There’s little debate any longer surrounding the importance of the branch channel and the imperative for its transformation. But, there’s much debate – even controversy – around how to affect this transformation. This panel discussion will feature three banks advocating different approaches to transforming the branch from expensive transaction hubs to lean sales and service centers.
In this interactive panel discussion, attendees will:
Understand how banks are approaching branch transformation and what have emerged as common elements in new branch efforts
Hear, in detail, how three different banks are equipping and staffing their new branch designs
Get diverse views on controversial aspects to new branch designs, such as: use of video conferencing, the role of the teller and in-branch self-service.
