Payments modernization represents a significant shift in the way banks and financial institutions handle transactions, moving from traditional, often manual processes to more streamlined, digital, and automated systems. This is not just a matter of keeping up with technological advancements; it is a strategic imperative for banks and financial institutions aiming to stay relevant, competitive, and compliant in the rapidly evolving financial landscape.

This shift is crucial for four main reasons:

  • Enhanced Customer Experience: Modern payment systems meet customer expectations for fast, reliable, and convenient transactions, helping to improve satisfaction and loyalty in the digital banking era.
  • Increased Efficiency and Reduced Costs: Automating payment processes reduces manual effort, speeds up transactions, minimizes errors, and lowers costs for financial institutions, resulting in substantial savings over time.
  • Competitive Advantage: Institutions embracing payments modernization differentiate themselves by offering innovative, efficient, and secure banking options, attracting and retaining customers, especially younger ones who prefer digital-first experiences.
  • Enabling New Business Models and Services: A modern payment infrastructure empowers banks and financial institutions to innovate and create new financial products and services, such as real-time payments and blockchain-based transactions. This enables institutions to stay ahead of technological trends and meet emerging customer needs.

Join Lane Martin, PwC Head of Payments Principal, Tanvi Patel, Digital Payments Principal, and Aloke Agarwal, Director at PwC and Industry Cloud Product Owner to learn how PwC collaborated with leading payment vendors and created tools that can address your needs while enhancing your customers’ experience.

According to a recent IDC study, the adoption of industry clouds is spiking fast. Their rapid growth is fueled by their ability to combat business volatility and shorten the path to value for cloud transformation initiatives. With the usage of industry clouds more than doubling from 2021 to 2023, benchmarks of successful transformation are starting to emerge across industries. (1)

Join guest speaker Nadia Ballard, Research Manager, Industry Clouds, Solutions and Verticalization Strategies at IDC and Sumit Abilius, Consulting Solutions Director, Cloud and Digital at PwC to learn more about the three emerging indicators of a successful industry cloud transformation, including:

  • The preparation needed to address the challenges brought on by industry cloud, such as difficult implementation and integration
  • The importance of partnerships and the capabilities and components they can provide to generate value for the end user
  • How strong ecosystems and individuals within these ecosystems, contribute to the breadth of business outcomes that can be achieved

The benefits of industry cloud are clear: built-in regulatory compliance and access to the latest technology tools, to name a few. But achieving value and better customer journeys requires the right preparation, ecosystems and partners to support your cloud transformation. In this webcast, we’ll examine what makes an industry cloud successful and take a look at how PwC is helping its clients focus on their customer journeys, not the underlying tech.
