Marketing Automation Firm Micronotes Releases its FaceApp™ Interface to Connect Digital & Personal Banking

Micronotes' FaceApp interface personalizes the digital cross-sell experience with the face and name of the interviewer and creates celebrity bankers

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—July 11, 2016—Micronotes, a cloud-based marketing automation company for financial institutions, today announced the availability of its FaceApp™ interface that enables bankers to interview their own customers through the digital banking channels using their own face and name. The FaceApp interface is very engaging with campaign clickthrough rates hovering around 10%.

Micronotes FaceApp interface addresses one of the biggest challenges facing financial institution: How to stay connected to increasingly digitally engaged customers?

“Social media has trained us to look for faces in digital content,” said Devon Kinkead, founder and CEO of Micronotes. “By placing the face, name, and title of the banker with his/her interview, the FaceApp scales the interview process, drives more engagement, and creates celebrity bankers who, after thousands of digital impressions, become in-branch celebrities with customers who excitedly exclaim, ‘Hey, I know you… you’re Susan!’”

FaceApp has been made available to all Micronotes Cross-Sell™ customers. Micronotes offers an easy to install basic starter service and a fully upgradable product suite including:

  • Micronotes Cross-Sell Basic™: Allows bank marketers to easily and unobtrusively engage qualified customers online at logout using eight brief, high impact interviews.
