Building Beyond Bricks & Mortar

User-centered design principles can aid Financial Services companies looking to build beyond their bricks & mortar footprint. Products, processes, and systems need to be crafted through a customer-centric lens. This means adopting more of a Fintech mindset and culture, placing a premium on the digital customer experience and developing new business models. Here are four ways to apply user-centered design today.

 

We’re Growing…as usual

You know that at Zemoga we are experts at building better digital experiences for our clients, you might be wondering how we do it. Well, it is all about the talent.

 

Maximizing Creative Technology Investments

Financial Services companies are in the vanguard of investing in digital to improve customer experience and internal operations. Regulatory and compliance requirements can make managing these efforts more complex. Below are recommendations for simplifying and streamlining workflow to maximize return on creative technology investments.

 

Post-Digital Transformation, Now What?

Digital transformation has been going on for decades. First it was on the financial side of the enterprise, then operations, then marketing. Today all these functions are attempting to integrate, with the customer at the center and technology and data holding it all together (and lots of consultants offering pov’s to the Board). At Zemoga we take a practical approach to building a better company through digital experience – more real world up than powerpoint down.

 

Building Better Digital Products in Financial Services

We’ve helped design and build a number of digital products for Financial Services firms in recent years and see recurring themes in this growing area. The shift to integrated Product Management, User Experience, and Technology teams has greatly improved both time to market and user adoption.

 

Millennial Early Onset Nostalgia and Yearning for Yesteryear

Nostalgia is one hell of a drug. Certain songs, places, people, and experiences conjure up fond memories of simpler times before job hunting and student loans crept into our lives seemingly overnight. Looking back on “the good ol’ days” offers an escape from our fast-paced, hectic lives by enabling us to “relive” or otherwise recapture pivotal moments of happiness that cultivated our present sense of self. Utilizing such positive emotions serves as a viable marketing tool, particularly when geared towards millennials who experience a cultural “information overload” that compresses their perception of time while enabling them to romanticize over experiences from the not-so-distant past.

Colombia’s Explosive Digital Immersion

Colombia’s engagement with digital and mobile activity has increased exponentially over the course of the past decade. The nation boasts the third largest percentage of total population online in Latin America. According to GlobalCollect and Newzoo, Colombia had the third-largest Internet user base in Latin America last year, with 31.6 million, trailing only Brazil (118.6 million) and Mexico (56.1 million). While the sheer size of their populations will keep the two Latin American giants solidly in their positions, Colombia was well ahead of the other historical regional giant, Argentina (27.0 million).
