Our company helps the bank to fulfil this strategy by migration and modernization of the CRM cloud solution.
Slovenská sporiteľňa, the largest commercial bank in Slovakia, ranks among our significant customers. In the past, we were a part of multiple projects which streamlined work of the employees and improved customer care.
The bank´s priority is to constantly provide the latest services in the world of finances. Adequate system support in the form of modern and well-established technology is an inseparable part of this strategy. It is exactly the reason why the bank decided to upgrade the CRM solutions for corporate and private banking. Microsoft Dynamics 365, the chosen cloud business platform, provides lots of functionalities and benefits to create a system as a source of relevant client information and helping bank employees to effectively and comfortably provide consulting and sales services together with related service.
With the cloud CRM solution, the bank will gain multiple benefits:

The CAFE application (Credit Application Front End) is built on the LPS (Loan Processing System) solution which automates and streamlines the course of the entire loan products sales process in the SME segment – from the client´s arrival to the bank branch, through automatic generation of contractual documentation to monitoring loan repayment. It enables quick reactions on market needs, effective management of contractual types and, finally, it contributes to saving costs and reducing risk related to the human factor during the loan sales process.
Slovenská sporiteľňa has gained a tool providing the management with nonstop access to up-to-date information on number and status of ongoing loan products applications. The CAFE application has been integrated with the CRM system already used by the bank.
Slovenská sporiteľňa´s portfolio contains more than 30% companies from the SME segment. Client data as well as records concerning relationships with individual clients used to be processed in various systems and were not available at one place. The Erste Group had already known Microsoft Dynamics CRM and used its advantages. It had been used for work with large corporate clients. This experience was the reason why Slovenská sporiteľná decided to implement a similar solution also for the SME segment.
SLSP Private Banking (EPB) administers assets of approximately 1,500 clients in its portfolio of total value more than 800 million Eur. The agenda and client data were processed via several tools, excel tables, word files, etc. Those were not mutually connected and cooperation of employees was often complicated and ineffective. The best possible way how to change it was to implement a unified system for management of client information and data – Customer Relationship management (CRM).
The solution joins all the employees of the private banking at one system. No more sending of various versions of the same documents, emails, charts etc. Thanks to the numerous CRM functionalities tailored to customer´s needs, work and cooperation of the employees is more effective, and all the important tools are under one roof.
