How to improve conversions on Compass online channels through UX.


Compass Banca S.p.A.

Numbers, numbers, numbers

Increase the customer base, improve the quality of leads collected, reduce navigation time and decrease the abandonment rates, review the interaction processes to be more mobile-oriented: these were the goals that meduse had to reach for Compass, one of the main players in the competitive consumer credit market.

Design, test, improve

Thanks to our long lasting collaboration with Compass Digital Team, meduse is committed to the continuous improvement of the user experience on different digital touch points. Over the past three years we have designed, developed, and tested all the interfaces dedicated to prospects and customers. We analyzed the performances and improved the processes based on an iterative methodology, and this led us to question the decisions taken to promptly respond to the changing needs of users and the customer himself.



Simplicity, lightness, clarity, transparency and recognition. These five principles still guide the design choices in all contexts. The market, sensitive and complex, and people, heterogeneous and often in difficult situations, require particular attention to maintain a positive experience that easily risks bringing stress and frustration.

Step one: engagement

In 2016 meduse began to realize assets for Compass digital marketing: dem, banner, landing page, video animations. Since then and thanks to our contribution, Compass positioning has evolved and marketing strategies have been more and more involved as conversion tool. User experience begins outside of digital properties.


Online loan. Completely online

In 2017, meduse is asked to review the user experience of the online loan application process. This is the start of an intense co-design phase: internal and external actors working together to improve the performance of the process by simplifying the user experience. The result is remarkable and enables Compass to optimize marketing strategies, directing users to the bank offices or online according to their different needs.

Let’s meet up. It just takes one day

Thanks to the results achieved, Compass and meduse open the construction site of the make an appointment' process. Compass' business model is closely linked to the concept of proximity, thanks to its widespread presence in the territory (over 200 branches). The starting point for the design of the new application is the mobile use. What is the nearest branch? Is it crowded? What is the first availability? These are the questions the application wants to answer. The user experience was revised a first time in 2017 and a second one in 2019. The focus has shifted from quantity to quality: through user experience it is possible to improve the quality of leads.


Nel progetto del 2019 il focus si è spostato sull’utente con l’introduzione dell’appuntamento “veloce”, suggerito dal sistema.
