Location intelligence use cases for BFSI


Let's take a look at the top use cases for location intelligence in the BFSI industry.


1) Optimize customer offering


According to an Accenture survey, more than half of respondents want their banks to recommend banking products, services, and offers proactively. Financial service providers can build customer profiles and show them the right product with accurate location intelligence. Also, they can adapt their offering and communications to keep up with their changing requirements. Analyzing location information and merging it with business data can help BFSI companies make more informed decisions while rolling out customer-centric products and strategies. Besides improving the quality of their customer engagement, it also highlights the inefficiencies in their banking networks.


2) Real-time tracking of field executives


One of the critical challenges of BFSI companies is to manage a large field workforce. A field force automation software helps bank managers keep track of their field agents' daily activities, including visiting customers, maintaining attendance logs, managing expenses, and more. Field executives can submit proof of visits, record job completion, and even take customer feedback. The software allows real-time job allocation of the agent, based on various parameters like skillset, priority, distance, and time.


3) Site selection


LI helps banks and financial institutions better understand the profiles and advantages of a location compared to other locations. They can leverage location data to analyze a specific area and measure its potential over the other and get a more in-depth picture of its customers. The business intelligence helps them decide about the next location for opening a bank branch or a new ATM. Banks can even staff the branch accordingly and determine realistic sales and profitability targets.


4) Fraud detection


Frauds related to income, property, and sales tax can be identified using location insights gained from credit card usage. Banks also use LI to analyze the distances and times between transactions and detect any unusual patterns in real-time. It is also possible to build a clear picture and identify a customer's pattern from their location intelligence data like where they live, the place they travel, and so on. Insurance companies can leverage accurate mapping data to quickly identify false or invalid addresses to build a single customer view. They can reduce the number of false positives that mistakenly extend to legitimate claims. Also, companies can speed up the process of claims and improve turnaround time (TAT). Lastly, insurance companies can enhance the process of claims management resources.
