Banking and Financial Services

To keep pace with challenging times and compete in an ever-changing financial market, Financial Institutions (FIs) need to be able to create products and services to meet constantly changing customer needs, shifting regulatory requirements and the demands of increasing cybersecurity risks. The Banking industry is being built on full digitalisation with the adoption of new technologies like automation and cloud at the heart of that change, but limitations of legacy IT systems continue to hinder many financial institutions from enhancing their customer experience. With the customer experience as the main focus, banks need to modernise their core front and back-end systems, applications and business processes to operate in an innovative and agile way..  

How Can VIP Apps Consulting Help You?

VIP Apps Consulting brings together the expertise, capabilities, and a technology alliance ecosystem to modernise core FI and banking systems and optimise business processes that deliver value in their operations and put the customer first.

Business process optimisation is a core goal for FIs looking to boost operational performance. We look for process overlaps and inefficiencies, review the permission and role matrices across your teams and systems, and develop recommendations for building more efficient and controlled processes throughout the organisation. Combined with the capabilities offered by our technology alliance partners, we are able to reduce or completely remove manual touch, streamline decision-making processes through automated data analysis, and help our clients get closer to the elusive paperless office.

Over the last few years, FIs have faced significant challenges, while at the same time, opportunities have emerged that have allowed many institutions to embrace innovative development, like open banking. Open banking uses application programming interfaces (APIs) to make certain customer data available, should the customer permit it, to third-party financial service providers. Through these APIs, external parties can transact directly with a financial institution’s core systems, providing the chance to create value offerings through data and the development of innovative products and services. Open banking requires a robust, agile, and scalable IT architecture to enable API integrations with multiple entities.

Our technology consultants can help you gauge internal capabilities and conduct a gap analysis to identify areas requiring capacity building and develop a scalable, agile infrastructure to offer greater modularity and easier configuration. Our business process experts optimise processes to integrate new workflows so that our clients can operate effectively in open banking environments. Together they identify internal processes and user journeys where API-enabled products and services can add greater value and unlock the banking value chain. Our approach enables access to data for better decision-making to deliver a seamless digital customer experience.

Technology Consulting

Unlike siloed services that other firms provide, our technology consulting services integrate a combination of accelerators, proprietary methodologies, and access to strategic alliances and platform ecosystems to modernise core business applications.

We help organisations create an applications landscape in the context of business function and business priorities, resulting in an organisation that’s ready for whatever the new normal brings.

System Assessment

The first step in your modernisation journey is running a system assessment to understand your applications environment and develop the business case. Our system assessment provides the organisation with valuable insight, reducing risks and costs by highlighting potential challenges and identifying areas of improvements.

Core Applications Modernisation

  • Gain insights from your data
