Digitization is more than just using digital technologies. As technology and customer expectations evolved, banks squeezed new systems into their existing infrastructures.

Video Banking: The Next Generation

whitePaper | October 21, 2021

Some might say Video Banking is already a "next-generation" technology, and in many ways it is. But even though using video to provide face-to-face communication with remote experts is a welcome addition to online banking, most deployments to date add little more than a trust element. We can still find much room to further improve the customer experience as it relates to video and digital banking, as we will demonstrate in this paper. Video Banking is a remote one-way or two-way connection between you and a bank representative working in a call center, branch office, or from home. There are several use cases for Video Banking, depending upon your location and need. A common Video Banking model is the Personal Teller Machine (PTM),calso called a Video Teller Machine (VTM). A PTM functions like ancautomated teller machine (ATM) outfitted with a built-in monitor, camera, microphone, and speakers to facilitate video interactions. That allows a connection with a remote banker to answer questions about transactions when you need help. PTMs often have the convenience of 24-hour service with remote bankers on a shift-based roster to cover the customer load.

The Power of Ecosystems for Banking

whitePaper | July 15, 2022

The rise of Banking as a Service (BaaS) and real-time payments (RTP) are pushing the era of digitalization to new heights, where interconnected ecosystems and the instant exchange of data are the norm. Until now, banks and other players have largely implemented piecemeal solutions on top of existing legacy core systems. This has led to extremely expensive and complex back-end systems—with lots of time and money spent trying to create interoperable services at the application level. With the move to fully interconnected ecosystems, stakeholders will have to re-think their core systems at the most fundamental level. Achieving this will be difficult, but the rewards are great. Infrastructure-level connectivity can enable banks and other players to benefit through the monetization of customer data that will provide new insights for services that can only be developed based on a fundamentally networked infrastructure.
