The digital card services solution creates an end-to-end customer journey -from product presentment, selection, digital acquisition to instant issuance and secure payments.
Conversational platforms are becoming the new digital banking user interface. As consumers spend more time on messaging apps, IoT devices and social media, they require similar solutions from their financial institutions.
INVEX solution is built on Ondot’s mobile card services conversational platform and creates a two-way 100% digital interaction between the bank and its customers. This interaction is real-time, the customer is able to navigate, select, apply for a new credit card product, get approved instantly, use card for online purchases immediately and manage (controls and alerts) the new digital card -all from their mobile.
“To achieve digital mastery, banks need to invest in digital capabilities that reflect the entire customer life cycle and support customers across touchpoints”, wrote Aurelie L’Hostis, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research1. “The age of the customer demands that you align your digital capabilities with the customer life cycle. [Banks] should plan for cross-touchpoint behavior by designing processes that make it easy for customers to switch between touchpoints.”
