Building The Digital-First Branch of The Future

Besides digital, one of the hottest topics of the year is branch transformation. While the last 20 months have forced banks to invest more in digital-first customer engagement capabilities, branches are reopening and inching closer to near pre-pandemic levels. Consumers indicate they prefer to talk to a human for more complex banking activities and that may push some consumers back to the branch. But many consumers still plan to use digital banking for many banking activities post-pandemic. All of this is accelerating the need to inject human help into the digital channels. While many FIs were on a path to explore how to transform the role of the branch, the need to provide access to human help in a digital-first environment creates a bigger need to transform the role of the branch. What does this mean for branches and how should banks plan their customer engagement technology investments?
