Modern Contact Centers Improve the Customer Experience and Support Omnichannel Banking Strategy
Research from Mercator Advisory Group examines the critical role that modern banking contact centers play in today’s 24×7 banking environment
Published on: March 18, 2015 Author: Ed O'Brien Alternate Point of Contact: Amy Dunckelmann
Banking contact centers have evolved beyond basic telephone-based call centers to more sales- and service-focused centers that support 24×7 interaction with customers across banking channels and lines of business. Today’s contact center is central to the movement toward omnichannel banking, and promises heightened levels of customer satisfaction.
In this research note, Contact Centers: A Critical Component for Customer Satisfaction in Banking, Mercator Advisory Group reviews the opportunities and challenges for banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions in transitioning their monochannel call centers to omnichannel contact centers. Mercator Advisory Group survey data is presented as evidence of U.S. adults’ willingness to try new methods of communication with financial institutions. The research note discusses staff training requirements and some examples of contact center technology solutions from vendors.
“Following a strategy used to assess branch efficiency and improve performance, financial institutions are reviewing and reconfiguring their call and contact centers to include capabilities beyond basic functions like providing account balances and handling complaints. Today’s contact centers represent assets that can be leveraged as a critical component of the move to omnichannel banking,” comments Ed O’Brien, director of Mercator Advisory Group’s Banking Channels Advisory Service and author of the research note.
