We provide solutions to the automotive industry and I am in charge of the eBusiness area of the company. I provide all types of integration between systems and have also begun providing basic website design services. This is an area which has been received quite well but it is not something that I want to continue doing in house.
I am looking for a 3rd party to provide my company with all of our web design services on an ongoing basis.
Our current process involves:
1 - Creating a conceptual design
2 - Getting customer sign off.
3 - Developing website for customer
4 - Getting customer signoff
5 - Delivering website.
I would like to discuss with you further the opportunity of setting up a business relationship between my company and whomever to provide ALL of our website design and development services via us to our customers.
I am willing to commit a certain number of websites within a 6-12 month period to obtain the best possible pricing.
We will also be looking at integrating shopping carts and forms as another level to our offerings.
What I am looking for is some type of operating agreement relating to pricing for a few levels. This is where I see the levels (we currently charge on a per page or per day basis but are open to your suggestions):
1 - Conceptual Design
2 - Static Website Development
3 - Dynamic Content Development (Quote forms etc)
4 - Complete Shopping Cart (Fully Interactive)
All I am concerned with at this point is:
1 - An experienced design firm with proven ability to provide exceptional graphic/web design
2 - Costing on a per day or per page basis for each component to compare with my current costs.
