How to drive banking deposits with saving goals for improved revenue

Table of contents

With the paradigm shift towards hyper-personalised financial experiences and digital journeys that delight, financial institutions are under pressure to create genuinely tailored experiences that resonate with their customer’s financial aspirations.

And the key to unlocking this customer-centric banking experience? High-quality data, market-leading categorisation and data enrichment capabilities that can underpin the most advanced personal finance and money management solutions.

Some institutions might view budgeting and financial health as ‘hygiene’ features. But, increasingly, consumer expectations on the accuracy and sophistication of these tools are heightened – not least because of continuing cost-of-living pressures.

Consumers today are less tolerant of ‘miscellaneous’ transactions or poorly targeted financial wellbeing messages. Accurate transactional data enrichment is the foundation for the more advanced personal financial management (PFM) experiences that drive real action and value in today’s hyper-personalised world.

That’s where Engage comes in. With our AI-powered PFM  solution, you can use our range of features including savings goals as a strategic way to drive engagement, loyalty and deposits for greater revenue.
