London (PRWEB UK) 15 October 2014
FC Business Intelligence has recently published a complimentary 17-page white paper ‘The Customer Finally Comes First in Retail Financial Services’ that focuses on the fundamental role data and analytics currently play for the retail financial services industry.
Based on The State of Customer Analytics & Insights in Retail Financial Services, 2015 Survey results which feature in the white paper, over 76% of retail financial professionals feel that their organisation will increase their investment in the area of analytics over the next 12 months. Another 83% say that they are already seeing some returns from the changes that they have made to their business
The majority of those surveyed believe that using analytics to create an omni-channel experience for the customer is the key object to improving the customer experience. However, only 7% feel that these changes mean that they are doing well to improve the customer experience; while, 87% said that improving the customer experience is the number one priority for their organisation in 2014/2015.
The white paper explores what this transition phase means as retail banks, building societies, credit unions, general insurers and alternative lenders square up to customer-centric demands over product centric sales strategies.
As 53% of retail finance professionals surveyed feel that analytics is important across the entire business, the white paper also looks at its functionality as business units redirect their focus.
