Speaking about the new digital banking platform, Managing Director of Phillips Consulting, Mr. Robert Taiwo, said “In banking, the digital discourse has shifted from ‘nice to have’, to critical business imperative. Market share will increasingly swing to those banks that can quickly and effectively respond to technology advancements. The ability to grapple with 4.0 technologies such as AI, Big Data, Robotics, and Blockchain, will differentiate the leaders from followers. Superior interconnectivity and system integration will enhance customer-centricity and this by default will accelerate first mover advantage.”

Progressive financial institutions in Nigeria rely on the partnership between Phillips Consulting and Intellect for digital transformation initiatives such as Intellect Global Transaction Banking with Supply Chain Finance, One Treasury Platform, Intellect Retail Banking eXchange, Intellect Digital Branch, Intellect Collect, Intellect Corporate Business Exchange, Intellect Core Banking Application, Intellect Loan Origination, Intellect Basel 3 etc, cutting-edge products & solutions for banking and insurance, with design being the companies’ key differentiator in enabling digital transformation.

Mr. Taiwo advised that technology must not become the end in itself.  “Me too” strategies will not be effective. CEOs must therefore drive business aligned digital strategies which speak directly to the operating models and value propositions of their respective organisations”. Recently, a top Merchant Bank adapted this solution, making it the first to adopt the platform in Nigeria. And we are sure that several financial institutions in Nigeria will soon show interest in this new digital platform.
