Website Redesigns and Secure Glos Credit Union

Website Design in Cheltenham has redesigned and secured the Gloucestershire Credit Union’s site.

Website Design in Cheltenham has redesigns and secured the Gloucestershire Credit Union's site.Website Design in Cheltenham  has already redesigned and built the Stroud Valley Credit Union‘s website in the County so taking over and upgrading the Glos Credit Union (GCU) site was a natural, logical extension of our secure and reliable services.

The existing GCU site had a series of issues which were highlighted when we had a review meeting at cyber security experts GCHQ a few months ago. As a result the Board of the GCU decided that major action was required to update the site to encourage greater customer usage by improving the security and resultant confidence in the site.

Now the website has a secure online application form so that people can apply for loans at their own convenience rather than relaying on slow, paper based applications. Which should also increase the number of applications.

Credit Unions are community organisations that offer a range of financial services to their members. They are locally based and ethically run offering an affordable way to borrow money as well as a safe and secure place to save it. Credit Unions are for everyone and serve everybody’s financial needs.

Credit union members make regular savings, as little or as much as they wish. These savings then form a common pool of money from which loans are made to members. Members who have been saving for a certain period of time (usually about 12 weeks) can apply for a loan at lower interest rates than those without savings. The interest charged on loans is the credit union’s income.

So, if you want your organisation’s website to make you more traffic, leads and sales by improving your security and reputation, please contact us NOW or ring us on now on 01242 521967 to see how we can help you to make money as well!

Website Design vital for helicopter trainers

Website Design Cheltenham is “vital” for Gloucestershire helicopter trainers James Kenwright.

Website Design Cheltenham is "vital" for Gloucestershire helicopter trainers James Kenwright. Two years ago James Kenwright approached us at Website Design Cheltenham to help him build a new site for his business of training helicopter pilots based at Staverton, Gloucestershire airport.

Whilst James had over twenty years experience of training helicopter pilots to pass thier PPL(H), he had always worked for others. Now he wanted to run his own training business.

He also knew that the a website would be the most profitable and practical way to build his business- so he needed someone who was very search engine optimisation (SEO) savvy.

The natural way to find a seo expert was to search Google- which is how he found us. But our SEO expertise was only part of his process- he wanted a local business which could understand his approach- and in whom he could trust and depend.

So after a couple of meetings together we were hired and I’m pleased to say that we have both grown from strength to strength since.

At our annual review meeting recently James commented “Simon has been absolutely vital to my business. We depend on our website to generate new business for us and we have been profitable every single month since my business was formed.”

“Every month we get new applications and new approaches so our business is growing and they are all coming from our website- so Simon’s SEO expertise is pivotal to our business. I’m happy to call them part of the James Kenwright Helicopter Training team.”

Praise indeed!

So, if you want to increase your business and your website’s sales then please contact us NOW or ring us on 01242 521967 now to see how we can help you to make money as well!

Website Design Cheltenham adds Stroud Valleys Credit Union

Website Design in Cheltenham has added Stroud Valleys Credit Union to our roster of clients.

Website Design in Cheltenham has added Stroud Valleys Credit Union to our roster of clientsStroud Valleys Credit Union has had a website for a number of years, but is was not responsive ie will not work across various screens ie computers, notepads and smart phones- and was very difficult for the Credit Union to update.

So they asked us to see if we could help them- which was naturally a pleasure.

We drew up a rough list of requirements which helped the Union draw up a comprehensive content brief.

After presenting a creative template we converted the whole website into a WordPress format. This means that the site is now fully complaint with Google’s Mobile Compatibility tool- as well as being easily able to be updated with their latest news and content changes as required by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)- who regulate them.

After the Credit Union’s management reviewed our redesign results we then provided access and training to key staff members so that they can progress the site on their own- without the need for costly and slow third parties to effect the updates- as well as keeping on the right side of the regulatory authorities.

So, if you want a great ranking website which works on all screens- computers, macs, notepads, smart phones and iPods please contact us now or ring us on 01242 521967 now to see how we can help you to make money as well!
