Webinar: 5 Surprising Ways to Reduce Abandonment During Identity Verification
We are thrilled to partner with Finovate on this webinar. Please use link below to register: About: Increasingly, financial services companies and retail banks are going digital -- not necessarily by choice -- but as a result of new competitive threats that include new challenger (digital) banks, upstart fintech companies, and even the likes of Amazon and Google. Recent research suggests that retail banks now lose as many as 52% of potential customers at the on-boarding stage, an increase of 35% in the last two years. Much of this abandonment occurs during the identity verification process -- presumably because the enrollment process is too time-consuming, complicated, and taxing. In this webinar, clever tips and tricks and best practices from Jumio, the global leader in online identity verification, will be discussed. This includes: - The importance of offering multiple channels for ID capture - The subtle art of messaging & its impact on conversions - The critical need to reduce the number of screens - Why you need a "yes" or a "no" verification decision....and not a "maybe" Please use link below to register:
