In a society of constant evolution like ours, banks are at a particularly decisive moment for their future.
Both millennials and new generations collide with traditional models in which, even today, many banks operate.
For these people, going to the bank office to “make arrangements” is as unnatural as going down to the video store to rent a movie or send a Christmas card to their families.
To this circumstance must be added the emergence of certain banks, made by and for current generations, who are concerned with ending the hegemony of traditional banks.
In this context, financial institutions are making great efforts to modernize.
However, these are large companies, with many workers, clients and boards of directors, and therefore they can almost never advance at the speed at which today’s digital society advances.
However, the efforts are there. Many of these banks have perfectly functional mobile applications and are modernizing their offices.
However, if they want to maintain the pace at which society moves, betting on new technologies seems like a basic need.
In this sense, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are two technologies that cover many of today’s society’s needs, and that can help the banking sector to evolve in multiple ways.
What can virtual reality and augmented reality bring to banks?
The truth is that this question has multiple answers.
Both virtual reality and augmented reality are still in constant growth.
Augmented reality is a very common element in our day to day.
To access this technology, we need a smartphone that interacts with physical bookmarks.
In the case of virtual reality, although it is not yet adopted by 100% of people, the truth is that it is increasingly common, and every time more devices appear that adapt to the needs of different audiences.
In addition, both the one and the other have experienced to be very useful in multiple sectors.
Virtual reality, key to modernize the concept of “office”
Thanks to virtual reality, you can recreate bank offices that customers can visit whenever they want and from anywhere.
In this way, it ends with, for many people, tedious process of having to go to the office, which is not always open or always close enough.
In addition, the offices generated by virtual reality help to reduce the expenses derived from the physical offices (the rent of the premises, the payrolls of the employees, the invoices, etc.).
