Italian bank Widiba launched Widiba Home, a virtual reality bank that features full financial functionality. The new app-based virtual reality experience bridges the gap between inconvenient in-person banking and impersonal online banking, allowing customer service representatives to add a human touch to digital banking. Using Widiba Home, customers can move around the virtual bank, perform common banking transactions, and talk to their financial advisor directly.
Widiba Home marks a step forward in the archaic banking system. The virtual reality environment enables customers to quickly access key banking information without having to ask an advisor. This process not only saves time but cuts down on things like paper waste as well. The Teneo voice recognition system allows customers to state their needs directly to the app and be directed by a conversational AI. In the future, applications like Widiba Home could offer valuable services to remote communities where physical bank branches are unrealistic.
