Digging into the Customer Experience: Banking and Credit Cards
Corporate Insight’s Bank Monitor, Credit Card Monitor and Small Business Card Monitor provide ongoing coverage of the products, websites and overall customer experience offered by the nation’s leading banks and card issuers.

In this edition of Bank Monitor Report, we investigate the capabilities of each firm’s Alert Center in order to assess the ease with which clients can set up and maintain alerts, as well as the actual alert options provided and customization abilities.
In this Bank Monitor report, we looked at both types of account and security alerts offered to account holders by each bank, as well Alert History and Delivery Options, in order to establish which firm provides clients with the best overall center. As we investigated each bank’s Alert Center, we focused on the following issues:
