Sachin: We currently use an external product, from Netcore, which typically involves designing of the communication and pushing the emails to the intended recipient.
Santosh: What are the main challenges that you have faced while implementing or using marketing automation in your organisation?
Sachin: Data security is the biggest challenge we face as a financial institution, hence going in for an external intervention is not very desirable. However, in our attempt to keep costs low, investing in an in-house system becomes challenging. Hence, it’s always a fine line that we tread between cost and efficiency.
