The challenge

Outdated banking portal

At the time of this project, the client was struggling with an outdated and insecure CMS. Being able to trust its banking portal with sensitive customer data was vital, but existing security measures were falling behind. The company also needed to improve the performance and security of the deposit account sign-up experience. The pre-existing set-up was:


  • not easily testable
  • expensive to maintain
  • not reusable or flexible


It was clear to our client that rebuilding the intranet was crucial for the company’s ongoing competitiveness.

The solution

Complete portal overhaul

To help our client reach its business goals, we decided to rebuild the front- and back-end of the portal in Umbraco.


Our developers also introduced an upgraded “Quick Quote” feature. This service automatically suggested different loan terms for people who wouldn’t normally be eligible for a loan. The feature was immensely successful from the moment it hit the market, making the client £1 million in the first three months.


In order to further support our client, we introduced automation of software infrastructure deployments. This included creating Azure web apps that provided application insights and Azure SQL databases on a common infrastructure pipeline.

The benefits

Award-winning security

The primary benefit of this Umbraco solution was reduced security risk. This meant the company’s sensitive data was protected from potential attacks. We were also able to introduce a highly profitable Quick Quote feature to the market on the client’s behalf.


Overall, the business benefits of this digital portal refurbishment were:


  • time saved and increased sales
  • achieved total data protection
  • reduced site maintenance costs
  • supported effective working through automation


From secure development to technical support, we helped this client transform its business efficiency and productivity in the long term.
