With Walt Disney to MoSCoW to INVEST SMARTly
At web-vision, Walt Disney is not only known for its comics, but a method for requirements elicitation in the context of requirements engineering. MoSCoW is also much more than just a city in Russia for us, but a method for prioritizing requirements. For the specification in the context of a user story we use, together with our customers, the INVEST method to provide this with acceptance criteria for the development according to the SMART principle.
Scrum and TYPO3 certified employees
At web-vision we permanently focus on the education and training of our employees. The qualification and certification of our employees in the various areas of TYPO3 development is therefore a matter of course and indispensable for us. As of 09/2023, our employees have a total of 18 Scrum and TYPO3 certifications as TYPO3 Certified Editor (TCCE), Integrator (TCCI), Developer (TCCD), Consultants (TCCC) and Scrum Product Owners.
Professional project and budget controlling
Projects are considered successful if they have met the desired requirements and delivered on time and on budget. On the individual project dashboards, web-vision customers can always find the current budget usage in the individual development epics. Daily time tracking on user stories and tasks, are automatically evaluated at specific thresholds and notify developers, project management and customers. Documented budget reconciliations take place together with customers, project managers and, if desired, with the development teams.
Multi-stage TYPO3 development and publishing system
web-vision's established multi-stage development with isolated development systems, separate preview and acceptance instances and productive environments publish developments through Continuos Integration without any downtime. Automated code and smoktests secure code releases and can automatically roll back entire deployments within seconds in case of failure.
Free SEO monitoring
web-vision has been a Sistrix partner for years. Customers receive free SEO monitoring and regular SEO reports, which are also discussed in the regular jour fixes. Additional reports, optimized for the relevant website KPIs, can be requested on demand.
Conversion and KPI-driven development
New and further development of online stores or websites is often driven purely by design aspects and opinions. Not infrequently, conversions or important performance indicators for the success of a website are disregarded. At web-vision we think for our customers, we proactively recommend changes to increase conversion and performance.
24/7 Server and TYPO3 Monitoring
The permanent and regular monitoring of the servers, software packages, applications and TYPO3 instances managed by web-vision is a standard part of any project support. This way our admins and developers know early about resource bottlenecks, upcoming security updates or even potential attacks.

Networking in the TYPO3 community
web-vision employees are strongly networked in the TYPO3 community and are therefore able to establish direct contact "in the shortest possible way" with well-known community members, extension authors and TYPO3 Association members, both with regard to TYPO3 Core or extension concerns.
Core-oriented TYPO3 development
TYPO3 is a powerful tool and content management system. The strategy of core-related development pursued by web-vision avoids, as far as possible, the use of unnecessary extensions in order to be able to carry out upgrades in an efficient and budget-friendly way. Maintenance and further development are thus consistently aligned with the future development of the TYPO3 core. Our customers thus benefit from leaner and easier-to-maintain systems that also require less training.

In addition, web-vision offers accessibility audits and provides improvement approaches for existing websites and helps online editors of TYPO3 systems with implementation through training and documentation.
