GLN Consulting has redesigned its interactive website to make it more user-friendly. The original design of our website in 2003 was intended to enable GLN Consulting to offer consulting services that were both convenient and inexpensive. When all consulting activities are conducted online, there are no additional expenses, such as travel. The client interface tool was developed to make our services more convenient by providing the client with continuous access to the consultant throughout the course of the consulting process (e.g. the duration of the course being taught). Through this online interactive dialog, the client and consultant could cooperate to tailor the use of student engagement in explanatory modeling activities to suit both teacher and student needs. In 2007, the GLN Consulting store was added to the website to enable clients to purchase our services online. It was attached to the website through a link to the services page. Clients accessed it by clicking on an icon at the bottom of the page.
The new website was redesigned to retain these advantages while making it easier for clients to navigate. On the old site, clients would go to different webpages to obtain our services and to access and use the client interface. To obtain our services, they would click on “New Clients” where they would provide relevant information and choose a password that they later use to login to the “Current Clients” page where they access and use the client interface. On the new redesigned site, clients go to the “Contact” page to obtain our services and to access and use recommendations from GLN Consulting. No password is necessary. We have also added A Zopim chat widget to provide a place for client and consultant to discuss the recommendations at a time agreed on by client and consultant. On the old site, the descriptions of the service packages and pricing were contained in the store. On the new site, the packages are described on the services page along with pricing, and clients click on the “BUY” button to purchase them.
We hope that you enjoy the work that we’ve put into the redevelopment of our website.
