patented solution to financial institutions using the Kony

industry’s leading AI-driven marketing automation solution to our
clients,” said Jeffery Kendall, executive vice president and general
manager, Kony DBX. “The growing popularity of digital banking provides
great convenience to consumers, yet also presents challenges for banks
and credit unions seeking to engage with customers who don’t visit
branches. Offering Micronotes’ solution is a game changer because it
gives traditional banks and credit unions an edge against digital-only
and challenger banks that already fully harness AI-driven analytics.
Because Micronotes is used by organizations of all sizes, its
state-of-the-art capabilities help level the playing field for
institutions that use Kony DBX’s powerful digital banking platform.”

products and solutions to its expansive client base. Now, those banks
and credit unions can take advantage of Micronotes’ AI solution to
validate customers’ needs and make appropriate offers that generate
qualified leads and drive sales.”
