Partnership improves efficiency, boosts profits for financial institutions

SAN FRANCISCO & BOZEMAN, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Zoot, a leading provider of advanced instant credit decisioning and loan origination solutions and eVerge Group, a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, today announced at the 2012 Oracle OpenWorld Conference in San Francisco they offer a fully integrated decision engine and customer relationship management (CRM) solution.

“CRM is becoming the sales platform of choice for financial institutions. Zoot technology and eVerge Group expertise are a natural match that drive new value and functionality for the industry,” said Tom Johnson, vice president, business development, Zoot Enterprises. “Together we provide a complete sales platform for banks without the need to customize or work between systems.”

Zoot and eVerge Group have combined their capabilities to offer financial institutions (FIs) a comprehensive solution to more effectively facilitate real-time offers to their customers for financial products. The solution integrates FIs’ customer relationship management and credit decisioning solutions. This enables customer service representatives (CSRs) to more efficiently prescreen customers and determine the most appropriate cross-sell offers at the point of interaction.

"There is a need in retail banking for more intelligent customer interactions. Helping CSRs build deeper, more profitable customer relationships means giving them access to the customer insights that they need in realtime. One natural place for that insight to be delivered is through CRM,” said CEB TowerGroup Research Director, Frank Bria.

“Our partnership with Zoot helps financial institutions turn their call centers from cost centers into profit centers,” said Jason Hillner, executive director of financial solutions consulting, eVerge Group. “Integrating CRM and decisioning capabilities allows CSRs to prescreen customers live and present the most appropriate product during the conversation.”
