Jon Voorhees, a banking Consultant at Peak Performance Consulting Group, predicts that “the need for advice or account services will increase as more customers need help charting a new path forward financially in a post-pandemic world. The role of the branch has already been shifting more to an advice center in the last few years and that trend will accelerate.”

Financial advice is best delivered face-to-face and when both parties are well prepared and have set aside a dedicated block of time to hold these important discussions. Both of those conditions are best met by appointments.

Key Takeaway: One-on-one appointments with CU staff can easily be scheduled online using the Better Lobby Mobile Appointment Booking Tool. Appointments not only remind visitors of the date/time of their appointment, but also remind them to bring the information necessary to the meeting, while simultaneously providing staff the opportunity to thoroughly prepare for the meeting in advance.
