What do you want to include.
Important things which user should have easy access are:
1. Search (This should be visible throughout whole site)
2. Practice Purchase list (PPL like a favourites list)
3. Products on Specials.
Other things on home page (however designer like to display):
Basket info/icon – to include if $ amount and number of items in basket if goods have been selected for purchase.
Supplier’s icons (ability for this to vary from no supplier icons to 20 icons)
Links to Reports, Budget info/icon, user profile, Order history (called Order Central), Help and Logout (of course).
Is there anything else you would like to communicate to the designers?
FYI we only need to design home page of our online ordering site not the full website.
Users will have already registered and logged in to the portal before they reach the ecommerce landing page.
Similar to other online ordering websites we have usual elements in our website. E.g. Search, Favourites Lists (called Practice Purchase List or PPL), Basket, Products on Special offers, Suppliers, check out, Categories and order history etc.
Some unique items are Budget, Reports.
Up to 60 000 products are listed on the portal of which a practice will order 200-300 products on a regular reoccurring basis. The search function, the Practice Purchase list and Specials are to be given the highest priority in the design. Typically a user would come to home page either go to PPL or search for products or view specials products and navigate away from one of these spots or another as required by user.
The portal platform is used for more than one use with some features not appearing on all versions: budget, reports and suppliers. These must be presented in such a way that if they are not included on the version that they will not disrupt the home page look.
1. We only need to design home page (landing page) of our online ordering website not the full website.
2. This page does not require login. Users have already logged in and then they will see the home page which is required to be designed in this contest.
3. Inspirational Websites are left empty to encourage designers to follow latest trends in the ecommerce (online shopping) industry while they design the page.
