Revolutionizing the modern banking experience– SpareBank 1 SR-Bank’s story 

SpareBank 1 SR-Bank is the second largest Norwegian bank with a customer base of 350,000+ including both individuals and companies as customers. Backed by a strong history and a solid position in the market, they aim to become a leading financial group with the most customer-centric banking operations. 

Introducing the Simplifai Archiver

Staying relevant to a diversified customer base was quite challenging 

Their customer support team received more than 420,000 email inquiries annually. Manual handling of communications consisting of free text is not only time-consuming but also expensive. To maintain a profitable customer relationship, it became a necessity to onboard an automation solution that would help them to balance things efficiently. 

They needed a robust end-to-end automation solution to help them become the most customer-centric bank while keeping their operating cost to the minimum. 

Creating long-lasting capabilities with state-of-art AI solutions

A solution designed to leverage the efficiency of automation without compromising humanized customer relations was needed to: 

  • Exceed customer expectations 
  • Adjust to address sudden volume upsurge 
  • Free employees to address complex cases 
  • Improve customer retention and acquisition 

What made them onboard Simplifai to build the most robust banking platform? 

  1. Our state-of-the-art AI solution has the ability to classify and extract information from free text 
  2. We adhere to a ‘privacy by design’ approach, taking data security into consideration from the beginning 
  3. The solution is built on GDPR and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 protocol compliant software 

SR-Bank works continuously to streamline internal processes to create better customer experiences. We see great potential for streamlining back-office operations through collaboration with Simplifai. There is also a potential for synergy effects between Simplifai and companies in the Finstart Nordic portfolio.
