Customers are Demanding a Digital Banking Experience

Customers are demanding a modern banking experience that delivers services, in the same manner, they are accustomed to in their day-to-day lives – on-demand, tailored to their needs, and in the palms of their hands.

The transformation to a digital bank is extremely disruptive for financial institutions who have historically provided services via disparate product lines with limited ability to share data about their customers. Small and mid-sized banks are further challenged as outsourced banking platforms are often leveraged thereby allowing the service provider to dictate the digital capabilities available.

The journey to digital banking involves:

  • Transformation to a new customer-centric operating model.
  • Optimized data capabilities delivering security, transparency, efficiency, and digital scalability.
  • New digital capabilities providing omnichannel services and engagement.

The Digital Challenge for the Digital Bank

Now imagine instead of a retailer with a single line of business, you’re a mid-sized bank with multiple products available for your prospective customers: checking and savings accounts, mortgage loans, credit cards, student loans, just to name a few. In each of these service areas, customers are interacting with you via multiple channels (online, in a branch, over the phone) and their data is potentially stored across multiple systems. A comprehensive, single view of each customer is critical to effectively tracking, managing, and serving your banking customers. The challenges include: 

  • Measuring outcomes, not outputs
  • Improving the experience of the customer
  • Increasing trust and transparency
  • Leveraging big data and analytics to improve decision-support
  • Transformation of the banking operating model

Data Drives Digital Banking
