Mobile First

Backbase DBP is ready to run on any mobile operating system out-of-the-box. It is pre-optimized for cross-channel customer journeys where a transaction begins on one device but ends on another. Typically, a customer may begin researching loan interest rates on their mobile but move on to another device, such as a tablet or PC, to fill in the form. They may also contact the call center for assistance in completing the form, in which case the service representative can look over the customer’s shoulder ‘virtually speaking’, and guide them through the application.

Backbase DBP comes with a responsively designed marketing website and internet banking environment that automatically scales to the screen it’s being viewed on, whether that’s a 24” monitor or a small smartphone. It also includes a hybrid app, wrapped in native app containers, and completely native iOS and Android apps that use back-end API’s to consume the required data. You can choose one approach or mix and match until you find the mobile strategy that best suits you and your customers. Backbase DBP supports all the most commonly used platforms, including iOS, Android, and Windows.
