Secure and Seamless Banking Operations with Digital Payment Solutions

Banking CIO Outlook | Monday, August 19, 2019


Digital payment solutions are redesigning the standard payment services model to relieve cumbersome transaction techniques, whether they pay in-store, online, or via a mobile device.  

FREMONT, CA: Historically, most payments have been made by money or checks; however, things have altered now with digitalization. Payment sector has developed from physical transactions to digital wallets. These necessary modifications lead to rapid, almost daily, the launch of new payment systems and instruments. New age payment procedures, such as mobile payments, not only change the way customers spend but also change the way payments are accepted, secured, and facilitated. E-commerce's emergence brought to the forefront of a variety of new payment capacities and financial services. To meet an unprecedented increase in demand for increased user-friendly payment experiences, today's banks have become the most proactive adopters of these exciting function-wide innovations. A new class of non-bank payment suppliers has also emerged in the midst of this wave of payment space developments, varying from known players in the non-payment sector to new-age fintech startups. They collaborate with banks and lead the cost of bringing the payment idea to a whole new level by continuously innovating speed, and accessibility across distinct channels, comfort, and effectiveness.

Leveraging Data and Technology

While technological advances have revolutionized the banking space in terms of biometric security through unique identifiers such as fingerprints, facial recognition, and voice recognition, one of the most critical interventions for the banking industry is the advent of big data. It is possible to uncover earlier untapped patterns and trends for new client ideas through efficient storage, analysis, and interpretation of vast and complicated information sets. While ensuring privacy, this can lead to important business advantages. Also, data management can make payments and banking more effective and tailored for each customer, helping the sector partners streamline their internal procedures and add value through data-based industry knowledge.

Trends Influencing Finance and Payment

This sector's change cannot be attributed solely to the new technological capacities, but also the ways and extent to which such advances are being exploited. The emerging markets have been discerned in the globalized globe with the ability to go beyond their advanced counterparts where data transfer is instantaneous, and adoption and effect is more robust and widespread than ever before. In reality, the breakneck adoption rate is a massive driver of change in itself, with innovations attaining mass-market penetration at a much quicker pace than ever believed feasible.

The Bank-Fintech Partnership

Partnerships with Bank-Fintech have proven to be an efficient way to achieve the first mile of high-end fintech and adopt the constantly innovative digital environment. This provides the table with both chances and difficulties. Increasingly, digital innovations have placed banks at the very heart of the payment space reshaping the industry. This age allows revisiting the standardizations by opening the jar of cookies and enabling new experiments to adapt to new usage instances and helping them to scale through standardization again. This will lead a way to generate new concepts that can be applied realistically to the payment space, supplemented by increased speed of design and development by fintech startups and banks' knowledge of the specifics and pragmatism of functioning payment systems.

Today, the industry is looking to use recent technology to secure its place in a rapidly changing industry. With technology holding potential and consumers, as well as banking leaders, being enthusiastic about the sector's digital transformation, we can certainly expect further change. Technology will help the banking industry and those who interact with it to make a better future.
