How M2M and the Internet of Things are Reinventing Banking

As more and more financial institutions adopt machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, they are quickly realizing how M2M and, more importantly, the Internet of Things (IoT) can help streamline infrastructure, deepen customer engagement and improve delivery capabilities.

The banking industry’s biggest challenge is its need to catch up with early adopters that moved forward with IoT applications in shopping, loyalty programs, car buying and peer-to-peer payments during the aftermath of the global financial crisis. Thirteen percent of banks are currently implementing a M2M solution, which means there’s plenty of room for improvement, according the “Internet of Things in Banking” study conducted for Verizon by American Banker and SourceMedia Research, August 2014.
