A new Impact Report by Aite Group examines current market trends and how financial institutions are addressing new onboarding challenges.

Providing a smooth customer experience during the onboarding process is important for a wide range of businesses. For financial services institutions in particular, it’s a critical process in the customer life cycle, as it sets the tone for the rest of the customer relationship. Delivering a positive account opening experience to customers makes it easier to maximize revenue opportunities in the long term.

For most customers, it all starts with opening a checking account, which remains the cornerstone of the banking relationship. Consumers are now very comfortable with accessing their financial information and their account(s) using multiple devices and channels.

Based on a 2015 survey of more than 2,000 U.S. consumers, this is a must-read report for executives, vendors, and security professionals across the banking industry.
