Some information on what and how we do things for you.
User Interface (UI) Design focuses on anticipating what users might need to do and ensuring that the interface has elements that are easy to access, understand, and use to facilitate those actions. UI brings together concepts from interaction design, visual design, and information architecture.
Good user interface design facilitates finishing the task at hand without drawing unnecessary attention to itself. Graphic design may be utilized to support its usability, influencing how the user performs certain interactions and improving the aesthetic appeal of the design; design aesthetics may enhance or detract from the ability of users to use the functions of the interface. The design process must balance technical functionality and visual elements (e.g., mental model) to create a system that is not only operational but also usable and adaptable to your user’s changing needs.
Everything stems from knowing you and your users, including understanding their goals, skills, preferences, and tendencies. BFI does not pretend to invent the wheel and forces user to learn new interface design elements, we base our design on widely accepted themes to allow your users to apply what they already know about navigation in a web browser.
Cloud applications usually have business oriented that is made up for a single purpose. Popular examples are content management systems (CMS), Client Relationship Management Systems (CRM), Blog applications, etc. BrowserFiles customizes your experience by turning these out of the box applications runed to your needs.
A cloud application is usually a server-side Web application framework designed for Web development to produce dynamic Web pages. It was developed by allow programmers to build dynamic web sites, web applications and web services. In a lot of cases, cloud applications tend to connect to a data source of some sort like a database server, xml source or even files themselves. BFI uses the latest server-side technologies from Microsoft, including ASp .NET, MVC, Entity Framework, LinQ and a lot more. These allow us to bring rock-solid technologies to your doorstep that i backed up by technology giants.
A microsite is an Internet web design term referring to an individual web page, a small cluster of pages, or even a large application, which are meant to function as a discreet entity within an existing website. The microsite’s main landing page most likely has its own domain name or subdomain.
Depending on the configuration, a microsite can be a small image gallery, a forum website, a support portal, a customer relations management system or even a shopping cart.
The need to integrate a microsite into an existing website has a lot of advantages, it allows you to get up a system up and running without reconfiguring your whole website to accommodate the new functionality. It also allows you to update the new application without the primary domain downtime.
In this age of cloud computing, some might say that the desktop application might be obsolete. This is actually far from the truth. Desktop applications has been around way beyond when we were still learning the alphabet and it will still be around far long after.
The reason behind this is technology itself. The way data communication works, the shortest route to a datasource is the best source – your computer. If technology finds a way to beat that through the internet or through your local network, that’s the time when we could re-think giving desktop applications the retirement cheque.
As much as BFI favors developing for the cloud, we balance the need for local development to give client the option what’s best for their organization.
Corporate branding is the practice of using a company’s name as a product brand name. It is an attempt to use corporate brand equity to create product brand recognition. It is a type of family branding or umbrella brand.
BFI values the need for a corporate identity which allows for better brand recognition, recall and top of mind. We use visual elements and compelling designs to give your company the look and feel of a professional organization.
Corporate branding is not limited to a specific mark or name. Branding can incorporate multiple touchpoints. These touchpoints include; logo, customer service, treatment and training of employees, packaging, advertising, stationery, and quality of products and services. Any means by which the general public comes into contact with a specific brand constitutes a touchpoint that can affect perceptions of the corporate brand.
BFI offers complete corporate branding from logo, letterheads, websites, email signatures, and even calling card designs.
Video production is the process of creating video by capturing moving images (videography), and creating combinations and reductions of parts of this video in live production and post-production (video editing). In most cases the captured video will be recorded on electronic media such as video tape, hard disk, or solid state storage, but it might only be distributed electronically without being recorded. It is the equivalent of filmmaking, but with images recorded electronically instead of film stock.
BFI offers video productions in forms of corporate AVP (audio-video presentations), video commercials, product videos and even video tutorials. Additonal services might be optimizing for the web and video streaming. We use different technologies in animations and video rendering so you get full HD experience from our creations.
Graphic design is the art of communication, stylizing, and problem-solving through the use of type, space and image. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term “graphic design” is used interchangeably with these due to overlapping skills involved. We use various methods to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages.
BFI uses a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a final result. Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated.
While our tools are great, there is one factor to make graphic design work – you. Only through an exchange of ideas with our graphic developers can we create the desired effect and visual ement that will fit your needs.
Before everything else (so ironic to mention this at the last page), to have your developed site published through the web we would need a domain.
For informations’ sake, lets go back to square one: What is a domain? To say it casually – “It is something you type in the browser address bar.” Wow, really? Does “%f*!k^!!” work? Well, not really (but we can make it work). A domain needs to be registered to a domain registrar – a domain registrar allow you to “rent” a particular domain for a period of time. A domain can be visualized as your corporate internet address, and in order for people to get to you, they would need to know that address.
BFI can facilitiate this registration for you and register your desired domain (eg. yourcompany.com). The next step should be publishing your webpages to a web server (hosting).
To visualize web hosting, now that you have a domain (web address), it’s time to build a house. All relevant files in creating your web application should now be transfered to your hosting space (house), so people could view what you have for them. BFI also facilitated these for you in forms of shared hosting, managed hosting, dedicated servers and virtual servers.
Microsoft Access is a development environment used to create computer-based databases. To complement it, it ships with a programming language called Visual Basic For Application (VBA) and various libraries. This language and the libraries are used in a programming environment called Microsoft Visual Basic, which also ships with Microsoft Access.
Not all corporations are ready to make a dedicated commitment in creating their customized desktop application. We use Microsoft Access for RAD (Rapid Application Development) either for modelling or sometimes as a fully functional system-wide solution.
BFI realizes the importance of this tool from Microsoft and extends to you this option.
