Challenge

Old systems that hindered customer and partner experiences

HomeEquity Bank had outdated systems and manual processes that made it difficult for their team to efficiently grow and provide cost-effective support to their broker partners, lawyers and customers. They required a digital transformation that would empower their customers to self-serve and enable their partners through pipeline transparency. 

 

Solution

Customer and partner communities that enable user-friendly self-service

For customers, a new portal was added that allows them to easily view available account details and make basic profile changes on their own. Self-service lets brokers focus on customer needs, upholding HomeEquity Bank’s standards of customer support. The broker portal includes a new Deal Dashboard, allowing them to easily gain better pipeline transparency.

 

Outcome

Cost Effective Self-Service and Increased Efficiency

Overall, HomeEquity Bank’s new communities position the company as having modern digital capabilities. They give audiences a simpler, more streamlined experience and have led HomeEquity Bank to achieve a variety of business outcomes.
