Local security company, Dillard Alarm, had a website built with a template that did not have the extensibility their growing business needed. Metro Nova Creative met with the Dillard team to discuss their needs and created a custom website with the ability to offer online custom price quotes to their customers, bringing the area’s oldest security company into the new era and streamlining the quoting process for their team.
About Dillard Alarm
Dillard Alarm is the oldest security company in Fredericksburg, Virginia. They’ve been securing local homes and businesses since 1979! The Dillard team are committed to community service, and they chose us at Metro Nova Creative for their website upgrade because of our shared commitment to building the community.
Dillard’s had a nice-looking website, but because it was built with a template, Dillard had trouble making the website suit the needs of their business. The built-in blocks looked awkward when filled in with Dillard’s text, and the website was difficult for visitors to navigate. Links to important content were located in two menus, which confused visitors who could not find information they were looking for.
In addition, the website was missing the SEO headers and image tags that would help Dillard rank above its competitors in the search engines.
Partnering for Innovative Solutions
When Dillard’s team met with Metro Nova Creative, they mentioned they spent a lot of time on the telephone offering custom quotes to potential customers. The Metro Nova Creative website design team suggested that they add in the ability to do online custom price quotes right on their website, and this became part of the quote.
During our discussion, Metro Nova Creative suggested that the site be built with the ability for customers to purchase security packages right on the website after receiving a custom quote. Dillard wasn’t quite ready to allow their packages to be paid for online, but they were excited and hoped to do that during a subsequent website update.
Metro Nova Creative built a custom website design package for Dillard Alarm that included :
- online custom price quote capability,
- a fully custom theme designed specifically for their business needs,
