Households

Use the Household pages to create, update, and track household records.

A household is a group of contacts generally sharing a common link or association such as a family (parents and children) who live at the same address within the same house. A household allows contacts to be grouped together and can track the contact groupings, allowing a contact to be grouped in to one or more households or contact groups. Financial institutions and individual users, such as bankers, advisors and relationship managers, have many different uses for grouping contacts. The related information for households can be accumulated from the contacts who are linked to the household.

A household provides valuable segmentation information on the household as a whole, as well as a summary of information about the household member contacts. You can use the Households pages to identify and capture demographic information about a household. You can also use the Household pages to review customer’s financial accounts, products, and contact information that is associated with that household. This information allows you to assess customers’ data.

Grouping all of a client’s accounts by household allows a financial institution to identify a client’s value to the organization and seek opportunities to cross-sell and upsell additional products and services to the client, such as homeowner’s insurance and loans for children’s education. In addition, the ability to view all of a customer's financial accounts by household allows a financial institution to view the household’s overall financial position.
