  3. 3. Welcome to the 16th annual Bank Monitor Awards, which highlight the best online and mobile banking account tools and features offered by firms in six key areas. The categories selected for this annual report cover private site features, including the account maintenance capabilities that most impact the customer experience. In this report, we provide examples of the best in class for each of the online and mobile app tools covered and explain why we consider these features to be industry leaders. We distribute awards in gold, silver or bronze based on the quality of outstanding features and tools. The gold medal is reserved for the most robust and valuable tools, those that most closely achieve the ideal combination of important features and intuitive functionality. The silver medal goes to tools that offer great value but lack in some of the outstanding qualities of the leaders, and the bronze medal recognizes those tools or features that are imperfect but still offer account holders a valuable experience.

Corporate Insight is happy to assist all award-winning firms in promoting their honors. For more information, contact us at pr@corporateinsight.com. Account Summary Information Self-Service Options
  6. 6. Account summary information on the private site homepage provides customers with an overview of important account details. This year we focus on the desktop site presentation of account summary information, excluding related mobile app information. Firms should provide a balance summary offering the customer’s individual and combined balances along with more detailed account information, such as interest rates, nicknames, account numbers and overdraft status. The best private site homepages include a preview of upcoming and recent activity with options to make a quick transfer or payment without leaving the page. Account Summary Information 6© CORPORATE INSIGHT Citibank wins the gold medal for its overall account information presentation and its account aggregation capabilities.
  7. 7. Transaction History and Statements 7 Account history analyzes the presentation and availability of account transactions on the desktop site. As in past years, we evaluate account history, account statements and check images in a single category while also considering mobile app capabilities. Account holders should be able to access a lengthy statement archive along with other document types, including tax forms. All firms detail transactions in tables that include basic details, such as the transaction date, amount and description. Leading firms do so in an appealing manner, with an intuitive display for account holders to customize or modify page views to access more or less information. © CORPORATE INSIGHT USAA wins a gold medal for offering seven years of statements, 18 months of transaction history and transaction tagging with custom spending categories.
  8. 8. Person-to-Person Payments 8 Transferring funds in and out of bank accounts is an essential tool for online banking and is a core transaction feature provided by most retail bank websites. Given the introduction and fast expansion of Zelle in the market, this category focuses only on person-to-person payments—for both the desktop site and mobile apps—for the first time. We look at the ways that account holders can move money between their accounts and those held by others. In addition to the basic capabilities, we focus on the P2P interfaces and the versatility of each bank’s scheduling options. © CORPORATE INSIGHT U.S. Bank wins the gold medal by dedicating a main tab to its various P2P payment interfaces, with helpful features like internal balance information and a transaction search tool. The firm also stands out for offering an interface for sending and receiving money through Western Union.
  9. 9. Online Bill Pay 9 Banks in the coverage set offer a broad range of transactional capabilities, but for the first time this category focuses solely on desktop bill pay interfaces, a key driver of greater customer satisfaction with the firm. While bill pay is widely available, performance is uneven as many firms offer weak history and few bill pay alerts. Firms should provide a user-friendly and robust bill pay platform complete with a clear, consistent design along with advanced payee management options. © CORPORATE INSIGHT U.S. Bank wins a gold medal due to its comprehensive interface, which includes advanced services, and the option to pay bills directly from the private site homepage.
  10. 10. Self-Service Options 10 Self-servicing options are important functions allowing account holders to manage their online banking, and this year we evaluate these processes independently of help resources. We examine all mobile app self-service functionality in addition to desktop capabilities. Account holders should be able to update account and security information easily as well as access a wide variety of other banking resources, such as ordering paper checks and initiating stop payments. Firms should also make debit and check card management straightforward on both the desktop site and mobile app. © CORPORATE INSIGHT USAA earns gold here for its extensive self-servicing options, including a lengthy online forms interface, stop payment functionality and all-encompassing mobile app options.
  11. 11. Website Design and Usability 11 This category measures how easy it is to navigate through sites, taking into account main menu design, secondary navigation options and overall consistency. We look at page presentation throughout the private site, along with consistency between site features and link affordance. Those firms that provide one-click access to most site features from the main navigation earn high marks as do those with clear secondary navigation schemes. Those firms that offer particular customization options are also recognized in this category. © CORPORATE INSIGHT Wells Fargo stands out for its modern, user-friendly and mobile-optimized site that provides users with a consistent omni-channel experience.
