Bank Leumi Strengthens Digital Services Leadership with CallVU’s Visual-IVR and Agent-Customer Collaboration

CallVU’s Advanced Digital Engagement Hub Enables Leumi to Offer a Wide Range of Self-Service Channels, Key to Maintaining Its Leadership in Digital Banking

Tel Aviv, Israel, October 19, 2017 --( In advance of next week’s attendance at Money20/20 in Las Vegas, CallVU, the leading provider of innovative Omni-Channel solutions that enable organizations to engage customers in their channels of choice, announced today that its visual IVR and agent-customer collaboration platform has been deployed by Bank Leumi, a leading Israel-based bank with operations in the US, UK and China. Leumi is spearheading digital banking by offering one of the most advanced digital services portfolios in the global banking industry. Simplifying customer experience through digital channels empowers the bank to create a more intuitive, innovative way of banking that is more affordable to customers.

CallVU’s platform serves Bank Leumi’s digital vision. Using CallVU’s advanced feature set, the bank is able to divert more activity into digital channels, shorten the duration of service calls and significantly increase first-call resolution – while streamlining back-office operations.

“As a leader in digital banking, it’s important for Leumi to partner with companies that share our vision about digital transformation,” said Eyal Perry, Head of Technology and the Direct Banking Department at Leumi's Retail Division. “CallVU’s technology bridges the gap between digital and non-digital assets, and allows Leumi to continue to provide its customers with the best quality of service and the best user experience. We’re very happy with the results we’re seeing and plan to rollout new services in the near future,” concluded Perry.

“We’re honored to have been selected by a forward thinking financial leader like Bank Leumi,” said Ori Faran, Founder and CEO of CallVU. “Many in the banking and financial services industries have invested in digital assets, but until now these assets were underutilized. At CallVU, we help organizations maximize their digital potential, while empowering them with a host of advanced services, such as intuitive visual menus for callers, co-browsing, co-signing documents, video chats, automated service-bots, and more.”

CallVU’s platform expands self-service with mobile digital engagement based on visual IVR, collaboration and service BOTs. Once a service call is made, CallVU diverts it to digital self-service so customers can quickly and easily resolve issues without waiting on the phone for an agent. Organizations can maximize the efficiency of digital assets, such as existing mobile and website apps, and serve them to callers during the live call. This opens new revenue streams, achieves more digital usage, reduces costs, and enhances both customer experience and the organization's digital brand.
