Banks and credit unions have a responsibility to sustainability as a part of their community and global impact. Sustainability can be seen as an unnecessary or expensive venture, especially in community banking. However, BBVA notes that sustainability can create opportunities for banks or credit unions. Focusing these opportunities can often lead to less costly solutions and better environmental outcomes. Benchmark is proud to support programs and services that celebrate sustainability.
Accommodating growing customer needs should be a priority to banks and credit unions. Keeping up with evolving customer demands is not always conducive to a traditional bank or credit union environment. More technology in branches may accommodate some consumer needs but often further action is required to satisfy customers. Branch transformation is a focused change that integrates technology and retail banking spaces. These changes make branches more appealing to customers while optimizing banking technology.
