For example, Bank of Tennessee wanted to enhance their inside processes to achieve superior speed and customer responsiveness. The Bank’s Senior Operational Officer, Will Barrett believed BPM-based process improvement was the place to start, but he also wanted to create a more mobile and collaborative enterprise social environment. “When we saw Appian, it was a match made in Heaven. Appian brings social collaboration into a business process-centric context,” says Barrett. Barrett’s team began building the new Mortgage Loan Origination application using Appian Cloud. This allowed the team to jump-start development even as it waited for the provisioning of on-premise hardware. With Appian’s unique Portable Cloud architecture, the team was able to move the entire cloud application behind the system’s firewall for deployment. Making all of that power available on an iPad/iPhone, Android or BlackBerry means Bank of Tennessee’s loan officers can interact with customers to initiate, check on, or modify a loan request from anywhere. Appian provided an enterprise social environment that is tied to the bank’s processes and directly impacts efficiency. “We have accelerated loan approvals by 30 percent, which has a direct impact on the customer experience,” Barret added.
Going forward, Appian continues to enable their BPM Suite for mobile and social capabilities which will give way to new possibilities on the ways to work and interact with business partners and ultimately serve their clients bette
