Low-code for financial services
In the financial world, the pressure to digitize and innovate is increasing by the day. With strict regulations and a demanding customer landscape, it is important for financial institutions to engage in digital transformation. But how can you manage the complexity of technology and people without skyrocketing costs and lengthy projects? The answer is low-code. In this article, you will discover why low-code is so suitable for the financial sector!
The digital challenges within finance
Financial services firms navigate a complex landscape of stringent regulations, the need for operational efficiency, and the expectations of today’s customers. While struggling with aging systems, they are also under pressure to innovate amid growing cybersecurity threats. All of this requires seamless integration of technology, data-driven decision-making and scalable solutions that respond to both current and future challenges.
Explaining low-code as a technology
Terms like low-code have been in the news more and more lately. It sounds very technical, but what exactly is it? You can think of it as a toolkit. You use predefined modules to build a complete application, just as you put LEGO bricks together to build something. The result? Fast, efficient application development without having to build everything from scratch.
The rise of low-code in a financial world
Traditional software development is expensive and time-intensive. Low-code reduces the need for extensive manual coding, leading to lower development costs.
Regardless of whether it is a bank, insurance company or pension fund, financial institutions have a specific customer set and specific needs. With low-code, you can create custom applications that fit seamlessly with your specific services and customer base.
Agility in a rapidly changing world
Financial organizations must respond to market changes, regulatory updates and customer needs. With low-code, applications can be launched in days or weeks, which is much faster than the months it takes when using traditional development methods.
The ROI of investing in low-code
Investing in low-code offers financial institutions numerous benefits. It speeds up the product launch, resulting in a faster time-to-market. It also helps reduce costs, as manual coding and traditional software development are often more expensive. Furthermore, it increases operational efficiency, allowing employees to focus on other critical tasks. Finally, it improves customer satisfaction by providing faster and smoother service. All this contributes to a positive return on investment.
Examples of low-code applications in finance
Here are some examples of low-code application applicationsyou can create:
|Risk Management||Risk management apps allow you to monitor real-time risk and compliance levels. This ensures faster decision-making and better compliance with laws and regulations (compliance)|
|Customer portals||A customer portal that is not only user-friendly, but also provides a personalized user experience. In terms of functionalities, think balance checks, or performing transactions. This allows your customers to act more autonomously, which increases customer satisfaction|
|Automation of processes||Financial workflows such as credit applications or claims management can be time-consuming. Low-code allows these processes to be automated. This reduces processing time and improves the customer experience|
|Fraud Detection||You can develop systems that identify suspicious activity in real time|
|Data analysis||You can develop tools that analyze large data sets, generating valuable insights about financial trends and customer behavior. This helps in making informed decisions|
|Integration of legacy systems||Older IT systems are often a stumbling block to digital transformation. Low-code provides opportunities for smoother integration of legacy systems with modern solutions, resulting in seamless workflow and operational efficiency|
