CMOs and marketing teams at financial services institutions are constantly challenged with planning and executing personalized or regionalized campaigns. One of the biggest challenges for these marketing teams is to address the complexity of regionalized marketing distribution for their retail locations.
A manual process of planning and distributing marketing campaign assets across various branches is labor-intensive, error-prone, and costly, hindering the institution’s ability to effectively plan and execute targeted marketing initiatives. As a CMO, you are undoubtedly aware of the impact these inefficiencies can have on your organization’s bottom line and overall brand image.
With CrossCap’s Distro platform, large financial enterprises can simplify and optimize location-specific branch marketing. This blog post will delve into a case study that explores how one international banking institution transformed its marketing operations using the Distro platform.
The institution in question was grappling with a complex, predominantly manual process for distributing marketing campaigns. This process involved over 30 steps and required careful coordination and communication with numerous stakeholders. Errors were common, leading to frequent reworks and substantial wastage of print materials. More so, these errors were major contributors to delays in timelines, throwing marketing schedules off track and causing frustration across teams.
Recognizing the need for a more streamlined and efficient process, the institution decided to adopt the CrossCap Distro solution. The Distro platform offered the capability to centralize the vast amount of store profile data, integrate planning, distribution, and reorder processes, and provide a single, reliable source for all their in-store marketing collateral.
Moreover, the institution saved more than $150K just from estimation errors alone, which had previously been a significant drain on its budget. The financial institution reported an 8% annual savings on overall print, distribution, and reorders, a clear indicator of the operational efficiency achieved.
In today’s complex world, it’s important to understand the importance of data-driven decision-making. The Distro platform’s ability to centralize and streamline data not only enhances operational efficiency but also provides valuable insights that can improve strategic decisions.

This shift in focus is crucial in today’s competitive financial landscape, where building strong customer relationships is key to maintaining a competitive edge.
In conclusion, implementing the CrossCap Distro solution facilitated a complete transformation of this financial institution’s marketing campaign planning and distribution process.
