What’s your number one problem as a web developer? Do you have problems coding html? Problems with css? Problems with design, or creativity? Probably not. If you’re like many of the people who use Jumpchart, you’re plenty competent at your job. The area that makes your life miserable is content gathering, and client communication.
And on top of all that, you have to know what goes where, and somehow show your plans to the client. Even those tasks might not be so bad if clients didn’t change their minds so often! You need a flexible planning system that helps you collaborate on the piece of web dev that is the biggest sore spot for developers; content gathering and organization.
We built Jumpchart to be the first step in website development. Before you pick a CMS, before you push pixels, before you do IA work, you have to understand how big your site is, and what type of content it will contain. To properly design a site, you have to understand its breadth, depth, and unique traits.
When you’re done planning Jumpchart has one big trick left. You can export your whole site full of planned content as XHTML, or the most universal exchange format for CMS’s WordPress WXR. For many developers that means huge amounts of time and frustration saved.
We think if you give Jumpchart just one try in your workflow, you’ll realize it fills a need you’ve had all along.
