A paperless environment is created by the ServiceNow Financial Services platform, thus eliminating paper-based manual processes

In movies, a man walks into a bank and siphon off the entire money and walking out, providing a fake identity. We all wonder if this can be pulled off at these times when cyber security is getting much more difficult to be breached. Thanks to the development that FinTech had witnessed in the last few decades, we now have   face-reading biometric verification that makes banking more secure.

 Be it a financial transaction or other financial planning, banking is already at our fingertips. A large amount of data lies with the institution that is used by Artificial Intelligence (AI) to create services in the form of apps to render efficient personalized services. And experts suggest that in the next decade, there will be many changes creating major disruptive technology. The leap in big data, advanced analytics, and artificial intelligence bring in the big disruptive technology. Expectations for a seamless and personalized digital experience are increasing, and customers are spoilt for choice these days.

Challenges Faced by Banking Sector

According to IDC info,

  • 50% of the investment of a bank on transformational initiatives to improve its operations
  • 33% of the spend on digital transformation spend has been allocated to operational risk management alone
  • 15% of the spend on digital transformation is to improve customer experience

Note: Use it as an infographic

The challenges that financial institutions face because of which customer experience is hindered are:

  • A gap in the process across channels that are paper-based or via emails that get lost in departments
  • Processes that include different departments and are not connected, leading to communication getting lost
  • Legacy systems that are siloed and are difficult to connect workflows, queries, and data

For any banking institution to function properly, there should not be any glitches in the operational workflow. The retail banking system faces siloed legacy applications, gaps in processes, and disconnected customer and employee experiences. Operational excellence is the key to resolve these issues through which a modern and efficient process delivery can be achieved throughout the customer lifecycle.
