About The Report
The report, Digital Banking: Improvements Needed to Compete with Fintech, reveals that security issues are U.S. consumers’ primary reason for not making mobile banking transactions. Nevertheless, more consumers perform more banking activities online and by mobile, especially by smartphone, engaging more often with their financial institution, expanding and deepening the banking relationship and thereby becoming more loyal customers.
The report highlights trends in use of online banking via computer and mobile platforms, communication methods with financial institutions, use of personal financial management (PFM) tools, alerts, online bill-payment methods and electronic billing, person-to-person (P2P) money transfers, and the demographics of recent account openers. The study evaluates the account opening process online, use of mobile banking app compared to online banking by computer and mobile devices, U.S. consumers’ preferences of platform for making bank transactions, and their use and interest in voice-activated conversational interfaces.
