Business Challenge

Extensive manual efforts to reap actionable insights from the branch performance report

With a wide branch distribution network, HDFC bank has a long list of hierarchy starting from the branch banking heads (BBH), regional heads (RH), circle heads (CH), cluster heads (CH), and lastly branch managers (BM). Every month the bank sends out a monthly performance report to the branch manager. These performance reports are mostly in the form of tables and charts. 

The branch managers had to manually analyze the numbers, comparing it with the monthly allotted targets, and interpret the insights to share with the next immediate head – Cluster Head. The subsequent senior manager would undergo the same procedure of manually collating all the branch performance reports of their region into one comprehensive report to present it to the next inline senior manager in the hierarchy. 

The existing system of report creation proved to be very time consuming and inefficient. The managers had to spend hours collating the data, interpreting insights, and creating personalized reports for the next inline, explaining the metrics in charts, graphs, and complicated diagrams. The manual effort required to provide personalized comprehensive reports was substantial and slowed down the overall deliveries. 

Key Problems Identified:

  • Unavailability of personalized reports across all branches.
  • Branch employees spent too much time analyzing & interpreting data in hand.
  • BBHs could not do a quick analysis of the sales performance.
  • Manual data extraction from MIS for report creation.
