Mangalore Today News Network

Mangalore, Jan 31, 2015: “Today’s banking is technology driven and digital banking is poised to take the banking experience to a new high in the years to come. The need of the hour is therefore to create innovative alternate delivery channels to suit the changing preferences of Bank’s clientele and more importantly to popularize such alternate delivery channels amongst the customers and the general public. This will help the Bank to improve customer satisfaction as well as the operational efficiency. Being one of the early adopters of Core Banking Solution [CBS], Karnataka Bank is in the forefront of this technological revolution, and Bank should fully encash the opportunity to reach out to all potential clients. At the same time, credit augmentation and monitoring, NPA management and CASA shall also continue to be our prime focus areas in the ensuing months”, said P. Jayarama Bhat, MD & CEO of the Karnataka Bank while addressing Regional Heads during Q3 Business Review Conference of Regional Heads held on Saturday, Jan 31, at the Bank’s Head quarters at Mangaluru.
