    Educating and Supporting Credit Card Users

    By Mapa Research 05 Dec 2017

    Supporting and educating credit card users has become an all-important task. Why? In the UK, the Bank of England revealed that from April 2016 – April 2017, consumer credit (which credit cards fall into) had increased by 10.3%. At the same time, the Federal Reserve announced that credit card debts in the US are at $1.027 trillion, the highest since 2008. Whilst consumers are taking on more debt, incomes have largely remained the same. For this reason, it has become even more important that financial providers are doing their part to ensure that consumers are not creating unnecessary debt. Over the past two quarters, Mapa’s Credit Card Monitor has seen the digital support offered to credit card holders, both in the UK and the US, increase in a number of ways.

    PFM tools in mobile banking

    By Mapa Research 05 Dec 2017

    Personal Financial Management (PFM) tools help customers better understand their financial health, what they are spending money on, and trends around their incoming and outgoing cash. Often these tools let customers put money to one side, to help them reach financial goals. Banking providers who prioritize PFM focus on helping customers understand and control their financial situation. While we know that challengers are putting PFM at the heart of their offerings, continually improving the analytics and categorization supplied, incumbent banks have been slower to bring even basic PFM tools to the forefront of their mobile or desktop banking platforms.
