Introduction of cloud technology in the finance industry has helped revive the cooperative banking industry by allowing them to upgrade and modernise their service portfolio without incurring large IT expenses. Cooperative banks can now offer services like online banking, multi-channel banking and doorstep banking through cloud platform.
Cloud Tech in Coop Banking
Banks are rapidly adopting cloud-delivered platforms, applications and business processes, as it offers a series of advantages over traditional monolithic environment. In the cooperative banking sector, it has helped address the biggest challenges faced by these banks in serving customers manpower, money and technology. Cloud adoption has allowed them the following benefits:
• Optimising manpower and eliminating overhead redundancy by automating and streamlining operational process
• Reducing expenses by offering modern technological solutions through cloud platform
• Create a technologically empowered environment that would allow cooperative banks to widen their customer base by creating innovative product range and integrating more channels, like doorstep banking
