Invest in long-term customer relationships
Getting the right balance; generate cost savings to invest in building long term, profitable customer relationships.
With current economic pressures, why would you want to spend more where you don’t need to? Cost savings generated from a more efficiently run business give you the opportunity to invest in recruiting new customers and retaining and building existing relationships.
For many banks and building societies, the last few years have seen a tightening of belts and a need to be prudent with spend. At the same time, customer confidence in the banking sector is low, with 68% of customers currently considering an alternative provider. The power and control have slipped from the brand into the hands of the customer. Choices are increasing - supermarket banks, Virgin, Metro bank - and the ways to find a new provider have never been easier.
For many of the more traditional providers this presents many challenges but these can be boiled down to two distinct issues:
- How can I generate cost savings to allow me to invest in new technology?
- How can I make myself stand out from the crowd and build my customer base?

That opportunity still exists today, we just need to listen to what the customer wants and deliver against those needs - in branch, online or through social media.
