Major Benefits of "World Class Level" Web Site Design

*** Return to TOP of this page. ***

 

Users should always be in control

Isn't this web-centric focus an example of not only taking the high road in traveling through a Web site's underlying design but also of maintaining customer-centric focus as well?

Scsi's "Users should always be in control" approach certainly beats being nothing more than "just a passenger" who is along for a ride without ever knowing the rules of the road, where you are to be taken, and likely deciding that you really don't want to go there at all. Pleasee read on.

Why are most Web sites not addressing and implementing customer-centric solutions?

Perhaps it's just that other Web site designers have never thought things through well enough to the point where they must acknowledge that you -- not the Web site designers or the company's management personnel -- are the one who must be provided with maximum control and flexibility over what is to be a Web site's purpose, content, navigability, and usefulness.

Restated in a positive way, TOTAL ACCESS should and must be the overall purpose and underlying objective that will best prove to serve -- at all times and in as many ways as are possible -- the predominant interests of all visitors to any "World Class level" Web site.

Is the expected executive management not truly involved or concerned in all this?

Or, perhaps the Web site designers made one or more design-related compromises that were management-driven to such an extent that the selected design inherently limited their ability to offer you the "Perfect 10" set of Scsi's Web Site Best Practices that are the very foundation for every page on the Scsi P&KT Web site. Who really knows the answer to this question?

Witness how the Scsi P&KT Web site seamlessly makes all visitors into true winners with no restrictions whatsoever

Getting back to basics and proving that customer-centric Web sites are achievable

While browsing the Web pages of this site, you will quickly learn, realize, and appreciate the fact that you really do have all of the above benefits standing at-the-ready to serve you at all times.

Why has this user-centric freedom not been provided as straightforward, easy-to-understand (and appreciate) Scsi's Web Site Best Practices by someone before Scsi's Productivity and Knowledge Transfer Web site came into being? Again, the question arises: Who really knows?

By way of striking contrast, Scsi chose to always focus on making sure the visitor/customer/prospect/user remains in charge of the Web site experience, ultimately achieving an exemplary model satifying a World Class Level Web site design and implementation that continues to keep this user-centric objective uppermost in mind at all times.

Demand customer-centric solutions

Scsi encourages you to "have at it" ... and to enjoy "the ride that "hands down" always puts and keeps you in the driver's seat" all by providing Y-O-U -- regardless of your specific role(s) while browsing this Web site's pages -- with a robust set of seamlessly integrated Web accessibility- and Web usability-focused Scsi's Web Site Best Practices on each and every Web page of this Web site.

Why bother to do all this in the first place?

The bottom line reason behind Scsi making the effort was to find ways to completely eradicate (read: avoid by judicious, careful design whenever possible) nearly all of the commonly encountered issues that you'll continue to experience on most Web sites.

In essence, from what is listed above and explained below, all of those types of problems have been removed (read: blown away forever) -- by design -- on the Scsi P&KT Web site, and Y-O-U are the winner. And, Scsi can continue to focus on presenting even more productivity- and knowledge transfer-related topics throughout this Web site. And so it goes.

With this objective in mind, perhaps the best way to proceed is to reinforce for you – quantitatively –just how much in need of improvement (for productivity's sake, if nothing else) so many other Web sites are (read: how they neglect to truly consider putting you first in terms of servicing your Web site browsing expectations).

What's the point of all this effort by Scsi in the first place? In other words, what does providing all of Scsi's Web Site Best Practices do for you, and what does it tell you about the Web site's concern for both establishing and maintaining integrity in the eyes of every one of its visitors? Plenty.

What did Scsi do to reach this "100% accessibility for every visitor" goal?

Here's the multi-level answer:

  1. First, Scsi had to think things through and come up with what would represent a judicious set of Web design criteria that must collectively support the summarial objective of 100% accessibility -- regardless of the type of access Tool chosen -- for all visitors.
  2. Second, Scsi had to resolve to adhere to each and every one of those adopted Web design-related elements.
  3. Third, Scsi had to implement the coding that would manifest the desired "Perfect 10" set of Scsi's Web Site Best Practices -- all this without compromise.
