Sibos 2017 Toronto

Billed as “the world’s premier financial services event” Sibos 2017 Toronto has made a bold claim. However, it’s a claim that the conference can back up. In 1978, Sibos was simply a seminar about banking operations. But much like the financial services industry itself, the conference has grown to become much, much more than that. Sibos is now an annual conference, exhibition, and networking event, with around 8,000 leaders from financial services in attendance.

The four-day conference takes place between the dates: Monday, October 16th, and Thursday, October 19th at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. There will be over 200 exhibitors, hundreds of speakers and conference sessions and plenty of opportunities to discuss business strategy and grow networks that will shape the future of finance.

Regardless of your specialty within financial services, Sibos Toronto 2017 will cater to your unique needs and interests. The programme is organized into four streams: banking, compliance, securities, and technology. Each stream has a different focus, but all follow the same theme.

The theme of this year’s conference is: “Building for the Future,” focusing on four emerging areas of concern for financial institutions:

  1. Cybersecurity
  2. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  3. The impact of geopolitical and regulatory shifts
  4. Data and identity

A working knowledge of these topics can help any leader in financial services prepare their business for the future! Don’t miss this event, register today at https://www.sibos.com/plan-your-trip.

Digital Marketing for Financial Services Summit: Europe – Recap

, , ,

Last week, Veriday CEO, Marc Lamoureux (@mlamveriday), attended the Digital Marketing for Financial Services Summit: Europe in London, England. In addition to having our CEO speak, Veriday was a Gold Sponsor of the event. The event took place at the Tower Hotel, located along the River Thames, next to the world famous World Heritage Site, The Tower of London from September 21st to September 22nd.

The setting was phenomenal. In the shadows of a medieval tower, financial marketers from across the world shared ideas about how the financial services industry can prepare for the future. In a location that for centuries has been used to isolate people and valuables from the rest of society, digital marketers discussed how the financial services industry can create more connections.

Our CEO, Marc Lamoureux, took the stage on Day 1 of the event to discuss how banks and other financial institutions can humanize digital channels, making them more inviting to consumers. His presentation at the Digital Marketing for Financial Services Summit touched on several of the topics he discussed in one of our previous blog posts: Brand Personification: Why Should You Care?

The Digital Marketing for Financial Services Summit: Europe featured many informative keynote presentations:

Thomas Barta (@ThomasBarta on Twitter), discussed how marketers need to become (and in many cases, are already becoming) leaders of change to open the conference. It was a motivational presentation that raised the energy in the room. After he left the stage, the energy in the room suggested that nearly everyone there was ready to become a more motivated agent of change.

Another excellent presentation, this one by Kirsten Burt of UBS, discussed how distributing content through client advisors benefits financial enterprises, customers and advisors alike. That keynote hit home for those in attendance from Veriday because we work every day to create better connections between financial agents and their customers.

At Veriday, we believe that “the human touch” is an important factor for financial brands. To help enable humanized digital experiences, we developed a platform, Digital Agent, that helps financial enterprises create compliant, on-brand digital experiences for their network of agents.

While those two presentations jumped out to us, there were so many excellent presentations about the use of data in financial services marketing, creating connections through digital channels and how financial services brands can prepare for the future.

If you missed the Digital Marketing for Financial Services Summit: Europe, don’t stress. There is another Summit coming up in just a few months. The Digital Marketing for Financial Services Summit: New York, is less than two months away, you do not want to miss it!

Chris Lamoureux, COO of Veriday, elaborates on the recent Network of Giving Partnership

, ,

In late September, we were excited to announce our partnership with the Network of Giving. Network of Giving specializes in delivering technology solutions to support important causes and communities around the world. NOG is a value added software and IP tool that empowers billions of caring consumers purchasing goods and services digitally which can benefit local organizations and causes seamlessly.

Recently, Chris Lamoureux, COO of Veriday Inc., elaborated more on this partnership and what it means in terms of future projects, innovation, and what this means to all the charities involved.

What is the extent of the relationship between Veriday and the Network of Giving?  What will you be doing together as partners?

Chris:  Changing the world is not easy, sometimes it takes a lot of time; days, weeks, months, years, sometimes decades. Although, with clear focus, a goal and vision in mind, changes can happen and make a positive influence on the world. We’ve been working with Network of Giving for several years now to help them change the world through one transaction at a time. The Network of Giving harnesses the power of everyday digital transactions, supports important causes, and helps communities around the world become more prosperous and resilient, particularly local communities.

What solution will we be creating together?  What problem does it solve for the customers?

Chris:  Through pioneering innovations, technology, existing financial structures, and business processes, the Network of Giving has found ways to link consumers, local merchants, charitable and community organizations, banks, payment networks, and other financial organizations into a dynamic ecosystem to create an entirely new way of supporting digital charitable giving. We at Veriday believe that this is an enormous untapped potential to change the world, and we are committed and focused on supporting the Network of Giving in their activities.

What are the benefits that the customers will see from the partnership?

We’ve been supporting the Network of Giving in the ground-breaking technology innovation area using leading-edge approaches and modernized thinking. It allows us to create a technology solution that can plug and play into the most complex financial services systems in the world. Taking the complexity of the service systems and delivering it simply into a marketplace in which any consumer can use the solution; to take a simple banking transaction, or a simple purchase, and direct that at a merchant while part of the proceeds go to support a charity of their choice.

From your perspective, what is special or innovative about the partnership?

What’s innovative and interesting about this partnership and what we’re trying to do is that we are taking something simple and something that is done every day, and using it as a catalyst for change to fuel and accomplish something bigger. Innovative, yet complex. Simple and elegant.

Liferay Announces a Platform for the Digital Enterprise

Liferay Digital Experience Platform helps improve customer experiences by bridging organizational silos and processes

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — (May 3, 2016) — Liferay, Inc., which makes software for enterprises, announced today the Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP), designed to help companies create and manage experiences that support the end-to-end customer relationship. With Liferay DXP, digital innovation leaders can enable every business unit in the enterprise to serve the customer consistently, by integrating deeply with business operations and building an understanding of the customer with every interaction.

“Businesses today are moving beyond a narrow focus on marketing to look at the whole experience of their customers,” said Edwin Chung, VP of Product Management for Liferay. “Liferay DXP helps companies present the right personalized experience for the moment: frustrated customers need help, not targeted offers, while a great service experience is an opportunity to upsell. By deeply integrating with the systems that support business units and processes, companies can act on customer sentiment and history to give customers the right resource or offer when they’re ready for it.”

A recent Forrester study* found that the No. 1 technical barrier facing digital experience leaders was inadequate integration with backend systems. Customers expect to have ready access to information locked in these systems, including order status, issues reported, profile information and a history of interactions. The brands that earn customer loyalties will be those that have all enterprise resources and departments available to help the customer. But while many CMS and DXP vendors use targeted content and offers to drive sales, they often fall short of nurturing the relationship with deeper interactions that tie into a company’s business operations.

With Liferay DXP, sales, marketing, support and service teams can truly work together for the customer. The Liferay platform assembles a comprehensive view of the customer from separate systems, uses that insight to improve customer interactions, and integrates those interactions to the company’s operations. Liferay DXP also enables partners and employees to interact with customers to influence sentiment and support the relationship.

Liferay DXP provides:

  • Flexible architecture for transformation: Liferay allows you to quickly implement digital strategy and adapt to new digital technologies with reusable microservices and integration with existing applications.
  • Experience management: Customer-facing business units that touch customers can design highly personalized experiences, from marketing campaigns to customer service processes, by targeting useful information, offers, and resources to user segments and individuals.
  • Single view of the customer: Liferay DXP creates a single customer profile aggregated from all of the customer’s interactions with the company, along with important data points such as customer sentiment, interests and significant conversions.
  • Engagement data: Improve customer experiences with access to engagement data such as video content views, click-throughs on targeted content, community activity and social metadata.
  • Support for innovative interfaces: DXP is designed to be used with modern UI and app frameworks favored by savvy front-end and mobile developers

For more information about the Liferay Digital Experience Platform, please visit liferay.com/digital-experience-platform.

Product Availability:

Liferay DXP will be available for purchase at the end of May 2016.
