Retail Banking

App users can quickly access branch, product, and channel performance reporting and analysis. They can view KPIs related to deposits, assets, liabilities, staff, and market penetration.

Risk Management

The Challenge

Banks must comply with numerous regulatory exams each year, sourced from multiple agencies. Complicating matters, the scope and scale of regulations frequently change and are difficult to manage. Internally, banks face surging data and transaction volumes, the proliferation of data systems, and 3rd party interactions. All of these moving parts increase exposure to — and magnitude of — credit, market, and fraud risk.

The Solution

MicroStrategy is the only solution that can deliver the scale, performance, and flexibility needed for efficient regulatory reporting while also providing the self-service data discovery capabilities required for successful risk management investigation. Our solution allows banks to efficiently produce analytical reporting across huge volumes of data, distributed across multiple systems and domains. At the same time, risk managers are provided with sophisticated tools and analytical autonomy to uncover suspicious trends and behaviors before they become problems. Our platform enables banks to replace multiple, disparate point solutions with a single, common analytics platform—so they can maintain a governed and consistent enterprise data environment. Banks are able to satisfy regulatory requirements (such as Basel III, OCC, etc.) with confidence knowing that their data is unified and consistent across all regions and jurisdictions. With the MicroStrategy platform, banks can address burdensome and unpredictable regulatory challenges faster and more efficiently. That means they can spend more time running the business and less time reporting on it.

Treasury and Capital Markets

The Challenge

Only 41% of banks use predictive analytics and visualizations to turn their big data into actionable insights.

The Solution

MicroStrategy helps banks quickly analyze and act upon massive amounts of structured and unstructured data by arming them with sophisticated analytics and easy-to-understand visualizations. One such example is our solution for banking capital markets departments.

They are also provided with easy access to comprehensive market data related to interest rates, foreign exchange rates, commodity prices, and more. The best and worst performing market indicators for the day are highlighted along with the most quoted indices. These applications also include features such as economic calendars so that capital markets analysts can effortlessly keep track of key announcements and events in the industry. Podcasts of economic news and discussions can also be included in these applications.

Compliance and Audit

The Challenge

Banks have to verify data integrity between external and internal financial records to comply to stringent government financial regulations. 60% of U.S. bankers report that regulatory requirements account for upwards of 10% of their operating costs.

The Solution

With MicroStrategy, banks can more confidently navigate these risks by identifying gaps and errors that may have been overlooked in bank statements or other transactional data. Banking institutions must fiercely protect their customers as well as their own reputations. Data discovery gives these groups a direct way to better monitor and investigate suspicious activity through customized thresholds, or easily drag and drop balance sheet data by month and year for automated account matching. Bank leaders can make more informed decisions when asked to take action concerning suspicious activity reports (SARs) or review discrepancies in account balances across disparate data sources. MicroStrategy ensures banks maintain integrity and transparency by making analysis simple. Banks can safeguard their reputations by clarifying their risk management practices. Users can view dashboards to quickly understand core compliance statuses and reduce the complexity of looking at massive datasets for account reconciliations.

Customer Relationship Management

The Challenge

More than 1/3 of bank customers buy a product from a competing bank each year.

The Solution

MicroStrategy helps banks effectively utilize customer relationship management (CRM) solutions to acquire new customers, retain existing ones, and maximize customer lifetime value. Banks use our platform’s powerful analytics to comb through large amounts of data and extract actionable insights about how to increase the profitability of their customers. Our software enables them to maintain a holistic view of individual customers’ profiles and activities. These applications provide banks with information related to customer segments, attrition predictions, and marketing offer responsiveness. Users can employ these solutions to identify which individuals are most likely to default on credit cards and better understand the risks associated with individual loan applicants. They can use CRM data to keep track of their customers’ life stages so they can effectively market products like mortgages and IRAs at appropriate times. MicroStrategy CRM applications enable banks to identify their most profitable customers so they can focus on expanding their relationships with those clients through personalized marketing and customer service.

Digital Banking Card

The Challenge

Banks need a way to differentiate their customer experience and reduce fraudulent transactions, without placing unnecessary demands on users or sacrificing convenience. Thanks to multiple independent data stores, banks have multiple versions of customer identity and lack visibility into customer behavior and engagement across different channels. Banking professionals need a unified platform for identity and analytics to get insights across all sales and services channels and provide a consistent and differentiated customer experience.

The Solution

Usher provides banks with a single unified view of each customer which can be tied across touchpoints by integrating data from sales, services, marketing, and enterprise systems. This enables banks to build an exceptional and consistent digital customer experience through personalized and trusted customer interactions across channels. Usher users can easily and securely log into online systems, remotely verify customers with a secure one-time passcode, or log into kiosks to access sensitive information and applications. This facilitates a trusted and customizable banking experience by leveraging Bluetooth technology to help avoid customer fraud, mitigate risk, and meet compliance requirements. Usher’s analytical capabilities make it easy for banks to build dashboards providing real-time insights into user preferences.

Digital Identity Badge

The Challenge

Banks use separate forms of credentials for their facilities and IT systems, and rely on different badges for their employees and vendors— leading to a fragmented approach to identity management and access control. Access cards, passwords, and hardware tokens are difficult to personalize, issue, manage, and revoke. Providing secure access to employees and vendors is key to avoiding breaches and improving productivity.

The Solution

Usher’s digital badges enable authorized banking personnel and partners to securely and seamlessly access corporate bank offices, branches, and critical information systems by leveraging their smartphones. With Usher, banking institutions have a variety of options to protect enterprise information through strong, flexible, multi-factor authentication, including push notifications, biometrics, one-time passwords, face-to-face validation, and Bluetooth proximity. Usher helps provide visibility into user behavior and actionable intelligence across multiple enterprise systems, enabling banking organizations to optimize asset utilization, improve productivity, reduce risk, and digitally transform their business operations. Usher is compatible with existing applications and can be integrated using API.
