Change Management Specialist
In 2018, HSBC initiated a digital transformation project for their corporate banking portal, a global platform used by clients for payment processing, trade finance applications, and shipment tracking. The project aimed to refresh the portal's design while introducing significant user experience enhancements.
To facilitate this change and improve user understanding, NetPlus, a change management tool, was conceived. It involved the creation of instructional videos showcasing the evolving portal and its functionality. My role was pivotal in developing these videos, designing the content management system (CMS) to host them, and making them accessible through the portal, a dedicated website, and a chatbot.
My responsibilities encompassed various aspects, including:
Video creation, involving coordination with both internal and agency teams.
Content management, ensuring seamless video integration.
Copywriting for web and video scripts to convey clear and concise instructions.
Taxonomy and tagging to optimise content discoverability.
Role: Content Strategy
In total, approximately 200 videos were meticulously crafted, spanning five languages, to cater to a diverse global audience. The website's dynamic display capabilities were tailored to user permissions and specific corporate banking services, ensuring relevant content delivery. This extensive video and web content library demanded translation into five languages: Cantonese, Mandarin, French, Canadian French, and Mexican Spanish. Our team handled audio recording in Canary Wharf studios, while voiceover agencies supported additional recordings.
The introduction of instructional videos significantly eased the transition for clients using the corporate banking portal, enhancing their overall experience and understanding of the platform's changes.
Successful coordination of video creation across multiple languages.
Development of a user-friendly CMS for efficient content management.
Effective translation and localisation of content for global accessibility.
This project underscored the importance of proactive change management in digital transformations, emphasizing clear communication through multimedia tools.
