17 Nov Banking Industry takes Containers to New Heights
What does a modern bank look like? When we look at Financial Institutions’ main elements;
- Physical presence;
- Regional headquarters in each country where they are active;
- Own-branded ATMs;
- Face-to-face or one-to-one customer service;
- Dedicated account managers.
- Safety as a priority
- Personalized service;
- Easy to handle cash payments and withdrawals;
It should be said traditional banks have ramped up their innovation, by converting shipping containers into fully-functorial bank branches. Shipping containers can be fully customised and equipped with state-of-the-art bank infrastructures such as ATMs, teller services, and ADT services. These services will allow customers to deposit cheques or cash, open accounts, withdraw money, as well as apply for loans and other services.
Customised mobile banking units include; Bullet Resistant Glass, Anti-bandit Doors, Audio Service Windows, ATM facilities, Air-conditioning, fully insulated, Kitchenette facilities, and electricity.
Mobile banking units offer the advantage of being cost-effective, easily transportable, flexible, and offer convenience to customers. By taking on this community-oriented concept, banking mobile units can be placed in rural areas, which ensures accessibility to a larger market.
