Remote Notarization Delivers Branch Transformation

It's no surprise that bank branches have had to make adjustments due to constantly changing circumstances. Whether that be because of COVID-19 closures, labor shortages or changing consumer expectations, banks have had to look for other solutions to allow their services to be done virtually whether online or at an ITM.

Video banking aims to restore personal touch for banking

Financial technology vendors have attempted to tackle this issue through a variety of solutions ranging from better mobile apps to more advanced ATMs. However, bank branches still want to be able to maintain a "human touch" to the experience even with this technology. A recent partnership between Popio Mobile Video Cloud and Jaguar Software is aiming to address this issue. Popio is integrating its video banking solution with Jaguar Software's digital processing and deposit services to deliver a full-service video banking experience.

Is self-service always the solution?

I believe the best way to execute complex banking services and transactions is with the help of a dedicated professional. I imagine most people would find that statement agreeable. It seems obvious that people would need help selecting and opening accounts or applying for new loans. But with the implementation of digital self-service platforms, I’m surprised at how often that principle is compromised. When a self-service platform is the only digital channel through which users can open an account at a financial institution, they can be made to feel the institution is telling them to “visit a branch or go it alone.”

Online Banking Explosion Calls for CU Leaders to Re-envision the Branch

While we were hopeful that members would comply, the shift to online banking was dramatic, with 50,000 more online transactions in April than in March – a 38% increase. April was another record month due to the stimulus payments, and the online trend is sure to increase as members adopt the newer technology, including a new mobile application we introduced in July to further facilitate online transactions. While we have a six-branch network and serve the entire state of Michigan, we consider this new mobile app another branch, with a mobile video teller platform allowing members to connect anywhere and anytime for safe, secure banking. Its initial use – 46 video sessions with members in the first four days of the platform launch – far exceeded our expectations.
