OUR SERVICES

BRANCH TRANSFORMATIONS

Advances in banking technology have changed customer expectations, foot traffic, and branch staffing. As a result, existing branches can appear abandoned and lifeless, with empty teller stations, unmanned desks, and static interiors that often turn customers away, toward more dynamic competitors.

From incorporating the latest self-service automation technologies to designing engaging, and uniquely branded retail spaces, Eclipse’s team of professionals is ready to re-energize your existing branches with...

  • Interactive features to engage your customers and promote your products
  • Self-service technologies to help maximize service availability at all times
  • A small (and economical) footprint plan with flexible interior and exterior styling options to fit your brand
  • Workstations for 4 to 6 employees, providing privacy while encouraging interaction

THE BRANCH OF THE FUTURE: THE ECLIPSE SMART BRANCH

Now more than ever, branches need to be smarter, more engaging and, most importantly, more profitable – like the Eclipse Smart Branch.

The Smart Branch offers…

  • The latest in retail philosophies and technologies
  • An engaging customer experience with two interactive lobby centers, waiting areas and digital signage throughout
  • Flexible service areas to allow for future services and technologies
  • Unique and inspiring interiors with custom finishes, fixtures, signage and more
