Consistently match customer needs with relevant products

Matching customers to financial products and services today is complex – it can be difficult for branch staff to understand each customer’s financial situation and needs. Human error or bias can lead to inaccurate product recommendations. When given the ability to choose their own products, consumers select the most appropriate products only 30 percent of the time because they don’t fully understand the products or services.
