Great Things Come in Small Packages

Great Things Come in Small Packages

We thought we'd kick off the season of giving with some great examples of how you can have an amazing full-service branch with a small footprint. The Micro Branch has been on the radar of most banking executives this year and it doesn't seem to be slowing down as we look into 2020. If you are trying to optimize your branch network, looking to provide convenience to your clients, or need to find cost-effective ways to expand—a Micro Branch should be at the top of your Christmas list. 

Skip the lines and start your Micro Branch project today with a 30-minute strategy session with one of our experts.

Schedule 1:1 Strategy Session


The Extending Service Spot 

It's an innovative twist on the micro branch built for maximum efficiency. Designed with an open-concept workstation, conference room, and digital discovery bar, this micro branch is a perfect fit for a busy location with varying needs. The workstation can be extended to serve clients when the branch is less crowded or tucked away when the branch is buzzing with clients.

The Branch on the Wall 

This truly micro version of the branch clocks in at just 130 square feet. It is placed on an existing wall of a high-traffic location such as a mall or corporate center. This branch, although it is small, is still capable of hosting basic client interactions using a private and enclosed Service Spot. The sleek design and eye-catching digital signage make this option perfect for the bargain hunter looking to make the most out of an existing space.

The Side-Bar Branch 

Located on university campus, this micro branch is built for utility and focused on 1:1 interactions. The inviting design attracts the modern client to easily see the convenience of banking with financial institution that is focused on meeting them right where they are. Even in the centralized location this branch still offers plenty of privacy. Here, clients feel secure and welcomed.

Harry Potter's Dream Branch 

Strategically placed inside a staircase corridor inside a United  Health Group Corporate office, this needed to be small enough to fit inside a staircase corridor of a United Health Group (UHG) corporate office building, while still offering a full-service branch model that only required two full-time employees to serve the 2,200 UHG employees.

No wizards were evicted in the building of this micro branch.
