Although modern banking companies have invested heavily in efforts to improve customer experience, most of them tend to overlook ways to innovate their pricing strategies using effective banking industry price analysis solutions. Banking sector companies generally react to the changing regulations on product structures by modifying their pricing tactics to emphasize more on costs and risks. Meanwhile, several other sectors including airlines, ride-sharing services, hotels, and digital media continue to experiment with innovative pricing strategies, and their customers seem to have accepted the new pricing schemes with little resistance. Over the past couple of years, a few players in retail banking have made strategic pricing a core discipline and have consequently established a dominant presence in the industry.
