GROUPE STERIA : BNP Paribas entrusts Steria with its 2,200-branch retail banking network


BNP Paribas has selected Steria to operate the Help Desk for its France retail banking network. Steria will provide an industrial, flexible solution specially tailored to BNP Paribas' requirements. These services will be provided from Steria's platform in Roanne, which is taking on 56 new employees to fulfil one of France's largest help desk contracts.

Developed through the Group's expertise in conducting major industrial projects and based on best market practices, the implementation of Steria's project management and processes will enable BNP Paribas to optimise its help desk performance and strongly increase satisfaction among its 35,000 users.

A sizeable challenge for Steria, as not only is it handling all local-network calls, it will guarantee a strong commitment to quality of service, making this project a genuine showcase for retail banking in France.

Help desk support is provided from a secure, dedicated platform at Steria's site in Roanne. Thanks to Steria's active work with its local partners in Roanne, 56 new experienced help desk agents, who have been trained in the BNP Paribas environment, were all hired in under three months.

Philippe Borfiga, Steria France's Facilities Management Director, says: "Our wealth of experience across help desk functions meant that we could offer BNP Paribas a pragmatic solution that affords them higher quality of service coupled with the support of an efficient and effective industrial partner."

"The dedication and professionalism shown by Steria's teams has allowed the project to be launched under optimum conditions and in line with the original schedule. The continuous improvement process based on a genuine partnership with Steria, is well and truly on track," adds BNP Paribas Network IT Manager Pascal Pincemin.
