A New Era of Efficiency and Customer Satisfaction for Regional Banks & Credit Unions

Winning in the war for Customer Deposits

ServiceNow Empowers Regional Banks and Credit Unions to Thrive 

Traditionally, local banks were favored for their attention to detail, community involvement, and convenience. Yet, in recent times, these banks have seen a decline in deposits as consumers have increasingly turned to Fintechs and large banks, under the assumption that smaller institutions couldn't match the offerings of their larger counterparts. The pandemic changed this. 

Local banks invested significantly in online and digital products and services. These advancements elevated their offerings to compete with those of Fintechs and large banks. Additionally, due to regulatory and structural advantages, regional banks and credit unions are often able to offer higher yields on certain products, positioning them strongly. ServiceNow plays a crucial role in facilitating regional banks and credit unions ongoing digital Transformation.
