If you would have asked me 34 years ago upon initiating my career that I would create a disruptive technology that is transforming retail banking
I would have asked, "What is disruptive technology?" Thus my career from Advertising Executive, Branch Designer to Technology Pioneer has been a fun
evolutionary journey mired in learning, creativity and technology innovation. It has been far more enjoyable and rewarding than words can express.
The concept of Video Banking was initially conceived in the spring of 1997. Our design group had just completed the build out of branch on the UCLA
campus. As part of the design we integrated Diebold's Remote Teller System sitting next to the very first interactive video conferencing system installed
in a retail location. I remember looking at both technologies sitting side by side and decided that if I could just merge the two concepts together
it would allow consumers greater access to financial solutions while creating significant efficiencies for Financial Institutions.
It would take another 10 years from concept to market introduction before we commercialized the uGenius Personal Teller Machine. After selling uGenius
Technology to NCR my primary focused has been the evolution of Video Banking onto Mobile Devices. With POPio we have created the most collaborative
and secure video banking platform for mobile, web and branch channels. We hope that you join us as we continue to enhance this marvelous solution.
