COVID-19 Support

In uncertain times it is more important than ever for banks and insurers to stand by their customers and present themselves as part of the solution.

However, many organisations still follow the old, traditional operational model from the analogue era. Sticking to this in times of limited local presence and social distancing is not an option.

We need emergency measures that work. We need them NOW. A new system will need to be put in place. And yes, mid-term planning will have to be adjusted. Taking into account lessons learned, banks and insurers need to realign their long-term strategies.
