At the same time, it empowers banks to deliver new digital products and services by applying modern technologies to create new sources of revenue and new operating models."
Bob Meara, Senior Analyst, Celent: "The digital bar has been raised in two important ways. First, digital is no longer simply about facilitating convenient, low-friction self-service transactions, it is also about customer engagement across the entire customer lifecycle. Secondly, digital is no longer simply a self-service platform; it is quickly becoming an omnichannel system of enablement and engagement across all customer touchpoints - including in-person channels. The Finacle Digital Engagement Suite appears well-positioned for this new era in banking."
