  • CHANNELS are the vehicles through which customers can interact with a bank. These channels may be used for either sales or service interactions.

  • ENGINES – Banks offer a variety of products each of which requires a combination of back office staff and complex computer systems to set up and maintain. It is these systems, staff and processes that we refer to here as ‘Engines’.
  • MANAGEMENT INFORMATION is all about deriving information from a Bank’s other activities.
  • GATEWAYS TO THE BANKING INDUSTRY – There are a number of services that Bank’s provide co-operatively.
