The new agreement builds upon benefits already realized by Desjardins and its consumer and business members
MONTREAL, QC (January 21, 2020) — Desjardins Group has selected Montreal-based exagens and its award-winning behavioral banking platform to further enrich the digital experience it provides members. As Canada’s largest cooperative financial group and one of North America’s strongest financial institutions, Desjardins’ multiyear commitment is a vote of confidence for exagens and the future of behavioral banking.
Powered by exagens, Desjardin’s Assistant AccèsD has already proactively reached out to over 3 million members and engaged in more than 8 million conversations to provide tips, offer advice, and assist in transactions. Examples of where the exagens-powered digital assistant has helped include:
- assisting members with their money transfers while reducing abandonment by 69%
- guiding more than 40,000 people to the most appropriate account type for their needs
- increasing digital engagement with a 98 percent customer-satisfaction rating
“Adding Assistant AccèsD to our online banking environment has resulted in a significant increase in digital engagement and our ability to provide added value to our members,” says Eboni Boicel, Senior Director, Martech, Desjardins Group. “This multi-year commitment is our vote of confidence in exagens, its technology, and its vision to humanize the digital banking environment.
