Solutions that enable financial institutions to generate extra income through ATMs sparked the most interest. Self-service devices can be used, for example, as a currency exchange point.
The geography of participants covered the countries of the Caucasus region, Eastern Europe, the European Union, as well as Turkey, and the USA. The attendees talked about post-covid banking, digital platforms and equipment for payment processing, cybersecurity trends, the future of financial services, and other fintech-related topics. Kirill Ovsiannikov, Deputy General Director of BS/2, talked about trends in the banking sector’s digital transformation:
“It varies from service to service how easily digital tools are implemented. Clients want to resolve some issues during interpersonal communication with the help of a bank employee. Most of the time, it’s consulting. Don’t forget the audience either, which has limited access to modern technologies. As long as clients find these formats convenient, traditional bank branches, ATM networks, and self-service kiosks will continue to be in demand.”
