Customer interaction solutions for banking

The challenge

Your customers only want everything

Customers have more ways than ever to interact with your bank—in the branch, over the Internet, with a mobile device, at the ATM or through your call center. But complex, redundant systems—often as the result of mergers and acquisitions—can compromise your ability to deliver the right services through the channels they prefer. Multiple IT systems and numerous customer data storage locations can also limit your bank’s ability to cross-sell and up-sell based on customer needs.

 


The solution

Pulling it all together. Making it all work for you.

The customer interaction solutions for banking from IBM are designed to link information from every customer touch point to build a complete view of your relationship with account holders, no matter how they choose to bank. Making this valuable customer information available to all stakeholders, business systems and processes helps you deliver a seamless customer experience across all channels to grow customer loyalty at a time when the value of loyalty is priceless.

These solutions also provide advanced analytics capabilities to turn information into insights to help you understand your customers more completely so you can take a smarter, more profitable approach to meeting their needs. These insights also help you proactively offer products and services of value to them to capture new sales opportunities and enhance the loyalty of existing customers—perhaps turning them into advocates for your bank.
