Fintech Customer Support Philippines: More than Meets the Eyeby Fintech News Hong Kong August 14, 2023
The ever-evolving world of financial technology, or fintech, is a landscape of ceaseless innovation and competition. It’s an ecosystem where the ability to adapt, reinvent, and deliver at the highest level sets successful enterprises apart. Recognizing the unique challenges of this sector, Cynergy BPO, a leading advisory firm in the Philippines, is redefining what it means to offer fintech customer support.
“The game has moved beyond the simple confines of customer service,”
says John Maczynski, CEO of Cynergy BPO.
“We’re looking at a holistic model of support, encompassing front office, back office, and every point of customer interaction.”
At the forefront, customer service remains a critical function, resolving queries, providing technical support, and driving customer acquisition and retention. However, the approach has changed. Cynergy BPO’s partners are leveraging advanced tech to support multiple contact channels, from traditional voice support to chat, email, in-app messaging, social media, and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems.
Meanwhile, 24/7 multilingual support is on the rise, catering to fintech’s global customer base.
“Language should never be a barrier to seamless support,”
Maczynski asserts. But a stellar front office is just the beginning. Today’s fintech firms need robust back-office support to thrive in a rapidly changing landscape. Services such as data analytics, fraud detection and mitigation, finance and accounting, dispute and chargeback management, and regulatory compliance form the backbone of efficient operations.
“Our back-office services are about laying a foundation of trust and compliance,”
explains Ralf Ellspermann, CSO of Cynergy BPO.
“It’s about using data to inform decisions, ensuring financial integrity, and adhering to regulatory standards. All while optimizing operational efficiency.”
The application of advanced technologies further augments the back-office function. From AI-enhanced data analytics that can spot emerging market trends and predict customer behavior to Robotic Process Automation that can streamline routine tasks, technology is a potent ally.
Cynergy BPO’s integrated front and back-office support model repositions customer support as a strategic business function, driving growth, and fostering innovation. It’s a significant shift from the traditional view of customer support as a cost center.
However, none of this undermines the importance of customer experience (CX). In a world where brand loyalty is closely tied to customer experience, businesses cannot afford to underestimate its value.
“High-quality CX is the thread that weaves together all these services,”
“It’s not just about resolving a query or processing a transaction; it’s about providing a seamless, positive experience at every touchpoint.”
In essence, Cynergy BPO’s holistic customer support model aligns advanced technology with human ingenuity, operational efficiency with customer satisfaction, and innovative services with regulatory compliance. It’s a compelling testament to the fact that in fintech, customer support is indeed more than just customer service. It’s a multifaceted function that can, and does, drive business success.
