How Can Banks Use Technology to Bridge the Physical and Digital Worlds?

On 19thand 20thMay, 500+ senior bank executives and industry experts will gather in London to discover how pioneering banks are meeting ever-growing customer expectations through a range of self-service and digital banking solutions

Customer behaviour is changing – banks must be agile to stay in the game

Banking in 2020 is unrecognisable compared to the turn of the millennium, with many consumers now preferring to use online technologies – particularly smartphones – to access banking services. Customer interactions are changing, and the industry has seen a rise in challenger banks poaching customers from traditional incumbents by focusing on the customer experience.

Despite the rapid pace of change, many banks still operate a siloed model, working with legacy systems, and lacking smooth channel interoperability. This can cause the loss of valuable engagement between bank and customer – leaving banks vulnerable to competitors.

RBR’s Managing Director, Dominic Hirsch, comments: “Developments in technology, changing customer behaviour, new entrants and innovation are radically transforming the ways in which banking services are delivered and used. It is critical that retail banks ensure customer engagement is seamless and relevant – in every channel”.
