By necessity, every company is now a software company. By 2017, two-thirds of customer service transactions will no longer require the support of a human intermediary. That means that if you havenít already done so, you must adapt your business model to meet the needs of online customers. Failure to do so will put you at a severe competitive disadvantage.
And chief among those demands is that you provide an exceptional user experience. App speed, reliability and ease of use are the new currency in this fast-changing landscape. In fact, app characteristics such as convenience and the ability to save users time can enhance brand loyalty by 60 percent or more.
obile Payments have emerged as a catalyst
for transactions across all markets.
In underdeveloped markets, mobile payment
technology is enabling businesses to sell products
and services to consumers that had previously been
out of reach.
In developed markets, it has made the process of
purchasing products and services even simpler.
PayPal, one of the most popular digital payment
solutions on the market, facilitated $66 billion in
payment volume throughout 2015, and now has
188 million active registered user accounts across
the US. Furthermore, Statista projects that mobile
payments will account for more than $210 billion in
transactions by 2019.
Mobile payment technology is a step forward in
the process of connecting businesses to the people
they are serving. However, some merchants will find
themselves miles behind their competitors by the
time the transition to mobile payments is complete.
The reason? A failure to implement the correct
mobile payment strategy.
