Analytical function to drive acquisition, retention & value management programs
Fractal builds the analytical function for a large Korean bank, enabling it to drive acquisition, retention & value management programs
The Business challenge

The HealthCheck engagement identified and analyzed the gaps in the current systems, processes and strategies of the credit card division when compared to established benchmarks. We then designed and implemented a revised marketing organizational structure that would support the analytical initiatives of the bank.
