How to make your bank ready for digital branch transformation

Global banks are keen to reduce operating costs while offering the best customer experience. Do they have to shut down their branches, adopt online banking, or self-service solutions?


Customer Journey in Banking will Never be ‘Digital’ Only

Yes, digitalization has brought an increasing level of great customer experience for banks. It has become easier to customers managing their accounts anytime anywhere. However, when it comes to complex transactions and issuing physical documents, cards, or cheques, the physical journey counts here; banks can’t just close their physical branches.


What about Transforming to Smart Digital Branch?

Before moving towards digital branch, banks should have first streamlined their customer journey before, during and after every visit, SEDCO queue management system can help to achieve this in 5 steps:
