At the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Chairman of Pilatus Bank draws a stark comparison of the role technology has played in banking vs telecommunication21.9.2017 08:58 | Pressemelding
LONDON, Sept. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ali Sadr, Chairman of Pilatus Bank, believes that banks have failed to capture the true essence of technology for improving quality of service, as well as lacking the vision necessary to capture customers' imaginations. Meanwhile, other industries have been revolutionized and continue to thrive by the same technology. America has in the last 10 years been forced to close 10,000 branches. Since 2008, Europe has lost close to 48,000 branches, which is more than 20% of its branch network. There is little doubt that branch banking is on the decline, and online banking is failing to provide a quality service. As we mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Ali Sadr, Chairman of Pilatus Bank, gives a sobering count of the current state of affairs in the use of technology among well established banks, and elaborates on a vision that has the potential to become the largest revolution the banking industry is yet to experience. Chairman Al
