Crunching Numbers

“Rapid Change Not Fast Enough in Mobile Banking” declared a recent headline in American Banking.[1]It’s true; mobile banking is evolving faster than you can say “ka-ching” – and customers expect nothing less than the best.

How do you give your customers exceptional mobile banking while keeping up with the industry’s rapid pace? The answer lies in having the right metrics in place. This crucial information allows you to understand and optimize the user experience – while also quantifying the success of your mobile banking efforts.

Forrester’s recent Mobile Banking Playbook highlighted key metrics areas that mobile banking teams should be focusing on:

Awareness | Do your customers even know that mobile banking is an option? Beyond that, are they aware of all the special features and conveniences that mobile banking offers?

Adoption | What percentage of your customers are active mobile users? What devices are they using?

Use | How, and how frequently, are customers using your mobile features and services?

Experience | Does your mobile banking offering meet your customers’ needs? Does it meet the customer experience trifecta: easy, enjoyable, and useful?

Impact | How is mobile banking affecting your bottom line? Has mobile banking changed customer behavior?

Identifying these metrics is one thing. Acquiring them is a whole other matter. The complexity of mobile coupled with the rush to roll out features creates a formidable barrier. Luckily, Crittercism is here to help. Here are just a few ways that we hand crucial metrics to you on a (virtual) silver platter:
