Three analytics tips to help customers grow their business

first_imgEvery business’ ultimate goal is to grow and increase profits. Business owners often underestimate the importance of analytics and struggle to get timely and measurable insights that drive the bottom line. As an important partner to small businesses, credit unions should take on the task of ensuring members are effectively using the tools available to them to track analytics. There are many factors that can influence the success of business on any given day, and data analytics should be top of mind for business owners so they can make informed decisions that will help them reach their goals.Education is key in launching an analytics program; these three tips will help you to better educate your members on how analytics can help their business succeed in the long-term:1.     Use Analytics to Grow BusinessNo one will know a particular company better than the business professionals running it. Even still, there are certain factors when it comes to consumer spending and member behavior that a business decision maker may not be able to identify. You can help by providing insights on how analytics can help them better understand the needs of members and anticipate member behavior. By defining which analytics make the most sense to track for their specific business, you can guide your members to use customized analytics to help their business grow.2.     Highlight Ease of UseNot everyone is a math wizard, and understanding detailed analytics can be a daunting task. Many small business owners become intimidated by the thought of analytics because they think the concept is too complicated to understand or their business isn’t complex enough to need analytics. However, modern business analytics can be understood easily and can provide businesses with meaningful insights. You can position yourself and your credit union as a go-to resource not only for financial issues, but business analytics as well. For members, the added support helps to drive home the important partnership they have developed with their credit union professional.3.     Showcase Availability and AccessibilityCloud-based, mobile and big data technologies have made it easier to access analytics. Prior to the more advanced technology that we use today, analytics solutions were set up for a specific company; however, the cloud has made it possible for analytics solutions to be more diverse and cater to many businesses. Today, business professionals can access essential information at any time from a computer or mobile device. This is an opportunity for you, as a credit union professional, to showcase your knowledge of the rapidly changing world of big data and make recommendations on analytics solutions that are both convenient and critically important to your customer’s business success.Business analytics are no longer restricted to the national chains, and credit unions can help educate their members by spreading the word. Small- and medium-size business owners can use analytics solutions that provide the same level of insights and valuable information as their larger competitors, and in turn, help grow their business in the long-term. 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Neal Korzekwinski Neal Korzekwinski is Senior Vice President of Strategic Partner Sales and Management at First Data, a global technology and payments processing company that serves more than six million merchant locations … Web: www.firstdata.com Detailslast_img read more

CSKA – Sirens – European Tournaments

first_imgExactly at 20:00 CSKA will start its European campaign in the 2020/2021 season. The Reds had an excellent draw for the first qualifying round of the Europa League and host the Maltese Sirens at their Bulgarian Army Stadium, for which this will be their debut in Europe, after the team played in the elite of the local championship for the first time last season.The match of the “Bulgarian Army” began with a serious situation in favor of the opponent. Maxwell Maya Da Silva jokingly went through several players in red, then shot within range of Gustavo Busato.Surprisingly, the Maltese continued to play quite boldly and aggressively, which in the 8th minute could have led to a goal. After a cross from a corner, the home defense acted disoriented and Bradley Maziku with a bad attempt to clear sent the ball with a dangerous parabola to the door and only the careful action of Busato saved the situation.The Reds started to find themselves only after the 20th minute, which led to a period of ten minutes with three positions. First Stefano Beltrame shot with side scissors after a corner, and then Ali Sow got to the real first danger when he shot from a comfortable position from volley, but goalkeeper David Kassar killed. In the 27th minute Rafael Enrique broke through alone and shot dangerously over the door.However, this ended the situation in front of Sirens’ goal and by the end of the half CSKA was satisfied only with a more serious possession of the ball, which did not lead to anything.CSKA – Sirens 0: 0Here are the lineups of both teams:CSKA: Busato – Maziku, Antov, Matei, Galabov – Yuga, Thiago Rodriguez – Kerry, Beltrame, Enrique – SowReserves: Evtimov, Yurich, Sankare, Yordanov, Ahmedov, Smolenski, YomovCyrins: David Cassar – Espindola, Borg, Dos Agnos, Romeu (30 ‘Walker) – Skiklona, ​​Agius – Bustos, Maya Da Silva, De Oliveira – DomoroReserves: Montfort, L.Greh, Pearson, R.Greh, Mifsud, Walker, MenezesJudge: Krzysztof Jakubiklast_img read more
