Losing Digital Customers Jeopardizes Your Future

2024-01-25T14:27:06-05:00January 25th, 2024|

Do you make it convenient for customers and non-customers to send documents to you securely? Most Financial Institutions think they do and give themselves an “A.” Yet when those same processes are graded from the digital consumer’s perspective, they get an “F.”

Is Your Bank Good Sticky … or Bad Sticky?

2023-07-10T12:14:07-04:00January 7th, 2023|

By Ron Daly

Newton’s Third Law says that for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. But while he’s talking physics, I’m thinking customer retention. All good things seem to have a bad side, and for banks, stickiness is near the top of the list.
