Financial services is an industry in the midst of a period of great change. New technologies, changing customer habits and lifestyles, as well as fluctuating markets are posing banks, stock brokerages, hedge funds, and insurance companies brand-new headaches.
The volume of online banking has soared in recent times and this trend shows no sign of slowing down. HSBC cites research by RFi Group which claims that 71 per cent of consumers globally are now using digital banking channels weekly.
Meanwhile, paper volumes and footfall in bank branches and offices are dramatically down. Why, then, do organizations in this sector continue to leave money on the table when it comes to their print investment?
They must adjust, adapt, and reinvent their approach if they wish to become more robust and leaner enterprises. In the digital age adaptability and agility are king, and this demands the best tools across all aspects of the organization.
In Managed Print Services (MPS) these organizations have a ready-made solution.
Building core competencies
Transition is never easy – the path can often be full of bumps and twists and turns, but it can made easier. The transition to paperless offices and more efficient workflows is no different.
A more holistic approach is required to get departments and branches working as one. In the hybrid working age, document solutions extend way beyond prints and scans, and this is where Managed Print Solutions comes into its own.
Make the most of your printing investment
There are two fundamental components of optimizing document solutions expenditure: control and knowledge. Quality, real-time data helps CEOs and managers make accurate business decisions. With so many printing and mobile devices connecting to shared networks, today’s companies have lost significant control, not only over their devices but also in terms of running costs and the security of confidential data.
MPS fleet assessments are key to determining your current print environment capabilities and shortfalls. They examine workflows, document infrastructure and data security across all areas in order to identify pressure points and needless waste, as well as opportunities for real gains.

Workflows that flow
With reduced on-site staff right across the country, financial services organizations need to work more efficiently than ever. They need the right tools to become more agile, so they can quickly adapt to changing customer needs and behaviors. Applications such as Kyocera Mobile Print and KYOCERA Capture Manager facilitate seamless workflows and, in turn, help eliminate unnecessary bottlenecks. The rise of online operations has drastically reduced paper volumes, but printing devices still constitute a hugely important tool of day-to-day operations. Given this, downtime continues to pose major headaches for branch managers. By using Kyocera Fleet Services (KFS), MPS providers can remotely monitor devices across all locations and tackle potential issues before they become a problem, thus keeping costly and frustrating downtime to a minimum.
