It has been long ago, when bank card was seen as exotica in Russia. Today every citizen has on the average some cards, and there are a lot of ATM-machines in places which are visited by lots of people daily. The functionality of card was extended. Firstly, there were just salary projects for using of plastic cards. All the money was taken from nearly that day when it was payed, because people did not trust in security of bank cards and were afraid of old models of ATM-machines (they were too unreliable). Nowadays there are plastic cards with a lot of functions. People are able to receive and cancel a credit, accumulate bonuses for the flight, take back part of money for sales.
How do banks could improve their plastic cards? Which are they now? What can be improved in plastic cards at present times? Where can it be developed further?
Alexey Krukovsky, Head of Partner Work Department of ALIOTH company, has answered some questions of the journal:
- At the dawn of card business banks issued cards for salary projects generally. Are there some changes in this? Are there more clients who use cards?
- Which kinds of bank cards – calculated, credit or multifunctional – are the most popular among clients now? How do you think why?
- Plastic card business is based on developed infrastructure – ATM machines, POS-terminals. Consumers very often can see that this equipment is out of functioning or absent, also this equipment can provide limited functionality and etc. Does it happen because this is too expensive to maintain such a network for banks? Does liberalization occur in this shere?
- Has the clients’ attitude to plastic cards changed? What educative measures make the bank by itself? What measures, from your point of view, are needed to take by state?
- Attitude to plastic cards is changed on points of sales and services side? How can you assess the competition in this market sector? Which opportunities do banks have for achieving positive changes? How state can provide support?
