ENGAGEMENT SUMMARY
 

PROJECT EXECUTION

The primary focus in this Revenue Intelligence project was to verify the correct application of fees and charges and provide the bank with potential revenue enhancing strategies within their credit card products.

 

We were facing a very challenging market environment, with a regulator making banking activities more and more complicated within the market. 

 

Nevertheless, we managed to deliver the project in a 9 week time frame and managed to present 31 strategies to the bank. 

 

At the end of the decision process of all involved areas of the bank, 11 strategies have been chosen for implementation. 

 

Our main principle is to present strategies that our clients can implement, since we only earn if we reach implementation and tracking. The acceptance ratio of 43% of the total value presented reflects the applicability of our strategies.

Despite the very difficult regulatory situation, we managed to significantly surpass the client's expectations, with reaching acceptance of 7.06 EUR per active card. The basis for these results was the excellent relationship & teamwork between the client and us.

IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS

As you will see below 40% of our impact implemented was immediately actionable for the client, having no IT constraints and therefore being quick wins.
