Intense competition and need to reduce costs are pushing banks to optimize their front-office processes and infrastructure. Banking clients are frustrated with the time and duplication of effort to conduct business with the bank. They are additionally frustrated by lack of visibility into their banking relationship. The main problems faced by banks are:
- Lack of differentiated client experience due to inconsistent view of client data.
- Complex and manual processes that limit upsell and cross-sell in banking.
- Cost pressures due to maintaining disparate front office applications.
