Banking with WordPress: A Community Bank Bangladesh PLC Case Study

Community Bank Bangladesh PLC was also suffering from a severe UX and website speed problem that let down their online banking and credit card services. Here is a brief overview of how we helped to redesign and improve their website through a UX audit, interface redesign, and continuous, agile WordPress Development. From this it was seen that the load time was halved, that the session length was increased by a quarter, and the conversion rates for certain key services were up by one fifth.


Community Bank Bangladesh PLC stands as a significant entity in the Bangladeshi banking sector, renowned for its diverse array of retail banking and credit card services. As a subsidiary of the Bangladesh Police Kallyan Trust, the bank is dedicated to offering customized, secure financial solutions while upholding the highest standards of corporate governance. Its mission is to foster economic growth nationwide by delivering financial products and services to various communities.

The bank leverages a state-of-the-art Core Banking System to ensure centralized, efficient operations. Community Bank Bangladesh PLC operates on three fundamental principles: Trust, Security, and Progress.
