What’s fueling your mobile banking channel?

first_imgDigital marketing capabilities – Incorporate promotional messages into your mobile banking app with offers pinpointed to each member’s specific interests. The same technology that saves consumers time also becomes another touch point to deepen your member relationships.In its March 2015 study, “Consumers and Mobile Financial Service,” the Federal Reserve found that 39 percent of U.S. cell phone users with bank accounts use mobile banking. That number jumps to 52 percent for smartphone users, and are a whopping 60 percent Millennials. Mobile is taking over the Internet Highway, and the state of your mobile channel will fuel members’ needs or drive them away. Mobile e-statements – Today, fewer people view their account activity seated at a computer, so provide options. Choose an e-statement provider whose mobile statements are secure, easy to access and readable on any device. Secure delivery of sensitive documents – Consumers want private, timely information about balance alerts, late payment notices or overdrafts. Incorporate them into your mobile banking app so members can easily review them when they login. No one wants to learn about an unexpected charge a week after it’s assessed. 92SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jesse Boyer Web: Details Steve Jobs, who often knew what consumers wanted before they did, once said, “My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”Members agree. Time savings and easy access are at the top of their lists … and, frankly, doing their “banking” is sort of near the bottom. They want to do it the quickest, most convenient ways they can and then get on to other activities. Today, that means fueling your mobile channel with the same functionality as you do with online banking.Mobile is driving the InternetAn April 2015 report from Internet analytics firm comScore revealed that 60 percent of the time people spend online is done using their mobile phones or tablets. And Chase Bank reports that a third of the its customers used mobile banking in 2014. Mobile banking is now a fully vested digital channel with nearly a billion users worldwide, so it needs to be full-service.In an Aug. 10 article in The Financial Brand (“Mobile Banking Usage to Double”), Jim Marous noted that the .8 billion users now using mobile banking is just the beginning. Citing the Global Mobile Banking Report from KPMG in partnership with UBS Evidence Lab, he said, “The number of mobile banking users globally is forecast to double to 1.8 billion over the next four years, representing over 25% of the world’s population.”After financial institutions offered limited functionality for many years, “the majority of banking organizations finally have some kind of mobile banking offering, either developed in house or in partnership with third-party solution providers,” Marous said. But is this enough?Make it premium gradeWith the number of consumers using mobile for all kinds of Internet activities growing exponentially, it makes sense that mobile banking should be more than just an “add on.” Yet, most U.S. financial institutions make just 20 percent of their online functions available through their mobile channels.In his article, Marous suggests using today’s technology to offer “value added mobile services, such as advisory services and virtual customer support [and] contextual cross-selling, leveraging both captured customer insight as well as locational data.” And the KPMG/UBS findings show that strong mobile strategies must be combined with good execution for success.From account alerts and loan apps to secure, private mobile e-statements and targeted, personalized offers, feature-rich mobile services take a lot of the hassle out of banking. And with a well-designed program that lets members move seamlessly from one device to another, they can balance a statement while waiting for the kids to finish Karate lessons or apply for a car loan in the dentist’s lobby.Give it a check-upYour mobile channel needs to be just as robust and up to date as your online channel, so give it regular tune-ups. Consider these tips:Responsive design – Have a consistent look and feel across all communication channels. Members should be able to easily recognize your brand, whether they are on a desktop, tablet, phone or wearable technology. Make sure the screen is optimized on any device for easy navigation and readability.last_img read more

Reconciling Kobe’s legacy

first_imgFrom celebrities to former presidents, it felt as if the entire world stopped on Sunday to remember and pay tribute to the man that was Kobe Bryant. As nearly every news outlet has described, Kobe was many things: an 18-time NBA All-Star, league MVP and five-time NBA champion. Kobe was also a role model with a work ethic and tenacity so legendary that they served as an inspiration not only for basketball but also life. When police questioned Kobe, he denied having sex with the woman three times before learning they’d taken semen and blood evidence. He then admitted to having sexual intercourse with the accuser but argued that it was consensual. Kobe Bryant was an NBA legend but his legacy should stretch beyond the court, writes Stuart Carson. (Photo via Los Angeles Lakers / Twitter) The #MeToo movement challenged many people’s conscious and subconscious attitudes toward women and victims of sexual harassment and violence. Since its start, countless men who previously escaped consequences have faced justice. By all accounts, Kobe appears to have been a curious, hard-working man who sincerely loved his family and was deeply devoted to his daughters — a man whom, in many aspects of his life, we should all aspire to resemble. Countless others have written and spoken about Kobe’s life in some form or another since his untimely death. Bill Simmons, famed sports columnist and host of the B.S. podcast, called the day the saddest in NBA history. Jimmy Kimmel, host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” described Kobe as “a hero in the way Superman is a hero” before choking back tears later in his monologue. I confess I do not know exactly what to do with this information. In the days since Kobe’s death I have alternated between feeling empty at the sudden loss of a childhood hero to feeling enraged at the prospect that on at least one night, he might’ve been a monster. This is not the first column I expected to write; however, I do expect it to be the most difficult. However, the aforementioned chapter of Kobe’s life was far more than just an incident. It was when a 19-year-old girl accused then 24-year-old Bryant of rape in 2003. Kobe was charged with felony assault. Over the course of his 14-month criminal proceedings, Kobe’s defense team, along with much of the media, emphasized his accuser’s promiscuity, her struggles with depression and her enthusiasm to meet the basketball legend. The case ended when the young woman stopped cooperating after her name was revealed to the media three times. In the post-#MeToo era, it is not difficult to surmise why she may have asked prosecutors to drop her case. “On your best days, the days you landed a big account or aced a big test or just survived a battle with traffic, you felt like Kobe,” Plaschke wrote. “You were Kobe.” However, the rush of all these emotions was accompanied by something almost just as painful: a consuming sense of conflict and confusion as I tried to reconcile Kobe’s near God-like standing in my childhood with his complicated off-the-court legacy.center_img Unfortunately, the tributes, stats and stories do not tell the full story of Kobe’s legacy. Along with all of the accolades, points scored and records broken, a dark chapter of Kobe’s career has been glossed over and cast aside as “off-the-court stuff” in the wake of his death. According to the police transcript of an interview conducted with the woman the next day, she knew Bryant could hear her because “every time I said no he tightened his hold around me.” I also admit that I am somewhat fearful about writing this column. I am fearful that I may be inappropriately besmirching a man’s memory only days after his death and the death of his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna. I am fearful that I might be more concerned with protecting a powerful man’s name than acknowledging the indescribable pain of a potential rape survivor. Los Angeles Times columnist Bill Plaschke expressed these same sentiments following Kobe’s death. I do not blame them. However, in light of all this, I do not believe it is either controversial or heroic to merely recommend that, as we discuss and reconstruct Kobe’s legacy over the upcoming days, months and years, we consider the worst elements of his legacy along with the best. After learning of Kobe Bryant’s passing Sunday, I felt consumed — consumed by shock, consumed by sadness, consumed by a deep sense of loss. Kobe was an idol of mine as a child. I grew up watching Lakers games throughout elementary and middle school and could probably still find his jersey buried somewhere in my closet at home, the first jersey my father ever bought for me. It is easy to claim you believe women, that you are attuned and enlightened to the social sensitivities of our time or that you have no tolerance for sexual misconduct. It becomes more difficult when the man at the center of said misconduct is Kobe Bryant. According to the accuser, who was then a desk clerk at a hotel in Colorado, she was giving Kobe a tour of the hotel when Kobe began to grope and kiss her. The details of what allegedly happened next are disturbing and include the allegation that Bryant raped the young women over her repeated cries for him to stop. If we have learned anything from the national reckoning that was that movement, and if we hope to live by its highest virtues, we must remember Kobe’s legacy in its entirety.

MoT Honors Employee for ‘Hard Work’

first_imgMinister Wlue presents gown to Mr. Zubah.The adage, “give a man his flowers while he is alive, was manifested in the life of John Zubah when authorities of the Ministry of Transport (MoT) assembled on Friday, November 9, and honored him for his dedication to duty, commitment and outstanding service to the ministry and his colleagues.“Pa Zubah,” as he fondly called by other employees, joined the ministry’s family in 2009 as a driver, serving three Assistant Ministers for Administration and Insurance, until March this year.At the occasion, the grounds of the ministry turned into jubilation as excited employees presented gifts, including cash, to “Pa Zubah.”“Pa Zubah is always happy and ready to serve his bosses and fellow employees in carrying out their personal errands. This decision by the administration to honor him is highly welcomed by everyone working in the ministry,” Samuel G. Barjibo, head of communication, said.Samuel A. Wlue, Minister of Transport, said one does not have to be minister before serving others, “but once you are charged with the responsibility to serve, then do your best ever so that one day, when you leave, those leaving behind can speak good about your deeds.”According to Mr. Wlue, the commitment and dedication of Mr. Zubah will enable history and prosperity to recognize him and other individuals.Mr. Wlue named the Transport Ministry banking hall in honor of John Zubah for his dedication and commitment to duty over the years.“Thanks you, Mr. Zubah, for teaching us dedication and commitment in a working environment. We also want to thank your family for ensuring that you come and care for us,” Mr. Wlue said.Meanwhile, Mr. Wlue also named the banking hall in honor of John Zubah for his dedication and commitment to duty over the years.“I am grateful to cross Pa Zubah’s path. When the history is written of this ministry, Mr. Zubah hands and footprint will be highlighted, because my plan here is to impact at least one person’s life every day,” Mr. Wlue said.In March 2018, “Pa Zubah” was transferred to the security division as security officer due to the current lack of assigned vehicle to the Assistant Minister for Administration and Insurance. According to management, the decision to transfer Mr. Zubah was to keep him active on duty.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tackling South Africa’s education challenges

first_imgRay Maota Bechet High School, in Durban, is oneof the schools that have been part ofthe project with Anthony Golding fromMetso Automation as its PfP. Dr Louise van Rhyn, founder and CEOof Symphonia, was the PfP atKannemeyer Primary School in GrassyPark, Cape Town.(Images: Symphonia of South Africa)MEDIA CONTACTS• James [email protected] Project Manager+27 21 786 2627/ +27 84 824 6832RELATED ARTICLES• Zuma: SA to meet 2015 education goal• Can drive raises R8.5m for education• Education focus of Mandela Day 2010• Teacher laptops to enhance educationIndustry and community leaders have been called on to become partners in the School at the Centre of Community project ([email protected]), which aims to tackle educational challenges in South Africa.The project is an initiative of Symphonia for South Africa, a company focused on developing leadership skills and the capacity of leaders in the [email protected] project manager James Eckley said: “Business and community leaders are not asked to just give money to schools to solve educational challenges, but are asked to be actively involved in seeking solutions.”The project came about when Louise van Rhyn, founder and CEO of Symphonia, looked at the challenges facing disadvantaged schools in South Africa and realised that education has to be a national priority, not just for government.The cost of participating in the year-long leadership and educational programme is R30 000 (US$4 000) and covers the cost of training sessions, coaching and support for the school.This could be paid for by the participant’s employer or a sponsoring organisation.Participation is not limited to business leaders – ordinary people who feel passionate about a school can also take part if they have the funds.The cost covers leadership courses for the participating individual and the chosen school’s principal, and community engagement programmes and seminars that address ways the school and the community can work together to get the best results out of their pupils.Brian O’Connell, rector and vice-chancellor at the University of the Western Cape, said: “It is clear that we all underestimate just how deeply our history has hurt people and institutions, but if our country is to have any chance of transcending that hurt and if our people are to take full ownership of our future, then our schools must lead the way.”O’Connell is one of the [email protected] project endorsers.Partners for possibilityCommunity and business leaders are urged to use their experiences and connections when they partner with principals of their desired school. It is hoped that this will help identify community projects that benefit both the school and surrounding community.Leaders will take up the role of Partner for Possibility (PfP). This is not a mentorship role, but rather becoming a “thinking partner” of the school’s principal, helping him or her find suitable solutions for the school and community’s challenges.Dr Louise van Rhyn, founder and CEO of Symphonia, said: “”Being Ridwan’s partner was without any doubt the most powerful leadership development experience that I have ever participated in. It was, for me, more powerful than doing an MBA or a Doctorate.”Van Rhyn was the PfP at Kannemeyer Primary School in Grassy Park, in the southern suburbs of Cape Town. The school principal is Ridwan Samodien.Van Rhyn added that being the PfP taught her valuable lessons about a community she was detached from. “If all industry leaders were to experience this, it would be the beginning of the strengthening of South Africa’s societal fabric,” she said.Activities for each school and community will be unique to the needs of both parties.“[email protected] appeals to all South Africans to become citizens and to become actively involved in the education of our children. Education is the key to securing a bright future for all our children,” said Samodien.Schools already part of the initiativeThere are already a number of schools and communities that have already benefited from this project.There are nine schools in Cape Town, four in Durban and 10 in Johannesburg.These include John Ramsay in Bishop Lavis, Cape Town; Rippon Road Primary in Sydenham, Durban; and Bovet Primary in Alexandra, Johannesburg.Sanlam, Nedbank Business Banking, Metropolitan Foundation, Aurecon, Hollard, Murray & Roberts and Gijima People Development are some of the companies involved in the project.Benefits of the [email protected] from the organisation sponsoring the PfP, to the PfP, the school, pupils, and principal gain something from the projectThe school will particularly benefit from the exposure to the company sponsoring the PfP.Eckley said: “The PfPs spend a year working with the school and most cannot detach themselves from the school after that. Most of them stay on as the company usually ends up investing in infrastructure development at the school or sponsoring school events.”Due to increased involvement from parents, the community and teachers, pupils usually become more proactive in their studies.A principal’s job of running a school is also made easier as he or she is able to identify what it is the pupils and community need to make the institution more effective.Through greater participation in the school’s activities, the surrounding community gains a sense of belonging and relationships between individuals improve.PfPs and the organisations they represent will learn a lot about themselves and their problem-solving capabilities outside their usual environment.last_img read more

South Africa’s musos dish on being a woman in music

first_imgIt’s tough being a woman in any industry; women are treated differently and some say they need to work twice as hard. Singers like Toya Delazy speak about the women who inspired them, and share their experiences in the music industry. Zanne Stapelberg says Sibongile Khumalo, a musician from Soweto inspired her to be versatile in her career. (Image: Supplied) • South African foodies cooking up a storm • For women, by women – Pink Taxi Egypt • Celebrating 60 years of the Women’s Charter • Maasai women lead solar revolution in Kenya • Powerful women shape Africa Melissa Javan Being a woman in the music industry is no different from being a woman in other industries, according to South African women in the field. Many of them agree it is challenging, and that men are treated differently, but that has not chased them from following their dreams of making it on stage.In years gone by, Miriam Makeba, Brenda Fassie and Yvonne Chaka Chaka were among those who carried the torch for women in South Africa’s music industry. Now artists such as Karen Zoid, Lira, Zolani Mahola and Yolande Visser are making a name for themselves on the national and international music scene.For Zanne Stapelberg, a Cape Town-born classical singer and producer, your dreams will be achieved if you are passionate and work hard enough. In celebration of Women’s Month, Stapelberg and several other female artists spoke about who inspired them to follow music as a career, as well as what it was like to be a woman in the industry.Stapelberg became a member of the Cape Town Opera Studio in 2000. At the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in 2014, one critic lauded her as a “national treasure”. Her awards include the Kanna Award for Best Classical Production at the 2014 Klein Karoo National Arts Festival, with the Odeion String Quartet.She was inspired by Sibongile Khumalo’s versatility, Stapelberg said. “She [Khumalo] is a formidable opera singer, but has also established herself as a remarkable jazz singer. She has shifted and redefined the boundaries of what it means to be a singer.”Inspired by this, Stapelberg had never been able to classify herself as an artist who sang just one genre. “[Khumalo] made it possible for me to believe that I could be more than just one thing.”This mother of three did not think of herself as a woman in the music industry, she admitted. “I think of myself as an artist. And being an artist is both extremely fulfilling and very difficult. I produce, write, teach and perform. I have managed to create a living for myself through freelance work.”Toya Delazy – named Latoya Nontokozo Buthelezi by her parents – said musicians such as Lebo Mathosa, Nhlanhla Ncinza of Mafikizolo and Fassie inspired her to pursue a career in music. Toya Delazy says she does not conform to the entertainment industry’s stereotypes and that has made her successful thus far. (Image: Facebook) Delazy was nominated for the Best Female Southern Africa award in the 2014 African Muzik Magazine Awards as well as for Music Video of the Year for Memoriam at the South African Music Awards (SAMAs). A year earlier, she won three SAMAs: Newcomer of the Year, Best Pop Album, and Best Producer.A singer, pianist, dancer and performer from KwaZulu-Natal, she said women had to work twice as hard as men in the industry. There were sectors, for example hip-hop, where women did not get much exposure. “When you look at the female emcees, no one is giving them [the] support that the males are getting. It’s hard work for a chick out there. I guess I stand tall, because we have accepted the challenge to prove the contrary,” Delazy said.She decided not to change herself to suit the industry’s stereotypes, she added. “The industry tends to take a sexual approach – entertainment wise – when it comes to women. I took us off the car bonnets and used the artistry to communicate my view on a better life filled with dreams, which eventually became reality.“I kept real to myself and owned my style. I didn’t compromise to fit into an industry that is created to entertain men.”Josie Field, a Johannesburg-born singer and songwriter, pointed to Claire Johnston and her band Mango Groove as her inspiration. “Growing up, I admired her voice, Mango Groove’s songs and sound. The band was amazing and their songs are world class. Josie Field says though women are always treated different to men in careers, the advice is to stay true to who you are. (Image: Facebook)“It was amazing to hear a South African woman and her band making world-class hit songs.”Over nine years in the business, Field has released four albums and received six SAMA nominations by 2012, including Best Female Artist. Her first album, Mercy, was released in 2006.She was not fazed by the fact that women were treated differently in any career field, she said. “It’s great being a female artist in this country. Musically there are always more men involved than women, but I love it.”About being treated differently as a woman – whether good or bad – her advice was: “It’s easy to handle. You just remain true to yourself and keep other people’s issues at arm’s length.”last_img read more
