Coconut Software was founded in 2007 by Katherine Regnier. Coconut brings a deep and focused expertise in the financial services space across channels to help improve the member and client experience with financial institutions. Coconut’s appointment scheduling, queue management, and video banking platform combines on-location and digital channels, providing self-service booking and curbside pickup, online and physical queuing, wait time tracking, callback requests, virtual meeting support, and contact center integration.
Coconut Software and Twilio have been collaborating for years to provide this connectivity while ensuring financial institution clients get timely reminders about their upcoming appointments. This functionality has significantly decreased the no-show rate for these appointments. Recently, Coconut expanded their capabilities to include Twilio's Video product, which helps Coconut's financial institution customers provide exceptional remote engagement experiences to their customers and members. Coconut Software chose Twilio’s video offering due to its security, reliability, and scalability to help ensure financial institutions could depend on Coconut for their virtual meetings today and in the future.
Along with the reliable and secure video solution that Coconut has built with Twilio, clients of Coconut are now able to use their video and audio conferencing solutions – which have also been built on Twilio! Coconut’s solution is browser-based, which helps to reduce technical requirements and compliance required in the financial services industry is achieved via the recording feature. Pairing all of this with screen sharing, audio dial in, and mobile support allows any member or client to engage with their financial institution on the channel that’s the best for them.
Founded in 2008, Twilio offers programmable communications tools and has also become a leading Customer Engagement Platform, according to Omdia’s 2022 Customer Engagement Platform Report. Twilio provides APIs to send and receive text messages, connect members and customers remotely over a reliable and secure video service, and perform other communication functions. Pairing Twilio’s platform with Coconut’s industry expertise, financial institutions can find the right partner and vendor to provide a reliable and scalable customer or member experience platform built to their needs. Coconut also specializes in configurable, industry-specific integrations that provide their clients with excellent solutions with an exceptional speed to market.
