With the introduction of ATMs, consumers were thrilled that they could do basic banking chores whenever it was most convenient. Expectations are much higher today, with customers wanting to do all their banking whenever, wherever and however they want. Consumers are not being wooed by table stake offerings like no-fee or interest checking but with promises of convenient and exceptional service. Retail banking is faced with delivering more service options and a remarkable customer experience – not to mention battling increasing security threats – all while keeping costs down and profits soaring. To make that happen, the organisation must work together: across the back and front office, across all customer channels, and across geographies and time zones. Aspect has helped scores of our retail banking customers accomplish just that.
