The need to produce a frictionless and awe-inspiring experience is intense in every industry, and banking is no different.

Digitally empowered clients have high expectations, adding pressure to the banking industry—which is already facing stringent compliance regulations. With growing market competition, banks and credit unions are searching for multi-pronged transformation initiatives to optimize their retail spaces.

Strategies such as the universal associate model and size-optimizing branch networks with micro branches have become hot topics with FIs that want to remain agile and competitive by reducing friction in the client experience. But executives struggle to align their retail strategy with the technology because of all the variables getting in the way of a frictionless service experience.

“The fusion of strategy, design, build, technology, integration, and delivery is what makes a truly innovative, successful initiative and what drives our company,” said Nathan Moore, CTO of CFM. “We are focusing on all aspects of the branch experience to drive lasting transformation and relevancy.”
