Re-envisioning the customer banking experience

Deloitte’s digital bank solution is fundamentally changing customer relationships with new ways to create value. The solution is designed to build in-depth client relationships, enhance productivity, and enable banks to engage more holistically with clients anywhere and on any device. Built on the Salesforce Financial Services Cloud, Deloitte Digital has created a pre-configured digital banking accelerator that will help to enable banks to create value by offering customers banking solutions that are tailored to their individual needs, behaviours, and patterns.

Many banking customers' expectations are changing the way banks interact with them on a daily basis. As a result, new technologies, non-traditional competitors, and regulatory changes are disrupting the banking world, pressured by more and more sophisticated customers. To compete in today’s shifting landscape, it is important for banks to wow their customers with experiences that are genuinely surprising in both their function and appearance. Addressing these changes may require speed and innovation to maintain exceptional customer loyalty and advocacy.

Many banks that are succeeding in today's digital world are transitioning from a product-centric approach to a need-based customer model so that they are well positioned to add value anytime, on any device, as if it were a human interaction.

The evolving nature of digital is dynamically changing the banking experience. For too long retail and commercial banks have been dependent on single applications, which typically offer limited personalisation and no context, limited services insights and assistance, and tend to be disconnected from the customer “hub” with little sharing across channels.

With emerging trends and technology advancements moving to the cloud, digital banking offers new opportunities for creating greater customer value as well as new entry points for competitors. As these competitive online services move up the financial services value chain, digital is rapidly redefining the banking experience and forcing many banks to adapt to customers’ needs that are ever more demanding.

What your customers expect?

Your customers expect you to provide them with the same easy, personalised, transparent, fast, simple and secure digital experience as in other industries and aspects of their lives.

  • Easy to consume - Across channels and devices
  • Personalised and unique - Context-driven solutions, designed to meet client needs

To win customers and keep them, banks may need to reimagine their customer relationship and find new ways to:

  • Engage their customers – genuinely surprise them with services that offer function as well as appearance

  • Make it easy for them – provide a customer service without barriers to make it simple and easy to do business
  • Earn their trust – pro-actively do the right thing to build strong digital relationships

Deloitte Digital Bank built on the Salesforce Financial Services Cloud is designed to help banks create value and address the emerging retail and commercial banking trends and requirements for:

  • Frictionless experiences – allowing customers to interact with banks efficiently and easily across a growing array of internet-connected devices, remembering these interactions, and aligning capabilities across those touch points
  • Personalised services – adopting smart devices when dealing with bank staff online, by phone, or in-branch, providing personalised, informed advice and guidance
  • Transparency when comparing products and services – making it easier than ever for customers to evaluate competitive banking service quality in real time
