Stop. Pause. Rethink.

Digital transformation programs will continue but they will need rethinking in light of the pandemic. Banks are now looking for short-term approaches that can deliver business outcomes quickly. Here are three urgent challenges we’re hearing from our clients:

  • To grow our banking business, how can we leverage AI to generate deeper customer insights and greater personalised engagement?
  • To drive down cost, how can we reduce legacy and respond more flexibly to market disruption using automation and cloud banking solutions?
  • To improve productivity, how can we provide a digital workplace that is secure, offers modern collaboration tools and allows staff to do their best - wherever they’re working?

Read our banking challenges guide for practical, short-term solutions to these immediate challenges, including our Banking Accelerator solution based on AI and designed to amplify customer engagement in three key areas.

Listen to our banking experts, Nic Merriman, Michelle Baxter and Saurabh Verma, talk to The Banker about handling urgent challenges, such as customer trust, cost optimisation and getting ready for growth.
