Genesys, a global cloud provider in experience orchestration, announces the release of "The Challenge of Customer-Centric Banking," a research report conducted by FT Longitude and supported by Genesys. According to the report, financial institutions leading in delivering high-quality customer experiences are more successful at acquiring new customers, retaining talent and achieving their financial goals. It turns out that better customer experience strategies aren't just a boon for banks, but are associated with better business results.
Consumers have come to expect more from their experiences with organizations across every industry, and banks are no exception. According to the report, 61% of banking executives say expectations for customer experience are continuing to rise, and nearly half (45%) admit they are struggling to keep up. But in today's experience economy, banks can't risk missing those expectations. From attracting and retaining both customers and employees, to increasing brand reputation, to meeting financial goals, banks getting customer experience right are outpacing their competitors, proving that when it comes to people and business results, experience matters.
The window to evolve customer experience strategies and integrate the capabilities that can deliver those experiences accelerates as concerns of a recession increase. Nearly three-quarters (72%) of Customer Experience Leaders shared that personalized services become even more in demand during times of financial crisis, as consumers' financial worries grow. Unfortunately, half of banks reported being unprepared for the impact a recession would have on their customer service. And, with 60% of banks concerned that a downturn would halt their digital expansion, the urgency to evolve their strategies accelerates.
"With so much economic uncertainty, the ability to provide consumers personalized financial experiences has exponentially increased in importance," said Janelle Dieken, Senior Vice President at Genesys. "We already see the considerable impact great experiences are having on banks' business results. Those that are able to deliver the engagement their customers need, no matter the landscape, will significantly differentiate themselves. For their customers and their bottom line, investing in the future of customer experience isn't something banks can afford to miss out on."
Examining how banks approach customer experience, the study found Customer Experience Leaders have advanced their strategies by focusing on personalization and innovation and building trust, placing them ahead of their competitors in many aspects, including:
- Tailoring products and services to the real-time needs and life stages of their customers in higher rates (38% compared with 26%)
- More frequently matching advisors to the right customers (45% compared with 26%)
- Being twice as likely to be available on the channel customers want, when they want it (49% compared with 25%)
- Using individual data patterns to drive offers or experiences (39% compared with 24%)
Other highlighted findings from the report include:
The future of banking experiences means the redesign of physical banking locations. To provide richer experiences based on the needs of their customers, Customer Experience Leaders anticipate physical locations to be redesigned into financial strategy centers. This means fewer banking transactions and more coaching and financial advice personalized to the customer. Nearly half (44%) of banking executives see this as the greatest opportunity to transform the customer experience in the coming years.
When it comes to the banking customer experience, money isn't an issue — siloed data and low employee engagement are. Nearly two-thirds (64%) of respondents believe the biggest obstacle in providing consumers the experiences they expect are the internal silos that prevent integrated views of their journeys. Coming in second: high turnover and low engagement among customer-facing employees (48%). Lack of budget was the least concerning issue (6%).
Investing in technology that increases personalization is the most important priority for improving customer experience, but delivering on its promise has been complicated. With 72% of Customer Experience Leaders saying that more personalization leads to greater customer loyalty, it's not surprising that investing in new technologies that make personalization possible is seen as the most important step to improving customer experience in the coming years. Delivering experiences that feel genuine will be the differentiator: 54% believe consumers see their attempt at personalized services as generic. Ensuring the technology enables them to do so ethically and meet government regulations is equally at play, an obstacle for the personalization goals of 49% of banks.
"The Challenge of Customer-Centric Banking" is an FT Longitude report supported by Genesys. The insights shared here are based on a new survey of 600 banking executives across 21 countries globally.

Virtual Phone Numbers (DID) and Business VoIP Phone Service
Whether a customer is running a Call Center business, an IVR system to take phone orders or a voice mail service bureau, he still needs inbound lines and access numbers (DIDs). These lines and DIDs give customers the ability to call in and use the service. Traditionally, these lines and DIDs were obtained through the local telephone company (i.e. Verizon, AT&T or Time Warner) and a company could only purchase numbers with area codes in the region the system resided. With VoIP, this has changed.
DID Live is an IP DID service that allows you to accept incoming calls via VoIP as an alternative to standard digital or analog lines. The service provides the same quality of sound you expect from...
