Conversational Account Opening engages the applicant in a digital process that flows like a conversation instead of a filling out generic web form. For the applicant, the conversational style interface is more engaging, more familiar, and feels less like an unpleasant chore the member has to grind through. For the financial institution, it provides more marketing differentiation and makes it easier to offer the right products and cross-sell in a less intrusive way. As a result, the applicants complete applications promptly and open more accounts with the right products, just as they would if they walked into a branch and talked to an account officer.
