Digitization in the Banking Industry

Posted by Chasthi Grant on Oct 9, 2019 12:00:00 PM

Hello Again and Green Greetings!

In our last blog engagement, we explored the “Typical challenges experienced in the Banking industry”.  We touched briefly on digital banking trends and the way forward for the banking industry following the challenges experienced from a Green Office perspective.

Digitization is the new buzz word within the FinTech industry with automation, efficiency and customer experience as the main drivers.  Within the banking industry the partnership between strategy and technology create a perfect platform for digitization.  The majority of customers are techno savvy and demand more streamlined processes from their banking service provider.  Their time is valuable, and they challenge the banking industry to move towards digital platforms or face the risk of losing their business to more progressive banking service providers.

You really need to know and understand the rules of engagement of the Office Automation and Asset Financing World, as being aware of the detail can possibly save you millions!

In our world and our interaction with clients, we have accepted that the printing and print related contracts, are placed at the bottom of the food chain.  As specialist in our field, we believe that C levels in businesses should be aware of what’s going on. This information is not always filtered through the correct channels of the organisation, to ensure that contracts and pricing are properly reviewed, before it is signed.

Overcharge: What No One Is Talking About

Posted by Melliza Giliomee on Sep 11, 2019 12:00:00 PM

The expectation to deliver on an effective and efficient print environment for customers is becoming more and more important, whether it is a big corporate business with almost 3 000 assets to keep track of, or a small church down the road relying on one device to do the job. No matter your business size, you will most likely need to invest in a reliable partner to manage your devices and office automation space.

What and Why are people still printing?

Posted by Zandalee Naude on Sep 4, 2019 12:00:00 PM

It’s all good to manage print costs and have a strategy for going digital, however can you answer the question of why your people still print and what are they printing? We have found that understanding this can actually uncover areas of inefficiencies within your business.

Typically, businesses identify areas of inefficiencies by means of manual processes or escalations within a department or from clients, due to tasks being missed or not attended to. This is a top-down approach where the business would then identify the inefficient process and reach out to consultancies or technology firms to assist with the automation or digitization of this process.

Typical challenges Financial Institutions face in their printing environment

Posted by Chasthi Grant on Jul 10, 2019 12:10:07 PM

The South African Financial Institutions are well known, as ambassadors for the country.  Their contributions in sport, art and education has made phenomenal strides in improving revenue and reputation, a mutual benefit for both the institutes and the country.  The major financial institutes share similar challenges within the core industry.

These are namely:

  • Growth and market-share of the business and their portfolios,
  • Creating or improving on their customer experience ie. customer relationship,
  • Conquering new revenue streams, and last, but not least
  • Digital Transformation of their legacy systems and moving towards a paperless environment

Despite the future vision the above challenges offer, printing is still a major focus despite its challenges for the majority of the financial institutes.  Even with the launch of the newer digital platform banks (as seen in the media - Tyme and Discovery Bank), many South Africans are very much loyal to the traditional financial houses.  Ergo, printing is and will still be a requirement for many years to come.
