Launching a new website is a critical aspect of any council’s digital transformation objectives, but it can be a time-consuming process. On average, it can take up to 6 months to launch a new website. However, by adopting a collaborative approach and working as ‘One Team’ with your supplier, it’s possible to achieve an effective and efficient delivery within this timeframe.
To ensure your new website meets the needs of your audience and reflects data from your previous site, it’s important to follow recommended GDS standards. This involves conducting a discovery phase and using an agile approach to design, develop, and test your website. The process includes an Alpha launch to a smaller audience, a Beta launch to a larger audience including specific target groups, and finally, a Production launch to all public audiences.
By adopting this approach and working collaboratively with your supplier, you can achieve an end-to-end implementation within six months, meeting your deadlines and delivering a high-quality service to the public.
