After a branch redesign failed to meet expectations, Mashreq Bank approached allen international to evaluate the new retail bank design and devise a rollout strategy which would deliver cost savings and revenue growth.

Our strategy involved using digital communications, furniture upgrades and removing anything which didn’t add value.

Most of Mashreq Bank’s branches are now using the new concept which reduced costs by 70% whilst showing an 18% increase in revenues.
