SwiftKnowledge introduces pre-configured banking application for customer product retention

New application helps banks more easily retain existing customers and increase balances of current accounts

EDEN PRAIRIE, MN, Nov. 3, 2009 -- SwiftKnowledge, LLC, a global provider of web-based business intelligence (BI) software, announced today SwiftKnowledge Customer Product Retention, a new SwiftKnowledge for Banking BI application. The company announced the news at the Bank Administration Institute’s Retail Delivery Conference and Expo, being held Nov. 3-5, 2009 in Boston, Mass. SwiftKnowledge is exhibiting in booth #769 at the event.

SwiftKnowledge Customer Product Retention empowers bank branch managers and marketing teams to analyze customer acquisition and retention data over time in order to identify trends related to specific campaigns, demographics or geographies. With this information, they then are better positioned to design and implement strategic marketing programs aimed at proactively retaining current customers and growing current accounts.

“A recent study by J.D. Power and Associates indicates banks risk losing their most profitable customers because customers with the lowest levels of commitment to their retail banks maintained deposit balances 15 percent higher than the average,” said Daniel Moloney, Ph.D., president for SwiftKnowledge. “Bankers readily admit it’s more profitable and economical to retain existing customers and grow existing balances than to attract new customers, but they often lack the necessary, comprehensive customer intelligence to accomplish this goal. Our new SwiftKnowledge for Banking Customer Product Retention application meets this need by enabling bankers to better identify the strongest marketing catalysts for up-selling and satisfying the needs of existing customers, while also helping to identify the best marketing tactics and sequences for new customer recruitment.”

The pre-configured SwiftKnowledge Customer Product Retention application analyzes a variety of banking account data points – including open and close dates for specific products owned by a banking customer – in order to spot trends or inflection points regarding attributes such as product “stickiness.” This insight allows banks to strengthen their relationships with existing customers.

“Additionally, another 2009 J.D. Power and Associates report on bank mergers and acquisitions found the likelihood of customers switching banks increases by up to three times after their bank merges with or is acquired by another financial institution,” Moloney said. “With an increasing number of bank mergers and acquisitions taking place during today’s turbulent economy, this finding implies a growing number of customer accounts will be placed in jeopardy, so banks need to take steps to proactively and aggressively preserve these client relationships. Our Customer Product Retention application can help them accomplish that goal.”

The SwiftKnowledge Customer Product Retention application integrates with core banking data and data stored in ancillary systems – such as trust systems or marketing campaign management systems – to give banks a complete, intuitive view of critical business information. The 100 percent web-based SwiftKnowledge technology deploys quickly and is specifically designed for high-volume use by non-technical business users, as determined by the bank’s information access policies.
