Being Digital in Africa
Accenture believes that banks and financial institutions are at crossroads: to remain a traditional bank, but embrace digital to become a highly efficient utility or to alternatively make the shift toward the Everyday Bank, extending customer reaching and delivering new value for both the customer and the bank. Whichever path you choose, both require a new mind-set that embraces the digital era and the new customer. It’s time banks stopped doing digital and start being digital.
