From nice-to-have to necessity : The role of personalization in banking

Personalization for Banking Industries

Over 79% of U.S. consumers perceive their relationship with banks as purely transactional. And banks across the country are striving to change that equation.

Technology innovators entering the financial landscape and changing consumer expectations have changed the complexion of the banking industry.

There was a time when customers didn’t find any other redeeming economic value in depositing their cash into bank lockers than secure and easy money withdrawals. But in this digital age, consumers expect services and personalization from banks on par with other industries, like travel and retail. This swift change in customer trends is enticing tech giants like Amazon and Apple into banking services, which has the competition on a slippery slope.

The time is ripe for disruption

Today, banks are struggling to achieve a customer-centric approach for their services. According to a report, in the USA alone, over 49% of banks are still using outdated technology, and 48% are heavily siloed. This leads to the inability of banking executives to get a 360-degree view of customer history. Banks need to invest in their internal work processes and database management systems to deliver consistently. A CX-focused digital transformation has become a necessity for over 70% of banks to withstand the competition in the market.
