First Bank chooses Crmnext’s human touch for branch revamp
The bank has more than 300,000 customers across 95 locations and reckons “the branch is evolving – not going away”. Therefore, it is looking to digital banking with “personalised, human interactions”.
Cathy Dudley, executive vice-president at First Bank, says: “We believe that when customers have big financial questions, they want to talk to someone rather than chat over the phone with a support associate or send messages through an app.”
According to Crmnext, its solution reduces the average length of customer transactions by 90%, increasing employee productivity by 60%, and contributing an increase of as much as 40% to bottom line revenue.
First Bancorp is the holding company for First Bank and is headquartered in Southern Pines, North Carolina. The company currently operates 95 bank branches, with 89 branches operating in North Carolina and six branches in South Carolina.
