Most FIs need branches today and well into the future to provide competitive convenience, tangible branded differentiation and a physical place to build relationships. At the same time, today’s branches must be less expensive and more productive, which requires new business models and branded experiences.
Personal teller machines (PTMs), aka interactive teller machines or video tellers, are allowing FIs to transfer physical transactions out of the branch to a call center. Based on the math alone, PTMs seem to be a solution that will drive viable financial branch models by reducing branch space and staff by 40 percent to 70 percent, while continuing to support the same level of deposits and loans.

Yesterday, credit unions and banks often developed one branch business model and applied it to all markets. Today, technology, evolving brands and the need to right size branches to market potential is driving the creation of a variety of branch sizes and component parts. In the following slides we present 10 + basic branch concepts being deployed across North America. Within each type there are numerous subtypes based on each FIs brand characteristics, target customer/market, market product and service drivers, level of technology integration and budgets. This large number of branching options is a two edged sword. Branching is expensive and each institution must select the right solutions that deliver a unique and highly productive experience for customers and staff. This is the work we are doing for credit unions and banks across North America.
