This means that, if Banks don’t act fast, they’ll keep losing relationships with customers. Consumers are increasingly looking for digital banking services provided by third-party tech firms. This is deteriorating the relationships between banks and their customers, and banks are losing out on branding and cross-selling opportunities.

But not all are bad news for banking, recent studies have revealed that almost 50% of customers react positively to location-based communications, which means that they are expecting faster and more personalized services.
