The findings from this research highlight the demand for standard metrics to guide decision making on alternative delivery channels in a changing environment. The research also indicates that financial service providers must begin by updating their reporting systems and dashboards to track these metrics. Doing so will allow them to analyze alternative delivery channel performance within their institutions and also to contribute their data to create visibility onto the overall market.
