Case Study: BANKING AND FINANCIAL
Freshly implemented RPA increases productivity, saving international bank $340K
Employee morale improved when HGS addressed IT inefficiencies with automation
Listed as one of Forbes Magazine’s “World’s Best Banks,” our client is dedicated to the growth and success of the customers and 75 communities it serves. With 160+ facilities and 250+ ATMs throughout Texas and Oklahoma, the bank has over 3,000 employees and holds over $16 billion in assets.
Several disparate databases were being used internally and externally, and the bank’s IT department was fraught with mundane, repetitive, time-consuming tasks that made the agent experience troublesome and left customers frustrated. The siloed and understaffed team was spending far too long on phone calls each day resolving self-service type issues such as password resets or username requests.
In addition, organizational changes were exacerbating existing issues. Having recently taken on the new responsibility of IT, the longtime VP of the bank connected with HGS to help make their IT staff more efficient and boost employee morale.
By listening to the client and leading from a place of empathy, the HGS Digital team instituted a plan: overhaul processes and methodologies with robotics process automation (RPA) to ultimately increase agent productivity and enhance the customer experience.
During the following 12 months, more than 4,500 password reset transactions and 174,000 alert review transactions were processed.
Within that time, the addition of the alert review automation increased productivity by 110%, while average handle time (AHT) was reduced by 32%.
Meanwhile, the password reset automation increased productivity by 186%, alongside a 70% reduction in AHT.
Not only did these two automations yield nearly $340,000 in cost savings, but over 14,000 human work hours were also saved by removing the repetitive, tedious tasks, significantly boosting employee morale.
