Australian Banks have a robust approach to acquire new Home Loan customers and they are steadily improving the ability to retain their existing Home Loan customers. So why would they partner with an impartial mediator like Craggle to acquire and retain Home Loan customers?
Firstly – a recap on Craggle’s approach to mediating fairer deals. When an existing home loan customer is looking for a better rate, they can choose to sign up to Craggle (in as little as 3mins!). Craggle then gives the customers existing bank the chance to retain them with a better rate; whilst also sourcing new bank refinance offers out in the broader market. The customer is presented with both options to choose from depending on their preference.
Forward thinking banks who have begun using impartial mediators have found several benefits with this approach, which include:
This is where forward thinking banks use an impartial mediator to help bridge the trust divide. By doing so a bank is acknowledging to customers that they truly value their Home Loan business and would be happy to retain them as the customers seek to save money! Clearly a customer signing up to Craggle in the first place is an indicator of perhaps underlying trust issues with their existing bank but not all should be lost – particularly if the bank is willing to come to the party.
Bank’s can turn to an impartial mediator’s technology like Craggle to not only achieve a fair outcome but does so in a quick way! 87% of Australians look at quick resolutions more favourable than longer ones, and so banks are motivated to achieve a fair outcome at pace.
By partnering with Craggle, forward thinking banks are demonstrating a willingness to resolve dissatisfaction in a fair and impartial manner and support the notion that they are a responsible and trustworthy institution.
When a customer is satisfied with their bank, it goes a long way to strengthen the relationship. A strong relationship between customer and bank has shown that customers are 70% more to take up an additional product or service offering with that bank, and they are also 83% more likely to introduce new customers to the bank.
As you can see, there is a real benefit for both Home Loan customers and banks to use an independent mediator like Craggle to assist in negotiating fairer rates and helping to repair broken relationships.
