CustomerMonitor Survey Series

The CustomerMonitor Survey Series delivers a method to monitor critical changes in customer attitudes and behaviors toward payment products and channel usage that shift with changing economic times, channel usage (mobile device use, Internet use, etc.) and with differing product and service offerings (for example: the use of loyalty programs, prepaid offerings, etc.).

Mercator Advisory Group draws upon our broad industry expertise, clients and extensive research capabilities to develop highly topical and relevant questions that impact payments and channel delivery business strategy. It is Mercator Advisory Group’s experience base to answer strategic issues, its consistency of tracking year-over-year trends, and the flexibility working with our members to have public and/or private questions addressed, that differentiate this offering from other survey-based products.

Further, this catalog of primary survey results is offered an exceptional value due to Mercator’s business model that permits access to the full catalog of previous years’ surveys for all users throughout the year of service. Mercator has designed this program to be a continuous series of surveys that are fielded to monitor the shifts in behavior.
