Technology Implementation & Adoption

Achieve the potentials of technology adoption and use

As the financial services industry continues to transform at unprecedented velocity, enterprises grow more dependent upon digital technologies to compete in today’s hyper-competitive conditions. Yet, without a coherent technology adoption strategy, the implementation of ERP systems, workforce management applications, mobile technology, and cloud-based solutions can cause more problems than they solve.

Some aspects of the modern business environment present more challenges than the adoption of technology. These include:

  • Lack of clear or integrated technology goals
  • Steep learning curves for IT personnel and technology end users
  • The high cost of hardware, software, security, and training
  • Lengthy implementation processes that delay critical learning
  • Selection of the wrong technology for the problem
  • Poor integration between technologies that need to work together
  • Ability to keep pace with obsolescent and emerging technologies
  • Insufficient support from technology vendors

When technology implementation and adoption go well, they can produce significant cost reductions, improved productivity, a more engaged workforce, superior business results, and a healthy return on investment for your technology spend.

The question is, How do you get from point A – constantly struggling to make the technology work – to point B – the seamless implementation and adoption of technology in all areas of the business?

In consumer retail banking, today’s customers have expanding yet diverging service expectations. Some want primarily digital/virtual experiences, some continue to prioritize in-person relationships, others desire hybrid “some of both” interactions, and all want hyper-personalization. Distribution channels are not being switched as much as they’re being added; customers want more of everything. At the same time, some banks are streamlining internal operations and seeking outsourcing solutions, while others are trimming back third-party resources. All of these diverse strategic and technology transformations are driving complex workforce training/retraining and skill development initiatives.

In insurance and risk management, the automation of quoting, underwriting, document management, and the full range of service issues and claims processing and administration has created fundamental reimagining of the role of the workforce in serving customers. Contactless and virtual sales, service, and support are driving widespread transformation of what systems will get the work done, and which and what type of people will use those systems to do that work.
