The implementation of online branch is a result of  the need for Societe Generale Srbija to follow  trends and requirements of its clients, offering them a unique user experience and a chance to, perform some of the more complex financial services anywhere and even out of the working hours of the  branches.

Online branch monitors innovation in terms of products, processes, organizational changes and marketing campaigns. Its implementation included the creation and implementation of innovative software that allows the safe use of online products and services. Clients also benefit of the "one on one" support given by the bankers, who are available for consultation via video calls or live chat, which is another aspect of innovation, that requires appropriate software support and new processes in the work.
