Intelligent Automation for Banking and Financial Services


What is intelligent automation, and why do banks need it 

Intelligent automation (IA) combines artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP), and process automation to optimize complete business outcomes. The banking and financial services sectors use intelligent automation to reduce costs and time when delivering products and services to customers or internal stakeholders. Banks automate customer service, back-office, loan origination, credit decisioning, and many more processes that span multiple teams and applications.  

AI-led tools "Focus more on context and adapting to people and less on task and process flows...[and] AI-led process improvement will take a people-first approach. Context will drive required actions within a single UI experience centered around the customer or employee journey.” - Forrester

Intelligent automation offers tangible benefits 

Automation in the banking and financial services sectors offers several benefits for banks and their customers. Banks can free up staff to focus on more strategic and customer-facing activities by automating or removing repetitive and redundant tasks. Automating business outcomes with IA rather than automating mundane tasks improves the customer experience, increases operational efficiency, and provides a path to utilizing AI in many areas.  


How does AI play into all of this 

The banking industry is under pressure as consumers shift their spending to tap into new technological frontiers. Banks are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to provide more personalized experiences, drive customer engagement, and reduce delivery costs. AI can help banks detect fraudulent activity, provide recommendations on products and services, and optimize back-office processes. By operationalizing and harnessing the power of AI, banks can remain competitive in the digital age.
