How Mobility and Connectivity Bring Value to Financial Services

Posted March 20, 2015

pr_1157When it comes to maintaining secure financial operations and providing top-notch customer service, success hinges on an organization’s ability to transform information into insight. Additionally, with fraud and theft on the rise, it’s critical that financial institutions constantly improve protection plans. And since no two financial organizations are alike, a variety of multi-level security options is needed. From print-on-demand (POD) technologies that enable “intelligent” access cards and radio frequency identification (RFID) to desktop printers and document and record tracking applications, organizations are capable of securing people, products and property across their operations—while maintaining a high level of customer service.

Financial information, assets and communications are mission critical. It’s vital that solutions and devices enable officials to locate, track and manage personnel, confidential materials and high-value assets in real time—after all, the best security is proactive, not reactive. Furthermore, it’s crucial that only authorized individuals have access to secure locations. In addition to leveraging the value of mobile devices and printers, organizations can take advantage of opportunities afforded by the Internet of Things (IoT) by utilizing a set of enabling technologies to connect, capture and then analyze the data to make more informed decisions. Connecting devices to one cloud platform will enable them to gain actionable insight into their operations and processes—providing the asset intelligence they need to stay competitive.
