Pete Champion chaired the World Branch Transformation conference in Barcelona and discussed I-AM’s insight for re-inventing the branch. The retail branch remains the most lucrative channel for banks, however, we still see a significant percentage of branches that are designed primarily to offer a heavily transactional experience. Today’s rapidly evolving customer base are as digitally driven as they are experience driven. Customers expect more, and your branches can do more.
I-AM took part in this year’s Efma workshops for the ‘Learning Expedition’ event, hosted at StudioB in Kensington. Partnering with David Judic from CYBG and Jon Blakeney from I-AM, we presented our approach on working together to create the BWorks concept ‘Learn. Work. Bank’. We shared our insight on how we developed the B Works branch in Manchester, from the branding to the customer journey and the experience design.
Taking steps to make traditional banking processes more user-friendly and efficient, Natwest has become the first UK high street bank to allow customers to open an account with just photo ID and a selfie. The move streamlines the normally time-consuming process by removing the requirement to visit a branch and wait for verification.
