Why Digital Transformation in Banking Matters?

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic restrained us to our homes, our expectations and our needs changed. To meet the changing consumer demands banking industry is undergoing an overhaul. However, the process of digital transformation in banking is nothing short of complex and full of intricacies.

Digital transformation in banking helps meet rising customer expectations, achieve speed, convenience, minimize operating costs, and fend off competition. The surge of new fintech companies and the shifting of tech companies into financial services is a warning sign for existing banks. It is high time for them to transform their business digitally.

Digital transformation in banking helps to create a more cohesive and personal digital consumer journey. It helps seamless customer movement from marketing to sales and financing to in-app billing to customer support. It saves money in the long run, frees up staff for other value-added activities, increases customer satisfaction, and saves time with automated processes.

Digital services pile up a huge amount of data. This data helps a great deal in improving your business models through actionable insights and informed decisions. Big data analytics help you understand customer needs from a new perspective, identify opportunities, fill gaps, optimize products or services, and automate solutions.

Digital Transformation Solves Common Banking Problems

Apart from causing some unprecedented damages, COVID-19 highlighted the digital inefficiencies in the banking sector. Digital transformation in banking would have definitely prevented much of such chaos.

Customer Service: Many banks do not have the bandwidth to serve a large customer base needing immediate support. Lack of digital infrastructure caused hindrance in customer success. Customers expect higher responsiveness and more empathy from banks.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP): Banking processes are largely manual and dependent on humans. Hence it forbids many from getting the financial assistance they need in bad times. Failure to imply work from home culture and inadequacy of required digital resources lead to sour customer relations.

Application Processing: Manual processes, lack of training, and missing technology tools delayed application processing. Error-prone system and laid-back attitude in banking employees towards accepting change is also a cause of concern.

Communication Siloes: The complex legacy phone systems having limited bandwidth failed to address consumer problems. Delayed loan applications, lengthy waiting hours, and the inability to reach the right person at the right time damaged consumer’s trust in banks. It ultimately hurts brand integrity

Dissatisfied Customers: Even though many banks have websites, mobile apps, and an array of online services, people faced challenges in accessing their accounts and spending their own money. Inappropriately digitized customer journey increased customer dissatisfaction bringing a bad name to the banks.
