Know Our Client

Our customer is a well-known financial institution based in the Middle East. They hold an Authorized Capital of more than 10 billion USD, making them one of the primary financiers of the real estate industry. The bank comes under the direct supervision of the Ministry of Housing Affairs.

They provide a diverse range of financial services and products that include personal loans, educational loans, housing loans, business loans, and credit cards.

Our Client’s Business Challenge

Our client, a prominent financial services institution, faced various challenges in delivering effective customer support given the size and scope of versatile operations. One of these challenges was that customers frequently had to endure long wait times to speak with a representative or resolve their queries leading to dissatisfaction with their experience. Additionally, the institution struggled with managing a high volume of queries from customers with different linguistic backgrounds.
To streamline their customer support operations, they required a secure, scalable, and robust solution capable of intelligently handling all customer inquiries. Specifically, they sought an all-in-one solution that could handle a variety of inbound queries, including basic financial tasks such as checking balances, transferring funds, and inquiring about loans, among others.

The end customers had to spend a lot of time in the process, which resulted in high costs for our client to maintain the operations. Thus, our client wanted a voice bot solution that would work in different languages on their ATM Kiosk and would ease the end-to-end process by boosting the customer engagement index and reducing the waiting queues of customers with prompt and accurate responses. As this in turn would enable employees to work on more critical tasks than just supporting repetitive menial customer assistance tasks.
