Online Banking Solution Review: It’s All in the Eyes of the Beholder

Research reviews the functionality and capabilities of leading online banking solutions and picks the winners

Boston, MA -- Mercator Advisory Group has released the “US Consumer Online Banking Solution Review: It’s All in the Eyes of the Beholder” research report which reviews the functionality of the leading online banking solutions and identifies the market leading systems.

The thirteen solutions reviewed serve over 50% of the banks and credit unions in the U.S. and more than 80% of the institutions with over $500 million in assets. The ten vendors participating include the leading core banking vendors as well as delivery channel and online banking specialty vendors.

“Online banking adoption continues to grow and someday will challenge the branch for the title of preferred channel,” said Bob Landry, Vice President, Mercator Advisory Group’s Banking Group. “In light of the revenue challenges brought on by debt avoiding consumers and revenue losses due to harsh new financial reform regulations, bankers need to do whatever they can to move more of their sales and service interactions to the low cost online banking channel. All of the solutions reviewed in this report provide a strong foundation for reliable service and cost reduction. This report identifies those solutions that stand above the rest by offering an innovative and flexible platform that can support institutions that want to manage their online banking solution as a competitive weapon rather than a low cost delivery channel.”

Highlights of US Consumer “Online Banking Solution Review: It’s All in the Eyes of the Beholder” report includes:
