1- Automating Repetitive Tasks

Handling routine works, i.e. paperwork processing, frees up human employees to focus on more complex work that requires creativity, judgment and empathy:

  • Data entry – AI can extract, analyze and input large volumes of customer data, transaction records, loan applications etc with far greater speed and accuracy than humans. This frees up time for employees to focus on tasks requiring human judgment.
  • Paperwork processing – AI uses computer vision, NLP and workflow automation to digitally process forms, contracts, account opening documents etc. It understands written/printed text to extract key details without manual data entry.
  • Basic customer service – For common inquiries like account balances, payment due dates, interest rates etc, AI chatbots or voice assistants can handle the initial customer interactions through natural conversations. Only complex issues require human follow up.
  • Administrative tasks – AI robots can perform routine administrative work like scheduling appointments, processing mail, basic record keeping, inventory management and other repetitive clerical work with high precision.

2- Improving Fraud Detection

Improving fraud detection through advanced analytics of transaction patterns and customer behaviors. AI can spot anomalies that might indicate fraudulent activity:

  • Transaction monitoring – AI algorithms continuously monitor all customer transactions, accounts and behaviors to establish normal patterns. It detects any anomalies in amounts, payees, locations, timings etc that differ from established norms.
  • Customer profiling – AI builds detailed customer profiles over time based on demographics, financial history, device usage, locations accessed from etc. It identifies any suspicious changes to profiles, logging in from new devices/locations etc.
  • Predictive modeling – AI runs predictive models based on past known fraudulent transactions and customer attributes. It identifies any new cases that match the attributes of past fraud to proactively flag potentially fraudulent activities for investigation.
  • Network analysis – AI maps connections between different entities like customers, accounts, payees etc to identify complex fraud rings or money laundering networks that may not be obvious from isolated transactions.

3- Enhancing Customer Experience

Enhancing customer experience with personalized recommendations and proactive outreach. AI understands individual customers and their unique needs/preferences to offer tailored advice and services:

  • Personalized recommendations – AI understands transaction patterns, financial goals, risk profiles etc. of individual customers to recommend suitable savings, investment, insurance or loan products customized to their needs.
  • Proactive outreach – AI notifies customers in advance about upcoming payments, maturity dates, better offers or services available based on their relationship history and predicted needs rather than waiting for customers to inquire.
  • Conversational interfaces – AI chatbots and voice assistants provide 24/7 assistance to customers for basic services in a natural conversational manner across multiple channels like websites, apps, smart speakers etc.
  • Sentiment analysis – AI analyzes customer interactions, complaints and feedback to identify service gaps, pain-points or emerging needs. It helps banks continuously improve products and customer journeys.

4- Driving New Revenue Streams

Driving new revenue streams through AI-powered robo-advisors, investment strategies, lending decisions, etc. Banks can use AI to reach more customers and offer innovative new financial products:

  • Robo-advisors – AI manages investment portfolios for customers based on their risk profiles and financial goals with lower fees compared to human advisors. This opens up wealth management to the mass market.
  • Alternative lending – AI evaluates non-traditional creditworthiness factors like utility payments, mobile phone bills etc. to expand lending to underserved customer segments like students, freelancers etc.
  • Smart Insurance – AI assesses risk factors in real-time to offer usage-based, on-demand or micro insurance products customized for sharing economy users, travelers etc.
  • New product development – AI explores unmet needs of customers by analyzing massive customer/market datasets. It helps banks ideate and test-market completely new financial products and services.

5- Optimizing operations

Optimizing operations with predictive maintenance of systems/infrastructure, optimized scheduling of staff/resources, and simulated “what if” scenarios to test changes. AI helps banks run like a well-oiled machine:

  • Predictive maintenance – AI monitors performance data of core banking systems, ATMs, branches etc. to predict issues before they cause downtime. This improves uptime.
  • Resource optimization – AI algorithms analyze historical patterns to optimize scheduling of branch staff, support teams, cash replenishment etc. based on predicted customer arrival patterns and workload.
  • Simulation modeling – AI simulates “what if” scenarios of changes to products, processes, pricing etc. on large datasets to predict impact on metrics like sales, costs, risks etc. before implementation.
  • Anomaly detection – AI establishes normal baselines for key metrics like transactions, errors, response times etc. It alerts anomalies for root cause analysis and continuous improvement.

6- Reducing costs

Reducing costs through automation of back-office functions like data processing, compliance, accounting tasks that are rule-based and repetitive in nature. AI substitutes for expensive human labor:

  • Back-office automation – AI robots digitally process high volumes of applications, documents, transactions etc. using RPA. This reduces manual labor costs for back-office functions.
  • Contact center automation – AI chatbots and IVR handle a large percentage of basic customer queries without human agents, reducing call center operational costs significantly.
  • Compliance automation – AI reads contracts and regulations to stay updated. It checks customer onboarding and transactions for compliance and flags exceptions, freeing up compliance teams.
  • Accounting automation – AI processes invoices, pays bills, reconciles accounts, does book-keeping using RPA and analytics. This reduces costs of accounting and finance departments.
  • Procurement automation – AI analyzes spending patterns, vendor performance, market rates etc. to recommend cost saving opportunities through better negotiation or alternative sourcing.
