Belfius Bank is the winner in the Business Analytics category and is using Lily Enterprise to drive continuous, real-time actionable insights for superior customer interactions.

The short time to market enabled Belfius to strengthen their position in the mobile market, and take great strides towards advancing their market leader position through better customer experience management. Belfius can gain greater customer visibility, with real-time scoring and analytics across its channels and products. Its roadmap focuses on clear use cases, including next-best-offer, cross- and upsell, loyalty and retention programs.
