What's FinovateFocus Roundtable?

Future focus areas

Here are the focus areas that are coming up next:


Customer Experience – February 25 (Check!)
Customer Experience – February 25 (Check!)

Our first FinovateFocus will center around User Experience in banking and finance. A strong user experience starts with the very first marketing message, continues through the account opening process, and culminates in the ongoing service a customer receives. With so many different channels to keep track of (online, mobile, call-center, chatbot, in-branch, and more), it’s no wonder it’s so challenging to ensure a seamless delivery.
