Cornerstone Don't Abandon Me 3D image

In today’s world, banks can no longer rely on branch traffic to generate account openings. New deposit accounts per branch have dropped more than 37% over the past seven years, and an increasing number of accounts are being lost to digital banks that offer a seamless online account opening experience. 

However, simply enabling a remote account opening process is not enough. With abandonment rates above 50%, financial institutions (FIs) that want to win new customers must figure out how to digitally onboard a customer while also minimizing friction and fraud. For many, this means adopting digital identity verification methods.
