Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV) enables clients worldwide to create and deliver financial services experiences in step with the way people live and work today. For 35 years, Fiserv has been a trusted leader in financial services technology, helping clients achieve best-in-class results by driving quality and innovation in payments, processing services, risk and compliance, customer and channel management, and insights and optimization.

Introduction

Fiserv is the leading global provider of information management and electronic commerce systems for the financial services industry. Fiserv drives innovation that transforms experiences for financial institutions and their customers. With more than 16,000 clients, delivering information on a large scale is of utmost importance to Fiserv. But with fluctuations in the global economy, Fiserv quickly became concerned about the cost associated with its number one way of delivering information—live events.

Problem

Fiserv’s customers needed to reduce expenses in any and all ways in response to sudden economic changes. Fiserv itself postponed its annual in-person meeting. However, it still needed to deliver important financial information and education to its clients in a way that served the interests of both senior executives and day-to-day users. Fiserv finally landed on the idea to replace its traditional in-person meeting with an online event to save time and reduce costs, but it needed a powerful, engaging and customizable platform to do so. It needed to replicate the same feel of a live event and garner the same if not better results for itself and its clients.
