Customer Social Profiling

Check & Verify customer’s social life, connections, transactions, purchase patterns, travels, place of work, company where he is employed, current address and other details through social media/other platforms(LinkedIn, etc) through facial recognition and other information.

Voice Based Customer Grievance redressal System

The Application/Mechanism should have voice-based Customer Grievance Redressal where Customer should be able to register & track grievance through voice message which gets directed to respective department with proper back-end system for redressing for management having centralized monitoring.

An App for Agents(Referral Marketing & Affiliate Marketing)

A person(our present customer, student, retired employee, part-time worker, freelancer, unemployed person, etc) can register freely and whenever he/she bring a new customer/deal for the bank he/she will get a commission/reward points which can be encashed.

This idea is the automation of how insurance Companies works for generating leads through Agents, we can set different percentage of commissions/reward points for different products(like housing loans, current accounts etc)

The App should have easy Signup process(through Social Sign Up options like Facebook, Google LinkedIn etc or signup through mobile number & OTP verification) & Not a lengthy Form, after signup, he can access his dashboard with different products for referral like Saving Account, Credit Card, Housing Loan, Personal Loan, Insurance Policy etc. After successful conversion of lead his dashboard should display 1 lead converted and his credit/reward points credited with an option to transfer money in his/her account.

The app should have 2 interface/versions one for Bank/Admin & other for Agent/User. Admin should have previlidge to add,delete and modify Products & Set Commission/Points for each of the products, track lead generation & conversion from users. Admin should also have previlidge to provide bonus to users in case of certain achievements (like 100 leads converted, then 500 leads converted...)

On conversion of successful leads milestones (Like 100 leads, 500 leads, 1000 leads) the user should get Badges for Level 1 Partner, Lever 2 Partner & Top Level Partner. (Editable by Admin)

On conversion of 100 successful leads milestone the user get automatic Verified Tick with his/her name(like Facebook) this milestone value for verification tick can be editable by Admin.

User Interface of App should be easy and clutterfree for user.

A centralized system for checking Branch Ambience & Cleanliness

Branch Cleanliness & Ambience is the first thing which customer(or prospective customer) notices when he/she enters a branch. Govt. Banks do not always make the best first impressions when we look at cleanliness and ambiance. If the first impression to the customer is amazing, he will feel like “Wow this bank’s atmosphere is better than other banks and similar to PVT banks, then why should I go for other banks?”

A centralized system should be able to detect Cleanliness & ambiance effectively.
