In today’s digital age, it’s clear why more and more FinTech companies and startups are getting the funds they need to surge and disrupt the markets. While the traditional banking sector faces many challenges brought about by regulation, low interest rates, outdated core banking technology, and large overhead costs, the sector continues to strive in order to find new and innovative ways to stay competitive—there has never been a better time to introduce lean, smart, and fast digital capabilities into the vertical to make banking easy, convenient, and available 24/7 for both B2C and B2B customers. The mobile first wave helps the trend, and customers are in demand for banking on their terms. CB Insights reported that in 2018, there were 1,707 deals made globally, resulting in over $39.57 billion raised by venture capital-backed FinTech companies.
As the number of FinTech companies attempting to stand out continues to grow, the challenge of keeping the customer at the heart of every interaction rises: in a time when data, cryptocurrencies, digital payments, and cashless transactions drive the markets, there is the growing challenge for companies to not lose focus on what truly matters, that is—the emotional component that defines brand loyalty and customer connection through a service experience when the customer needs it most. The experience must be delivered in all markets—at scale—to be successful and win the race against fierce competition. Technology is a differentiator in this game, and great service is the fellow teammate.
