What does it mean to be an innovator in today’s global banking industry? It’s no longer just about digital but more about connecting customers with their banks in a seamless, omnichannel fashion in order to solve specific problems and issues, according to judges in the BAI-Finacle Global Banking Innovation Awards 2014.
