Customer needs are constantly changing. Keeping up with their expectations is an unquestionable challenge for banks. Why is that? Banks struggle with technical staff shortages, which results in a slow time-to-market of the application development process. Thus, banks cannot respond dynamically to the different needs of people.
Also, pandemics and the decreasing number of branches have affected customer service. Undoubtedly, the challenge for banks is to improve their service channels.
What if banks could use an off-the-shelf solution to meet all their customer’s expectations faster and improve customer experience?
Be closer to your customers anytime, anywhere thanks to the remote branch
The last three years have accelerated the process of change in the bank customers’ habits. The previously cited pandemic and fewer branches pushed people to use digital channels more often than ever.
We are banking remotely, and it is how we want to handle most of our today’s tasks and financial responsibilities.
What is more, we pay more attention to customer service. We do not want to talk to chatbots. We prefer human interactions, and we want to have the possibility of resolving all our issues anytime (24/7), wherever we are.
That is why FINANTEQ created Pocket Branch – a virtual branch solution. Our product makes the digital transition smooth and combines the advantages of physical branches and remote channels.
Pocket Branch is an easy-to-use tool for your customers, allowing them to “visit” banks without going to a brick-and-mortar branch in person. The service enables banks to communicate with their customers and vice-versa in the most convenient way via video, audio, or text chat.
Quickly responding to people’s needs is essential today. Transferring good experiences from brick-and-mortar branches to remote channels is necessary to ensure a superb customer experience. Banks that are able to solve customers’ problems right away will win the market.
No-code a future that is happening now
Banks are getting used to continue offering their services through digital channels and being closer to their customers than ever before. However, the industry experiences previously mentioned challenges regarding extending digital services.
Fortunately, Finanteq designed a solution that helps to overcome mentioned challenges. A no-code platform – Extentum, it’s a tool that allows banks to extend digital banking services quickly and effectively within hours without the high cost and time-consuming developers’ engagement.
To give you a hint, how it works. The bank wants to launch a holiday loan promotion fast. In our experience, classic implementation can take quite a long time. But with Extentum, it takes just hours.
After integration with the bank’s systems, thanks to Extentum, a non-IT person can create a loan offer in just 3 simple steps, which are available on the backend application:
- Step #1: Setting the entry points.
- Step #2: Targeting the audience.
- Step #3: Creating an interaction scenario.
The result achieved in this use-case thanks to this super-easy configuration:
John just bought a holiday trip. How do we know that? He made a money transfer to a travel agency. What is more, his account balance dropped below 5 000 USD. These two factors were set up as entry points to trigger the promotion. That means he will see a pop-up window on his screen with a customized message: “Hi John, looking for extra holiday money”?
By clicking pre-defined answers, he follows up on the scenario and takes the loan within a few taps.
Of course, it’s just one potential scenario of Extentum usage. Are you wondering about more? Download the Extentum Product Overview.
