No small talk: Why conversational AI is propelling bank channels

Banking expectations among consumers are changing—quickly. Siloed multichannel experiences, once perceived as powerful and innovative, have given way to deeply personalized omnichannel options. In retail, that happened some time ago as consumers moved from either-in-person-or-online shopping to another model: viewing merchandise in stores and purchasing (or returning) it online and vice versa. Moreover that applies today no Read More

Why high tech and human touch should go hand in glove

Here’s to the artificial intelligence-driven bots that comb troves of consumer data, analyze the information and then reliably predict what a customer needs. But that’s only half the story.
