On the road to digital efficiency.

For Canadian Tire Bank, it was critical to build the right experience for both the digital-first and in-store customer. However, their existing customer insights required days to sift through, hindering their ability to react quickly.

Partnering with Quantum Metric, Canadian Tire Bank has enabled their digital teams to quickly identify the “why” behind customer frustrations and understand the scale of that issue related to their customer experience. This has drastically reduced the time needed to identify and resolve issues and minimized escalations across the organization.

“At Canadian Tire Bank, our continued growth depends on our ability to provide a seamless, best-in-class experience on both digital and physical channels. We needed a partner like Quantum Metric, to provide a clear understanding of what the customer journey looks like at every digital touchpoint and the context to take quick action to continue to make our customers experience better. ”

Credit checks and balances.

In one instance, Canadian Tire Bank noticed a spike in drop-offs in the credit card enrollment funnel. Using Quantum Metric, they could identify that when the site couldn’t verify a customer’s ID, it would ask them to visit a physical location, leading many to give up on the process altogether.

Addressing the root cause, they quantified the impact of the enrollment drop-offs and tested how new options could improve enrollment. This led the bank to integrate new services such as SecureKey and Verify.Me, which has enabled the organization to enhance credit card acquisition throughput, resulting in a 40% increase in successful credit card apps.
