There’s no such thing as “local” banking anymore. All your transactions are naturally international. This is why you need to cover all the time zones, all the time. Our after-hours service for finance can help.
Since the financial crisis in 2008, a lot of consumers have lost a lot of faith in their banking and finance institutions. The trust and the strong bond people had with their bank is long gone. This is a problem many industries now face. Financial institutions must work hard to earn that trust back. So how can an after-hours service for the finance and banking industry fix and amend that? Let’s see:
Banking is so much more than just a case of “hold my money till I need it”… it’s deeply ingrained into every single aspect of modern life. Nothing is untouched by today’s banking system. There is not a single aspect of life that does not have financial ties in some way.
And this deep-seated dependence and interconnectedness is what can drive either a lot of trust and a willingness to work together, or it can destroy lives completely. No other industry is so deeply embedded and drives so many of life’s big decisions. A good relationship with your bank means that doors open that may not otherwise have been opened.
This is why it is paramount that your customers and consumers can always be completely sure that they themselves and their livelihoods are in good and trustworthy hands. Hands that are always there and never, ever sleep. An after-hours help desk specialized in finance is exactly what you need to show the people who trust you the most that they are in such strong and good, and never-resting hands.
Specialized in Finance
31West is specialized in finance. Our after-hours help desk is not just a reception desk or switchboard. We know exactly what we’re talking about. We have a deep understanding of all the processes involved in the modern finance industry, from creating and maintaining a solid financial plan to collating and assessing finance indexes. We know how to watch the markets while you’re sleeping, so you won’t have to. If there’s a crisis brewing with a stock you’re keen to know about, we can track every single movement for you and you can wake up to a full report of what happened.
If there’s a plunge or a soar in the market, we’re on it, and we know what to do. We will always act in your interest and exactly within the parameters, you set out.
We already have an after-hours support system for financial institutions in place that can handle anything from balance and transaction requests to creating and maintaining all regulatory compliance standards.
Confidential and up to standards
When it comes to your customer’s money, nothing is more important than their privacy and the safety and security of their data. It is absolutely paramount that nothing gets leaked, nothing ever leaves the safe environment of your own CRM tools. This is why we work with your tools to ensure all protocols are kept secure.
It’s not just that we want to work this way – it’s to ensure government regulations are always upheld and kept. Since we operate internationally, we are well aware of all federal and state regulations that apply in your area and will ensure that both parties comply at all times. We work in some of the most harshly regulated markets in the world (Western Europe, the US, and Canada), so we bring with us a deep understanding of what’s at stake.
This will give your customers an added sense of security. They can be sure that they can reach a “real live” human being in their hour of need. An after-hours service desk for banking is important to build trust. Your customers must know that someone is always there to watch over their livelihoods.
Not just Tech Support
There are a lot of services out there, providing after-hours support desks or receptionist work. Where 31West is different is that we don’t just specialise in providing a human touch. We know every aspect of your business, inside and out. We’re not just an after-hours help desk. We are advisors, tech support, receptionists, customer service and financial consultants rolled into one. We understand all manner of different finance models and parameters, and make it a point to immerse ourselves in your particular policies and business practises.
We live and breathe to emulate exactly what your core team does, and provide a cheaper alternative to expanding your core team.
Consumers and Businesses
There has been a long standing tradition of banking being split into two different aspects. Consumer banking and business clients have often been looked at as two completely different worlds, and there is a certain degree of truth to that.
Our expertise in both worlds allows us to provide an after-hours service for the banking industry that looks at both sides of the coin with an equal level of professionalism.
Your business client cannot wait for a money order to go through to one of their vendors just because your help desk happens to be closed on a national holiday. Their vendor might not care about that holiday, or they might be from a region where that holiday is not celebrated.
Does your lack of a care team mean that their vendor should go without payment for a prolonged period? Of course not.
Banking has become so international and so fast paced that there is simply no possible way for you to only be available for a few hours a day.
31West can help you maintain a 24/7/365 level of support. When a financial question arises, we can answer it immediately. When a technical problem comes up, we can work to solve it.
All while maintaining the highest security standards. All while using your in-house logging and CRM tools. All while giving you the peace of mind in the knowledge that no customer issue ever goes unanswered again.
