NICE CXone digitizes contact center operations for Australian regional bank

NICE announced that Regional Australia Bank, one of Australia’s leading banking alternatives to the “big four” banks, has successfully implemented the NICE CXone platform to help streamline its contact center operations and better supporting its branches across New South Wales (NSW).

The implementation provides increased functionality, flexibility and adaptability to contact center agents and banking staff distributed across its regional NSW branches.

Kim Burraston, Senior Manager – Branch Operations, Regional Australia Bank, said: “As part of our digital transformation, Regional Australia Bank needed a cloud-based system that could grow with the business and meet the demands confidentiality and security. After evaluating several solutions on the market, Regional Australia Bank identified NICE CXone as the ideal solution as it offered significantly more functionality and adaptability than its alternatives. Additionally, it was easy to manage and train staff, which better supported our organization in its efforts to decentralize contact center operations. The transition to CXone was a critical step in Regional Australia Bank’s journey to streamline the customer and agent experience.

Regional Australia Bank maintains a network of branches in 38 towns across the NSW region, supporting over 80,000 customers, including families and small and medium businesses. Regional Australia Bank has a strong commitment to the communities in which it operates. Its Community Partnership Program allows members to support their local community simply by transacting with a selected savings account and nominating their choice of organizations from a list of 1,600 registered groups and causes.

NICE CXone was the ideal cloud solution for Regional Australia Bank due to its scalability. It provided an excellent user experience for staff and the end customer, enabling a smooth transition to the new system and removing much of the day-to-day administration associated with the bank’s on-premises solution.
