The objective is not an easy one to achieve: making sure that the products that reach the market are the ones customers need and demand. The task is even more complicated if production must be speeded up, in order to reach the market before the competition.

Sex, religion, and politics, along with harmony and trust, gave birth to money. At first, there was barter.

Madrid tourists spend more near monuments and museums than those in Barcelona. People living in Vila de Gràcia in Barcelona have the same lifestyle as those in the Madrid neighborhood of Malasaña.

For BBVA Compass, every step of the customer journey is important, from account opening to basic account maintenance, which is why the bank’s new front-end sales and service application is a key tool for its branch team.

Dubbed Client Vista, the tool connects the bank’s real-time core banking platform to its sales and service team giving them better flexibility to assist the client and discuss products and services that are relevant to their personal needs. For the customer, the impact of the change is minimal, according to BBVA Compass Consumer Director of Business Planning and Client Vista Program Owner Shawn O’Brien, but the application was designed specifically to meet their needs.
