An aesthetically pleasing, easy-to-understand user interface that delivers an unrivaled user experience will encourage high engagement from both current and prospective customers.
Mobile internet usage continues to trend upwards; and if you aren’t serving a mobile audience, you’re missing out on huge opportunity. An increasing number of users are accessing financial services websites from smartphones and tablets, and research has shown that mobile users are an impatient lot.
