2020 was quite a year. Learning to pivot became a mantra for businesses and individuals alike, and many of us are looking forward to the year ahead in hopes it will bring a return to normalcy. But what will our normal look like in the wake of COVID-19?
If there’s one thing 2020 taught us, it’s that we can adapt to change. We found innovative ways to reimagine our daily lives, pushing forward and staying resilient. As we move ahead into the new year, we’re realizing that many of our innovative solutions made things easier than they were before, and we will carry them forward as a new normal in the days ahead.
In traditional office environments, the future of work has been redefined. Many employers are embracing the benefits of work from home, as digital resources are transforming daily operations. Business as usual is becoming a thing of the past and for many, that’s a net positive - companies are running more efficiently and employees are enjoying greater flexibility in their workday.
During the height of the pandemic, changes in consumer habits shifted out of necessity. Individuals who were once limited in their online experiences have learned to comfortably navigate an array of online activities, with many now preferring digital experiences over in-person transactions.
Consumers who were already online savvy have deepened their appreciation for digital resources. Apps, alerts and customizable online features are in greater demand than ever as customers embrace their benefits. Even as businesses reopen and in-person interactions eventually become more accessible, many customers are unlikely to abandon the convenience of digital solutions and revert to old habits.
At Origin Bank, we know how important it is to respond to the changing needs of our customers. That’s why we’re proud to offer a vast array of online banking services so you can have the flexibility to bank with ease from anywhere.
We offer tools like the Origin mobile banking app which turns your mobile phone into your own personal banking center. With mobile banking, you can make deposits from anywhere, check your account balances, pay your bills and even transfer funds from one account to another.
We also offer Zelle, a simple and easy resource that can be used to request money, send funds or split expenses among several people, right from your mobile phone.
And if you’re looking to take more control of your finances, check out the Origin Personal Financial Management Tool, designed to take the stress out of managing your money. Free to Origin Bank customers, this resource helps you set a budget, track where you’re spending your money and manage your debt with auto-payments and transfers made easy.
The Origin Bank website has these resources and more. You can also get help with your account and service questions day or night by calling (888) 292-4037, or you can connect with a customer service expert through Live Chat on our website during normal business hours, 8am - 5pm CST.
As we enter into the new year, we recognize that things may look a little different than they did before. One thing that never changes is Origin Bank’s commitment to you, our valued customers. Whatever is ahead of us in 2021, we are here for you every step of the way.
