Why Should Banks Invest in Digital Signage?
Blog written by Jasdeep Kohli
To effectively reach tech-savvy customers and distinguish themselves, banks all around the world are augmenting their use of digital signage for in-branch branding, customer and branch services promotions, reducing perceived waiting times, and uplifting ambiance. In fact, research shows that 60% of banks use digital signage for customer communication.
In this article, we’ll discuss how banks can adopt digital signage to reposition themselves to stand out in terms of the products they offer, and the customer experiences they deliver.
In today’s digitized era, tech-savvy customers walking into a local branch expect their bank to be at least as sophisticated as they are themselves. Bank digital signage — from street-facing displays to touch screen kiosks, counter displays and mobile — offers dynamic content and has been proven to capture customers’ attention and increase their recall of information, branding and services promoted.
While waiting in a queue at a branch, customers tend to get impatient and usually perceive their waiting time to be greater than their actual waiting time. Digital screens can portray information regarding banking products, real-time queuing, entertainment, real-time news and weather feeds to help entertain customers and reduce perceived waiting times.
With its ability to display dynamic interactive content, bank digital signage can be capitalised to promote banking products and services to a captive audience. Sensor and artificial intelligence technologies help banks to tailor specific messages according to audience personas.
A centrally controlled content management system allows content on multiple screens across branches to be updated with ease. Instead of starting email threads, or updating information on rarely visited portals, corporate messages can be shared with all the branches simultaneously using digital signage to train employees, impart product knowledge, and provide important updates.
Interactive touch screen self-service kiosks increase efficiency and reduce staff costs by enabling customers to perform basic routine transactions easily. These kiosks can feature information in different languages to better cater to the local communities.
In-branch data such as footfall, dwell times and pathing can be harnessed to understand customer behavior — bridging mobile, place-based media and a 360 degree customer view. With this deep customer insight, banks can map each aspect of the customer experience, streamlining digital signage and content optimization strategy and triggering smart messaging and relevant content on visual display and mobile.
Bank branches are the forecourt of modern banking. Digital signage brings many benefits to help banks transform the in-branch experience and deliver exceptional customer service.
