6 steps to seamless customer onboarding

first_imgWith all of the opportunity in the financial services industry, customer onboarding has come up a lot lately. The focus on creating an exceptional introduction to your financial institution is imperative, since having a poor onboarding experience for your customers can pretty much kill your growth…if not your business.The first experience your customer has with your product sets the tone for your long-term relationship, and if it’s confusing, overwhelming, or otherwise puts up barriers to achieving success (or at least recognizing the value potential in your product), your financial institution will find it difficult to increase wallet share.Here are a few steps to ensure your customer has a seamless onboarding process, increases their product adoption, and stays with you for years to come. continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

‘We are at war’: France imposes lockdown to combat virus

first_imgAnyone flouting the restrictions, in place for at least the next two weeks, would be punished.”I know what I am asking of you is unprecedented but circumstances demand it,” Macron said.”We’re not up against another army or another nation. But the enemy is right there: invisible, elusive, but it is making progress.”He said tougher action was needed after too many people ignored earlier warnings and mingled in parks and on street corners over the weekend, risking their own health and the wellbeing of others. In France the coronavirus has killed 148 people and infected more than 6,600.Army mobilizedUnder the new measures, soldiers would help transport the sick to hospitals with spare capacity and a military hospital with 30 intensive care beds would be set up in the eastern region of Alsace, where one of the largest infection clusters has broken out.Macron said he was postponing the second round of local elections on Sunday. Because the government’s sole focus needed to be fighting the pandemic, he said he was suspending his reform agenda, starting with his overhaul of the pension system.The government would, when necessary, legislate by decree to fight the coronavirus, he said.Coronavirus infections and fatalities in France and Spain have been surging at a pace just days behind that of Italy, the epicenter of the outbreak in Europe where hospitals in the worst-hit northern regions are stretched to breaking point.Seeking to offer further reassurance to businesses, Macron said the government would guarantee 300 billion euros worth of loans. The loan guarantee plan would be submitted to parliament in coming weeks and would be retroactive, a finance ministry source said.Rent and utility bills owed by small companies would also be suspended to help them weather the economic storm, he added.”No French company, whatever its size, will be exposed to the risk of collapse,” Macron said.  French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday ordered stringent restrictions on people’s movement to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and said the army would be drafted in to help move the sick to hospitals.France had already shut down restaurants and bars, closed schools and put ski resorts off limits, but Macron said measures unprecedented in peacetime were needed as the number of infected people doubled every three days and deaths spiraled higher.In a somber address to the nation, the president said that from Tuesday midday (1100 GMT) people should stay at home unless it was to buy groceries, travel to work, exercise or for medical care.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Dino Babers’ 1st in-season press conference: James Pierre doesn’t qualify, young 1st-teamers and 3 a.m. movies

first_img Published on August 29, 2016 at 12:40 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Related Stories Syracuse football depth chart: Week 1 vs. ColgateTHE SPREAD: From Texas to Syracuse, Dino Babers brings the Baylor-style offenseSyracuse football roster updates: Trey Dunkelberger back to TE, Scoop Bradshaw to WR and moreSyracuse football training camp blog: Devin Butler switches numbers, Kenneth Ruff catches passes again and moreSyracuse football quarterback Zack Mahoney earns scholarship It’s four days from Dino Babers’ debut as Syracuse head coach, when the Orange kicks off against Colgate in the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m. Babers held his first game-week press conference at SU Monday morning in the Iocolano-Petty Football Wing Auditorium. Here are three things he said.James Pierre didn’t qualify with the NCAASyracuse defensive back signee James Pierre failed to qualify and will not join the team this season, Babers said Monday. The head coach has expressed frustration in recent weeks with the length of time it’s taken for Syracuse to find out about Pierre’s arrival.The Orange is already thin in the secondary after training camp injuries to redshirt senior Wayne Morgan, redshirt sophomore Rodney Williams and freshmen Evan Foster and Devon Clarke. Pierre could have helped an already beleaguered unit.On the depth chart released Monday morning, redshirt junior Corey Winfield and redshirt sophomore Cordell Hudson are listed as the first-team cornerbacks, with junior Antwan Cordy and sophomore Kielan Whitner manning the two safety spots.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textPraise for young first-teamers Coleman and ConwayFreshman defensive end Kendall Coleman is the only true freshman who made the first team ahead of Friday’s season-opener. He’ll line up opposite redshirt sophomore Chris Slayton after a knee injury presumably shifted redshirt freshman Jake Pickard to the second team.“I’ve seen a couple of freshmen in 31 years that’s impressed me enough to be someone that’s going to get as many reps as Kendall Coleman’s gonna get,” Babers said. “He does not speak much, but all he does is let his play speak for him. He has made a huge impression on me.”Sophomore Cody Conway will take over for departed redshirt senior Ivan Foy on Eric Dungey’s blind side after he beat out Michael Lasker for the left tackle spot in camp. Conway is one of three sophomore starters on offense along with Dungey and running back Dontae Strickland.“He showed the ability to do exactly what we were asking him to do,” Babers said of Conway. “The things that we ask offensive linemen to do shows up on tape when you watch Cody Conway.”Watching movies at 3:30 in the morningSleep hasn’t been coming often to Babers as he approaches his debut as a Power 5 head coach. A proclaimed movie buff, Babers has instead used the early hours of the morning in recent days to watch films such as “Road house” and “Kill the Messenger.”“Not much sleep,” Babers said with a grin. “I’ve been catching all the early shows.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
