Above all things, your website delivers information to its audiences and your users. How effectively it delivers that information will determine whether users take the actions you want them to, fulfilling their goals.
Akendi innovates in creating information architectures (IA) for corporate web portals, intranets, enterprise portals, ecommerce websites, and social networking sites to ensure that the information is designed in a meaningful and efficient way. One IA deliverable is a site map that shows the content of your website in effective & efficient collections. We use this rich information to create the interaction design of a web portal and customer portal.
Web Portals, Intranet & Customer Portals
Based on an innovative design process and industry best practices, we will research users & customers and create an effective IA for your web portal, customer portal or intranet.
We will begin by understanding your business goals, requirements, and vision for the web portal or intranet.

Based on this user research, we will:
- Develop labelling and nomenclature for content structure, page navigation, contextual links, etc.
- Inform the IA further through card sorting
- Develop a final structure or site map that provides the content hierarchy and web portal, intranet content structure.
- the next step is interaction design, visual design and specification for coding.
