    1. These pages will also serve as marketing campaign destinations/landing pages

Project Requirements

  • Give individual branches control over aspects of their local presence
  • Enable discovery of local services based on distance, zip code, and consideration for unique services (ATM availability/hours, Video Teller, Drive Up services, and Loan Production Offices)

  • Centralized, purpose-built tool to manage and scale all local marketing and online presence activities
  • Enables the corporate marketing team to implement regional, and even location-specific marketing programs on behalf of branches.
  • Ability to easily add and remove Local Pages
  • Improve per-location reporting
  • Deploy the Location Finder and Local Pages on the main domain.
    • Example: 
      • www.bankdomainname.com/locations/<location_name_here>/

Winning the Opportunity
Main Domain Deployment:
Because this bank is hosting their website on CloudFlare and on CloudFlare's enterprise plan it was easy to enable a system override to publish the Location Finder and Local Pages on their main domain. The result is that the bank’s corporate website can continue to grow on Acquia’s Cloud Platform, while the Local Pages and Location Finder are built and managed on the DevHub platform. 
The result is that the customer experience on the site is a seamless experience for the user. Our platform syncs with the bank’s header and footer on Acquia to maintain the look/feel of the bank’s online experience across platforms

Location Finder: 
Easily implemented the search and filtering options required by the financial institution’s stakeholders. The location finder also features an interactive map customized with pins designed to adhere to the bank’s look and feel along with custom information boxes when a user clicks on a pin with call-to-actions to get more information or get directions.

Local Pages:
Built and configured a Local Pages template per the project’s requirements with the modules that can be toggled on/off based on the services available in each branch.

The modules are:

  • Contact Info, address, and phone number(s)
  • Get Directions call-to-action complete with embedded Google Map
  • Location Hours (Lobby and ATM)
  • Services available at the location
  • An “About This Location” content section
  • The latest news published on the site blog
  • Embedded customer reviews
  • Brand video 
  • An FAQ section
  • Nearby locations

Thanks to the DevHub platform’s flexibility, and the enterprise technology partners - Cloudflare and Acquia - already powering this financial institution; this project was scoped, built, delivered, and completed in 3 weeks!
