  • 4 indisputable steps to optimized customer engagement

    first_imgGone are the days of a linear banking experience. The banking journey has evolved into a dynamic path, defined by a proliferation of touchpoints and owned by customers who desire a better omnichannel experience.However, financial institutions are facing major challenges in not only meeting consumers’ omnichannel demands, but also delivering on customer engagement and hyper-personalization. To meet these demands, stay relevant, and compete on experience, banks and credit unions need to organize their data into a single point of control and offer dynamic, individualized customer banking experiences — something some refer to as smart banking.The key first step in accomplishing this lofty goal is embracing digital transformation. Marketers must recognize that today’s wide range of touchpoints are an opportunity to deliver additional value to the consumer and improve their overall omnichannel experience. To translate customer data from these touchpoints into business value, financial institutions must have the ability to blend their massive volumes of data into a single point of control over data, decisions, and interactions. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

  • A restaurant owner’s message of safety after temporarily closing his business due to COVID-19

    first_imgTony’s Italian Grill is expected to reopen Tuesday, July 28. Miller says his employee who tested positive is expected to recover soon. Around Sunday morning on July 19, co-owner of Tony’s Italian Grill, Jared Miller, says he learned one of his employees tested positive. Without hesitation, he decided it was best for his restaurant to close down for an entire week to keep his customers and employees safe. ENDICOTT (WBNG) — Tony’s Italian Grill decided to temporarily close immediately after an employee tested positive. The owner says it was an easy decision to take initiative. “With something like this, you really just can’t be too careful,” said Miller. “You can always build a business back up, but you can’t always build a person’s health back up.” Broome County Health Director, Rebecca Kaufman, says it was great to see businesses like Tony’s Italian Grill take initiative, but urges everyone to always contact the health department regarding cases so they can thoroughly help. “I do encourage businesses to be proactive and transparent,” said Kaufman. “I think the community really likes that. It’s important, but I also think working with us in joint messaging is helpful, too.” Miller acted so quickly, he closed before he even got to speak with the Broome County Health Department. However, once he did, the department did its investigation and contact tracing to ensure everyone who needed to be was in quarantine.last_img read more

  • Tammy Abraham to pen Chelsea bumper deal

    first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Chelsea will offer academy product Tammy Abraham new bumper contract in the new year. Abraham, who scored the winner against Arsenal on Sunday, has been prolific this season leading the line for Frank Lampard’s Blues. Abraham has two-and-a-half years remaining but his value would have skyrocketed off the back of his 14 goals and five assists this season. Abraham is believed to be holding out for a similar pay packet, although he has longer remaining on his deal than Callum Hudson-Odoi did when he signed his contract. Chelsea fans were ecstatic after Abraham copied club legend Didier Drogba’s goal celebration after he stroke the late winner against the Gunners at the Emirates. The former Blue has now responded by praising the England international on Twitter. “I get goosebumps replaying this goal and the celebration after Tammy Abraham. Chelsea, what a win at the Emirates come on you Blues!” Frank Lampard was full of praise for Abraham after the victory, as his No.1 striker took his goal tally for the season to 14. “It will help him for sure. Tottenham last week he showed everything apart from the goals,” he said. “I get the big six thing from the outside. As he develops he’ll do that even more. That’s the beauty of Tammy, he will never hide and constantly be in the box and get hungrier.”Tags: ArsenalCallum Hudson-OdoiChelseaDidier DrogbaFrank LampardgunnersTammy Abrahamlast_img read more

  • Blues back on track

    first_img Last weekend’s surprise defeat in Newcastle ended talk of the Blues going through the season unbeaten, allowing resurgent Manchester City to close the gap at the top of the Premier League. There were moments against Hull when it appeared this could be another bad day for Chelsea, but efforts from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa saw them triumph 2-0 against a side reduced to 10 men after a wild Tom Huddlestone challenge. Cahill became the fourth man to collect a yellow card after a late lunge which saw Aluko require treatment – epitomising a scrappy first half in which a blocked Costa effort was the best Chelsea could muster after pulling ahead. The hosts’ sloppy performance continued in the second half, with Livermore firing just wide from the edge of the box after some intricate passing. Mourinho’s side were creating few chances and perhaps that was behind Cahill’s apparent dive in the box. Hull had expected Foy to hand the centre-back a second booking, only to be incensed when the referee pointed for a goal-kick. The City players harangued the official, who was soon under pressure from Chelsea after Alex Bruce smashed through Willian. The substitute was only given a booking – the same punishment dished out to Costa for diving soon after, despite having clearly been caught by Huddlestone. One decision Foy definitely got right, though, was the red card meted out to the former Tottenham midfielder with 30 minutes remaining, after a late lunge on Filipe Luis. Shortly before becoming the latest player booked, Chester escaped calls for a penalty and Hazard struck a shot straight at Allan McGregor. It was 2-0 in the 68th minute when Hazard followed a long run by playing a lovely one-two with Branislav Ivanovic, before putting through Costa to turn home. Oscar and Cahill saw efforts blocked in quick succession, before Ivanovic fired over and a dangerous Willian cross evaded his team-mates. Substitute Andre Schurrle twice saw efforts blocked as the clock wound down. Jose Mourinho’s men edged their card-laden clash with Hull – but it was not one of the impressive, dominant displays Chelsea fans have become accustomed to. Press Association The struggling visitors could have no arguments with that decision, but referee Chris Foy is likely to come under scrutiny after handing out seven yellow cards in addition to that second-half red. There could have been more cards had the officials spotted John Obi Mikel’s stamp on Sone Aluko in the build-up to Hazard’s early header, while Hull’s players were furious that Gary Cahill did not receive a second booking for what appeared to be a dive. Chelsea struggled to create much without the suspended Cesc Fabregas but were given a helping hand when Huddlestone saw red, with Costa capitalising to end a four-game scoring drought in all competitions. In fairness to Hull, their performance belied that of a side without a league win in eight matches – and they did well to recover from a bad start. Less than seven minutes were on the clock when Chelsea controversially opened the scoring. A clumsy Mikel challenge on Aluko was missed and play continued, with the ball sprayed out wide to Oscar, whose cross was nodded home by Hazard. It was a bad start which soon got worse for Hull as injury forced Steve Bruce to bring on son Alex in place of the injured Michael Dawson. City responded fairly strongly considering those early blows, with Jake Livermore flashing a strike wide before Aluko missed the target in a move started by Mikel being dispossessed. David Meyler joined team-mate Huddlestone in the referee’s notebook after a comical attempt to hook a corner back into play with a hand, before Willian was booked for taking a tumble as play became stretched. last_img read more

  • Syracuse notches 1st road ACC win, 60-55, at Pittsburgh

    first_imgPITTSBURGH — For once, Frank Howard and Jim Boeheim locked eyes. Syracuse’s head coach clenched his fist, then he took a couple of steps toward his starting point guard. Howard had finally, in Boeheim’s eyes, listened, after several series of miscommunication earlier in the game. Among their disagreeable exchanges was a heated argument as Howard came off the court in the first half.“Just a quick back and forth,” said Howard, who had six points and four assists. “I got a little frustrated for a few seconds.”Because save for a couple of buckets and the occasional assist, Howard had been caught in the bug that swung over Petersen Events Center on Saturday afternoon. From missed shots to turnovers to sloppy handles, no side could gain traction — the teams combined to shoot about 30 percent from the field — save for a small burst late in the game, punctuated by a nifty Howard pass to set up a Tyus Battle corner 3-pointer. That’s when Boeheim’s eyes met Howard’s, an event which coincided with Syracuse’s outbreak in a 60-55 victory, SU’s third straight.On the heels of its most efficient offensive outing of the season, Syracuse shot just 22.2 percent from the floor in the first half. The Orange barely eclipsed 30 percent for the game against Pitt’s matchup zone. But 10 days after a 59-45 win over Pittsburgh (8-14, 0-9 Atlantic Coast), the Orange (15-6, 4-4) dismantled its former Big East rival again — a small but important first step toward beefing up its NCAA Tournament resume.The Orange finished 2-7 last season on the road in ACC play, and because SU had drifted to an 0-3 ACC road start this season, SU entered Saturday just 2-10 on the road in the ACC over the past two seasons.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“You go on the road, it’s tough,” Boeheim said, adding: “They keep trying, they keep playing, they keep scratching away. That’s all you can do.”Earlier this month, the Orange sputtered to a four-game losing streak, which included losses at Wake Forest, Virginia and a double-overtime loss at FSU. The Orange gets five more road chances this season to prove its worth, beginning with Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Wednesday night.Frank Howard struggled, shooting just 2-for-10 from the field, but made a big assist on a late Tyus Battle 3 to help Syracuse grind out its first ACC road win. Todd Michalek | Staff PhotographerThrough the season’s first 20 games, Syracuse went with the same five starters. But freshman forward Marek Dolezaj earned a starting nod Saturday in place of Matthew Moyer, who sustained a left ankle sprain Wednesday against BC. Moyer will be “out for a while,” Boeheim said. Dolezaj played most of the game and contributed five rebounds, seven points and three assists.Bourama Sidibe, a freshman forward battling tendinitis in his left knee, played more than he has in nearly two months. He reached a career-high in rebounds— in the first half — and added a team-high 18 points. He ended with 16 rebounds and was “tremendous … the difference in the game,” Boeheim said.A loss, which seemed possible for about 38 minutes, would have proved detrimental to Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament hopes. Pitt entered the contest scoring the fewest points per game (64.4) in the ACC and as the only team in the conference with a negative scoring margin on the season.Yet the Panthers, despite shooting under 30 percent from the field in the first half, scoring just six points in a span of 13:39, cobbled together enough baskets to hang with the Orange.In the first half, Boeheim cycled through his lineup as frequently as he has all season. A Howard tossed pass out of bounds prompted a substitution. A Dolezaj missed blockout prompted a change. An Oshae Brissett fadeaway jumper off balance prompted a change, too. The SU bench became a revolving door of sorts, with no real sign of offensive life anywhere.“We can’t have you do that,” Boeheim told junior center Paschal Chukwu after he hesitated with the ball then failed to get right back on defense.The Orange, players said, could benefit from more consistent movement on offense. Stronger finishing underneath the basket from Brissett. A more aggressive Battle, who took just three second-half shots, and continued contribution from freshmen Sidibe and Dolezaj.Afterward, SU players meandered toward the locker room, with 10 games remaining on the schedule. One of the only signs of optimism was a Gerry McNamara “atta boy” to Sidibe, because the message had become plenty clear: Syracuse knows it has work to do.“Grinded it out, man,” Howard said at his locker after the game. “That’s all I can say.”“Say that again, boy,” Brissett said from the neighboring locker.
