Find out why you are always ‘first in line’ with a digital bank
Nowadays, we rarely take out an encyclopedia because information is just a few clicks away on our phones. Even the Encyclopedia Britannica, one of the world's most comprehensive encyclopedias, has stopped publishing in print and is now available exclusively online.
However, where banking is concerned, many are still wary or have dilemmas about moving to online banking. The most common reason for worry is that the traditional banking approach is safer. Is this accurate? The answer is NO. Digital banking is equally safe, as safe as traditional banking, and offers a multitude of advantages. And why is this? Find out in the following text.
What is digital banking?
Digital or online banking is when a bank adapts its operations to you and your schedule. Simply put - banking services are available to you always and everywhere, at any time. Use them whenever it suits you. Regardless of whether you are at home, at work, on vacation in Greece - all you need to have is a phone (tablet or laptop) and a reliable internet connection. Everything you do is done in real time and you are always ‘first in line’, because there is no bank counter! With just two clicks, transfer money from a current to a foreign currency account, pay you bills via eBanking, you can even open an account online.
Digital banking isn’t yet the standard in our corner of the world, as is the case with the West, and it’s no wonder that many still have questions or concerns. However, we do live quickly, with our jobs, families and all the other obligations we have, the last thing we need is to wait in long queues in order to pay a loan instalment. If technology has made many aspects of our lives easier, why would we still maintain such a formal relationship with our bank? Digital banking is faster, easier, and equally safe as the traditional banking approach. The difference is in the user experience, and once you experience the comfort offered by an online bank, you will never go back.
How does digital banking function?
With the development of the internet and technology, we have changed the way we think and have gained access to new services, one being digital banking. Technology and the internet have always had an impact on banking services, but over the past few years, things have moved forward at an alarming rate. In the 21st century, the most valuable gift is time and precisely because of this, big changes are happening - it used to be that the client had to adapt to the Bank, now the bank adapts to the client. Digital banking offers the same traditional services, but with additional advantages, the most obvious of which is saving time. In order for things to function properly you need to have a phone and a good internet connection. Basically, the bank’s website and additional apps, such as mobile or internet banking, have replaced the branch and physical contact, so now you have your bank in the palm of your hands!
