The homepage provides the one-stop overview and should answer most users general information requirements about the business such as: what we do, where we work, opportunities, vision and values. It will also include a regularly updated news feed. Tabs will include Services, Portfolio, Company. A link will be included to Blog page (a 3rd party site to be activated later and not included in this brief). There will also be login to an intranet/collaboration portal (usr+pass, Login, Join, for a client, contractor, staff). The collaboration portal will be a 3rd party site to be activated later and is not included in this brief. The homepage will also offer Newsletter signup (client, contractor, staff) etc ... and links to archives as well as subscriber links to Facebook, LinkedIn etc.
The Services tab will provide an overview of our services with links to relevant staff and projects.
The Portfolio tab will provide a sorted list of projects (by date, service type, country, client) we have undertaken with links to project briefs. A graphic of the globe will show where our projects have been with click on links to projects sorted by country.
The Company tab will provide history of the business, the staff and associates, links to CVs, contact details, contact form, more details on opportunities etc ...
The Blog link will link to a 3rd party blog site for my rants and is not included in this brief.
Ideally I'd do this on one page. I'm not sure exactly what constitutes a page in terms of the budget? (versus a tab or window etc ...).
