Accenture and Backbase, a provider of customer experience management technology solutions, have entered into an alliance in financial services to enable banking clients to improve customer engagement through digital channels.
Under the agreement, the companies will leverage Backbase’s wide range of customer experience management technology solutions and Accenture’s banking industry expertise and capabilities, including digital distribution and marketing strategy and core banking services. The companies will focus on providing banks with an end-to-end solution to support their digital transformation strategy, helping them cost-efficiently optimize digital sales, increase customer loyalty and enhance operational efficiency.
The solution is based on Backbase Customer Experience Platform, a full-service digital channels management platform that helps banks organize, create and manage customer experiences across any device and channel. The platform features a complete set of integrated customer experience management functions, including dynamic content development and digital marketing campaign creation across multiple channels without the involvement of IT teams. The platform can be integrated with any existing banking IT systems, reducing implementation time, effort and risk.
“Leading banks no longer think of themselves as mere providers of financial products and services and enablers of transactions,” said Juan Pedro Moreno, senior managing director of Accenture’s global Banking practice, in a statement. “They will be providers of solutions, playing a greater role not just at the moment of transaction, but before and afterwards as well, aspiring to be at the center of the digital life of their customers. We refer to this as the ‘Everyday Bank’ strategy, a vision that calls for a new way of thinking about the role of banks in the digital era. The alliance we have formed with Backbase will help banks implement this vision by enabling them to deliver superior, personalized, relevant, fast and frictionless services anytime and anywhere.”
