Goal & Challenge

Scala CMS

Goal: Create a paperless banking environment that conveys the forward-looking brand values of FAB, as well as clearly communicates bank operations and services to customers.
Keen to convey the forward-facing vision of the bank as well as its commitment to customer service, the environment and utilizing technology to better serve its clients, FAB sought to create a seamless digital customer experience in its newly renovated Cairo Head Office branch. The Head Office branch needed to have the “wow” factor able to impress the valued customers of the branch as well as enticing potential new clients.

Challenge: Eliminate paper from FAB branches and still be able to clearly communicate with customers in a bespoke manner.
FAB wanted to offer a fully digitized and eco-friendly space to their clients. With a desire to go paperless, design partner Synchronized Business Solutions (SBS), powered by Scala, had to develop a digital solution that allowed customers to easily access the information that they needed and also be kept informed of bank operations and promotional offers. The FAB Head Office Branch in Cairo needed to demonstrate the brand’s commitment to technology, customer convenience, compliance and safety. As a showcase of the bank’s brand values, the installed digital solution needed to be visually and operationally impressive, while offering up-to-date information and a seamless experience for walk-in customers.

Solution

Scala CMS

Working with Scala, a full solutions partner, to create an easy to use, integrated system which allows messages to be created, scheduled and displayed from a variety of locations. Scala provided and fitted all digital screens and tablets within bank branches, working with the bank team to coordinate installation to ensure disruption to bank operations was at a minimum. Scala created the content management and editing system and, working with Scala Certified Partner, Pilot Screentime, created an easy-to-use editing tool and trained Hamburger Sparkasse team members on how to create, edit and schedule content. The installed solution also included Quividi attention tracking software on the digital display screens to provide key analytics on the effectiveness of scheduled content so messaging could be optimised in real-time.

Solution

SBS, using Scala technology, designed, installed and continues to maintain interactive digital signage that effectively engages bank clients and demonstrates the future-forward ethos of the FAB brand.

Fully digitalised and eco-friendly, the implemented SBS eBrochure solution, a first for the bank, has transformed FAB into a paperless and clutter-free environment. Using interactive digital displays within the bank’s branches means that customers can access the information they need and also transfer any on-screen content to their personal smart devices.

The integration of complementary SaaS systems and technology, means that customers can get a fully rounded experience with even a ‘call back’ option in relation to any of the products or services they were interested in via the in-bank screens. While they wait for their in-person appointments, customers can be served relevant bank information through screens smartly located within the branch premises. All on-screen content is easily created and scheduled via the central HQ where it can be instantly deployed across the entire branch network. This ensures customers receive the latest offers and relevant up to date information such as interest rates and exchange rates that are directly integrated with the bank’s system.
