The Rhode Island web development company created websites for both Independence Bank and their Loans 4 Women program.

Warwick, RI - February 23, 2015 - Independence Bank, located in East Greenwich, RI, came to Brave River Solutions in need of a full redesign of their main Independence Bank website, as well as a new website for their Loans 4 Women program. They wanted both sites to be easily viewable on all mobile phones, tablets and desktop computers.

In addition to giving Independence Bank’s website a completely new, modern look with responsive design (which makes the site accessible to all devices), Brave River built the redesigned site on the latest version of the BRS Content Management System. With the former Independence Bank website, any changes to the text or images required assistance from a web developer. The new CMS, however, makes it easy for Independence Bank to manage and update their own site content, giving them more freedom and flexibility.

The newly redesigned website provides information on Independence Bank’s many service offerings and account types, to help new or existing customers learn more about which banking services best suit their needs. It also includes a custom-developed Contact form, which includes a field for customers to let the bank know how they found the website. This information helps Independence Bank track the effectiveness of their advertising campaigns and marketing efforts.

Brave River Solutions also helped Independence Bank create an entirely new website for their Loans 4 Women program, which offers small business loans to women-owned businesses. The Loans 4 Women site uses the same responsive design and CMS technologies as the Independence Bank site, but also includes a custom form where business owners can apply for a loan online.

“The web design team at Brave River Solutions created current-looking designs for both www.independence-bank.com and www.loans4women.com that reflected our services in a clear and straightforward manner,” said Staci Ferreira, Operations Supervisor at Independence Bank. “It was very important to us that customers be able to securely enter their information on our online forms, and Brave River took care of that by providing multiple methods of data security and encryption."

As the Loans 4 Women application form includes personal data, Independence Bank required high-level encryption to keep their loan customers safe. The web developers at Brave River used Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security technology in addition to extensive server and database encryption to ensure that all data transmitted via the application form is secure and protected.

Independence Bank is a world-class bank offering superior service, competitive rates, and great products for business and personal banking needs. They are a full-service bank, owned by longtime East Greenwich residents. Independence Bank’s programs include Loans 4 Women, Cool Cash Connect and Cool Deposit. Independence Bank is chartered by the FDIC.
