Do your checking accounts exceed goals and deliver the bottom line results you want? Do staff get excited just having the chance to mention checking options to prospective account holders?
Probably not. That’s why you’re here.
Checking in the banking industry is evolving. With a whole lot of service providers explaining why their solution is the best. Before discussing any, let’s step back and figure out what matters to you.
What are some challenges you want to address?
- Increase revenue
- Build loyalty & retention
- Differentiate from competition
- Acquire new accounts
- Reduce costs
Perfect, because we have an answer for you. 4 answers, in fact. The four best checking solution providers for financial institutions like yours.
Depending on how you rank the challenges above (or even discover unique ones we didn’t mention), our guide will help you decide which providers (and what kind of solution) makes the most sense for your institution.
Before we get to our guide, make sure you take a look at our “7 Ways to Increase Checking Account Revenue.” This is especially helpful if your goal is to grow through means other than NSF and OD fees (which, as we repeat often, is not our idea of mission-focused, non-punitive revenue).
Your checking program is where loyalty, engagement, and onboarding really begin. So what are you doing to ensure it’s firing on all cylinders? This Cheat Sheet will give you 4 quick, actionable steps to make the most of your checking program.
