Financial service organisations are under constant threat from online fraud and cyber-crime, as well as customer needs changing and evolving faster than businesses can often adapt. It’s a world in which the demand for being reactive and mobile has never been higher, so you need technology systems that can not only support your organisation’s requirements but also drive your capabilities forward through security and tailoring… you need Windows 10.

Windows 10 leads the way in game-changing security and customisation. It’s not just the Financial Services industry that believes it, even the Department of Defence have embraced Windows 10 due to its ‘immense security advances’.

At RedPixie we understand the complex nuances that exist in the Financial Services industry and we believe that you can’t afford not to upgrade to Windows 10. Take a look at the 5 main reasons.

1. Meet modern security threats head-on

Windows 10 is the most secure Windows product to date.

It has introduced huge advancements in security and identity protection but also maintained its flawless user experience. Windows 10 has been designed to combat the ever-changing world of cyber security as its priority. Using the latest in multi-factor authentication, you can rest assured that your information is safe and secure should the worst happen and your device is lost or stolen.

Windows 10 offers secure login options, such as biometrics and hardware based multi-factor credentials. Microsoft Passport and Windows Hello even allows users to log in to their Windows 10 devices securely without a password.


2. Meet and exceed your customer service expectations

Customer needs and expectations evolve in all industries but arguably none move and change as fast as financial services. It is therefore essential, that banks and other financial institutions are able to react to changing demands with speed and efficiency.

Windows 10 recognises this with its enhanced security and focus on creating a consistent user experience across the broadest spectrum of mobile and desktop devices, meaning that bank staff can have the freedom to provide client services on-the-go – keeping branches flowing smoothly. Screen sharing with clients allows financial advisors to really engage with customers – helping real decisions to be made in real-time.

Insurance agents can deliver more personal and interactive customer experiences with secure access to customer data at their fingertips. With one device they can capture images and data essential for adjustments whether they are on or offline.

3. Gives users a familiar, productive experience across all devices

Operating in highly-regulated environments doesn’t mean you have to miss out on benefitting from the latest tools - with Windows 10 you will be able to make better, informed decisions, empowering your customers and encouraging users to be productive from any location.

With one platform, Windows 10 provides that familiar experience with universal line of business (LoB) apps running across the broadest range of devices – from smartphones to laptops, desktops and tablets. Seamless solutions are in the palm of your hands with unprecedented customisation for every level from branch assistants to operations managers.


4. Choose your own pace of innovation

Windows 10 is the first ‘version-less’ release of Windows – meaning that you have complete flexibility to choose the rate of innovation that fits your business needs and the needs of your customers.

From locking down business critical environments to providing frequent updates to segmented user bases – Windows Update for Business and Current Branch gives you control over deployment, rapid security updates and feature enhancements, all while increasing the cost-efficiency of managing your IT.

5. Leverage the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) to transform customer lifetime value

Create new business models and transform operations at higher speeds with the revolutionary advances that the IoT brings to revolutionise how your organisation interacts with data and processes. Using Windows 10 and Microsoft Azure banks can customise alerts and communications to reflect trends in customers’ accounts, for example making saving suggestions based on spending patterns.

Windows 10 leads the way in game-changing security, innovation and customisation – this combination is prompting many financial services organisations to begin their move to Windows 10. Can your financial services business afford not to upgrade?
