Imagine, lately, you visited a bank to enquire about a mortgage. You get a stack of paper to fill in your personal and financial details. As you seem to climb the ladder in the process, there are multiple disconnected departments, and all you do is dodge from one department to another. You thought of getting help from the customer representative. But land with another set of forms to initiate the conversation as they lacked your basics. But your process didn’t end here. You find yourself waiting in long queues. Finally, when you reach your destination, you are frustrated seeing your bank unaware of your financial history and preferences.
Somehow, you submit your application. But when you try checking your application status, you get a walk through the same story again. How did you feel about your entire mortgage journey? Frustrating, right? Just take a moment to understand how your customers might have felt about your banking processes.
