Why Banking and Financial Services is the Most Mature Sector for RPA and AI Adoption

December 14, 2017

All industries face the dual pressure of lowering operating costs while driving revenue growth. Traditional banks and financial services firms perhaps feel this pressure more acutely as they continue to struggle with revenue and profitability in the perfect storm of regulation, consumerism, and competitive disruption that continues to engulf them in the post-global financial crisis. Intelligent automation is one of the critical levers BFS firms are exploring to help them optimize their topline/bottom line balancing act.
