A new account opening survey gathers feedback from new customers about their satisfaction with your services and any suggestions they have to improve the overall banking experience.

Additionally, in most cases new members had poor experiences with a competitor, causing them to switch to your bank or credit union.

A new account opening survey can measure these poor experiences allowing your financial institution to understand what improvements this new member is looking for.


Customer or Member Surveys

A customer or member survey for a financial institution can provide a wealth of data, information, and feedback to help drive decision-making.

It can help you understand how satisfied your customers are with your financial services and identify areas where you may need to improve.

By gathering feedback directly from this audience, you can make changes and adjustments that help increase customer loyalty and retention. 


Closed Account Surveys

A closed account survey is a mechanism used to gather feedback from customers who have recently closed their accounts.

The purpose of the survey is to understand why someone closed their account and to identify any potential issues that may have contributed to the customer's decision.

By analyzing this feedback, financial services companies can make changes to their business practices, customer service, or product offerings to reduce the likelihood of future customers closing their accounts.


Online and Mobile Banking User Experience (UX) Research
