Transforming into a Digital-first Financial Services Company with On Demand Teams


Staying Relevant in the Changing Market Conditions

Customer experience is the biggest differentiating factor in the financial services industry today. While customers prefer digital experiences, they also expect personalization and a human touch. Considering these market shifts, a financial services MNC wanted to be recognized as a digital-first bank. Leveraging data-driven insights, it wanted to launch hyper-personalized campaigns and establish trust.

While the internal teams had a solid plan for leading this digital initiative, they had a lot going on to execute everything in-house. They needed high-performing teams that could act as extensions of their core workforce.

The financial services company looked towards marketing agencies but wasn’t satisfied with their subject matter expertise. Also, the agencies couldn’t offer the required turnaround times for the company based on its past experiences.

While hiring more people in-house was always an option, the company couldn’t afford months-long hiring cycles. The market demands were changing and the FS company had to change with them in order to stay ahead of the competition. The company needed to support evolving priorities such as cloud services, data center migration, cybersecurity, MarTech, product development, and sustainability initiatives. Hiring full-time was particularly difficult and risky because of how quickly these needs were changing.
