Unique banking experience for each customer
Garanti BBVA wanted to deliver highly personalized digital experiences across channels — with more than 8 million customers across retail, commercial and personal banking segments, Garanti wanted to engage each customer in a unique way. They also wanted to utilize untapped customer segments, clean-up static segments and deliver more dynamic and real-time engagement.
They favored Insider’s agile technology that supported unique banking requirements and provided an easy-to-implement tool with personalized support and real-time strategic consultation. Insider’s robust segmentation capabilities was another feature that aligned with Garanti BBVA’s expectations. Insider’s platform also allowed for exciting ways to deliver better mobile experiences which improved customer interaction with Garanti BBVA’s financial products. During the initial phase, they executed various campaigns targeting 5 key metrics and they were impressed with the results.
Garanti BBVA’s decision to go with Insider was backed by Insider’s unified-channel approach — which allowed for Garanti BBVA to deliver personalized banking experiences across all touchpoints. Insider further provided a unified customer profile which allowed Garanti BBVA in gathering both web and mobile data in one single screen, in addition to being able to collect behavioral and real-time user data.
Personalizing user journeys and improved product discovery with image overlays
Garanti BBVA wanted to engage their customers over 55 and identify the most-used transaction items by this age group with a simple and easy-to-use homepage design for a smooth user experience and to improve conversion metrics. Garanti BBVA also wanted to regularly check the group’s engagement metrics and behavioral patterns.
