A new world is emerging, bringing with it challenges for all companies. At Société Générale, we are convinced that an entrepreneurial spirit is a powerful tool with which to reinvent ourselves.
Frédéric Oudéa Chief Executive Officer
New technologies, new client behaviours: we see this enthusiasm for digital solutions as an excellent opportunity to reinvent all aspect of the bank of tomorrow. An opportunity to develop new value-added services for our clients, real-time and personalised services available on a large scale.
Improving customer service with innovation and a digital culture
By transforming our tools and our working methods, we are renewing our relationship to our clients. We are reinventing our profession without changing our fundamental role: supporting our clients as closely as possible, helping them manage their finances optimally, advising them and making their daily lives easier.
Keeping up with digital evolution
The Societe Generale group has made the digital sector a key lever in transforming banking relationships established with its customers, whether they be individuals, institutions, large companies or private banking clients. To keep up with changing digital usage by consumers, Societe Generale is increasing its innovation in web and mobile services. Its customers therefore enjoy greater autonomy, simplicity and security thanks to the new tools, while continuing to receive support from our teams.
Collaborations and exchanges with startups and FinTech
Co-creation in startup mode
As part of the Group's digital transformation and thanks to its open innovation procedure, employees are increasingly developing innovative ideas, in a context of co-creation and in startup mode. In July 2017 during TechWeek, the Bank put the spotlight on its 6 technological innovation hubs, based around the topics of Cybersecurity, Big Data & Artificial intelligence, Cloud, Emerging Tech, Digital Workplace and Digital Process.
Innovation technology hub
The Dunes is a 126,000 m2 building complex located in Val-de-Fontenay where 5000 Societe Generale employees working in technology are based. The digital focus of this hub can be seen in the tools and services deployed and the open and collaborative working methods adopted, making it representative of the Group’s digital transformation. This major building project was designed with the employees, to give them the resources necessary to invent the bank of tomorrow.
Societe Generale nurtures and accelerates innovation in order to better serve its clients, integrating all the potential avenues offered by digital. For new uses, new services: the bank is committed to anticipating the needs of its clients and to inventing new banking solutions to meet them.
