Your financial institution has access to so much customer information, but unless you can use this intelligence quickly and effectively, all that data is rendered useless. You must leverage the enormous amount of existing user data your brand has stored and is constantly receiving. This will enable you to create user experiences that are much more personalized than those created by technology companies that count merely on web traffic activity on known users, for instance.
Being a customer-centric financial institution requires the anticipation of future needs – looking at behavioral patterns, market trends and user experiences for proactive measures to secure a personalized, unique and memorable experience across multiple channels. This, in turn, enables the customer to feel understood and valued, and more likely to develop a loyalty that will be a good basis for customer retention, up-selling and cross-selling.
Data-driven technology creates true business value because it provides you with actionable tasks in real-time, that are scaled for the enterprise, and remove human subjectivity via machine learning. Machine learning encompasses the algorithms, optimization and learning tools that interact with the data, thereby eliminating any manual interaction/intervention between the data being generated, and the messages and offers being delivered to the customers.
The key to delivering superior customer experiences is to contextualize the data, and get personal – to understand your customers at the individual-level so you can interact with the proper messages and offers that are pertinent to them, via the right channel, at the right time. When you do that, you are truly customer-centric.
