​​Building Societies Need to Embrace Digital Banking Services to Build Brand Trust and Future Success, Unisys to Tell Senior Building Society Leaders

​Unisys to present at the Building Societies Annual Conference 2019 to talk about the future of the industry and open banking

LONDON and BLUE BELL, Pa., May 22, 2019 - Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced it will present at Building Societies Annual Conference to discuss how building societies can embrace digital services to gain a real and sustainable advantage in today's fast-moving, competitive banking landscape.

At the main conference on May 24, Adam Oldfield, vice president for Unisys Financial Services in EMEA, will present on a keynote panel on how building societies can capitalize on the market disruption from digital technologies and take advantage of opportunities presented by open banking. The discussion will tackle how financial institutions can create trust in the digital age and use this to strengthen the service they already offer to customers.

"Building societies need to realize that, looking beyond interest rates, digital capabilities are proving the most important deciding factors to customers when considering opening new saving accounts," commented Oldfield. "At the Building Societies Annual Conference, we'll be revealing the findings of Unisys' own research into customer demands. The research uncovers the critical factors that can make digitalization a success and highlights what diversification opportunities are out there for institutions that invest in digital services."

Unisys helps financial institutions achieve digitalization with Elevate™, an end-to-end, digital banking software platform and suite of applications designed to help them deliver an instantly secure, omnichannel banking experience to their customers.
