Banks won’t succeed if they don’t put the desires of their customers above all else. The current state of the banking industry falls short of expectations for both banks and their customers, yet the market has become increasingly competitive. Whilst the reasons for this vary, falling behind will most likely lead to failure.
Staying relevant is about so much more than just bringing nice interfaces to the end customer. An integrated approach is vital, one that spans the entire user experience and a host of back-end systems and procedures. This is about bringing everything together to create a smart framework that connects all the parts of the bank to optimize the customer experience. That framework is Customer OS and its four pillars are open banking, modular banking, omni-channel banking and smart banking.
An open API strategy and the clever use of data will drive the open and modular banking components. Segmented client experiences across all channels and embracing new technologies will power omni-channel and smart banking.
