afb Application Services AG checks digital maturity of financial services providers


Munich, 7 October 2015 – afb Application Services AG (afb), a leading European full-service provider for the optimisation of financing processes of banks and leasing companies, offers financial services providers the opportunity to assess their digital viability for the future with a "digital maturity check-up".

Digitisation could completely change the business model of almost half the companies in the leading industrialised nations within five years and lead to squeezing out of individual market participants. This is the finding of a recent study on the "Digital Vortex", conducted by Cisco and the International Institute of Management Development (IMD) business school in Lausanne. Companies should therefore lay the groundwork for a digital transformation in their own organisation early on.

With afb's three-day digital maturity check-up, financial services providers can have their existing processes assessed for future viability and potential for optimisation with regard to digital challenges. The result is an initial assessment of the financial services provider's digital maturity. The check-up involves afb consultants looking at the company's strategic orientation, processes and organisation, the technology implemented and the use of data analyses.

The afb consulting team comes not only with the methodological tools of the trade but also in-depth knowledge of the industry, based on decades of experience in the realisation of customer projects, and the necessary know-how with regard to current technologies. afb has time and again demonstrated its technological expertise, which comes from a long history of innovations that have had significant effects on the financial sector.

"Financial services providers are now more than ever forced to improve the flexibility of their processes and expand the range of services they offer. New products must be available at extreme speed across many different channels, the keyword being an omni-channel presence. However, this is only possible if IT systems are up to date and optimally reflect processes. With our check-up service, financial services providers receive an overview that provides evidence of a need for action, if one exists," explains Enrico Moritz, Manager of Business Development and Consulting at afb.
