A banker may think the quote, “You’ve got to take on growth tactics and a growth mindset that’s different than the way you did in the past,” had come from the main stage at Bank Director’s annual Acquire or Be Acquired Conference, an event that focuses primarily on financial institution growth. Instead, it came from a tiny studio six floors up, in a recorded conversation between two non-bankers.
Derik Sutton, chief marketing officer of Autobooks, a payments technology company that provides banks invoicing, accounts receivable and accounts payable solutions for their business customers, owns those words. He believes that community banks are positioned to earn and retain business customer relationships by finding and acting on their customers’ moments of need.
In this episode of Reinventing Banking, a special podcast series brought to you by Bank Director and Microsoft Corp., Sutton describes traditional banking practices that can be reimagined for digital, why convenience is king in the payments space and how asking hard questions could be key to getting ahead.
Instead of discerning what their business customers need from digital reports, it may be time for bankers to lace up their boots and get back on Main Street to find out for themselves.
