Customer Engagement

The notion that the customer comes first seems blindingly obvious, but truly executing against that simple saying is an area where many financial institutions have historically fallen short. But new developments – Covid, Big Tech, and Fintech/Insurtech – mean that lip service is no longer sufficient. Financial institutions must deliver exceptional experiences to their customers, in real-time, and remotely.

Video Interviews

Cloud Kings in Financial Services

In this series, Celent interviews a diverse set of service providers, ranging from hosting services and infrastructure provides to platforms and consultants.
