A South East Asian bank was having issues promoting a new bank account for teens they had created to cater to their demographic in Malaysia.
Our team was asked to provide insight on the user experience of South Eastern bank enrollees with the MyBank mobile app, and to map the pain points in their journey with a specific focus on Opening a New Bank Account from a mobile standpoint.
As a final deliverable, we created a mockup and interactive prototype for the experience of opening a teen bank account on their mobile site.
Our team interviewed several South East Asian MyBank and competitor bank users in their context through Round Feather’s proprietary emotion-driven design approach. We uncovered the personas and their deep user needs and emotional tensions when interacting with the mobile app and identified the pain points in the journey..
After mapping the emotional journey of the MyBank mobile app users and compared it with that of competitor local banking applications, our team designed new user flows which would convert the pain into bliss, focusing on a selection of scenarios built from the research insights.
In this specific country, it is not always possible to open an account directly online, so people need to schedule an appointment to the branch to complete the application.
The output we presented to the client was an interactive prototype showing how Leila could easily access clear information on:
