The client (Brighton & Hove City Council) objective's for the site is to attract new businesses to the city, bring in new prospects and retain and develop current businesses within the city and surrounding areas.
The site will be used to dispel negative perception about the city as a place to do business and educate users in what makes the city a great place to do business. It will also be used to provide a clear communication channel for business to contact the city to enquire about moving, starting up or growing in the city.
Drupal was chosen for this project as the client is government funded (Brighton and Hove City Council) so an open-source platform was the best choice. The client also want to manage their content themselves and also required custom functionality throughout the site.
The website will be heavily published through the council and throughout the city, along with critics (including councillors, local business leaders and influencers) using the site and promoting it through their own media channels.
