Strategic Planning

Financial institutions are faced with understanding current trends and the demands of younger generation customers and members. Technology is rapidly changing too, and that must also be incorporated into the Strategic Plan. Optimizing multichannel financial services by leveraging technology is just one dimension to growing your Financial Institution. Strategic Planning must come before technology implementation to ensure that business goals are correctly aligned with selected technology solutions. These solutions must be vetted against the Financial Institution’s business objectives so that the technology efficiently serves the business.

Technology Review

Our advisors take a holistic view of the technology infrastructure when we assisting our clients with a technology assessment and technology plan. Our process includes:

  • Gathering data with our electronic technology questionnaire
  • On-site interviews with all levels of management to understand all needs and opportunities for improvement
  • Extensive cost analysis of all technology costs and providing measurements for long-term cost management, and
  • Producing a working document that will enable you to manage and transition through a long-term technology plan

Vendor Contract Negotiation

When bringing in a new Financial Institution technology vendor, one of the most important parts of the process is the contract negotiation. With the right contract in place, your business can move forward knowing you are getting the technology you need at a price that works in your budget. While the amount of savings varies tremendously based on a number of factors, such as how many solutions you have with a particular vendor, the time since the prior contract and other factors, we see a minimum savings of between 9 and 23 percent on their total technology spends after our thorough technology negotiation services. Several of our clients are able to save much more than this.
