Deciding to center our attention on the search. Putting currency rates and calculating tools on the main page to speed up calculations. Using color coding to improve readability. Simplifying the grid by changing the number of columns to three.

Why does the logo occupy so much space? An internal corporate website can do without it. Deciding to use the space more effectively. Replacing the logo with a small header. Discovering that no one uses the panel to switch between sections. Transforming it into a dropdown menu. Optimizing the main page content and abridging it. Adding a corporate news section.
