Customers are evolving. They are evolving in the way they get information about products, what goes into making their purchase decision and ultimately how they buy.

In the past, companies have been able to adopt and utilize a business-as-usual IT infrastructure and get away with it. They purchased hardware to keep pace with data growth, managed multiple servers, and hired an ever-increasing workforce to ensure their organization succeeded.

Financial services customers are increasingly going digital, but human assistance continues to play a pivotal role — especially in the purchase journey — and many banks still only allow customers to get this assistance over the phone or in a branch.

The traditional view of online transactions is anchored on the idea that online stores are first and foremost a venue for transactions, which, by and large, tend to be tightly structured interactions involving the buyer and the retailer. Within this interaction, the retailer’s key job is to provide customers with the information they need to purchase–such as pricing, product descriptions and orderly merchandising–and to deliver all within the context of a superior customer experience. However, the way customers are seeking and processing this information is beginning to change, and that’s expected to have a big impact on tomorrow’s online experience.
