Summary of Producer- and Consumer-related Benefits

The QUESTION at issue here is this: What will most likely happen once a company's management fully embraces a policy of adherence to Web standards for establishing and maintaining a significant Web presence for their company?

The ANSWER is that the ensuing benefits will be manifold. More specifically, "win-win" situations for both the company and its Web site visitors -- both near- and long-term -- will become ever more self-evident over time, and everyone's productivity will be substantially increased.

Bold statements? Yes, but this "Scsi's WebKISS™ Guide #5: How does Adherence to Web Standards Save Both Time and Money?" Web page outlines specific examples that support such important and far-reaching conclusions.

For your convenience, you may also select this Scsi's Major Benefits of World Class Level Web Site Design hyperlink -- or the graphic below if present -- to launch the untagged PDF file with its respective hyperlinks to choose from for each of the six major benefits of "World Class Level" Web site design listed above and detailed below.

Viewed from the highest level, increases in corporate profitability and individual productivity will be garnered in three essential ways:

  1. Cost savings through reduction in monies expended to produce, test, distribute, and maintain a given Web site's pages
  2. Time savings attributable to increased efficiencies and effectiveness in such areas as Web page design, development, implementation, testing, support, and maintenance
  3. Increased revenue generation as a consequence of this return-on-investment commitment coupled with an enhanced Web site presence due largely to improvements in both Web accessibility and Web usability of its Web pages

 

Additional details on these and related matters are provided under the headings which follow:

Web Site Producer-related Benefits

  1. Reduced Time-to-Develop New Designs, Layouts, and Content
  2. Simultaneous Attainment of Customer-centric Benefits
  3. High and ongoing return-on-investment (ROI)

Reduced Time-to-Develop New Designs, Layouts, and Content

Among the many possible coding-related burdens that can be either reduced or eliminated entirely when Web standards are adopted and implemented properly are the following:

  1. Overhead of extraneous code
  2. Juggling of scripting to address multiple versions among Web browsers, including Web browser-specific idiosyncrasies for rendering of Web page content
  3. Necessity for reworking of code to address newer version browsers or additional vendors' offerings
  4. Requirement for handling of numerous operating systems and any respective dynamic link library-dependent routines or calls; and plug-in support when applicable.

Simultaneous Attainment of Customer-centric Benefits

As is clearly exemplified throughout the Scsi P&KT Web site, adherence to Web standards -- especially so when carried to a World Class Level -- can create a Customer-centric Focus and accommodate a number of wonderful benefits that Web site visitors will always appreciate as being available to them. For example:

  1. Platform Independence
  2. Web browser Independence
  3. Screen Resolution Independence

 

In addition, please refer to Scsi's Web Site Best Practices #2 and #7 for more details about each of these benefits ... and more.

High and ongoing Return on Investment (ROI)

  1. Reduction in "Silent Losses" should always be kept in mind, and proactive steps should be in place toward minimizing this possibility throughout any Web visitor's experience while at your Web site. By focusing on providing customer-centric features through adherence to Web standards, you will be doing your part toward addressing this matter both effectively and efficiently.
  2. Look back over all the above reasons and justifications for adopting and implement Scsi's Web Site Best Practices for World Class Level Web sites and ask yourself this question: "After all is said and done, what's not to like about a Web site that incorporates such Best Practices as fast loading, a dual-domain search window, intelligently wordwrapped printing, and so on?"
  3. If you reflect upon this question for even just a few moments, you will undoubtedly grasp hold of this fact: All of these high-return-on-investment capabilities are inherently contained within Scsi's entire set of ten Web site Best Practices.
  4. Moreover, once these do-it-once-and-for-all-time Web page Best Practices are in place, the return on investment (ROI) will begin to kick in, and your company's chances for increased profitability will be significantly enhanced as a result.

Web Site Visitors-related Benefits

  1. Concentrated efforts by Web site personnel focused on achieving a judicious design which also adheres to Web standards will assure that your Web site will achieve an increased number of Scsi's ten Web site Best Practices.
  2. Whether they know it or not, as a consequence of your company's commitment to adherence to Web standards, savvy Web site visitors will immediately benefit from and recognize your customer-satisfaction-driven efforts. Moreover, because of the now-improved Web site experience, these same visitors will likely decide to transfer allegiance to your company and encourage their friends and associates to do likewise.
  3. Meanwhile, any of your Web-site-dependent competitors who have yet to learn about, have neglected to consider further, or have simply delayed in applying one or more of Scsi's World Class Level Web Site Best Practices within their Web sites' pages will lose ground to those companies who have taken such steps. Doesn't that seem to be a reasonable conclusion to reach, especially in today's highly competitive Web-enabled environment?
