Challenges Financial Institutions face in their Print Environment

By Efficient, Green Office, Innovation, Managed Print, Managed Print Environments, Managed Print Expectations, Managed Print Services, Managed Print Solutions, MPS, Office Automation, Office Printing, Office Solutions, Print Environment, Printing Industry No Comments

The South African Financial Institutions are well known, as ambassadors for the country.  Their contributions in sport, art and education has made phenomenal strides in improving revenue and reputation, a mutual benefit for both the institutes and the country.  The major financial institutes share similar challenges within the core industry.

These are namely:

  • Growth and market-share of the business and their portfolios,
  • Creating or improving on their customer experience ie. customer relationship,
  • Conquering new revenue streams, and last, but not least
  • Digital Transformation of their legacy systems and moving towards a paperless environment

Despite the future vision the above challenges offer, printing is still a major focus despite its challenges for the majority of the financial institutes.  Even with the launch of the newer digital platform banks (as seen in the media – Tyme and Discovery Bank), many South Africans are very much loyal to the traditional financial houses.  Ergo, printing is and will still be a requirement for many years to come.
