How to Enable Virtual Account Openings with Secure E-Signatures
Date: Nov 04, 2014

View archived webinar

Electronic signature use is widespread within the banking industry but until now the promise of a truly ‘virtual branch’ was out of reach because many account opening documents require a scripted handwritten signature – that meant signing either the old-fashioned way with pen and paper, or coming into a branch in-person to e-sign on a bank-owned signature capture device. Both options lead to a negative customer experience and prevented remote on-boarding of new customers.

Join Silanis for an educational webinar to discover:

  • How banks can transform customers’ personal mobile devices into a signature capture tablet
  • E-Signature and mobility adoption trends in banking
  • The top account opening use cases for e-signing with a mobile device
  • Legal and security best practices to ensuring enforceability
  • Real ROI data from your peers in the banking industry

This presentation is intended for any business or IT executive, or digital strategist that is tasked with creating a convenient, personal and differentiated bank customer experience.

Join us to discuss experiences in agile adoption, SAFe, and internal transformation in enterprise organizations.

In particular, within large financial services organizations, teams face immense challenges in both the adoption of Agile and Lean principles but also scaling that adoption to an enterprise level.

Listen as our expert speakers identify the key challenges, including the need to identify value, provide the right data for various audiences, and the inherent required culture shift. Learn how to avoid some common pitfalls as you and your own organization embark on this same transformation.

Using Predictive Analytics to Take Banking Relationships to the Next Level
Date: Sep 19, 2014

View archived webinar

It wasn’t all that long ago that banking customers were defined by their account type, which didn’t allow banks to see the entire relationship a client had with the institution. Today, however, the customer is finally the central focus for most banks. As a result, banks are now starting to apply advanced predictive analytics to customer data, with the aim of anticipating a customer’s needs — well in advance. For instance, if a customer visited an information page about mortgages, perhaps a financial advisor should contact the client to go over the often confusing mortgage process. Or, maybe a customer has searched the site for “how to close an account,” following two or three calls with the call center. A few years ago, banks were not able to connect the dots. Today, predictive analytics is improving customer relations, while also providing banks with the opportunity to build stronger client relationships and sell newer products.

Join Bank Systems & Technology for a free 60-minute video webinar to learn about how banks can apply advanced predictive analytics across this organization. During the session, you’ll learn how banks can:

  • Increase customer satisfaction by anticipating customer needs.
  • Uncover business opportunities by analyzing customer data.
  • Reduce customer churn by proactively engaging with clients.

Mobile is growing fast and meeting customer expectations means addressing the dual challenge of keeping up with the pace of innovation while providing a seamless cross-channel experience. But legacy systems and silos stand in the way of faster innovation and multichannel product and service delivery.

At this free one hour webinar, you will learn:

    • How mobile and multichannel are driving higher expectations in customer experience.
    • How legacy issues are slowing down innovation in mobile and turning it into just another siloed delivery channel.

Mobile is becoming one of the top reasons for customers to switch banks, so join us and learn how to differentiate your mobile offerings.
