For the past decade, financial institutions have created sophisticated digital platforms for consumers to access, save, share and interact with their financial accounts. As sophisticated as these digital platforms have become, cyber criminals continue to pose an ever-present risk for everyone – from individual consumers to large corporations. In his recent article, 2018 Outlook: Customer Experience and Security Strike a Balance, Andrew Davies, vice president of global market strategy for Fiserv’s Financial Crime Risk Management division, explains how and why security will become a key differentiator for financial institutions as they respond to a changing landscape, which includes: • Global payment initiatives • Open Banking standards • Artificial intelligence and machine learning • Consumer demand for real-time fraud prevention and detection

Today’s consumers are more informed, diverse, demanding and well-connected than ever before. With nearly unrestricted access to shopping resources used for discovery, comparison, and purchase, consumers are able to shop at will, often independent of branded retailer guidance. This rise of consumer independence can be attributed to the emergence of technological advancements favoring consumer empowerment; however, the repeated failures of brands to proactively offer personalized, high-value shopping experiences at scale is a significant contributing factor of consumer exodus. This has fostered an inclination among shoppers to become self-reliant in their pursuit of purchases, effectively shutting out promotional outreach from brands. Many brands continue to fall out of touch with their customers because they’ve lost sight of their customers’ true needs. Customer centricity has long been the foundation for modern marketing, but the brands which fail at creating deeply personalized market

The headwinds facing traditional and online retailers in 2017 are numerous and well documented. Chief among the challenges: a sustained assault on established business models driven by changing consumer behavior and the competitive might of e-commerce giant Amazon. Large big-box players, such as Walmart and Target, are responding to the threat - and embracing the opportunity of e-commerce - by boosting online spending by hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars annually. Yet even the largest and most well-resourced players can’t simply spend their way to success. Competing with Amazon and adjusting to the changing demands of consumers means taking a hard look at the engines driving e-commerce and digital marketing operations, scouring for missed opportunities, and investing in the technologies that will fuel the innovations of tomorrow.

Today’s consumers are demanding: they have become more unforgiving of a poor customer experience and expect interactions on their desktop and mobile devices to be responsive, intuitive, and easy to use. Marketers understand that delivering the most relevant experience is the key to gaining continued satisfaction and loyalty from their digital consumers. Oftentimes, however, when it comes to marketing to consumers there are two dynamics. On one hand you have what consumers say they want out of a customer experience. On the other hand, there is what they actually receive. What they want are experiences that are personalized, contextually relevant, and consistent— regardless of online or offline channel or lifecycle stage. What they too often get, however, are experiences that are disconnected, not contextually relevant, and inconsistent across channels and lifecycle stages.

As a manufacturer, you know the industry is changing. You’re expected to produce more, work faster and leaner, and find ways to make new products like those comprising the Internet of Things (IoT). Customer and employee expectations are also changing rapidly because our experiences as consumers shape our demands for business. As many factory employees are approaching retirement, a new generation is joining the workforce—a generation that wants the business systems they interact with to be as intuitive as those they use in all other areas of their life.

Consumers have witnessed unprecedented socioeconomic, political and technological change in the past 30 years. Shifts in behavior and demand have opened up new markets, while existing ones have expanded their offerings, triggering an avalanche of products and services. Ecommerce has emerged as a by-product of consumerism; the digital marketplace has freed both consumers and merchants from the restraints of proximity. This has resulted in spiraling growth. Marketing in 2018 is unrecognizable to the marketing of the 1980s. Back then there were only a few communication channels available, whereas now there are a myriad of options. Thanks to the digital revolution, the shopfront now sits on the consumer’s coffee table. Brands now cater for empowered customers, and as such, it’s become tougher for marketers to know where to allocate their budget and how to keep their message consistent.

With the digitization of modern life, consumers have come to expect the same kind of real-time response and control from mortgage companies as they have experienced in other aspects of their lives. As a result of pervasive services like two-day or even same-day delivery from Amazon Prime, TV On Demand and made-to-order Nikes, consumers expect underwriters to process loans and communicate with them in a similarly personalized, real-time way. In response, traditional mortgage originators are transitioning legacy processes to compete with the game-changing speed of born digital disruptors like Rocket Mortgage and Better.com. This infographic outlines the eight technology trends that are top-of-mind for leading lenders.

In today’s era of immediacy, consumers are more demanding than ever. To keep up with customer expectations, brands are starting to invest in Voice of the Customer (VoC) programs that employ a closed-loop process. Ask any CX, research, or marketing executive, and they will tell you that gone are the days when the customer marketing landscape was represented by a one-way dialogue for engaging prospects. Today, market leaders are shifting their listening and response mechanisms faster as VoC programs represent a huge opportunity for driving loyalty and increased sales. A recent study sponsored by American Express®—the American Express Global Customer Service Barometer—showed that U.S. consumers are twice as likely to tell others about a bad service than they are to share about a positive experience.¹

It's hard to believe, but some enterprises still use custom-coded Web content management (WCM)solutions. However, consumer demands have forced firms to shift from just managing and publishing Web sites to the daunting complexities of multichannel customer engagement, and it has becomeuntenable to build and maintain the required tools. With few exceptions, any firm with a custom-coded WCM platform should begin transitioning to a commercial or open source solution.
