At Putnam Bank, we are always trying evolve to meet the ever changing demands of our customers. As we are committed to providing the best banking experience possible, we decided it was time to update our website. Not only were we looking for a new design, but also new functionality and a better user experience for our customers and in the back end of the site.
Since we know change can be scary, especially when it involves your financial institution, we wanted to use our first blog post to walk you through the new website. We’ll be pointing out the main areas of the site to help you get comfortable with the new look and feel.
The Top Info Area
There is a ton of information packed in this area at the top of the page. If we have an alert that everyone should know, it will be in red at the very top of the page. Right below that on the left are the date, weather and text resizing and viewing options for those who need help viewing the website. On the right, the secondary navigation items can be easily accessed on any page of the website.
The Main Header
Available on every page of the website, selecting the Putnam Bank logo will take you back to the home page. You can also be taken to any of our social media profiles by selecting the various icon links on the right hand area. We also wanted to make it easy for customers to get a hold of us, so we placed our main number in the header as well. Bonus trick: touch the phone number on your smart phone, and your phone will give you the option to call us.
The Main Navigation
