Consumers are gonna consume (whatever, whenever and however they want), challengers are gonna challenge, and banks, most of them anyway, are in for a rude awakening if they don’t innovate their way back to power – and relevance.

The coronavirus pandemic and high customer expectations have forced banks to innovate. One by one, they have been introducing new online banking services or at least improving existing ones. But it has not always been a change for the better. "The development of software usually takes many months or years, and the investments are in the tens of millions of crowns. When problems arise during implementation, the bank finds itself in a tight spot," says Čeněk Navrátil of BSC, which is responding to this situation by introducing its own digital banking solution delivered in the form of Retail Bank³. Retail Bank³ is a unique approach that allows banks to try out mobile and web applications and quickly deploy them into the banking environment in only three steps.
New entity, Finshape, secures VC funding by PortfoLion.
Czech-based Banking Software Company (BSC) and Hungarian W.UP announced today that after receiving all regulatory approvals they have successfully completed their merger, forming Finshape. The new entity is the first digital banking solution provider combining low-code platform development expertise with data-driven personalization to catalyze the digital transformation of banks in the post-pandemic economy. Backed by PortfoLion Capital Partners, one of CEE’s leading venture capital and private equity firms, Finshape is the first step in a series of expansions planned across Europe, the APAC, and MENA regions.
The rapid shift to working from home, forced by circumstances over the past year, has shown that in many fields it is possible to not only work and communicate efficiently with colleagues remotely, but also to serve clients completely electronically. For many firms, this change marked the completion of the digital transformation of their business, while for many others it may only be their first step towards digitisation. The situation for banks was a bit different. Bank clients had routinely used various digital channels before, but last year meant a virtually complete cut off of personal contact with their bankers.
Last year clearly showed which sectors can benefit from digital transformation, and which have only hastily and impulsively begun to transfer their off-line service offers to the online world. Industries such as e-commerce and e-learning have, of course, succeeded perfectly, and banks, which can handle most of their customers' normal requirements without face-to-face visits haven’t done too badly either. But by using the e-commerce example banks can learn that opportunities in the online world have certainly not been exhausted, and if they want to maintain relevance and profitability, they have a lot to do this year – whether it be better personalization of digital services, opening up to third-party services, or even entering the world of cryptocurrency.
The use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in banking and other financial services is not new. However, one clear result of the past year’s turbulence is that these technologies will become an even more common part of the banking world. In fact, because of the anti-pandemic measures, the demands on digital customer service and by extension, the modern technologies that operate these technologies have increased even further.
The coronavirus epidemic has affected all sectors, including banking services, and it’s clear that it will also significantly affect where banking is headed in 2021 and beyond. But the government restrictions and limitations enacted to prevent the spread of coronavirus have not only shown where banks are going, but also how much they have changed in recent years. What can we expect from Czech banks in the near future and how will their customer relationships evolve?

The year 2020 and the corona virus crisis that defines it, has brought high levels of uncertainty and financial losses to a number of sectors. Banks are no exception, and many are reporting a decline in profits while searching for a way to return to pre-crisis results as soon as possible. There are many paths to optimizing revenue and spending, but financial institutions around the world are discovering that the concept of "open-banking," which has so far developed considerably less than expected, holds great potential.
This year's coronavirus pandemic, accompanied by a number of government restrictions, has transformed many industries, and of course, banking is no exception. The three primary areas of change in the banking industry are the accelerating pace of the digitization of services, access to bank branches and, last but not least, the use of cash. These three areas intersect to a large extent, but it is digitization that is the driving force behind the other subsequent changes.

Appearing on this list confirms BSC’s quality and solidifies their global relevance.
The Czech leader in banking software development, the Banking Software Company (BSC), is celebrating another international success.

The banking world is driven by modern technology and banks are competing with greater innovation and advanced and smarter internet/mobile banking. The idea that banks will no longer need in-house IT and that their focus will be “only” client care and their financial portfolios may sound even stranger. This is because turnkey technology will be provided by tech companies to banks, and most certainly by some of the largest ones, led by Google.
Simplicity and efficiency rule the business world, and in the service economy this is doubly true. The more complicated and complex life is, the more people demand maximum user friendliness from their service providers. This usually means a laser sharp focus on removing obstacles and smoothing the user experience. Unfortunately, most banks are still not doing enough in this area, and banking is still too complicated and often unfriendly. Obviously, this is a bad situation for users and hurts the reputation of the financial institutions themselves.
