Banking
“It’s time to think about banking as an electronic structure. It’s time to bite the bullet and admit that retail banking is not a physical distribution structure with electronic channels on top, but an electronic distribution structure with electronic and physical channels on top. It’s time to become the Digital Bank.”
From Chris Skinner’s book “The Digital Bank”

- How will people relate with each other in the future? We must redesign and rethink how the relationship and services of financial institutions will be with their customers via mobile devices.
- How can financial institutions give value to the information, often unstructured, that they have by taking advantage of the Big Data movement through mobile applications?
- How can value generation be stimulated through mobile applications between the client community and the financial institutions? Value for the institution and/or for the customer.
- Which are the mobile applications that will allow comercial managers of financial institutions increase their productivity, both in terms of efficiency and effectiveness.

 

Tourism
Bringing hotels and Barcelona citizens closer: create a project that improves the performance of the hotel facilities so that Barcelona citizens can take advantage of them and this way establishing links with recurring customers. This would promote the use and understanding of unique spaces the use of these and would also stimulate new ways of leisure and city services.
- How to get customers of the hotel to interact with the property without overwhelming the reception. Via an outmatic check-in / check-out the customer could choose the roomer they wanted, etc. Create a similar service as those that can be found when buying a plain ticket but for the hotel experience.
