The Trouble Ahead with Millennials

March 02, 2017

“You’ve got to start with the customer experience and work back toward the technology – not the other way around.” – Steve Jobs

In 2014 Viacom Media released their study surveying over 10,000 millennials to try to understand what industries were most likely to be disrupted once their generation hit the market.  The number one industry ripe for disruption among the millennial crowd was banking.

The key findings of the study paint a dire picture for the future of banking:

  • 53% don’t think their bank offers anything different than other banks
  • 71% would rather go to the dentist than listen to what banks are saying
  • 1 in 3 are open to switching banks in the next 90 days
  • All four of the leading banks are among the ten least-loved brands by millennials

How can banks change their perception among this key demographic? Eric Schaub, Vice President of Mortgage Lending at Bank Midwest, believes the key is improving customer experience. He joins Lending On Call to discuss how to improve the customer experience with end-to-end solutions and how it could impact the future of banking.
