Digital Banking Models to Lead Transformation in 2021 and Beyond 1 of 3

Digital Banking Models to Lead Transformation in 2021 and Beyond 1 of 3 768 487 Exist Software Labs

In a world that keeps closing in to even more modernized digital banking models, global initiatives that are being put into place to slash the reliance on physical touchpoints only make perfect sense.

Not only that private sectors are immensely investing in going online, but there has also been some legal support for the modern banking cause.

In the Philippines alone, House Representative Joey Salceda of the 2nd district of Albay has been working on the Virtual Banking Act’s legislation. One of the aims of this act is to increase foreign participation. Simultaneously, it intends on learning more about financial technology from global resources.

Additionally, the Central Bank issued a regulation last July. It proposes to make digital banks a new classification distinct from universal, commercial, thrift, rural, cooperative, and Islamic banks.

Modernizing personal banking and fintech opportunities are also eminent as the tech-savvy, young populace is dominating the workforce. This age group is also currently considered as the biggest earners. Doubtlessly, they would desire nothing less than convenient and easy ways to accomplish day-to-day tasks, say, managing their finances.

Government, private sectors, and the plurality of population – when these three vital stakeholders are walking the same path, progress is always in sight.

Such strongly signals that digital banks, and even neo-banking, are becoming more and more accepted in the country each passing day.

Neo-banking is a term for modern-day digital banking that mainly capitalizes on the rampancy of the internet. Its operations and offerings are heavily online-based. Most of the time, neo-banks do not have physical branches.

With the increasing support for this concept, the country can expect a huge wave of new players in the industry. This poses a further threat to traditional banks that are still taking much time in improving their digital playing cards. Therefore, traditional banks investing in solutions that can take these threats head-on should become more mainstream.

However, every investment comes with risks for both enterprises and the target users. From these risks sprout doubt. With this at hand, how should banking and fintech providers mitigate the half-hearts of the market? At the same time, how will they ensure that the technologies they will be offering are what the market needs, wants, and deserves?

If we are to aggregate all the floating idealisms on addressing this, we will boil down to few specific models that will fit the bill in the face of growing and changing market demands and needs.

As banking solutions developers, we believe that digital banking technologies should lay their building blocks on human-centric, cloud-ready, and threat-elusive models. Here is why:

People-centric Model

Adding value to a person’s day-to-day life through technology is the ultimate goal of any digital transformation efforts. It is the ultimate goal that enterprises should aspire to achieve.

Such entails that the human factor should be the utmost consideration in forging ahead. That does not only include the customer-end but as well as the employees. Is the solution fit for their needs? Will the solution require fewer efforts from them, thus making their tasks smoother to accomplish? Will it give them the relief that they did not know they needed?

Cloud-Ready Model

Modern times and younger markets call for an up-to-date approach. Implementing cloud technology into the banking arena improves data generation and processing.

Cloud-ready solutions are also known to be more scalable and flexible, allowing developers to add software improvements effortlessly.

The Central Bank is in full support of deploying banking processes in the cloud even before the pandemic. Nevertheless, the health crisis still boosted the normalization of the cloud-ready model and is now being utilized by several banks in the country. Still, the use of cloud computing in banking is yet to be fully explored.

Threat-Elusive Model

One of the most critical decision breakers for prospect users is whether banking online is secure or not. Security threats over the internet are pretty rampant, so where they are coming from is understandable.

Howbeit, there are tools and ways to address these concerns, assuring the users that performing their banking matters online can be a safe option.

Adapting these models is not impossible anymore. One merely needs the right direction and resources for it to take shape. Better the soonest, as the first to market always has an advantage.

But we will cut you short this time. Stay tuned to our next blogs as we are about to explore each model more rigorously.

Digital Banking Transformation: Why go Digital?

Digital Banking Transformation: Why go Digital? 768 487 Exist Software Labs

Going full-on digital in the banking sector has been the talk for years. And if there’s one thing that the recent pandemic called the attention to, it’s that pushing for digital banking transformation is the way to go.

So, why is it the right choice for banks to go digital?

Harnessing today’s technologies to advance the way we bank can work beyond expectations. Not to mention, it has the power to propel the state of digital banking to new heights and reinvent the flow of the world’s finance.

Now is the best time to realize your organization’s digital banking initiatives. Stepping up and gearing towards the future of banking technology are redefining the expectations of both executives and customers.

The shift of customers to digital banking

While we can agree that consumers are kings, digital banking makes managing finances simpler and accessible at any time, anywhere. Visiting a physical branch to make deposits, apply for loans, transfer money, and pay for bills is now an option. These services (and more) are becoming readily available through digital devices.

In the Philippines, ATM transactions declined by 25% and value by 30% since the onset of ECQ. At the same time, money transactions using e-payment services spiked. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas also reported that around 4.1 million digital accounts were created among banks and e-wallet platforms. These numbers represent that Filipinos are changing their preferences from traditional to mostly digital due to social distancing protocols.

Looking forward, 3 in 5 Filipino bankers will switch to a more digital experience in banking. While 4 in 5 will open new accounts with competitor banks that will dissolve their relationship with their first bank. (Fintech and Digital Banking 2025 report) With this at stake, it’s an instinct for banks to get right into the competition and face it head-on.

Attracting and retaining customers has always been a challenge, but now, it’s a step further. And a step towards finding the right technologies for the right services is a step towards the right direction.

Common challenges faced by banks

With this in mind, there must be challenges that banks encounter that hinder the digitalization of their banking system, right? As a matter of fact, yes.

Based on a report, 86% of banking executives say that their legacy banking system is too complicated and the main reason that hinders them from enabling digital interactions with their customers. In the same study, even though 86% of the respondents agree that digital is a high priority, only 19% have a clear digital strategy. (Boston Consulting Group’s Global Corporate Banking report, 2018)

We can infer from this survey that digital transformation has always been an integral part of most business initiatives. But, steering the ship and managing the scales to maximize this considerable investment is a struggle. In other words, banks prioritize the move to go full-on digital, but they’re moving at different paces.

What to do?

Just like with any business transformation, a strategy is first and foremost. Above all, a top-down, integrated approach starting from the C-suite with the CEO steering the ship and involving every aspect of the organization is the best course of action.

The Boston Consulting Group recommends four priorities in making this happen:

1

Reinvent the consumer journey

There are critical points in the consumer journey that matters most, and banking providers should take notice. This course of action will vary across different customer segments and will require continuous improvement and streamlining processes. The ultimate goal is to digitize the experience from start to finish.

2

Leverage the power of data

Advanced data analytics will empower banks to understand their current and potential customers better. Through data mining, or finding patterns and correlations through data, banks can use their customers’ data to predict outcomes based on their behavior. This will improve prospecting and prioritizing leads that suit best with services offered.

3

Redefine the operating model

A digital experience for speed and convenience, and a human experience for advice and resolving issues. Customers want the best of both worlds. Finding the right digital operating model for your business is up to you, whether it’s an added service, a new line of business, or a digital native.

4

Build a digital-driven organization

Prioritizing digital will require a distinctly articulated strategy, funding, talent, working agile, and company culture to take risks willingly. It’s not easy to achieve but can heap benefits in the long run.

To sum up, if traditional banks want to stay afloat, they should start and take advantage of new banking technologies. It’s also an excellent tactic to streamline the banking experience, choose the right operating strategy, and embed the digital mindset within the organization.

ROI in digital banking

But of course, going digital is not an easy feat. It will involve a lot of resources and cost you money, time, and valuable resources. Before you proceed with the investment, what’s in store for you? We know that return on investment is essential in any business transformation initiative. Knowing these can speed up executive buy-in and identify the right technologies for your bank.

There are four top reasons why executives should invest in digital banking:

1

Get more customers

Banks and financial technology companies with a digital presence attract and retain more customers. The freedom of choice for consumers to opt for a digital and human experience empowers them in handling their finances.

2

Targeted offerings

Use customer data to easily convert clients with just a tap of a button on their device. You can do more with target marketing, upselling, cross-selling, and even establish long-lasting relationships with customers.

3

No need to open a new branch

Even with more customers, it is not necessary to open new physical banks, which will save you a ton.

4

Go paperless

From sending e-statements to digital onboarding and marketing offers, you can save a lot in going digital.

Digital is the future

Keep in mind that consumers are online, so should banks be. Omnipresence is a superpower the best banks have. Allowing your customers the freedom of choice to access their finances, anywhere, any time, will increase your market share in attracting and retaining clients.

Moreover, going digital can bridge the gap between banks and their market even better. It is a race towards digital transformation, and staying behind is not a safe choice.

Digital is the future, and it’s fast approaching. If you’re looking for a solutions partner to work with you, we’re right here.
