Just like Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan took an honest look at South Africa’s financial health during his Medium Term Budget Speech, so should you. So says South Africa’s fastest growing retail bank for individuals, Capitec Bank. Their head of strategic communications Charl Nel shared P.G’s top ten tips from the 2012 budget, and here’s how partnering with Avision makes sense …
Tip #2 – Cut the waste and share responsibility: P.G. is pretty clear that getting through the financial year, unscathed, is everyone’s responsibility, not just Government’s. Hear hear! Take heed of this advice and ask your family to help you bust your household budget in 2013. Ask everyone to turn off the lights when not in their room to save electricity, or swap clothes with friends to get a new ‘do’ instead of rushing to the mall for a new outfit. A lot of little things could make a big difference. Besides, your family may find the challenge of cutting the fat fun!
What he doesn’t mention is how Capitec lives up to cutting waste and making life easier for its customers as part of the bank’s philosophy Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. In their drive to go paperless Capitec recently empowered their entire retail banking network with AVISION FB1200+ slimline scanners.
The business case was simple and clear: to reduce waste of time, space and cost; to speed up and improve customer sign on experience; to eliminate unneccessary human error in data capture; to provide access to customer account data 24/7/365 from anywhere ensuring a seamless and effortless means of record keeping. Not only is digitising its customer data an innovative and necessary strategy for a fast growing banking brand, it’s also a demonstration of their commitment to a sustainable environment for future generations and a better living for all. More so – it is the right thing to do to cut office costs and wastage. Who wants to see their margins crumpled up in a wastepaper basket?
Imagine how much money you can save by switching off the lights, stop printing, copying and faxing and stop using paper. Increasing profitability has never been this easy!
