Closing More Digital Leads with Rapid Action

Financial Services
Digital leads were relatively new for one regional bank. Differing from traditional leads in many ways, the organization was finding it difficult to bring these customers to close as often as they expected. By gaining input from the frontline and using Rapid Action, they reduced the cycle time of funding by 65% in less than three months.


The organization’s loan officers were struggling to lock and close digital leads as often as they would traditional leads because face-to-face conversation was minimal and gathering the proper documents in a timely manner was cumbersome. They wanted to give frontline lenders more training but wanted input and didn’t know where to start.

Team Engagement Strategy

A team of loan officers, support and administrative staff were engaged to solve the problem of low close-rates on digital leads. They used Rapid Action, a tool for guiding teams to success, as the foundation of their project to find success quickly in implementing employee ideas.
