Emerging Technologies in The Healthcare Sector

Posted by Anna Mielczarek on 15-Nov-2018 07:30:00

‘Consumers around the world are ready to embrace AI and robotics for their healthcare needs’ says Dennis Brown from PwC.

According to PwC research more than half of customers (54%) are willing to engage with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics for their healthcare needs. Easier and quicker accessibility (34%) as well as faster and more accuracy (31%) are seen as the main advantages of using new technology in the healthcare, while ‘human touch’ (47%) and trust (38%) are the biggest challenges.

How Digital Transformation Can Help You Improve Customer Engagement

Posted by Anna Mielczarek on 16-Oct-2018 07:30:00

Over the past several years, a great majority of organisations have been focusing their efforts on deploying Digital Transformation into their businesses. Nowadays, there is a growing need for digital innovation that can bring a company closer to becoming a digital enterprise. And only new technologies have the power to enable companies to create more agile environment, become more flexible, scalable, while also delivering a seamless and consistent customer experience across channels.  

But while Digital Transformation can indeed help businesses achieve all that, for many, it may seem that this movement towards world run by technology and automation would make brands more distant from the consumers, instead of connecting with them more personally.

However, it is not true, and in fact, if implemented successfully, Digital Transformation is more than likely to help companies improve customer engagement.

How Emerging Technologies Are Transforming The Retail Industry

Posted by Anna Mielczarek on 11-Oct-2018 07:30:00

Retail industry has taken a sharp turn. When we compare, what retail was about 10 or 15 years ago, and what it is now, the transformation is enormous. In fact, it makes us realise how fast the industry has changed with the help of innovative IT solutions, and the new technology.

To understand it better, let’s look at the example: before, when someone had to make a purchase, they had a handful of options i.e. few local stores to choose from. And then, it was enough, but now the situation is quite different. Customers of digital age have a multitude of options to decide how and where to buy the product from. With an abundance of information available at the fingertips, customers have high demands and expectations from the retailer – for example, nowadays, we don’t want to simply buy products in the store – we want to get them delivered to our house, and we want it fast.

Top 5 UK Challenger Banks You Should Know About

Posted by Anna Mielczarek on 09-Oct-2018 07:30:00

Digital Transformation has changed the established way of operating a business across plethora of industries – and banking is no exception. New start-ups keep challenging traditional service providers with a more personalised and innovative service. And although, traditional banks have been slow to adapt, they need to change it now, especially if they still want to be relevant in the industry.

Challenger banks are digital banks with no high-street branches. They are much more flexible, more user friendly, quicker to adapt to users' needs, and more personal than any traditional bank. But their biggest advantage over other well-established financial institutions is that they have been founded in the age of digital literacy, that means starting fresh with a digital offering and the use of the latest technology available. For this reason, challenger banks can incorporate new products more quickly, and with less friction through their platform business model, which can easily connect customers with new products developed by third parties. And this greatly increases customer choice.

So, which UK challenger banks are shaking up the industry? Let’s find out.
