The case study provides models for calculating potential savings that can be attained by automating the account opening process, both online and in-branch, and examines how Alliant is using new account opening technology to support business growth strategies. The report shows that in the first six months after deploying the solution, Alliant was able to drive, on average, 13% of new account applicants to its online system, benefiting both Alliant and the customer.
According to Eva Weber, an analyst at Aite Group and author of the case study, "The beauty of Alliant's account opening system is that it provides enhanced customer convenience while giving Alliant the much-needed flexibility to execute on customer acquisition strategies. The added savings benefits of the system solidify the overall business case for such solutions, resulting in a win-win for both the credit union and its members."
