DSL Business Finance

fuzzylime was invited to tender to develop a new website for DSL Business Finance, a Glasgow-based company that offers fixed-rate loans to small businesses and social enterprises.
DSL had an existing website that provided some information but was confusing to use and didn't communicate what the company was about very well.
We won the tender and worked with the company's stuff to come up with a design that met their needs, being bright and attractive while still communicating large amounts of information clearly and easily.
We also developed a number of add-ons for the site, including a client directory, a testimonials system (which includes a module whereby a testimonial is chosen at random for the front page each time it is loaded) and a loan calculator, allowing people to get an idea of how much their repayments will be immediately.
We also upgraded a system allowing people to start their loan application online, collecting useful information and integrating this with the firm's existing databases, and automatically e-mailing potential customers with more information.
How it works
The site now runs on fuzzylime (cms+), the first time the company's site has been run by such a system. This means that, going forward, DSL staff can log in and update all of the content on the site themselves.
The specialist plugins, such as the testimonials and client directory systems, are also managed through the CMS, giving a one-stop shop where every part of the site can be managed.
