Cooperation between BCA AG and FinTech expert fino: New consulting tool “fino-Cockpit” supports intermediaries

Kassel. BCA AG and FinTech company fino have expanded their partnership. With the fino-Cockpit solution, the Oberursel-based brokerage service provider is now expanding its portfolio of offerings to include sales-supporting real-time analysis for efficient customer consulting.

The number of brokerage customers who want the best possible financial and insurance advice digitally is increasing. Users want to use smartphones, tablets and the like to make their investments, compare policies, and gain insight into securities accounts and insurance solutions. In addition, evaluations show that consumers continue to prefer the personal expertise of the broker professional. As an advocate of the hybrid advisory model, BCA AG offers comprehensive professional and digital services for optimal advice and customer care, so that a broker can remain successful in the market in the long term.

“Brokers who adapt to hybrid customer behavior with our digital solutions and personal expertise are ideally equipped for the future,” says Roman Schwarze, BCA AG’s Chief IT Officer.

fino-Cockpit: Identify customer needs in the shortest possible time

In line with the needs of its broker partners, BCA AG’s existing range of agile consulting solutions is being successively expanded to include modern digital tools. Recently, for example, the fino-Cockpit analysis software was integrated into the product portfolio as a white-label solution. For this purpose, BCA AG is the first broker pool in Germany to cooperate with the Hessian FinTech fino. The latest digital solution offers brokers a holistic view of existing customer data, thus improving the advisory process and also identifying potential insurance gaps.

After the customer’s approval, fino-Cockpit analyzes the account transaction data in real time and provides both the customer and the broker with the evaluation result as an encrypted PDF file. On this basis, the advisor can prepare optimally for the customer meeting and submit suitable product proposals. This means that the preparation process is completely frictionless and ultimately paperless for both the consultant and the customer. The traditional insurance folder does not have to be brought along or looked through.

Data-based analyses essential

Aleksandar Jeremic, Managing Director of fino digital, very much welcomes the expanded cooperation with BCA AG and summarizes the advantages of the software for brokers as follows: “With the help of AI-supported account and data analysis, our solution identifies current customer needs within seconds and clearly prepares the relevant results for the advisor. This creates sales impulses in real time that can be used for meaningful and tailored product recommendations. In addition, no programming or installation effort is necessary for the data protection-compliant use of fino-Cockpit, so brokers can start immediately.”

And Roman Schwarze adds: “The PSD2 payment services directive has long since arrived at insurers. This makes flawless document and data analysis all the more important. Thus, it is not only about collecting data, but also deriving the right decisions from it. That’s why we are delighted to be cooperating with fino as a BaFin-certified company. The FinTech experts have extensive know-how in translating account transaction data into valuable information.”
