Don’t Forget About Customer Communications Management During Your Banking Core Upgrade

by | Jul 20, 2023

Maximize the benefits of your banking core upgrade by prioritizing a customer communications management integration

Digital Banking

Outdated banking technology can make it difficult for banks to offer the seamless, convenient, omnichannel banking experience their customers expect. This, in turn, makes a banking core conversion a C-level priority and potential outcome at most banks, sooner or later.

With new core technology, deeper insights on customer relationships can be uncovered, leading to fresh opportunities to increase share of wallet. Common business processes can be automated as well, leading to improved efficiency and a better experience for customers and staff members alike. But to take full advantage of these new capabilities, the systems which connect to your banking core must also be up to date.

That’s why, to get the best results from a core conversion project, bank leaders should consider making their core conversion part of a broader digital transformation which includes optimizing the regulated customer communications and other data-driven customer experiences that are derived from the core.

A vendor review can be integral to the success of your banking core conversion

McKinsey & Company suggests that the cost of re-integrating systems at a medium-sized bank after a core change can exceed $50 million depending on complexity. Conducting a vendor review before finalizing the new architecture can help mitigate these costs and ensure that your bank is future-ready. When evaluating a vendor that provides Customer Communications Management (CCM) solutions, for example, you might start by asking your team the following:
  • Are you happy with your current CCM vendor’s service and ability to meet SLAs?
  • Are they client focused and responsive to change requests?
  • Do they have a strong vision for the future of customer communications like client statements?
  • Does their technology roadmap support the communication channels your customers want and expect?
  • Are they making the right investments to reduce your costs, modernize engagement, and guide you into the future?
  • Are your customer communications integrated into your organization’s overall customer experience strategy?
If your vendor partner, or their technology, doesn’t meet your communications needs, then perhaps it is time to consider working with a new solution as your bank implements its new core.
