Is There a “New Tech” Obstacle for Smaller Financial Orgs?

Community banks and credit unions are at a disadvantage. Their lack of necessary internal resources and budget to upgrade their systems and integrate new technologies compared to big banks means the "cutting edge" services that a new generation of consumers have come to expect are slower to arrive at "non-giant" institutions.

Additionally, the banking industry is more competitive than ever as new fintech companies like Chime, Brex, and Acorn hit targeted markets. Community banks and credit unions also perform much more manual work compared to these new fintech companies, basically prohibiting certain service offerings in the short term.

Take these examples:

Businessman using mobile online banking and payment, Digital marketing. Finance and banking networking. Online shopping and icon customer network connection, cyber security. Business technology.
  • Community banks and credit unions lack the ability to deploy automation beyond simple manual image reviews of mobile and RDC deposits.
  • The same is true for ATM deposits for those community banks and credit unions that have image-based ATMs. However, many of these institutions still rely on envelope deposits through the ATM channel.
  • Without strong fraud mitigation software, community banks and credit unions struggle to reduce restrictions on mobile deposits, impacting their ability to compete head-to-head with larger banks.

Based on the above examples, many community bank and credit union leaders struggled to fund upgrades to renew their existing core platform systems and fear that a significant fraud loss could create catastrophic consequences for their institutions. Better technology can act as an insurance policy to guard against potential risk.

Competing with the Big Banks

Community banks and credit unions often feel overwhelmed by the technological capabilities of large banks who invest billions of dollars in upgrades every year. Fortunately, there are technology partners ready to assistJack Henry & Associates (JHA) and Finicity are teaming up to ease the adoption of open banking functionality for the non-giants who need to stay in the game. Additionally, Alogent recently introduced a modernized payments infrastructure called APG.

 There are a plethora of Fintech technologies currently available or being developed to automate payments processing.

One advantage community banks and credit unions have over large banks is their strong relationships with customers/members – a point of differentiation that Forbes.com recommends they leverage. Over the past few years, there have been many breakthroughs in AI and machine learning technologies and deployment of those technologies. Concurrent with those breakthroughs, industry partners like OrboGraph are ready to assist community banks and credit unions.

How Emerging Technology Can Achieve Full Automation and Combat Fraud

Community banks and credit unions should prioritize modernizing the payment channels that need it most. For example, checks, a primary cog in the digital payments ecosystem, according to Deluxe Corp. With the introduction of AI and deep learning technologies, we have seen unprecedented results – with automation rates exceeding 99% and accuracy rates over 99.5% translating to faster processing, fewer customer errors, and reduced costs.

Automation Levels - Check Line of Business final-01

The achievements of AI and deep learning also extend into check fraud. In a recent news release, OrboGraph announced its OrbNet Forensic AI technology – leading to prevention rates as high as 95%. As we covered in the  Modernizing Omnichannel Check Fraud Detection Blog, fraudsters continue to target checks as a primary payments channel to extract funds from banks and their customers. While the banking giants can write off losses, community banks and credit unions suffer more as the losses become a burden to the bottom line and hurt customer relationships. While a few community banks and credit unions are deploying some analytics-based technology, more is needed.

It is clear that the pathway for smaller financial institutions to compete starts with partnering with the right fintechs and technology vendors. From automation of check processing to fighting check fraud, no one company can do it alone.
