To provide a knowledge bank that provides co-ordinated, effective first-class business advice, funding and support services across Greater Birmingham and Solihull area.
We were tasked with delivering an easy to use, navigable, interactive knowledge bank solution through a new online GBSLEP Business Growth Hub website, offering both mobile phone functionality and social media channels to provide all businesses with access to a large range of information, help and support.
We started by creating an in-depth site map which allowed us to build a comprehensive and user-friendly navigation system on the website, including both images and text. With our third party integration work, we were able to pull content from major websites into the site, such as HMRC and Gov.uk, without the user having to leave our site, but also not tasking work to populate and manage forward.
The GBSLEP Growth Hub was recently launched by Mark Sayers, Deputy Director, Business Productivity and Growth Programmes, Department for Business Innovation and Skills, and Saqib Bhatti, Director of GBSLEP and president of the Asian Business Chamber of Commerce. After a successful launch and a number of enquiries, the website is already set to meet, if not beat its 2015-2016 targets.
