Why Financial Service Providers Need Branded Communication
For industries that deal with sensitive information like banks, credit unions, and financial services, customers ranked the phone as their #1 preference for communication, three times higher than SMS. But with scam calls costing consumers nearly $60 billion a year, they’re wary of divulging their information to an unknown caller. A branded phone call lets consumers know the caller is someone they can trust.

Beyond Just Answer Rates
It's a fact. Businesses that use Branded Communication see a lift in answer rates as much as 220%. But answer rates are just the beginning.
When calling to follow up on online account or loan applications, they report an increase in completed applications up to 30% when compared to connecting with a non-branded call.
Branded Communication boosts effectiveness of calling programs, account services calls, and support calls/callback, improving customer acquisition, retention, and reacquisition.

Customers Want And Need Your Call …
But They Don’t Know It’s You
We blind-surveyed 2,000 financial service customers in North America and found that mistrust of incoming phone calls is hampering both customer and provider from reaching their goals.
Despite secure emails, SMS messages, and other online-oriented methods of communication, when it comes to their financial and account details, customers want to receive a good ol’ phone call. As much as 36% prefer call about suspected fraud, financial planning, new loan information, and investment opportunities — and 45% want a call about urgent matters over a text message!
But 66% report missing calls from their banks or other providers simply because they didn’t recognize the caller’s number. And 92% whether a call from their bank is clearly identified is very important to whether they pick up.
