Efficiency is the Name of the Game Digital transformation: two words that have taken over the financial services industry and completely changed the way banks and credit unions operate. Noted as a top priority for many executives, investing in such technology is often understood to be a benefit for their institution. It’s commonly believed that ‘digital transformation’ narrowly means offering digital tools to customers and members, and while this is likely a component of your larger effort, the scope and benefits reach much wider. Typically when introducing a new solution or process, it’s thought about in relation to customers and members – how will ...

In my last blog of this series, Automating Your Customer Ordering and Fulfillment Process: Low-Hanging Fruit Volume I , I focused on Digitizing Core Organizational Processes by leveraging Intelligent Document Capture solutions to remove paper processes from your business. I initially planned for the next blog in the series to address strategies around no-code/low-code workflows and automating compliance and governance. Instead, I decided that addressing the use of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to accelerate hyperautomation/digital transformation was a bigger priority. Keep an eye out for more information on no-code/low-code in volume III. Zia Consulting ...

Staffing difficulties are forcing organizations of all industries to be more efficient with technology and to enhance their automation capabilities. Banks and credit unions are no strangers to this challenge, layered with the shift in more customers and members banking remotely as a result of the pandemic. These account holders seek deep, meaningful engagements, wanting their banking needs met with the same friendly, familiar service they know, regardless of where, when, or how they transact. Although digital transformation isn’t new, meeting the market demand of 24/7/365-access with personalized service shines a new light on priorities, blending user-facing ...

This blog post, written by lead counsel Will Fletcher, originally appeared on Zasio.com Privacy is a crucial part of records and information management. Privacy, however, can be a puzzling topic to approach. Formal RIM texts frequently contain little privacy. And a RIM professional’s first experience many times involves jumping headlong into some involved issues, and without much exposure to the foundations. This can be like being handed a pair of scrubs and pulled into the operating room without completing a surgical residency, let alone medical school. In the U.S., federal privacy laws are a potpourri of requirements that apply based on the market sector, ...

It’s critical that the process automation solutions you invest in make positive impacts with your employees, but also keep your institution competitive with market disrupters. If a strong ...

By Jared Walker, JD, -- Zasio Since Zasio's previous post discussing plans for the European Union-U.S. Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework, the United States has taken a significant step toward setting this new framework into action. On Oct. 7, 2022, President Joe Biden signed an “ Executive Order on Enhancing Safeguards for United States Signals Intelligence Activities ,” which lays out steps the U.S. will take to implement its commitments under the new framework. It was the U.S.’s signals intelligence activities and a lack of adequate safeguards in place to protect personal data involved in such activities, after all, that led to the European Court ...

Before I was hired, I knew that the iText PDF SDK had been around for over 20 years but I was unaware of just how widespread its usage was. However, after attending our customer event “Shake It, Make It” I had a much better understanding of why we have more than 125 million users worldwide, spread across almost every industry. After getting to see Michaël Demey demonstrate how developers use the iText PDF library to generate PDF documents in the previous session , I was excited to watch Israel Garcia and Pavel Chermyanin show off iText’s collaborative solutions for document generation and data extraction: iText DITO and iText pdf2Data ...
