Banks have to continuously innovate to stay competitive in the marketplace and find new and sustainable ways to reach out to new customers and retain existing ones. By adopting agency banking/branchless banking model, banks can reach out to the unbanked and underbanked population with ease and also serve their existing customers better.

Why Agency Banking?

Enhances Business Growth

Agency banking provides improved access to financial services in line with the bank’s corporate philosophy. It helps to attract new customers by making it easier to access banking services at their door-step which in turn contributes to increased revenue.

Reduce Total Cost of Ownership for Branch Network

Banks need not invest in additional infrastructure and can leverage the one that the agents already own and also reduce costs associated with running a branch such as a lease, utilities, security, maintenance, etc.

Competitive Positioning

Agency banking helps to position yourself in the competitive banking industry and leverage the convergence of telephony and financial services.
