Identifying potential acquisition targets to expand retail banking portfolio with artificial intelligence technologies
Strategy & Operations
Our Client, a financial institution with front-office banking operations, recognised that they were losing customers. Some had gone to familiar competitors in the banking sector that had recently implemented digital banking solutions. Others customers had signed up with large technology companies that also offered retail banking services. The Client recognised that Artificial Intelligence-based applications played a significant role in the value that each type of competitor was providing to their former customers.
New AI-based applications included the use of machine learning for virtual assistants, big data analytics for budgeting tools, and biometrics for enhanced account security, and computer vision for robotic assistants. The Client knew that they needed to quickly develop a strategy to provide similar offerings, but did not have the necessary experience in their organisation to guide their research and development work on this issue.
They asked CamIn for our expert advice on evaluating the current technological landscape for AI applications in front-office banking. They also sought our guidance in evaluating solutions were most relevant for their operations, and for our insights on how they could differentiate themselves from their competitors with new technology.
