LiveBank transformed ING Bank’s online mortgage journey

ING Bank Śląski partnered with Ailleron to embark on a transformative journey aimed at modernizing its mortgage application process. Through a strategic agreement, both entities initiated the implementation of the LiveBank Platform solution, leveraging Ailleron's expertise and public cloud technology in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. This approach not only accelerated the product launch but also enhanced project flexibility, marking a pivotal shift towards a more agile and customer-centric banking experience.


Challenges Faced by ING Bank Śląski

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, the banking sector faces the dual challenge of meeting customer expectations for seamless, personalized service while optimizing operational efficiency. This case study explores how LiveBank, in partnership with ING Bank Śląski, revolutionized the mortgage application process, leveraging innovative digital solutions to enhance customer satisfaction and operational effectiveness.

Before integrating LiveBank’s solution, ING Bank Śląski encountered significant challenges in its mortgage application process. Customers expressed frustration with traditional, paper-based procedures that necessitated multiple branch visits, often resulting in time-consuming commutes and logistical hassles. Moreover, the bank sought to modernize its customer service capabilities to align with  consumers’ growing preference for digital interactions.

Goals of the Project

The collaboration aimed to achieve several key objectives:

  • Enhanced Customer Experience: Implementing a digital platform to offer customers a streamlined, user-friendly mortgage application process.
  • Operational Efficiency: Reducing the administrative burden and optimizing resource allocation through digital automation.
  • Scalability and Flexibility: Utilizing cloud-based technology to enable rapid deployment and scalability without significant upfront costs.

Project Scope

The scope of the project encompassed:

  • Unified Digital Platform: Providing ING Bank Śląski employees with a unified platform for remotely managing customer matters and improving communication through chat and online meetings. This included capabilities for video meetings, digital document exchange, screen sharing, and collaborative form-filling features.

  • Remote Product Purchase: Enabling bank customers to remotely purchase bank products, such as mortgages, eliminating the need for in-person visits for necessary formalities. This significantly enhances online communication and strengthens relationships between the bank and its customers through digital channels.

  • Training and Onboarding: A dedicated customer success expert was involved in the training process to ensure that employees not only mastered the technical aspects of LiveBank’s AI-powered platform but also developed proficiency in leveraging its capabilities. Training sessions were tailored to advisor’s roles, equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to utilize the new digital tools effectively. This initiative aimed to boost efficiency and streamline customer interactions, ultimately improving service delivery and client satisfaction.

  • Cloud Infrastructure: Implementing a secure cloud infrastructure provided by Operator Chmury Krajowej Sp. z o.o. (OChK) in Warsaw to support the scalable deployment of LiveBank’s solution. This approach ensures compliance with legal and industry regulations, especially the UKNF cloud communication, and enhances flexibility and operational agility.

  • Enhanced Security: Offering a highly secure remote customer service environment, replacing the need to visit a physical branch of a bank or other financial institution.

Results and Achievements

Since the deployment of LiveBank’s solution (after 6 months):

  • Increased Customer Engagement: The digital mortgage application process saw a 60% rise in customer engagement compared to traditional branch visits.
  • High Customer Satisfaction: A customer satisfaction survey awarded LiveBank a remarkable score of 4.8 out of 5, underscoring its effectiveness in meeting customer expectations for convenience and transparency.
  • Facilitated Over 7,000 Online Meetings: Many of these meetings were conducted via video calls, demonstrating high customer adoption and satisfaction with remote service options.

Customer Feedback and Satisfaction

While executing the project at ING Bank Śląski, the development team at Ailleron devised an entirely new operating model for the LiveBank system in a highly protected cloud infrastructure tailored to modern banking standards. The cloud model in which LiveBank was implemented at ING Bank Śląski ensured a faster project execution, started in Q1 2023. The ability to purchase any number of licenses provided the bank with scalability without high initial costs, which is crucial for such large projects. Using cloud technology, ING Bank Śląski can manage resources more efficiently, adjusting their use to current needs.
