PACE 2018 findings- UK SMB

Now in its fourth year, the annual FIS™ Performance Against Customer Expectations (PACE) findings offer a clear view into how well banking providers are meeting the needs of their customers. For 2018, and for the second year in a row, FIS specifically surveyed smallto-midsize business (SMB) customers and asked them to rank the importance of nine key attributes and then score their primary banking provider’s performance in those areas. These nine key attributes are built into FIS’ RUN-CONNECT-GROW model, which represents a bank’s level of service and the steps to reach success.
