In addition to regular branch transactions customers have the opportunity to use an e-kiosk to have a video chat with a customer service representative, 24×7; disabled friendly features such as wheelchair access and suitably configured ATMs and electronic interfaces have also been introduced as well as environmentally friendly options such as a paperless processing experience avoiding the need to fill out physical forms. These innovations are setting new industry standards across the markets and serve to the benefit of all customers.
