2011 is the year of mobile/smart phone banking. No longer just a trendy, niche product for urbanites or an economic godsend for African and third world markets, accessing banking services on your phone is now mainstream, with almost every major retail bank in the US and Europe launching mobile banking services.
To mark the ‘Year of mobile banking’, Finextra will be offering a lively webcast discussing the most dynamic trends in mobile banking innovation (www.finextra.com/mbank). Sponsored by Sybase and supported by the Mobey Forum, this webcast features Barclaycard, HSBC and VTB24 discussing and debating how banking will evolve in 2011 and beyond.
The webcast will be broadcast at 14:30 UK time on 1st June 2011 and will subsequently be available to view on-demand.
Our panel will discuss:
- Lessons learnt – what banks are doing well with mobile banking, what needs to be improved?
- What are the ‘killer apps’ that make the panel jealous?
- Proximity payments: NFC technology, challenges (e.g. Merchant terminals) and alternate solutions (e.g. stickers)
- How are the network providers and suppliers enabling (or hindering) innovation?
- What role will technology providers have in mobile banking advancement?
- Will Google influence the industry? What about hot new companies like Square?
- How will social media tools influence banks’ customer front ends?
