The role of the branch is changing, with greater focus on Self-service Financial Institutions need to re-think what their branch strategy looks like. Consumers demand more from their financial provider at a time and a place that suits them. The teller’s role is changing too, with more focus on consulting and less counting cash it’s the perfect time to optimize branch staff enabling them to add more value.
NCR is providing the next generation of Self-service by combining assistance on demand and enhanced Self-service technology. With NCR Interactive you have the capability to offer more services remotely in more locations. By deploying ITM technology as part of your branch transformation strategy you can offer your customers an alternative banking experience to the traditional in-branch model. Consumers have the power to switch from Self-service to assisted Self-service at the touch of a button.
With the touch of a button, assistance on demand allows a consumer access to a teller at anytime during a Self-service transaction. This can scale from simply providing guidance through to teller driven control. NCR Interactive reduces in-branch traffic which allows branch staff to focus on advisory and sales engagements. By taking it one step further and integrating their contact centers it’s now possible to utilize resources which will reduce IT costs, optimize branch staff, and create operational efficiencies across the entire branch network.
