Accelerating Financial Inclusion – from Cloud Banking & Shared Service Platforms to Delivery

 

 

Financial institutions have been cautious adopters of cloud based technology.  However, this is rapidly changing with more than 60% of global banks processing the majority of their transactions in the cloud.  By harnessing the power of the cloud – low cost, scalability and security, as well as providing access via alternative delivery channels such a mobile and web, customers have the convenience to transact anyhow, anywhere and anytime. Industry surveys have shown a strong correlation between an increasing digitalized customer base and financial institutions with a cloud strategy. With electronic banking and digital payments on the rise, cloud based solutions will only continue to grow.

Shared Service models hosted in the cloud bring digital financial services within reach for smaller institutions, while at the same time, expanding accessibility and convenience for customers. No longer limited to basic features, such platforms enable clients to access a full range of services including mobile banking, ATM and POS solutions. Integration options further enhance the user experience by creating networks from existing branch infrastructure and connecting to payment partners such as Bill aggregators, Telcos, and Government.  When combined, the power to accelerate financial inclusion is undeniable.
