How do you transform your bank?

Avanade helps banks transform in three ways:

  1. Modernize your infrastructure
  2. Motivate your people
  3. Move to Future-Ready

Modernize your infrastructure
3 in 4 believe existing IT systems are no longer fit to address emerging digital business requirements.1 Consumers want an experience that is seamless and smooth. Regulations are changing all the time. Banks are under increasing pressure to improve their cost-income ratio. IT modernization is the only way to achieve real digital transformation. Learn more.

Motivate your people
Banks want to differentiate around the customer journey. Transforming the workplace is the way to do it. Our approach enables employees to offer a better banking experience through modernized platforms, a reimagined banking culture and optimized operations. This is what workplace experience (WX) is all about. According to MIT CISR, those banks that get it right double customer satisfaction and innovation while increasing profit by 25%.2 Learn more.

Move to Future-Ready
Future-ready banks expect digital transformation to yield 17% ROI.3 But it’s hard to transform your bank, even if the prize is clear. How do you become future-ready? Join up EX/CX, drive cost reduction through intelligent automation and develop an innovator’s mindset. Such banks can not only adapt quickly to disruption, they can lead, forcing competitors to adapt to them. Learn more.
