Geoban (part of Santander UK) Case Study 2016: Great service: plan for processes that make life easy

See the full Case StudyPresentation slides and Video

See how banking processes and customers’ end-to-end experience are transformed by new approaches to planning & insight at Geoban, on behalf of Santander UK.

A strong cultural identity, built around professionalism in service delivery, has transformed the back office at Geoban, in the face of complex challenges from consolidating diverse banking brands and an industry-wide explosion in PPI claims. This is underpinned by Quality, Control & Productivity (the ‘triangle’) and a new central Command Centre, which brings together planning & insight functions. New approaches to planning & insight are supporting a culture of collaboration, improving end-to-end customer journeys. Customer journey times are down a third in mortgage validations, ‘straight through processing’ is now c80% and service level breaches are almost eliminated for Subject Access Requests (SARS), despite a 32% surge in volume.

Key Results
  • 98% reduction in SARS regulatory breaches in spite of 32% increase in demand in 2015
  • 1 day (33%) reduction in customer journey for TD Validations
  • 50% improvement in TD Validations experiencing the optimum customer journey. Straight-through processing up from 50% to 78%
