In the highly competitive – and increasingly digital – retail banking industry, products can be very similar from one business to another. That leaves little room to create competitive advantage. Often the determining factor for consumers, when selecting a bank, boils down to trust and customer service.
Banks with good processes for training employees and providing them with the information they need to accurately answer customer questions stand apart. Customer relationships are stronger when customers feel they can trust the information their banks are giving them. That’s why it’s critical for banks to provide the same accurate information across all platforms, from branch, to call center, to digital interface.
Our customer’s existing systems were making it difficult for branch and contact center employees to provide consistent, accurate information to clients and prospective clients.
After standardizing and simplifying documents, they were distributed by role and location. Team members can now perform simple searches and retrieve the exact document they need in seconds. Team members are more engaged as well. They regularly provide feedback to improve work processes and documents.
Since implementing Acadia, the quality of the customer experience has improved, errors have diminished, and team member engagement has increased.
More recently, the company has deployed Acadia to assist in its merger with another bank. By combining the policies, procedures, and job aids from both companies, the enterprise can now more easily identify the best business process tools to use moving forward.
The two merging banks are able to maintain a single source of truth for all team member instructions. They can answer customer questions and concerns with one voice despite their many branches and communication platforms.
