Arundhati Bhattacharya, CEO and chairperson, Salesforce India and Prashant Kumar, MD and CEO, YES BANK announced the collaboration at YES BANK’s Corporate Headquarters in Mumbai.
The deployment of the Salesforce Loan Origination System for retail banking will enable the Bank to provide personalized solutions and connected banking experiences for consumers across segments. It will bolster the Bank’s capacity to process higher volumes of loan applications through enhanced automations and progressive API integrations while also eliminating manual processes in the loan cycle – thereby reducing the turnaround time (TAT) for improved customer satisfaction. Leveraging on the digital capabilities, the Bank will be able to speedily launch a new range of innovative products and services to support the evolving needs of customers.
In addition to end customers, the Bank’s alliance partners, associates, manufacturer dealers and builders, among others can leverage the platform for accelerated fulfilment at the point of sale itself – thereby empowering the internal and external ecosystem of the Bank.
The platform will also enhance collaborative innovation within the Bank, providing the Bank’s employees from relationship managers to loan disbursement officers and risk managers, with a unified view of their customer’s portfolio and improved agility in offering customized digital solutions.
Arundhati Bhattacharya, CEO and chairperson, Salesforce India, said: “YES BANK has the vision to deliver renewed and unified experiences to customers by building long-lasting relationships, and Salesforce is excited and proud to be collaborating with them on their digital transformation journey to power the retail lending business for India. The new normal has reinforced the importance of the customer and businesses need to focus on long-term relationships ensuring customer wellness. From creating back-office efficiencies to powering personalized end-user experiences, we look forward to a fulfilling association with YES BANK.”
