phase Two


This is the phase where we enter the “solution space,” where we look at how we can meet the organizational objectives and user needs that are defined in the discovery phase.

Phase Three


This is the phase where the developers take over and start building the underlying infrastructure, the platform on which all else rests.

Phase Four


Once all the code is complete, the IT group takes the fore and leads the deployment process. Our expertise in DevOps and Infrastructure-as-Code enables us to make the complex and challenging task of taking a complex website manageable and a smooth transition for users.

Phase Five


While the name may sound a bit frivolous at first, the delight phase is extremely important for any website that is interested in attracting, engaging and retaining customers who exist in a continuously evolving web-enabled world.
