The shortest route to information for entrepreneurs

A functional blueprint for www.vlaanderenonderneemt.be

The portal enables entrepreneurs to find relevant information and stay up to date so that they don’t have to wade through a plethora of websites. A lot of entrepreneurs use desktop or laptop computers to go online but in the multi- device world of today it’s self-evident that the portal should be easily accessible via the most commonly used devices: desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone. 

Human Interface Group’s global task was to deliver a functional blueprint of the portal, in cooperation with inno.com who took care of the technical analysis.

  • Agentschap Ondernemen carries out Flanders economical policy and is responsible for its operational preparation. Agentschap Ondernemen regards it as its mission to reduce administrative overhead and always help entrepreneurs out as efficiently as possible. 

  • As an entrepreneur in Flanders, finding information online and staying up to date on governmental regulations and initiatives can be hard. Interesting information is distributed over several websites, which makes it often difficult to know where to go and -once you’re there- to find what you’re looking for. Hence, the idea to create a new portal for entrepreneurs in Flanders as the shortest route to all the relevant information sites was born.

  • Knowing that entrepreneurs are struggling with finding information is one thing, but getting a good grasp on the exact problems they are confronted with, how those problems can be solved and how the solution can be communicated throughout the organization is another matter. 

  • Thanks to our UX-focused functional analysis, the blueprint for the portal provides insight into these problems. It is a highly detailed, visually rich and technically sound document, the latter thanks to the profound technical study by inno.com.  

  • The website is designed completely responsive, so we also created apt design patterns to ensure that future multi-device access of the portal was assured.
