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.
