We have always been at the forefront of developments, leading our customers in deploying new solutions. For example, delivering banking services to customers has come a long way since those clients had to queue in a branch to obtain service. Telephone banking was a great step forward, allowing customers to carry out many transactions with a simple phone call but it still meant adhering to call centre opening hours. For the banks, significant investment was still required in running these call centres. Internet banking solved these issues. Now online banking customers can simply log on to their web banking site at home and carry out the full range of banking activities whenever they wish. This service delivery model was also a leap forward for banks who now needed less investment in branches and call centres to deliver services.
