Client required a web toolbar having a complete list of directories pertaining to Business, Shops,Locations, Verticals, Industry, Restaurants, Hotels etc. The toolbar will act as a complete Online Location Guide on web.

Client acquires a famous local search engine website. Further, he expects the similar feature of the website to be replicated with its Web Toolbar. The purpose is to let each user who has installed the toolbar to easily navigate to any information or location through a single click.

Toolbar for Local Business Directory is specifically designed for the users who want their search refined within minimal clicks. It displays the result quickly and helps users to navigate with pre-defined search options provided in the toolbar. Functional features of this toolbar are as follows:

    Home Website Logo: Clicking on the logo the user will be redirected to client’s official website.

    City: User can refine the search by city. Select from the list of nearby state available and the toolbar will display it in the grid.

    What? : Text Box allows an automatic generated record to refine the user’s search.

    Where? : Depending on the City and the Selection, user gets a list of locations found in that predefined locations/areas etc.

    Restaurants: Button has been given. On clicking the button, the page will be redirected to the list of recommended restaurants applied in the client’s Database Server.

    Themes Change: User can change the background color scheme with the help of Toolbar Settings.

Project Challenges

Team faced the following challenges:
  • A complete installer which is being embedded with a huge range of client’s database had to be integrated properly.
  • Theme Function had to work on the basis of the Toolbar Settings feature and was completely dynamic.
  • Biggest challenge for us was to create sync between the Toolbar and the client’s website because each record and entry is inter-related with each other and information is being displayed dynamically.
  • Auto-Suggestion of data filtering on a single click and the selection relative to data should get displayed in the required order to provide pre-defined choices for the user to select the required information.

Planning

  • Later Installer Steps were designed and defined as very simple and easy to use.
  • A couple of images required by the client had to fit within the area of the toolbar.
  • The first step towards planning involved graphical representation of the toolbar. The design was made appealing and easy to navigate by any user.
  • Next step was to research on auto-suggestion features for all the fields provided in the toolbar.
  • The toolbar was made compatible with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox Browsers. It was made compatible with all browser and Window’s versions.
