Homepage - Initial Search criteria
- Purpose is to establish confidence (not confusion), show "ease of use", display search fields for initial search. Also to provide access to statistics (industry knowledge)
Search Result (map view)
- display search results on a map (we can provide the code for this), with ability to tweak search results without changing pages. Purpose of this is to maintain confidence and provide geo-spacial awareness
Theme - IronHub is the industry's aggregated marketplace for oilfield equipment.
The goal here is to provide a marketplace that allows oilfield equipment buyers to have confidence in their ability to exhaust all inventory options out there...
The theme here needs to be the same as Trivago, Expedia, Kayak - which is that we are an aggregate resource.
