As small business online migration accelerates, digital account opening can play a critical role in driving high-value new growth. Successful financial institutions will capitalize by delivering a consultative and engaging user experience that is tailored to smaller firms’ specific needs, while also driving new levels of intelligence, scalability and efficiency through integration and automation.

Facing immense pressure in 2020, small businesses have demanded unprecedented support and guidance while accelerating their adoption of digital technologies.
