Calgary Website Development

Think of Web Development as Web Design Supercharged.  With Web Design, there is limited interactivity or utility and the purpose of a website is to optimize on Google search, deliver information and activate linear (in most cases) conversion.

With Web Development, a website gets much more depth and becomes a platform.  Businesses can leverage these platforms to offer tools, forums, e-learning, commerce, profile/segmentation, client / guest experiences and full software as a service solution in a multi-layer web experience.

Your Calgary Web Development Specialists

Our team of experienced web developers have been building enterprise level platforms for businesses of all sizes for over a decade. We understand that web development requires extensive planning, investment and iteration. Through our Samurai platform, we have developed a delivery system that empowers us to build large scale systems at twice the speed and a fraction of the cost.

We apply four principals or KPI’s into our implementation roadmap to ensure client success. These are:

  • Planning and Structure
  • Persona / User Stories
  • User Experience
  • Scalability

When selecting a partner for your web development project here is what you should consider:


Technical Capabilities and Experience

Does this developer or team have the skills to create my platform? Have they done it before?

Through our Connect library, StyleLabs has built platforms for a variety of clients across many industries. These include:

  • A sign ordering & logistics management platform for a Real Estate Signage Company.
  • A Software as a Service platform designed to manage, track and record inspection data for a major pressure vessel manufacturer in Alberta with over 13,000 assets.
  • An online social network & e-learning platform for fitness enthusiasts. Delivering daily workouts, newsfeeds and a custom friending system to facilitate communication between members and create community.
  • A Canada-wide research and flash polling community with over 100,000 members. Including a friend and audience building tool.
  • An HR system designed to grow a repository of over 30,000 applicants that dynamically created resumes / profiles through a dynamic wizard. Employers could leverage this service as a software as a service and be dynamically matched to ideal skilled trades candidates based on demographic and psychographic segmentation.

Understanding of User Experience, Conversion and Persona Development:

Understanding your audience, creating user stories and knowing how to convert that audience into clients, evangelists or into active community members is just as important as building the actual architecture.

StyleLabs employs a full time research team that includes RIVA trained moderators specializing in persona development, user experience / interface experts and QA’s / testers. We don’t start developing platforms until a full due diligence and research campaign has been undertaken, wireframes created and validated with the core audience. This maximizes probability of success while minimizing margin of error.

Budget Allocation


How much do I have? How much will this realistically cost? What is the cost of maintenance?

In the initial consultation period, the Business Analyst and Web Team will work together to create a functionality specific budget with high level user stories and intended outcomes. Over our last 20 projects we have delivered on budget (+/- 15%). Our administration team tracks budget on a weekly basis and changes in scope are documented and scheduled to manage expectations and ensure transparency.

Will my partner be around to maintain, upgrade and enhance my platform?

This is StyleLabs’ tenth year in business with an average growth rate of 25-30% over the past year, our team has doubled in size. As part of your experience, once your platform is launched, our post launch team will assume responsibility for all secondary engagements including hosting, maintenance, updates and upgrades. 100% of the clients we have built enterprise platforms for continue to work with StyleLabs.

What can you expect when you partner with StyleLabs on your next Web Development project?

  1. Consultation: Discovery, Budgeting, Detailing and Functionality Definition, User Stories and Journey.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Frequently Asked Questions

Every project has different timelines depending on scope, functionality and commitment levels / availability from clients. A typical project takes 100-300 hours of development and 50-100 hours of design, project management, research and strategy.

Once a project is quoted, the primary scope is firmed. Any additional requirements are presented in a secondary scope. Timelines are determined based on level of effort, milestones, business need and project velocity. Clients will have the option to extend their delivery date or complete the secondary scope in a subsequent phase.

A retainer of 25% is due upon approval. Each month, hours completed are reconciled on month end and due upon receipt. This ensures accounts are kept current and there isn't a significant liability on either side at the end of the project.
