Site design - ours and yours!
Our site is designed with three objectives in mind:
- to let visitors know what Business before Technology does, and some of the
how, why and who-with
- to be easy to use by adopting "best practises" and
user dialogues from the best sites of the Web
- to look attractive but not distractive from the
business purpose (sorry about the corrupted English)
with the overall aim of showing you by example what we
believe is appropriate for an I.T. services company to have
as a presence on the Internet.
Because a lot of what you might want to know about us is across several
Web pages we are keeping links to different pages as low profile until you
have seen them - they will then be seen in a bright blue so that you can
recognise them and also remember the content that those links represent.
This is only one style of Web design we have obviously used many
others appropriate to their business context.
What if you don't like the way that these pages are laid out?
Your company may need something completely different
to these pages but rather than try to pre-judge what that might be
we offer to demonstrate the look and feel of any other site that you have
seen on the Web as part of our proposal to your company.
That way you can see that we have the capability and you get to refine
what you want at a very early stage.
Bear in mind that different types of business
have very different target audiences and even with similar audiences
the layout, style, interactivity and many other aspects of the site
will depend completely on the purpose(s) that the site is being used for.
Please however note that we are not betraying our company principles
and even it's name.
We cannot stress strongly enough that decisions about
technology should always be a late phase in any project,
however it is reasonable that a customer gains confidence in us as a
potential supplier by a variety of means - this prototyping is a method
that can greatly assist that aim.
At Business before Technology, we take pride in being open-minded but will always
call out to the project sponsor what we believe is in the best interests
of the business even if that is contentious.
At the end of the day (/project!), you, the project sponsor are the sole
arbiter of how your business proposition should be deployed and
portrayed on the Web! and if 3D spinning dice is what
you feel is appropriate on the home page - so-be-it.
