Automation of banking services and related financial operations has been something that has been placed as a top priority in key financial markets. This is because financial institutions all over the world want to enhance their efficiency and customer service. As a matter of fact, more clients are currently paying attention to how innovative a bank is so that they can be assured that they can access more services in a technologically advanced manner.
In the past, banks operated manually and their transactions ran in isolation, in a slow manner and with minimal integration across the core banking system. This made them prone to error and subject to variables within a human workforce. As a result, this limited its profit per customer and enabled competitors who were more agile to gain more from the market share.
For most banks and financial institutions, technology has been at the core of their current transformation. However, the process of automation faces obstacles due to the cost and disparate technology. According to Bill Gates, automation that is applied to an operation that is inefficient has a higher probability of magnifying the inefficiency. This means that financial institutions have to find a way in which they can effectively apply technology to the right financial operations. So how can they do this?
