3 Myths Holding Back ROI for Digital Channels: A Gartner® Report

Escape the cycle: Use digital channels as growth drivers

A report from Gartner found that, “FS [Financial services] leaders are stuck in a cycle where they constantly have to invest more and more of their budgets in digital experience technology, but expect less and less from that investment.” 

The financial services industry has largely relied on a strategy wherein digital channels are optimized for everyday interactions, and complex transactions and sales motions are almost exclusively conducted in-person. FS leaders see the in-person customer experience—not the digital experience—as the competitive differentiator.
