Banking on a big transformation

A top-15 retail bank transformed its operations across consumer, commercial, and shared services functions, reinvented nearly all of its processes to create a more effective and efficient environment.

Client challenge

To address and improve its business processes in search of efficiency and better customer experiences:

  • Inconsistent client experience due to inefficient processes and too many hand-offs.
  • Too much fragmentation across teams with duplication of processes and activities.
  • Limited accountability and responsibility for end-to-end business processes.
