Now’s the Best Time for Investing in Modern Banking Technology

FEATURING: Maureen Doyle-Spare, general manager at UST

With the possibility of a recession, financial institutions of all sizes may be considering a delay or cut in technology spending. As seen by recent challenges at Southwest Airlines, falling behind in technology capabilities can create enormous costs in the short-term and in the future.

According to Forrester, firms pursuing technology-driven innovation grow three to four times faster than industry averages. Just as importantly, new technologies can reduce the cost of doing business, improve customer and employee experiences, and provide a long-term competitive advantage.

I am excited to have Maureen Doyle-Spare, general manager at the digital transformation consulting firm UST on the Banking Transformed podcast. We will be discussing how the pursuit of technology investments regardless of the economy will ensure financial institutions will be future-ready.
