If you've been looking for a new bank because your current bank has gone to video banking, you should reconsider. While it might seem odd, and somewhat impersonal do conduct your banking through a video screen, there are actually quite a few benefits to the process. Before you jump ship in favor of live tellers, take a look at three of the benefits video banking will offer you.

Access to Longer Banking Hours

If you work long hours, it can be difficult to get to the bank while they're open. Even if your branch is open on the weekends, they may not have the extended hours that you need. Unfortunately, that leaves you without access to banking when you need it. However, if your bank has switched to video banking, you'll have access to tellers when you need them the most, including early mornings, late evenings, and even on the weekends. That means you'll never again need to leave work early just to get to the bank.

More Efficient Use of Your Time

There's nothing worse than waiting in line for the next teller when the person at the window has serious issues. It's even worse when the bank is crowded and there's only one teller working. That leaves you stuck in line waiting for assistance when you could be doing something much more productive. With video banking capabilities, you won't need to wait in line for that one teller any more. That's because video banking allows for a greater number of kiosks to be up and running at any given time.

Lets You Take Care of All Your Banking

ATM machines are great, but they have very limited banking capabilities. Not only that, but if you run into problems while you're at an ATM, you have to go into the bank to resolve the issue. That can be a real problem if you run into issues after normal banking hours. With video banking, you'll be able to take care of all your banking needs, including the resolution of those after-hours problems. No more stressing over the issue all night long, or all weekend long, when you can hop on the video banking monitor and get a resolution to your problem while you're standing there.

If your bank has recently introduced video banking, don't close your account. Take advantage of the many benefits that video banking has to offer you. If your bank hasn't introduced video banking yet, talk to them about setting it up.
