CIB / Digital Bank for Clients (DB4C)

 

Corporate clients have high expectations towards BNP Paribas digital capabilities, looking for improved convenience, quality of service and efficiency. To meet these expectations, CIB has the ambition to bring a true digital experience to our corporate clients throughout our complete product and services offering.

 

The aim of the CIB Digital Bank for Clients (DB4C) project is to articulate the business ambition of CIB with Corporate clients through digital channels as an integral part of our business strategy and ensure that our digital offering is further developed to support that business ambition. The plan will build on our already solid assets, as illustrated by Centric and its App store (Connexis Cash, Cortex Deposit, Cortex FX, FX+ and many more) and will look to improve our offering, integrate it into customer-designed environments and develop new customer journeys, based on the effective expectations of our users.

 

The project will be led in close coordination and cooperation with Domestic Markets to offer our international clients a seamless and state of the art experience.

 

Position Summary

 

CENTRIC is BNP Paribas’ e-Banking portal, aiming to be our corporate clients’ global entry point to the Bank’s digital services. CENTRIC is a multi-product, application-based platform configured to not only optimize a client’s operational efficiency, but help corporate treasurers manage every aspect of their day-to-day business through a single customizable solution. Whether the user wants to source real-time market intelligence and analytics, make cash or trade finance transactions, access FX hedging products or monitor and review their investment portfolio, CENTRIC not only provides them with the tools to manage their everyday business operations, it helps make their underlying business more efficient.

 

The Roll-out of CENTRIC to the existing and new clients is one of the main levers of the strategic vision to offer an efficient and best in class one-stop-shop e-banking portal for all Corporates and Institutional clients across BNP Paribas’ business lines.

 

The CENTRIC portal was launched in 2013 and deployed in Asia, Middle East and now in Europe and the Americas. To date, several thousand clients and tens of thousands users are accessing CENTRIC for their Cash Management, Trade Finance, Deposit, FX, Supply Chain etc... across more than 30 countries.

 

Massive equipment of existing and new clients with CENTRIC is to be continued with an ambitious target of doubling the client base on the portal by end of next year with progressive opening of new countries (Domestic Markets, remaining CIB geographies, etc.) and addressing new profile of clients on top of the completion of the roll-out in on-going European CIB geographies.

 

The CENTRIC Roll-out team will work closely with the CENTRIC e-Distribution team (based in Lisbon and London) as a first step to provide access to CENTRIC to a maximum of Corporates before enhancing usage of the services available within the portal.

Many interactions will be required with central and local Client Management (CLM) team, Front Officers and Legal/Product team.

 

The Roll-out team will regularly have to interact with the final client (e.g. Treasurers/CFOs) along with the Front Officer to introduce CENTRIC and clarify the migration process.
