Digital Banking & Mobile Banking

Customers want the opportunity to have traditional banking service, but at the same time expect a modern digital experience when they need it, with all the services that your big bank competitors offer. Fortunately, this is now possible for traditional banks of all sizes in a cost effective way.

Digital & Mobile Account Opening

Your existing personal or business customer will most likely apply online for their next account. Can your bank help them, or will your more digital savvy competitor get the business?

FinTech & Marketplace Lenders

Looking for a bank sponsorship or strategic partnership? We were part of the very early Bank/FinTech partnerships and have worked with some of the most successful FinTech since. Let us help you prepare and find the right bank partner.

Implementation and automation of online and mobile account opening: Can your customer open an account online? Or on mobile? Automated account opening systems through digital channels can reduce your acquisition cost by 30% or more. And protect your customers from defecting to competitors. Is your physical location or footprint restraining your growth? Can you afford to keep building costly branches? We help you:

  • Implement an effective risk management program for digital account opening
  • Introduce efficiency measurements and tracking

Banks and FinTech can complement each other through strategic partnerships. With the sharing of technology, and with the origination of loans and deposits. Don’t be left behind. Even the large banks are getting in on the act. Example is the 2015 deal Chase did with online lender On Deck Capital, to ramp up its lending to small businesses, by processing applications more rapidly and at a lower cost.
Benefits for Banks:
  • This is your opportunity to combine the best of both worlds, embracing the technologies that customers want, while maintaining the personalized service that your bank is known for.
  • Benefit from the ability to be first in line to offer state-of-the-art products and services to clients without having to foot the entire bill, especially where your bank lacks scale.
  • Leverage the marketing expertise and digital origination channels of FinTech. Enhance your digital presence and effectiveness.
  • It is not about abandoning your existing business models; it is more about reaching entire new groups of customers in a cost effective way, with new products and new sources of fee income.

  • Gain access to the resources and support needed to market your products at scale.
  • FinTech focused banks can help you navigate the regulatory and licensing environment, providing access to more states under a uniform set of regulations.
  • Gain access to more customers and capital.
