Spuerkeess Direct is a new service that provides professional, interpersonal and social services to our customers. Above all, it is a tool that works alongside our branch network and our online banking service to enable our customers to carry out their main banking transactions without having to leave the house and without the need of an internet connection.
These employees are specially trained to offer a high-quality tailor-made service to customers' individual needs. All these factors enable us to offer a quick and efficient service in line with our customers’ expectations.
It is a centre of expertise that brings together specialist advisers offering the same services as any other Spuerkeess branch, with one difference: communications are conducted remotely and customers do not need to leave their home.
Spuerkeess Direct employees provide all-round expertise, covering all the products and services offered to our retail customers, as well as assistance and support for the bank’s digital and electronic solutions. The team therefore offers complementary skills so that it can resolve problems and execute transactions as quickly as possible.
After its pilot phase in October 2019, the Spuerkeess Direct team is now composed of employees with proven professional experience in various banking activities that Spuerkeess covers. The size of this new team is subject to adaptation to be able to meet all customer needs.
