c. ATM card Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam – Agribank .

Card business development is an objective necessity of the global linkage trend; diversifying services and modernizing banking technology for banks in the process of integration into the region and the world, including Vietnam Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development.

NHNo has an extensive branch network with more than 2,000 branches and nearly 30,000 bank staff. In addition, NHNo has established agency relationships with 850 banks in 90 countries. This is a favorable condition to meet the needs of domestic and international card users.

Compared with other banks, Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam entered the Vietnamese card market later and is a “later”.

After 4 years of participating in the card market, the bank has issued more than 1.5 million cards, accounting for 17% of the card market share among nearly 40 banks participating in card activities in Vietnam. This bank has a relatively wide acceptance network, including 1,200 ATMs and thousands of POS terminals, successfully deploying pay-by-phone service with those two other mobile networks. are Vinaphone and Viettel Mobile.

7.What do people understand about this product.

The utility of a bank card is to use it to pay for goods and services instead of using cash, but over 70% of customer transactions on ATMs today are only for withdrawing money. Banks are currently implementing payment for services and goods by card such as paying insurance premiums, electricity bills, landline phone charges, and mobile phone charges.

However, customers using bank cards to pay for these services are only about 30% of the total transactions.

+ Those who like it, those who don’t.

The transfer of salary through the account helps many people when they have a need to withdraw to spend and get used to banking services. However, when the salary is transferred to the account, it takes about 1-3 days to have cash in hand, so when there is a need to spend right after the company pays the salary, it is really inconvenient for those who receive the salary through the bank. card.

+ Not used to shopping with cards.

Along with the development of the ATM system, banks are also racing to install card machines in shopping malls, restaurants, and hotels. However, although the number of points of acceptance (POS) has increased rapidly in recent times. Recently, payment sales through this system are still very sluggish.

Data from Vietcombank in Ho Chi Minh City shows that in the past year, the revenue of withdrawing money from ATMs is up to 1,000 billion VND/month, while the payment through card-accepting points is only about 5 billion VND/month. One of the reasons why most consumers are not interested in using cards in daily payments is that the points of installation of POS machines are uneven, where there are no places. This leads to the mentality of many people that the most secure thing when going out on the street is still having a wallet (face) in the pocket.

One of the reasons people do not pay by card is because the utility of bank cards is not high.

8. Problems still exist.

From the above situation, a number of observations can be drawn.

Firstly, commercial banks only pay attention to the number of cards and card size. In order to compete to attract customers, many commercial banks offer no cards to customers, that is, no card issuance fees, but the cost of producing card blanks and other related costs is at least 30,000 VND/card. However, card service quality is not properly concerned. Even issuing free cards to customers but they use it or not, commercial banks do not need to know.

Second, the level and quality of card services of Vietnamese commercial banks are lagging behind the requirements of reality and lagging behind regional and international standards. Through the process of propaganda, promotion, persuasion of customers, etc., now a large number of businesses, agencies, organizations and officials, workers, and even students have realized the utility of card service, they willing to accept this service. But the real utility of the ATM card service is not guaranteed by commercial banks. Banks are now also having to calculate the cost of investing in ATMs, POS machines (card machines). With a local investment, banks have to spend a lot of money, because the price of each ATM is about 20,000-30,000 USD, the price of POS machine is about 800-900 USD. Meanwhile, if banks cooperate, the number of card acceptance points will increase exponentially.Because the points accepting payment of bank cards are still limited, the inadequacy when choosing a method of paying for goods and services by bank card has made withdrawal from ATMs popular.

Third, the type of ATM machine, card service technology of commercial banks imported or purchased from different banks, from different countries, different generations of machines, so there is a problem when connecting. , prolonged and inadequate quality that the customer is the first to bear. Not to mention many cards, but the machine is too few.

On average, there are 1,750 people crammed together to use an ATM, a very small percentage, not to mention that the distribution of the ATM system is uneven in localities as well as in areas within the same area. local.

Fourth, there has not been a synchronous organization of stages in card services. That is, not paying attention to professional training for operators, maintenance, maintenance and other services related to ATM services.

Fifth, Vietnamese commercial banks still only pay attention to credit activities. Because this business field brings 95%-97% of income for many commercial banks. Meanwhile, the ATM card service has not yet collected card issuance fees and has not yet collected fees for cash withdrawal at ATMs, which new commercial banks expect to temporarily use demand deposit balances with low interest rates. cardholder’s account to lend only.

For commercial banks, the balance on the card account is not much and often fluctuates, so the card business is of course a loss. Therefore, small and medium-sized commercial banks, like most joint-stock commercial banks , develop new card services with a “movement” nature, not for business efficiency purposes.

Even for state-owned commercial banks, perhaps only the Foreign Trade Bank is profitable in card business, while other state-owned commercial banks have to wait at least 2-3 years before they can. revenue to cover expenses, currently at a loss. Therefore, the quality of card services is not interested by commercial banks.

Especially, when a series of countries and territories in the region such as Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, China… are actively switching to EMV-standard smart cards with higher security. Card fraudsters are tending to move their activities to Vietnam, because the vast majority of Vietnamese people are using magnetic cards – cards that are easily counterfeited. Faced with this risk, many Vietnamese banks still seem to be “as calm as ever”. There have also been a number of lawsuits for losing money from ATM cards.

Maybe in some cases, the fault is on the customer’s side, but the solutions of many banks are often not “reasonable”. In most of these lawsuits, users lose because the bank is always “holding the handle”. The work of equipping customers with card security knowledge seems to be done in a loose way and lacks proper attention. According to the State Bank, as of November 2007, 30 banks with card payment services have issued more than 8.28 million cards with 130 different brands, of which domestic cards account for 93.87%. There are about 4,280 ATMs nationwide and 22,959 card payment machines. Currently, there are card alliances formed such as Smartlink Company (25 members), East Asia Card Alliance (5 members)… PART III: PROMOTION COMMUNICATION SOLUTIONS FOR SUCCESS CARD APPLICATION IN THE PERIOD 2008- 2009.

Through the process of analyzing and evaluating the current status of communication activities as well as the actual situation related to the bank’s business activities, the card product is currently entering the development stage. profit from this activity but the future is very promising. There are many substitute products on the market with high similarities, the competition environment is extremely fierce. Therefore, in this period, it is necessary to carry out promotional communication programs for card products in order to persuade to change awareness and remind consumers, to increase the rate of product preference among those who know it. So how to build these programs effectively is the solution that this topic focuses on implementing.

I.Determine target customers.

The demand for cards today is very great, most banks rely on relationships to promote the sale of ATM card services. On the other hand, due to the incomplete infrastructure, it causes a number of problems (such as: being swallowed a card while performing the correct withdrawal operations, ATM runs out of money, etc.), and the psychology of liking to use it. Cash makes consumers hesitant to buy or try card products. As such, there is still a large number of untapped consumers. With the advantage of being the leading bank in the industry and having more than 2,200 branches and transaction points distributed nationwide with nearly 30,000 employees, the bank’s target customers in the past few years. Currently, the subjects are often traveling, working in remote provinces, students, and couples.

I. Communication goals.

On the basis of the bank’s general business strategy, the communication objectives are:

– Build a unique image of the Success card that has a clear place in the mind of the target customer.

III. Budget for communication and promotion.

Promotional communication budgets are determined using a percentage of predicted revenue method combined with a goal and mission-based approach. Because to achieve the goal, it is necessary to spend a large enough budget, but if it is too large than the company’s ability, it will not be possible. For example, communication goals can bring short-term or long-term results, but we determine the budget according to the year’s planned revenue will not be reasonable but must be based on the accumulation of many years to achieve. long-term goals. The promotion budget of the Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development is limited to 0.55 0.75% of the previous year’s revenue, which is reasonable and feasible. The specific budget for each tool is: advertising 45%, Direct selling and promotion 15% each, PR activities 15%, the remaining 10% is for Direct Marketing.
