Arbor Financial Credit Union (formerly Educational Community CU) sought a better way to meet the needs of its members and provide easier site management, as well as support key business goals. To achieve this, the new site architecture was simplified and streamlined to provide an intuitive and easy customer journey.

To understand member satisfaction, the site also needed to offer the ability to collect feedback about member experiences via a custom form.
Community Colleges of Spokane (CCS) is a district that includes two community colleges: Spokane Community College and Spokane Falls Community College. All three websites were developed in parallel and launched simultaneously. To create websites that would satisfy the client’s long-term goals, High Monkey migrated the former websites from Kentico 5 to Kentico 10, while content migration has been done within Kentico Cloud. An important area of this project is an integration with Funnelback Search, which provides a powerful search tool that delivers user-centric search results. Funnelback also performs as a ‘Content Hub’ that aggregates content and delivers it via Kentico to one or more of the CCS websites.
DAS UK is in the process of digital transformation. The legal expenses insurance market is confusing, with little understanding of the product by consumers and no great engagement amongst brokers and intermediaries who are the main sales channel for the products.

Kentico provides a single platform for the group as well as GDPR support and advanced workflows for Compliance.
