Salesforce1 for Financial Services
Financial services companies are facing rising pressure as customer’s expectations change. Customers are increasingly buying services from more than one financial institution, and 26 percent of customers are thinking of switching their primary banks because of slow responses, impersonal experiences and disconnected products (according to a 2013 CG42 Retail Banking Brand Vulnerability Study). In this new world of social and mobile applications, customers are demanding financial institutions keep pace by participating in real-time customer service engagement and developing a 1:1 relationship with each customer.
With Salesforce1 for Financial Services, salesforce.com is delivering innovative solutions to address specific industry problems by growing a team of industry experts, developing an ecosystem of partners and creating transformational solutions that leverage the power of the trusted Salesforce1 Platform. Now retail banks, wealth management companies and insurance providers can build lasting relationships with customers by creating the connected experience that every customer expects.
Lead and Referral Engine for Retail Banking
The salesforce.com lead and referral engine for retail banking automates the process of identifying and nurturing prospective clients across every interaction with customer service reps, lenders, bank officers and sales and marketing teams. Leads across any channel including social, mobile and web are captured automatically and tracked, which gives retail banks a single view of all prospective customers.
Through the lead and referral engine, banks now have the tools to build 1:1 relationships with customers by understanding their unique needs and delivering them the right solutions at the right time.
