Traditionally, banks have owned end-to-end service delivery by tightly integrating experience, processes and products. However, this approach is under attack from all sides. Consumer-centric, born-digital fintech firms are competing directly for customers by providing superior user experiences, enabled by accessing application services and data across financial services providers.
How did some of the world’s best-known brands reinvent themselves by understanding the customers? How can companies apply more in-depth insights to design and leverage future customer journeys? It’s all about looking beyond what people say to understand what they truly think – and the intersection between humans and tech is where the magic happens.
What if you could find your customer’s silent triggers, the ones that aren’t visible through analysis of vast amounts of data? When combining thin data (Big data) and thick data (the human context), you get insights with greater clarity, certainty and actionability – and can create an offering that really matters to your end-customers.
Succeeding in the digital economy means balancing new technologies with a deep understanding of human wants and needs.
