Bank of Cyprus Sends a Message

Bank of Cyprus, a major Cypriot financial institution, has chosen to use the Wirefast SMS service.

Systems Development Manager for Bank of Cyprus, said: “The ability for our customers to request and receive information from us by SMS is a core part of our business and is key to making our banking services responsive and efficient. The Wirefast Messaging solution allows us to receive, process and record messages from customers, and to deliver ad-hoc or automated template SMS messages and the use of this service has reduced the number of in-bound calls by about 80%.

We have gained significant process improvements and cost savings from implementing this solution, and we are seeking to extend the range of services available to our customers.  The fact that Wirefast is integrated with Salesforce.com was a major reason for the decision”
