Enrollment & Communications

Traditional channels are being disrupted, and new business environments demand urgent transformation. Learn to make enrolment forms, applications and on boarding an effortless experience for all. Here you can dive into a curated collection of study materials, organised into five lessons.

Far too many people find online forms a cumbersome and time-consuming process. But not the customers of IDFC Bank  — thanks to experience maker Abhay Jahorey.

Before revamping the onboarding and enrollment processes at IDFC Bank, opening a savings account used to take hours, or even days. “Now when our customers come on the website, they’re able to not only open the account, they’re able to fund it, and within four minutes, start using it.”

That’s the kind of enrollment experience every business wants. “Simple, powerful, persuasive,” as Johorey says.

Master this marketing art to do the same for your business.

We’ve organized your Enrollment & Communications study materials into five lessons — each easily completed in 30 minutes or less. Work through one goal at a time. Apply what you learn to your current situation, then come back to take the next lesson.

01 | Eliminate friction.

You know the saying, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." The first moment your audience engages with you, is likely with an enrollment experience. So it has to be great from the get-go.

The best experience makers identify friction points and transform them into opportunities. And they manage their communications and forms from a single, centralized system, making it easy to refine and streamline the customer journey at every single touchpoint.

You can too. Do it right, and you’ll build a feedback loop of personalizing, connecting, selling, cross-selling, and nurturing a lifelong relationship. Harvard Business School found that just a 5 percent increase in customer retention could lead to an increase in profits from 25 to 95 per cent increase in profits.

02 | Eliminate friction.


02 | Be consistent.

In this age of experience, you can’t afford to let your audience slip away. Every moment of engagement counts — including every form and ongoing communication. They all need to be seamlessly interwoven across every channel and point of connection. After all, your customers’ lifetime value is at stake.

Whether they’re filling in forms, completing an application, subscribing to a list or service, or creating an account, you want to make the experience a positive one. Aim for a seamless customer journey that glides right along. Because if you introduce friction points, they’ll take their business elsewhere — long  before you have the chance to win their loyalty. 

Learn how to  make enrolment simple and convenient for your customers — and your team. 


Digital enrolment. Emphasis on the digital.

“We have a self-service model with the classic browser, website, mobile-optimized website, and app site, and also assisted digital, like our contact centers.  All of these touchpoints are seamlessly connected together.”

— Abhay Johorey, Former Head, Digital, Consumer bank, IDFC 


03 | Create unforgettable experiences.

Great performers know it’s all in the delivery.  For Johorey and IDFC, great performance means delivering a consistent brand journey and exceptional customer service — from emails to enrollment. A robust enrollment solution can help you create engaging customer experiences from beginning to end.

As you explore ways to make enrollment and ongoing communications into something that’s not only painless but laden with possibility, you’ll need a framework fit for a lifelong customer relationship.

Learn what to look for and the questions you should ask when evaluating enrollment forms and management solutions.


How to Select the Right Enrollment and Forms Management Solution

“We were looking for a technology solution that would integrate all aspects of the customer journey—which began from display and interest all the way up to actually activating the account. We did not want disparate technologies where you spend a lot of time stitching them together.”

— Abhay Johorey, Former Head, Digital, Consumer bank, IDFC 


04 | Learn from leaders.

Your enrollment experience should be more than a sum of its parts. No matter how stellar any one system, site, app, tool, or platform is, your customers will fare best when every component works in concert with the others.
The application process at Investitionsbank Berlin is a great example. As the bank looked to better digitize applications for their customers, they sought a modern, proven solution.  They now have a system that connects to their SAP and CRM systems, and even the German credit bureau. And with streamlined forms, they’ve reduced processing time by half.

You can see the same kind of results with a system that has built-in logic, responsive design, and updates that can be made automatically from one centralized place.

Advancing digitalization

05 | Learn from leaders.


05 | Prove business value.

As marketers, we all relish the feeling of a great ROI. When you overhaul just one part of the customer experience — like digital forms — you make the entire experience more convenient, unified, and effective. And you improve your entire operations.

You’ll be able to onboard new customers faster — with a lower abandonment rate.  You’ll also rev up your organization’s inner workings by lessening the labor involved in creating, updating, and managing your forms and documents. It’s a win-win for your enterprise and your customers.

According to an IDC study, users of Adobe Experience Manager Forms see an average annual savings of $242,300 per 100,000 forms and documents submitted — and a 379% three-year ROI.
