Oschadbank Implementation of Call Center XRM (R) Banking Solution at Ukrainian Bank

With over 6,000 branch locations servicing hundreds of thousands of depositors, and responsibility for making government guaranteed payments to depositors, Oschadbank needed a system designed specifically for the banking industry that would allow their call center to respond efficiently and effectively to a very large call volume. They selected the Call Center XRM Banking solution in part because it was built on the foundation of Microsoft Dynamics CRM.


Currently, the priority objectives for Oschadbank's IT department include issues of centralizing and improving the efficiency of business processes, which are primarily aimed at improving the quality of customer service. One of the most important stages in the overall IT strategy is to build a Call Center for working with Oschadbank customers and for supporting payments made through the State Savings Bank of Ukraine.

* Oschadbank management decided to use Microsoft Dynamics CRM as the CRM for Oschadbank as this solution has the required functionality and, most importantly, adaptability. *

To achieve its objectives, Oschadbank had to be ready to service inquiries from hundreds of thousands of depositors and ensure that the payment process worked in accordance with a clear plan, without waiting lines and the chaos that invariably occur in such circumstances.

This required a system that could provide the capacity to process customer telephone inquiries, provide information support through the website, keep records of working time, control the work schedules of offices across the country and, of course, manage the payment waiting line.

Following a thorough analysis and to ensure centralized support and control of the depositor service process, Oschadbank management decided to use the Call center XRM® Banking system based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM, which served as a basis for implementing the contact center in the Bank.

To process tens of thousands of customer requests and to help them get their money, the Call center XRM ® Banking solution was deployed in just five days, after which Oschadbank's Contact Center operators started to receive a barrage of calls from depositors.

According to Andrey Bezgubenko, Director of E-consulting, "the main task the team faced was to promptly ensure the payments of deposits to customers of the other two banks through the Oschadbank network. It was necessary to build a customer relationship management system to effectively serve depositors in all branch offices across Ukraine."


The Call center XRM® Banking solution for Oschadbank based on Microsoft Dynamics is a comprehensive customer communication channel (calls, SMS, e-mail), to attract, retain and service with minimum time and effort for both parties.

It includes two major components:

• Contact Center that takes over the performance of business process to serve the depositors (by using customized voice menu, calls, mailings) with full control of operator activities (tracking time, recording telephone calls)

• Analysis system that stores customer data and the history of relations with each depositor.

Gennady Nischeta, Deputy Director, Informatization Department, Oschadbank, says: "For us, it was important, first of all, to select a technological tool that can quickly and effectively adapt to the specifics of the banking industry. E-Consulting has considerable experience in successfully implementing similar projects in banking and insurance institutions and offered the best option in terms of price/quality, the Call center XRM® Banking solution based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM. As a result, a large-scale and yet easy-to-use system was ready for commercial operation in just five days."

* In addition, the most important benefit of using CRM is the centralized control of the entire process, as well as the preparation of forecasts, which allows us to allocate resources so that the set deadlines are met. *

Dmitry Shymkiv, General Director, Microsoft Ukraine, notes: "To be successful, any business must not only be able to attract customers, but also maintain good relations with them. This can be easily done with our technology. Microsoft Dynamics CRM can be effectively adapted to the needs of a business in almost any industry."


Customer service automation made it possible to promptly and coherently process customer inquiries without waiting lines, complaints and other misunderstandings.

The system stores the relationship history of each depositor with Oschadbank and automatically identifies the customer by the incoming telephone call number when they call the banking institution. A pop-up individual depositor card provides the Contact Center employee with all necessary information, thereby saving the time that was previously spent on a manual data search. The system also supports sending personalized messages to customers via e-mail or SMS.

In only the system’s first 24 days, Oschadbank operators served 117 thousand depositors, not including 30 thousand clients who used the self-service feature on the web portal. The CRM system allowed Contact Center specialists to prepare non-conflicting work schedules for 1750 Oschadbank tellers by assigning each customer an individual appointment to one of the bank's 450 branch offices.

The Call center XRM® Banking solution based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM enabled Contact Center employees to receive incoming and make outgoing calls, view information about the depositor at the time of the first call, regardless of whether this call was taken or not, and also to prepare the work schedules for branch offices and process requests from the website. The CRM system is an important tool to control the quality of employees' work and their performance of clearly defined bank rules.

"As a result of implementing these payment projects, Oschadbank acquired a versatile tool that allows us to work with the mass customer segments and make optimal use of branch network resources and establish a clearly consistent customer service. While building the customer interaction procedures, we have sought to ensure maximum use of the multichannel capacity provided by the system. At the moment, depositors can get an appointment with the branch office not only through the Support Line operator, but also through the Bank's website, SMS, and telephone automated recorder. By using these advanced features, the Bank not only reduces its operating costs, but also increases the capacity of its Contact Center. In addition, the most important benefit of using CRM is the centralized control of the entire process, as well as the preparation of forecasts, which allows us to allocate resources so that the set deadlines are met," points out Anna Starik, Head of Contact Center, Oschadbank.
