  11. 11. At a Glance: Case Study 1 • Bank X had 220 branches and was located in the North East U.S. area. • Before Bank X had joined CXI in June 2013, they were making an average of $150k in volume per month with their competing vendor. • With CXI’s expertise and free support in multiple departments this reduced error and labor costs and kept the process quick and seamless to implement. • We introduced them to free CEIFX Software, Marketing, Accounting, and Reconciliation: • The CEIFX software has live compliance checks, customized setup, automated transaction process, and an updated banknote verification system which allows for an easy and safe experience by reducing the chance for teller error. Also, by using a decentralized model, the suggested model, each and every branch was able to use our software and reduced costs because of the quicker process. • The marketing included desktop, wall, and window signs, statement stuffers, and quick reference cards. By promoting foreign exchange services through visual signs we were able to help bring awareness to customers about the bank’s services. Also, the statement stuffers were seasonally targeted in order to maximize profit during peaks in the year. Lastly, the quick reference cards allowed the tellers to feel much more comfortable and knowledgeable with their foreign currency services. • Free Accounting and Reconciliation allowed the bank to stay worry free and keep their costs low by not having to purchase additional software and employees. • After being with CXI for a year, they increased their average by 15% to $172k per month and approximately 160 transactions per month. • The bank can now buy & sell currency using CXI which has a larger reach to their clients.

  12. 12. At a Glance: Case Study 2 • Bank Z had 50 branches and was located in the Mid-America area. • After having some difficulty in the past with another vendor (process was too difficult to implement), they eventually stopped Foreign Exchange altogether for many years. • Eventually Bank Z joined CXI in January 2014 and their volume has shown the success they have had with CXI. • We also introduced them to free CEIFX Software, Marketing, Accounting, and Reconciliation: • The CEIFX software has live compliance checks, customized setup, automated transaction process, and an updated banknote verification system which allows for an easy and safe experience by reducing the chance for teller error. Also, by using a decentralized model, the suggested model, each and every branch was able to use our software and reduced costs because of the quicker process. • The marketing included desktop, wall, and window signs, statement stuffers, and quick reference cards. By promoting foreign exchange services through visual signs we were able to help bring awareness to customers about the bank’s services. Also, the statement stuffers were seasonally targeted in order to maximize profit during peaks in the year. The business to business marketing helped tremendously as CXI associates marketed to other banks and hotels who needed this service daily for their customers in the hopes that those locations would refer their customers to Bank Z. Lastly, the quick reference cards allowed the tellers to feel much more comfortable and knowledgeable with their foreign currency services. • Free Accounting and Reconciliation allowed the bank to stay worry free and keep their costs low by not having to purchase additional software and employees. • Bank Z is now averaging 138 transactions monthly and is growing to an average of $80k monthly in volume. Assets are now $3,482,878. • The bank can now buy & sell currency using CXI which has a larger reach to their clients and tourists. Sourced Internally
