State Bank and Trust Company Chooses FormAssembly for Advanced Functionality and Useful Integrations
Case Study Snapshot
As a software professional for a growing financial services organization, Carl Lange is accustomed to watching for new applications that can improve State Bank’s internal processes.
“I saw FormAssembly and thought ‘we’re going to need this.’ Then, in the middle of a vendor review process, the need popped up,” Lange said.
FormAssembly provides a solution for State Bank’s online account application needs, particularly as they grow, merge with existing banks, and comply with regulatory standards. FormAssembly’s powerful Salesforce integration is helping State Bank with a three-fold strategy to integrate online forms into their core business and CRM processes.
About State Bank and Trust Company
Vendor Shortfalls and Merger Needs
State Bank’s internal need came as they were working to maintain an online application for one of the bank’s account options. As staff looked ahead to future regulatory changes already in the pipeline, they recognized the need to have their own managed form solution.
As a rapidly expanding organization, State Bank also needed a way to tackle web forms as they merged with other banks. One bank in particular had an existing application form, but State Bank would have had to convert that form using an outside vendor. FormAssembly opened the door to converting these pre-existing web forms in such a way as to ease the burden of mergers while satisfying regulatory changes.
Easy Web Form Integration with Advanced Capabilities
FormAssembly provided the means for State Bank to convert their web forms in ways that would satisfy federal regulatory changes in the works. Additionally, FormAssembly allowed State Bank to convert the form processes of other banks they were looking to merge, which will continue to be a need as they grow.
One of the primary reasons that State Bank opted for FormAssembly was because of its powerful Salesforce integration.
With such an organizational shift towards Salesforce, State Bank needed a form solution that would seamlessly connect to their existing CRM while opening up opportunities for cohesive future projects. The FormAssembly Salesforce Connector provides an unmatched solution, as form data is now imported directly to Salesforce.
By using FormAssembly, State Bank is now able to process account applications with more speed and accuracy. Now, the bank can streamline follow-up steps with each applicant and track where an application is at each step in the approval process. By using an easily-accessible dashboard, they are able to keep tabs on applications without tedious paper processes or undue burden on staff members.
Conditional Formatting and Attachments
State Bank also utilizes FormAssembly’s conditional formatting features for complex forms that require an applicant to submit detailed personal information. They can also collect documents from clients who need to submit commercial licensing paperwork and proof of identity for various business applications. FormAssembly’s attachment capabilities provide a simplified way for customers to attach this information as they submit applications.
As a financial services organization, State Bank requires a secure method to collect data from their customers, not only to maintain their reputation and to protect clients, but also to meet federal regulations for data collection.
“Phase 3 includes improving applications all the way back to our core systems. If someone fits within a scale or rating, we may be able to automate some of the process of pulling them into the core system. Or, we may be able to further automate the opening of accounts,” Lange said.
FormAssembly provides endless possibilities for an organization like State Bank that is striving continually to improve upon its internal processes and customer service.
