Solutions monitoring sales should provide answers to key questions concerning the current execution of activity and goals along with the possibility to quickly change the perspective from transaction to business line. They should also help in planning and forecasting the result.

Credit risk evaluation models

Case studies

Bank in Asia

Goal:

Implementation of strategy for dynamically increasing the number of customers, volumes of credits, and incomes in the SME banking in one of the best banks in one of countries.

Challenge:

High costs of provisions in business banking in the near past and high level of grey area, which have an exceptionally negative impact on the quality of financial data of customers. Bank’s organisational structure is not adjusted to service business customers. Lack of sales model, determined customer segments, offer dedicated for business customers, and pricing policy. Support processes are completely discretionary.

Solution:

Reorganisation of organisational structure from the level of departments in the head office to operational positions in the field. Elaboration of concept of product offer and mixed sales and service channels (via telephone, electronically, and with the help of a consultant). Preparation of goals and motivation system cascade. Elaboration of sales standards and first sales tools.

Bank in Europe

Goal: 

Construction and validation of a new concept for online business model.

Challenge:

Lack of uniform idea for the execution of an initiative. Big number of initiatives inside of the bank. Need for elaboration of one consistent concept and verification with the market before the project is started and a greater investment is done. Stepping into shoes of a target customer.

Solution:

Work based on the design thinking tools. Work on trends and inspirations from markets inside and outside of the bank. Analysis of competition and benchmark initiatives from the market. Work with group of target customers to find frustrations and values, which translated into a new, unique value proposal. Construction of a prototype and its verification with the market.
