Norwich & Peterborough weaves improved website

Norwich & Peterborough Building Society has revamped its website in a bid to make it easier for consumers.

The site has been developed in house to replace its original site launched in October 2000.

The website had only provided information on the society but now includes online applications for banking, mortgages and personal loans.

The society feels it needed to keep pace with consumer demands for an easy-to-navigate and appealing website.

It says the design rings true with N&P&#39s brand values of being simple, modern and progressive.

Head of marketing Jackie McCulloch says: “We believe that this new design will be of great benefit to all our existing and potential customers. We have used the feedback we have gathered from customers to make our website much easier to get around.

“With internet access growing all the time, it is vitally important that everyone who uses a website finds it an easy and satisfying experience and one that they will want to come back to again.”
