No matter what industry you’re in, the most essential aspect of any product or service is customer experience. In today’s world, customer experience (CX) can make or break a startup.
CX can also be the downfall of long-established companies. Myspace lost to Facebook partly due to its disorganized interface and cluttered ad space. Users wanted a social media experience that presented tailored content in an easy-to-digest manner. In 2010, they lost almost 50% of their customers following an aggressive in-site advertising model.
With 97% of websites failing at user experience, it’s more important than ever to stand out. To create a killer app, you need to provide the client with a streamlined and valuable user experience and an onboarding process that they barely even notice.
Super apps offer the customer an experience so comprehensive and seamless that it removes the need for any other app.
WhatsApp became the go-to messaging app by offering a low-cost alternative to messaging that was highly familiar to users. It could be installed on any platform in seconds and connected using only a phone number. With over 2 billion clients, WhatsApp has replaced phone calls and text messages for many users worldwide.
Spotify was only created in 2006 but has quickly gained a reputation as one of the most popular music streaming apps, with over 170 million users. It did so with an incredibly easy-to-use “freemium” model that lets users discover new music tailored to their unique tastes through sophisticated data collection. With the human brain perceiving anything under 250 milliseconds as instant, Spotify plays songs within 285 milliseconds.
Google Search has proven to be the ultimate search engine, after all, how often do you hear people telling others to “just google it?” It is the most visited website worldwide with a 92% share of the global search engine market and handles more than 3.5 billion searches per day. Google search results are tailored and high-quality, giving users exactly what they’re searching for with almost any input. Advertisements are integrated into the design of the website with little visual noise. Google is also able to return millions of results in 190 milliseconds.
What these apps have in common is that they offer an unparalleled customer experience with all users might need at their fingertips in what seems like an instant. CX is the core tenet of building a reputable and profitable company.
So how do you create this in the fintech industry?
Creating a next-gen fintech app
To create a super app in fintech, you have to provide the customer with everything they might need in an intuitive and streamlined way. This includes personal finance services, wealth portfolio management, and financial screening, all while being AML (Anti Money Laundering) and CFT compliant and easy to use.
Several open banking APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) like Nordigen or Plaid already offer this to the traditional finance sector. However, you’ll need to integrate Web3 options to provide a truly comprehensive service to clients.
With over 320 million crypto users worldwide, it makes sense to cater to this ever-growing market of customers with both conventional and digital assets. The average crypto user has over 3 crypto wallets and even more crypto apps. This, combined with the apps and accounts they use in traditional finance, can pose a headache for your clients. Onboarding users needs to be a pain-free process for both you and your users.
Offering your customers a service that connects all their assets and accounts seamlessly in one app gives you an edge in a highly competitive market.
Secondly, you need to be fast. Attention is a finite resource in the modern age of the internet. 53% of mobile website users will leave a page if it doesn’t load in 3 seconds. Integrating crypto options and onboarding new clients needs to be simple, streamlined, and speedy. That’s why our API can connect your users’ accounts and wallets to your platform in a matter of moments.
Integrating Web3 options into services can considerably boost your company’s user base while increasing profits. After introducing cryptocurrency options in 2018, Revolut gained over 6.5 million new customers in a year. And it doesn’t have to be a regulatory headache with weeks of coding ahead.
With Blockmate’s API, you can safely integrate a wide range of crypto services into your next-gen fintech app or platform and offer your customers the speed and convenience they expect.
