business optimization and robotic process automation

Streamlining Home Equity Loan Processing via Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

A Wisconsin credit union with more than $4 billion in assets turned to Cimphoni when it sought to drive operational efficiencies and introduce technology innovation to enhance customer service. We determined that the credit union’s home equity lending line of business was particularly well-suited for improvement and innovation through Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and led the project from detailed process documentation and project justification through organizational change management and implementation of the technology solution. We completed end-to-end automation of home equity loans from application submission and validation to eligibility and offer determination to generation of reports and final documentation across multiple internal systems. Leveraging our metric-driven business optimization approach, we were able to deliver meaningful improvements in labor productivity, cycle time and compliance. We also identified numerous additional areas for future RPA implementations based on projected ROI.

omni-channel CX 2

Transforming to an Omni-Channel Customer Experience

An association with 6 million members turned to Cimphoni for a multi-year initiative to streamline and evolve its customer experience across multiple lines of business and more than 170 locations. We spearheaded business strategy development, omni-channel customer experience (CX) design, the vendor selection process and the establishment of an ongoing program management structure. We were responsible for rationalizing disparate technology vendor platforms from 13 down to one and changing the technology organization’s mindset from favoring onsite solutions to embracing agile and cloud-based platforms. We also established a new organizational design, including the creation of a CX function that optimized the workforce around the new CX strategy.

retail ecommerce

Technology Modernization for Ecommerce

A large U.S. retail firm had a collection of ecommerce properties that it inherited through acquisitions, which were all running on separate Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) platforms, causing challenges with application development and governance. A consultant on our team optimized the e-commerce ecosystem by moving a single system for subsequent migration to a microservices-based platform. We also developed continuous integration and deployment pipelines, and organized release management, making it possible for a bi-weekly release cadence with no production downtimes. We also achieved a 100% increase in features per release capacity and 90% reduction in escape defects while accelerating the development of a new platform by two months.
