'Clothes make people'. You wouldn't present yourself at an important meeting in a pair of old jeans. Your portal is a public statement, and its design speaks a lot about your company. Do you want to tell your customers
, employees, or suppliers that your company is modern, up to date, embraces change, and cares about the things that make the difference between any company and a great company? Then start thinking about how your portal looks and feels. Get a design that transports your message, get a design that supports mobile devices and get a design that actually makes you want to tell people about your portal.
