case study: bac credomatic

BAC Credomatic is the leading consumer banking institution in Central America. With operations in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama, BAC Credomatic has more than 22,000 employees.
As Social Media Strategy Lead at BAC Credomatic, Claudia conceived and led the implementation of regional social media efforts as part of the Digital Transformation business unit, an office created with a direct line to the CEO. 

“Accompanying this digital push was a renewed focus on digital marketing, which involved the consolidation of BAC Credomatic’s social media presence,” Páez explained. “A milestone in this process was merging 11 Facebook accounts into one global page. This enabled us to govern our online presence centrally, while still allowing local flexibility in content creation and campaigns. With the consolidated presence, we reached more than 1.4 million fans – more than Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Scotiabank or Barclays UK.” -Jose Manuel Páez, Chief Digital Officer, BAC Credomatic

goals & challenges 

Like many legacy consumer banks, BAC Credomatic desired digital transformation across the customer lifecycle. One of the key areas requiring digital transformation was the process of customer acquisition through digital channels.
