Everybody’s talking about Millennials. Ask any marketing professional, and you’ll be told Millennials are the target audience.Pick up a B2B magazine, and there they are. And in the banking industry, where the average customer’s age is about 50, discussions center on how vital these 18-34 year olds are to your institution’s long-term survival.

It’s been said that the only sure bets are death and taxes. But there’s another fact of life for that list: Change. Life is dynamic – both challenging and delightful.

With a more technology savvy customer base comes certain expectations about your financial institutions online offerings. If there is a transaction that could be made easier with the Internet, your customer will most likely resent your bank or credit union if they have to preform an outdated task (needing to use a fax machine, for example).  Something as simple as giving you a document should not be seen as a challenge in the eyes of you customer.

The problem financial institutions face can be summed up in one word: security. If the document contains sensitive information, your team must take the proper […]

Flashback to the Wild West, when thieves on horses would go to incredible feats to steal whatever the bank was transferring in their strongbox. You’ve seen it in the movies and it truly happened decades ago when that was the only means of transferring money.
