Buyer’s Guide

Introduction to Buyer’s Guide for Banking Software

The unprecedented forces of change in the competitive landscape of the banking sector, stringent regulations, dynamic financial arena, and fast-changing customer needs have compelled banks to transform existing processes, operational models, and even the age-old banking IT solutions. Increased adoption of online payments, online portfolio management, and penetration of online technology in core banking services have powered customers to engage more closely with their banks and also enabled banks to deliver personalized customer experience and faster delivery of products and services. 

The banking industry has integrated and adopted technology to retain customers and stay competitive in the financial world. However, the technological curve demands banks to constantly upgrade their systems and find pinpointed solutions for their specific needs. Before investing heavily in any software solution, banks must get themselves aware of all features and functionalities that constitute a banking software system. With several banking solutions luring the clients with promising banking operations and tasks, making a decision to buy the most suitable and cost-efficient candidate is a herculean task. This buyer's guide, therefore, aims to assist you in selecting a trustworthy banking software solution. We have discussed in detail all essential aspects that are of paramount importance when it comes to making a buying decision of banking software. 

What is Modern Banking? How has banking changed over time?

Traditional banks never lived in an era of cloud computing, artificial intelligence, encrypted technologies, and Banks have witnessed the migration from the old IT architecture to the new cloud-dominated services provided by giants such as Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Oracle, and more. Traditional banks never heard of cyber attacks, data theft, privacy issues, automated operations, personalized banking, etc. Today, banks have migrated their legacy systems to rope in the latest digital banking solutions that reengineer and reverse reengineer all banking products and services to achieve sustainable business growth for banks. The latest concepts such as 'anytime, anywhere banking has contributed greatly to technological innovations to open up new platforms for bank account holders to carry online transactions, card payments, and mobile payments. Traditional banking was business-centric. Modern banking is customer-centric. For saving costs, usage-based billing advantage, adoption of Green IT, and business agility banks have entered the technology arena for meeting the needs of the modern business environment. 

What are the key challenges faced by the modern banking system?

The challenges due to disruptive technologies, radical competition from FinTech firms, ever-changing regulation, and repo rates, compliance pressures, privacy concerns, liquidity issues, increasing customer expectations have intensified in the current times. The costs associated with compliance are very high.  

The greatest threat is from constant cyber-attacks. The International Monetary Fund noted that the potential loss due to cyber-attacks in severe scenarios could be as high as $270 billion to $350 billion annually. Such security breaches take a toll on the overall profitability of banks.

With an increasing number of private banks, the entry of new Fintech players, and multiple options available in the banking area, clients expect a personalized experience. Client loyalty and retention is rapidly becoming outdated idea. Banks have to detect and fight scams and fraudulent transactions. The increase in non-performing assets, wilful defaulters, and bad loans due to poor credit risk assessment is also a major challenge that banks need to mitigate. 

Technological assistance and constant innovation can help banks to fight all these challenges. Banks know that digital transformation is the critical differentiator that can help them to overcome all banking challenges. Banking software is the first step they can take in the path of sustainable development. 

What is Banking Software?

Desktop-based/On-Premise 

These types of banking system software are licensed, and banks can install them within their IT infrastructure. On-Premise banking management systems are highly customizable in nature.  Banking organizations seeking banking software solutions for optimum results and who prefer keeping their data on their own servers can opt for desktop-based banking systems. 

Web-based

These types of online banking platforms are hosted, and third-party digital banking solution providers offer these tools. Web-based online banking platforms are very popular as apart from the bank admins, customers, bank agents, and employees can also access these software solutions from anywhere with a  login ID and the password provided by banks. 

Cloud-based

These types of banking management software are hosted through third-party cloud service providers such as Amazon web service, Microsoft Azure, etc. These are popular with large banking organizations that require massive data storage capacity and extreme flexibility. The cloud-based banking software solution is a SaaS (Software as a Service) that allows banks and their customers to access the services using internet-enabled devices. 

Open Source

These types of core banking software allow users to customize source code, modify inbuilt settings, and add extra plugins to enhance the capabilities, functionalities, and utility of the software. When banking organizations need to accommodate specific features in their banking software solutions that are unavailable with any vendor, then open source banking software can opt. 

Why do you need Banking Software, and what will happen without it?

For ease of transactions

Banking software has made the lives of both bankers and customers easy. Banking software allows bank account holders to access banking services, in real-time. Implementing it means easing the transactional activity.

For 24/7 functionality

Without software, banks cannot provide 24/7 functionality and around-the-clock service.

Increasing account holder's trust: 

When service requests, queries, fund transfer processing are in real-time, and loan sanctions are through a high-speed digitally automated process, the account holders are more likely to trust the banking organization.  

Ensuring regulatory compliance:

The financial ministry of every nation and regulatory body frequently asks the banks to submit various financial documents and reports related to their transactions, customer bank account details, and related liquidity information. Mostly such requests are on an urgent basis. For example, if the finance ministry wants the banks to submit the details of all account holders having more than a million dollars in their current or saving accounts, then banks having banking software need not take any stress. They will just have to filter, segregate, and download the information with a few clicks, and information will be available in any format (PDF, CSV, Excel) they need.

To Safeguard valuable data: 

Banks have records of account holders' personal details, financial assets data, copies of various identity proofs, and tax information that can be misused by fraudulent imposters or scammers if leaked. The two-factor authentication and password-protected layered security of banking software provide a shield to banks for safeguarding their valuable data and honoring their customer's privacy.

For Ensuring High-security

Stringent adherence to high-end security features is a foremost criterion for banking software. Double-factor authentication, multiple-layer of security, and encrypted networks make transactions secure and hacking-proof. 

Management of corporate treasury

Since the 2008 financial crisis, a lot of changes have been made in the corporate treasury part of the banking business. Greater transparency to protect account holders' money is a fundamental aspect of banking laws. Banking software is essential to access financial market data and assess risky investments for corporate and institutional investors. 

Improved bank workflow

With automated financial service solutions, progressive banks can improve their workflow and automate complex processes. With an automated classification of documents, extraction tools, advanced search features, and validating processes, banks can enjoy a faster and error-free workflow. 

Centralized Banking 

With every data, quantifiable information, and business process available to all employees of a bank, a uniform approach can be maintained across all branches. In decentralized banking processes, managers can provide loans considering the soft data such as the customer's relationship with the manager, but it can be very risky. A banking software centralizes everything so that managers can adopt a quantifiable approach to credit assessment before sanctioning any loans.

Bank Treasury

Banking software keeps a record of all the capital that the bank's treasury possesses in real-time. It helps to control and manage the bank's money efficiently for daily operations. 

Trading

Today banks are involved in large-scale transactions of gold, stocks, bonds, and debt instruments for trading purposes. A banking system can be used to set algorithms to help banks in buying and selling profitably. 

Friction-free back-office operations

With robust automation features of banking software, the back-office staff can work efficiently without hassle. It has a module to handle and automate back-office operations such as clearance of cheques, drafts, customer applications, etc. 

Without banking software, banks would not be in a position to analyze the data of their customers to come up with meaningful conclusions. It would be difficult to manage the mammoth work manually. Banks won’t be able to efficiently tackle regulatory changes, operational requirements, and customers’ demands. Without a robust banking system, mapping customer demographics to come up with new products, or meet dynamic business demands is not feasible. 

What are the most common functions handled by Banking Software Solutions?

A banking software solution is capable of handling the following functions:

  • Core banking
  • ATM
  • Internet Banking
  • Mobile Banking
  • Payments network
  • SMS Based banking
  • Card management system 
  • Trading services by Investment banks (Capital markets)

What are the benefits of banking software?

Customer satisfaction and robust customer experience

One foremost benefit of the banking software is that you equip all your bank employees with the necessary information to deal with clients' issues. For instance, a customer who has called the bank to enquire about a deducted charge from his savings account abruptly asks a random question for his loan information too. His call is not transferred to the loan department; rather, the bank official solves the query. You can imagine how satisfied the customer would be to know that the bank knows his profile thoroughly. A single database available to all employees and Omnichannel banking solutions using the banking software can work wonders for your banking business.  

Increasing productivity

Bank managers can automate tasks related to everyday core banking operations, service request proceedings, sending marketing emails to the customers, and enabling self-service portals for clients. When banks can complete a lot of tasks without the customers having to either contact the bank or visit the branch, it increases the productivity of the bank and saves time and employee cost. 

Reduced need for workforce

Banking software reduces the need for the human resource required at individual branches to run its operations. 

Multi-branch activities from one point

Banking software brings all branches of the bank on a single interactive platform. All core banking services can be monitored and controlled from a single dashboard. 

Banks get assistance in all core operations of the banks, such as:

  • Everyday banking transactions
  • ATM transactions
  • Internet Banking
  • Fund transfers
  • Account opening and closing
  • Mobile Banking
  • Payments network
  • SMS Based banking
  • Card management system 
  • Multi-currency transactions
  • Customer service requests

Which factors you should keep in mind before selecting a suitable banking software

Finding a banking solution that provides value for money, customized, hassle-free, and comprehensive services will surely make a difference in your banking business. The type of banking software solution can vary from bank to bank based on your requirements. There are, however, a number of essential factors to keep in mind before investing in the right banking software solution. Hence, before you select a particular banking system, make sure that the banking platform you have chosen is capable of answering all below questions in an affirmative:

  • Can you customize the software or request to add more functions over time?
  • Is the banking software user-friendly for your account holders and employees? 
  • Does the software deploy a robust encryption system for all transactions and communications? 
  • Can it work with low bandwidth internet connectivity?
  • Is your banking software vendor well-experienced in the banking solutions area?
  • Is the Return on Investment (ROI) greater than the overall expenditure on the software?
  • Does the vendor provide a free trial/free demo of its services?
  • Are you going to get free customer support services from the banking software provider?
  • Is the software deployable in multiple types of devices?

If the answer is yes to above all questions, then surely you are considering buying an industry-grade professional software service. 

Why is data privacy the biggest concern for modern banks? How can banking software help?

Data privacy is a growing concern for all banking institutions around the world. Even when customers have become savvier in the use of technology, hackers and cybercriminals find new ways to exploit the sensitive customer data for fraudulent acts. With stringent government and regulatory measures, banks have to gear up to meet the privacy standards demanded by customers and regulators. 

Data breaches exposed 4.1 billion records in the first six months of 2019.

It is the professional responsibility of banks to make their customers feel safe and secure about their hard-earned money. Failing in this part can have devastating consequences on banks' business. Banks having a high regard for account holder's data privacy are the first choice of investors to park their money. Banking software has features and necessary applications to provide banks with a rigorous security system to protect all types of sensitive data. Banking software solutions follow the global guidelines for data protection such as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) of the European Union and  Payment Service Directives, which forbids financial institutions to collect and reserve any personal data without explicit customer consent.

What modern banking trends you should be aware of before initiating a purchase of banking Software?

IoT

In IoT-enabled banking, millions of devices are connected to each other through an intelligent system sharing data on cloud servers. Banks collect data from the devices that customers are using for availing banking services, and based on the data collected; banks offer personalized services to customers. IoT enables banks to collect data from credit card/debit cards (IoT enabled POS transactions), ATMs, mobile devices, laptops, etc. Banking software can help in analyzing the IoT data into valuable insights. For example, banks can reduce the number of unused ATMs based on the data, based on card transactions, and find locations to install more POS at particular places. 

Artificial intelligence

Conversational AI is used for chatting with customers, cognitive AI for customer services, AI-powered AML (anti-money laundering) for fraud detection, and face-recognition AI for security purposes. Banks are also utilizing AI for credit assessment, risk management, and understanding behavioral finance. The banking software has AI-enabled features that reduce cost, detect suspicious transactions, and increase ROI.

BlockChain

Blockchain's distributed ledger provides a tamper-proof data structure to banks. Blockchain technology increases transparency, reduces theft, and fraud occurrence. Blockchain is an immutable transaction record that notes the ownership of every asset in the blockchain. This record is almost impossible to hack. It is a revolutionary technology that provides a highly secure way of payment that removes the need for middlemen and creates a ledger that is not monitored or controlled by any single entity. 

Wearable Gadgets

The adoption of new digital devices has driven enormous changes in retail financial services. The retail banking sector has been enormously transformed by digital devices. It helps banks in better understanding the customers.  Wearable devices can authenticate customer identity without the need for a password. This mitigates the issues related to password theft or forgotten password issues. Wearable devices like watches can identify their owner by the size of wrist veins, voice analysis, heartbeat, etc. Even if someone steals it, the watch can identify that its owner has taken it off.  Wearable devices can help banks to project the interest growth chart on a wall through smart glasses. 

Data analytics

Data analytics and machine learning algorithms can help banks to predict significant customer actions. It reduces customer churn rate, improves margins, increases customers' likelihood to buy particular bank products, etc. Data analytics assist banks in scaling up the business and taking strategic calls on business. Data analytics is essential to predict and understand the high potential customers, increase or decrease in profitability with changes in regulations, identify high-value prospects, risk propositions, and product profitability.

Personalized banking

For every $100 billion in assets that a bank has, it can achieve as much as $300 million in revenue growth by personalizing its customer interactions. By analyzing customer spending behavior and transaction patterns, banks can come up with personalized solutions for the banks. Banks expose customers to personalization in marketing emails and other digital content about their products. Customers feel special and respond better to further marketing calls. 

Payment Banks and Payment Wallets

Even with the current restrictions regarding the number of deposits, loans, credit cards, and other core banking products that payments banks cannot offer, Payment banks and wallets have created a significant market share in the banking sector. Payment banks increase financial penetration and inclusion in areas where banks are unable to do. Mobile payment wallets have already shown a large-scale acceptance in the world. Going with paperless transactions that are recorded at both ends has become a norm.

Emergence of Fintech

Successful banks are agile. They know how to build a healthy financial ecosystem. Fintech has disrupted the banking industry, but it also provides banks an opportunity to render advanced customer services.  Fintech can offer financial services to participants who don't even have bank accounts. This type of financial inclusion makes Fintech a lucrative business. Banks are now developing Fintech models and architecture to reap benefits in the long term. A collaborative approach of Banks and Fintech firms to drive innovation through a hybrid financial institute is the future of banking. Successful banks are agile. They know how to build a healthy financial ecosystem with the help of online banking software.

Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrencies have a significant impact on the banking industry, owing to the former's exciting features. The banking and the currency system are bound to get a new dimension due to the revolutionary bitcoin technology. Bitcoin and blockchain thrive on decentralization, and banks will follow suit.  Once banks and regulatory bodies accept cryptocurrencies as an integral part of the current financial system, the decentralized system will bring more transparency and security to the banking system. Online banking software can help to regulate cryptocurrency transactions for banks.

Cloud computing

Cloud computing offers banks the advantages of pay-as-you-go services by breaking the expenses on the storage of huge data into an ongoing operational cost. Banks need not invest a large up-front amount for new hardware and software for storing data over internet servers. Banks can also focus more on customer services and core business as the liabilities to protect and manage data on cloud servers, back up, and storing data lies with the cloud computing service of online banking software. 

Agile Technology

Agility is now a core pillar of financial institutions that lets them provide efficient responses to the changing needs of customers. Banks are also going for mergers and acquisitions of Fintech companies to move the non-critical services to these IT companies so that banks can focus on banking and less on IT needs. The current customer culture requires banks to focus on speed rather than size, and the need for shorter new product development cycles is more than ever today. Technologies such as cloud computing, API (Application programming interface), and AI have allowed banks to change their back-end operations without the risk of halting business operations for technological upgrades.
