How we did it

Phase one

Hileman conducted a detailed audit of the website of First Federal Lakewood, one of FMHC’s affiliates, to understand the client’s needs on a deeper level. During this process, we created a plan to accommodate the client’s future growth, while offering ongoing support for its current business needs.

Phase two

Using Kentico’s web content management system, we designed and built visually engaging templates – complete with a products and services carousel – that could be used across all affiliate websites. Additionally, we created a content repository that allowed us to reorganize content and apply it to multiple sites.

Phase three

After the site went live, we began supporting and maintaining it.
