1. How Online Banking UX Design Should Work

78% of the time that customers spend on offline banking services is wasted. As a customer, why would I choose to drive somewhere and wait in line to do my banking? Actually, I wouldn’t! If I could easily complete my banking transactions through online banking, I would choose online banking every time. My time is too valuable to waste, and online banking can be done from the comfort of my home or while I am on the go. In theory. Practically, it isn’t quite that easy. Every time I want to view my payment history, I can’t find it easily. Navigating through the 24 sections of my account dashboard is frustrating, confusing, and frankly, feels like a waste of my time.

What about you? Are you happy with your digital banking experience?

And who of us has not dreamed of a time machine that allows a glimpse into the future? However, if I was bank employee, I'm not sure that I would do it. In the near future, millions of bank employees will face lost jobs and millions of lost revenues. And we already see it happening; thousands of bank branches are closed, and alternative financial services receive billions in funding to entice banking customers.

I wrote this article because of an incident that happened to my friend last week; let's call him Steve. Steve wanted to buy a house by taking a loan at a bank he desired, but, in the end, he used another bank. I thought, it’s just a common thing because the offer by the other bank was better. Surprisingly, my friend denied this, saying the proposals were absolutely identical, which really intrigued me.

4. Why FinTech Outcompetes Banks with User Experience

Bill Gates said that banking will always be needed, but banks as we know could easily disappear. And FinTech is all about winning changes and everyday finance improvements!

In 2015 venture capitalists raised $19.1 billion USD to support FinTech revolution. With the five biggest banks controlling nearly $15 trillion in assets, FinTech’s $19.1 billion in venture investments look like peanuts. Anyway FinTech trend is only growing stronger and for the worst it is attacking most profitable sectors of banking.
