Fiserv Announces White Paper on mBanking Adoption

Fiserv financial services technology solutions announced its white paper on how financial institutions can boost mobile banking adoption among consumers. entitled, “Breaking the Mobile Banking Glass Ceiling: Five Factors Will Drive Consumer Adoption,” the paper addresses the question of how to encourage consumer adoption and usage has come to the forefront. When a new technology such as mobile banking is introduced, there is typically a group of early adopters who are eager to begin using the service. According to actual adoption figures from Fiserv, a financial institution can expect about 20 percent of eligible users to begin using mobile banking within 18 months of launching the service. After the 20 percent milestone is reached, adoption typically slows. The challenge lies in breaking this glass ceiling and gaining wider adoption across the entire customer base. It encourages administrators to establish mobile banking as useful; providing access to mobile banking through all devices; help consumers overcome security concerns; foster familiarity for a natural transition across channels; and make mobile banking easy to use.
