Digital drive for banks
With an upsurge in mobile-powered innovations, banks are now hyper personalizing their customer interactions. Banks can deliver it through the digital platform. They are using analytics to offer relevant products. A pre-approved loan is a noteworthy example.
Banks can also access customer information through social media handles. They can see a customer’s vacation plans.

Banks can also decipher the channel their customers access the most. It helps in transferring the loan amount in the account within 10-20 seconds of applying for it.
