[login to view URL] and. www.comand.co.uk. - to see [login to view URL] please look in the waybackmachine as old site broke,
If you look at one of our competitors website [login to view URL] - we quite like what that site provides in terms of layout and usability, but we’d like ours to obviously differ as follows
a) Colours blue / red / grey as per our existing site
b) Request a Callback ->. Call Me
c) Request a Quote ->. Quote Request
d) Certifed Installers -> Authorised Brands
e) We need to easily upload photos and text for the sliders section - we want to put the products that we earn most from or like most, including one for Mercedes Retrofits, and clicking on the photo should take us to a suitable page about the product
f) Tabs across middle should be
Home, About Us, Mercedes Benz, Vehicle Products, Authorised Brands, Reviews, News, Contact Us
g) No video section needed, instead of video we should have a photo (of the team or the showroom)
h) The news section should allow us to post stories of recent installs with pictures nice and easily
All car pictures need to have the steering wheel on the right.
Has to pass Google Mobile tests and work with normal variety of web-browsers on PC, Tablet & Mobile, and on current browsers (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Edge, iPad/iPhone/Android and reasonable on IE but no need to be perfect on IE).
Easy for us update and add pages under the menus with pictures.
Each of these things we sell (mentioned above) items should go to their own page where we can add lots of text (but the basics of the page are the same with header with all the tabs, picture, our text, contact form
Footer should be full of links like on banning site
Knowledge Base spec
I want to create a knowledgeable where employees can easily create very short articles *with easily uploadable photos) and read them. When they create an article, they need to put it into one or more categories or subcategories and one of more vehicles or models. This *must* work really well on iPad for upload and reading and on Firefox and Chrome)
For instance, categories will be ’Tracker’ ‘ DashCam’. ’Navigation’.’Parking Sensors' etc
And vehicles will be
(Where Mercedes B is a subcategory of Mercedes, and if you search in Mercedes B you will see articles for "Mercedes B" and for “Mercedes” - Admin has to be able to create categories easily)
I expect the bidder to propose milestones, and discuss what CMS (if it is not WordPress) they want to use and what plugin for the knowledge base part.
