The financial services industry is reinventing itself, and consumers’ attitudes toward mobile technology are a big reason why.
Since 2010, innovative and fast-moving FinTech companies have poured $50 billion into everything from mobile payments to insurance. These digital disrupters are tapping into the “liquid expectations” of customers who compare banks to the no-friction mobile services and products they receive from other sectors (i.e., Amazon, Uber etc.) – and find banks lacking.
Vox Mobile is helping financial services companies keep up with disrupters by taking mobile way beyond the basics of mobile banking, bill pay, deposit and P2P payments.

Manufacturers contributed $2.17 trillion to the U.S. economy in 2015. If taken alone, this highly competitive sector would be the ninth-largest economy in the world. And mobility is being used throughout it - helping to drive leaner processes, dramatically increase productivity and lower labor costs across the production line all the way to the retail channels. Researchers say mobile apps are saving manufacturers a daily average of 42 minutes per employee, and will change how they stay in touch with their end customer for service and product resale opportunities.
Vox Mobile is helping manufacturers in a wide range of verticals to capitalize on mobility’s ability to efficiently connect people, data and processes.

Why is it so hard for IT and the Business to work together?
The business is striving for growth and profit while IT gets tasked with limiting cost and risk. Mobile Thought Leaders have been discussing the inevitable problems that arise when Lines of Business or individual departments embark on mobile or digital transformation initiatives without the support or knowledge of the IT department. The reasons for these rogue projects are numerous and the complaints are not unfounded.
MTL members that have made progress on Digital Transformation have also gotten to a better place with internal relationships.
