The Power of Strategic Integration and Innovation


The fundamental structure of the banking industry is changing.

Higher interest rates, new regulations, and a multitude more of disruptive forces are reshaping how community and regional banks and credit unions generate income.1 Navigating these upcoming challenges will require a fresh perspective, innovative solutions, and a renewed focus on fee income opportunities.

adapting to the new norm

The dynamics of the relationships people have with their financial institutions have changed.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for community and regional banks and credit unions to make processes simpler, more agile, and more responsive to the needs of accountholders.  

“Satisfaction among credit union members and bank customers with their primary financial institution during the pandemic dropped considerably.”2 As a result, 34% of Americans are considering changing financial institutions in the next year. Of those definitely looking to switch, 17% say online or mobile banking capabilities will be the most important decision-maker.3

So, the question becomes: how can you give your accountholders all of the digital capabilities they need while generating non-interest income? Strategic integrations and open banking.

using open banking to generate revenue

Through open banking, you can become the financial hub for your accountholders by providing external aggregation.

Right now, your accountholders are buying, saving, spending, and planning with up to 40 different financial providers.4 By offering the opportunity to aggregate their financial data into a single app – yours – you’ll gain visibility into your accountholders’ financial lives so you can identify new opportunities and trends, upping your chances of becoming first-app in a noisy financial world.

You can also use open banking to offer tailored financial products and services through strategic integrations with third-party fintech providers. While some of these integrations provide convenient services that drive loyalty and create stickiness, others provide non-interest income opportunities through revenue sharing or fee-based services.

By creating a revenue-sharing ecosystem, you can offer your accountholders access to the third-party-developed services they’re already using or want – simultaneously strengthening your relationships while profiting from a subscription, cross-sell, or referral structure.

fee income opportunities 

In the realm of fee income opportunities, community and regional banks and credit unions are witnessing transformative innovations that go beyond conventional banking practices – offering unparalleled opportunities for growth and enhanced accountholder satisfaction. Here are just a few examples of fee income opportunities banks and credit unions are exploring:

direct deposit

Atomic is a pioneer leveraging the Banno Digital Platform’s open APIs to embed its technology into the digital expe-riences offered by community and regional banks and credit unions. Atomic’s deposit plugin – which is seamlessly integrated into the Banno Digital Platform – introduces a first-to-market direct deposit switch and set-up solution. This enables your accountholders to digitally set up and switch direct deposits, driving account growth and profitability.

onboarding and adoption

The Digital Onboarding engagement platform is another game-changer. It transforms account openers into fully engaged and profitable relationships through personalized messages, microsites, and self-service enrollment tools. Col-laborating with Jack Henry, Digital Onboarding ensures personalized and consistent messages across channels, giv-ing you the edge in driving product and service adoption.

identity protection and credit management
