VicSuper Case Study

Hitting Fund Under Management (FUM) targets through the implementation of an integrated digital programme of work

The objective.

VicSuper has 2 key objectives. Firstly, to ensure they meet their targets in customer acquisition and retention today. Secondly, to provide the infrastructure to deliver a leading customer experience tomorrow.

The solution.

  • Improved Acquisition Journeys.  Reviewed and modified user journeys through entry and conversion for the primary objectives.

Providing the infrastructure for the future:
