We’ve grown quite quickly because we know students, we know what they’re looking for and the types of property that appeal to them better than anyone else.”Harry Conti Marcus Askam-Yates Student Housing June 7, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

4 steps to ensure your CU profits in the post-apocalyptic community retail economy

first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jon Ungerland Jon Ungerland believes the core philosophy underlying credit unions is the plausible and sustainable model for preserving healthy financial institutions and promoting financially dignified and strong communities in the 21st … Web: www.dalandsolutions.com Details Retailers (physical retail stores) are struggling.   Nevertheless, it seems the trend to ‘reimagine’ the credit union and financial institution ‘branch’ as a “retail experience” is picking up steam.At DaLand CUSO, we think this makes sense; and we think it’s a promising trend. However, not because it’s what Capital One is doing with the “café” concept.Here are a few things credit unions could be doing to capitalize on a coming tidal change in community commerce and consumer behavior:Centralize data in a modern, extensible core (p.s. this is what all those disrupting fintechs and mega players are doing … and it’s why we incessantly talk about this as step one to relevance).Get intentional and intense about controlling consumer data and becoming a trusted data custodian in your community.Use your centralized and controlled data to deliver relevant, modern, digital experiences to consumers and merchants in your community: i.e. become a community commerce hub built and extended from your data.Anticipate a turn in the tide of the retail players and paradigms, and prepare to offer digital experiences to support digital payments, digital kiosks, bridging of brick-and-mortar to digital, and self-service commerce solutions to community businesses and community merchants filling the void left by the dying big-box mafia in the post-retail-apocalypse world. What do we mean by retail apocalypse?  Here’s a quick tour of the present turmoil and resultant fertile soil for financial institutions on the other side of the ongoing toppling of the megalithic retailers.It seems we can’t go a week without another article about the early casualties in the anticipated retail apocalypse.  Iconic institutions and once beloved brick-and-mortar bastions are declaring bankruptcy and bailing on physical locations at (what should be) an alarming rate.Is it Amazon’s fault?Is online shopping the eventuality for all retail experiences – including retail financial services?Will I be forced to live in a future where I’m denied the opportunity to try on my latest kicks (shoes) at DSW before buying them (from Amazon!)?Regardless the cause or abundant conjecture around social/ethical/economic cost of the shift to purely digital consumption and distribution, the facts are clear: Americans love shopping online, and they’re doing a lot of it.   It’d be odd to presume the results from this 4thQuarter high holy season of shopping and consumption will be any different than the pattern of previous years.The resulting dynamic is that we get to witness an epic capitalist battle between the titans of digital distribution (Amazon, Google, eBay, etc.) and behemoth big-box stores as they duke it out over digital vs. direct consumer experiences.  Evidence seems to mount each quarter that big-box stores will either adapt (like WalMart and Target) or die.When the current “retail apocalypse” trend of 2019 continues in to 2020 and beyond, what will be our lot and fortune (as communities and community financial institutions), other than an abundance of baron beige buildings anchoring prime real-estate location in countless strip malls nationwide?Human behavior is predictably patterned.  Our desires are, in the end, quite simple.  More than likely, when 4th2019 quarter retail figures pour in this coming January, market data will demonstrate our economy and society are very close to pushing the pendulum too far in the direction towards over-saturation and excessive satisfaction of our rampant desire for online consumerism and same-day delivery.  It wouldn’t be the least bit surprising to start to hear murmurs in early 2020 about the end of Amazon, Apple, eBay, etc. In fact, for even the most remotely open and imaginative mind, it’s relatively easy to envision a future where consumers become aware of haunting void; a not-so-distant past where we escaped from Netflix and NFL to spend our weekends touching physical objects and envisioning better versions of ourselves in dressing room mirrors!Sure, we may be a couple years away from the pendulum starting to swing back towards brick-and-mortar.  So, that means your financial institution should have plenty of time to prepare for the change in tide, that is if you start developing and deploying a strategy now!How might that strategy look?  Well, it could start with using technology and data to extend digital experiences to your consumers, driven directly from your core data (your most potent understanding of your consumer and community), as a means to build a bridge back into your brick-and-mortar retail locations.Better yet, a strategy for the post-apocalyptic retail landscape could begin with community financial institutions getting serious about controlling data, and centralizing data, as a means of being prepared to more profitably and proficiently engage local consumers and add value to community businesses.On the topic of community businesses, in the post-retail-apocalypse fallout, local merchants and retailers are likely to be the seeds of civilization which community financial institutions should plan to ‘water’ as we work to re-grow Main Streets and mercantilism in the 21stCentury.  How else will we thwart the inevitable fiscal fascism of totally centralized and conglomerated financial services markets?If the present moment contains the seeds of an opposite and emerging complimentary moment, like the ancient wisdom of the Yin and Yang might teach us, then credit union execs and technologist should anticipate an emergence of local boutiques, merchants, service providers, etc., looking for someone to provide them digital experiences for payments, online ordering, scheduling, order-ahead, etc.;and your credit union could plug these players into relevance-generating and brick-and-mortar enhancing digital consumer and commercial banking experiences.Or, we could just sit around and lament Google and Citi teaming up to launch a checking account in 2020, and plan to watch our capital evaporate around us while local entrepreneurs and merchants desperately wander a desolate community business landscape looking for willing partners to help them fill a developing niche in the hearts of local consumers.Fortunately, your friends at DaLand CUSO have strategic solutions to help you achieve all of the above via our simple partnership process, that is if you’re serious about using your modern core to cement your credit union’s position of relevance in the community – regardless the tumult of the times.Happy holidays…last_img read more

Yobo doesn’t need coaching experience to be on Eagles bench — Bosso

first_imgRelatedPosts Rohr lists Musa, Ekong, 23 others for Cote d’Ivoire, Tunisia friendlies Super Eagles soar on FIFA ranking FIFA ranking: Nigeria moves up by two spots, now world 29th Ladan Bosso, President of the Nigeria Football Coaches Association, says former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, does not need coaching experience to succeed as Super Eagles Assistant coach. Bosso made the assertion against the backdrop of raging criticism trailing the Nigeria Football Federation’s recent appointment of Yobo as replacement for Imama Amapakabo, an assistant coach of the Super Eagles. Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Abuja, Bosso maintained that Yobo’s experience as a player and knowledge of the game would come even as he learns on the job. He said: “Most of the Super Eagles players basically are based in Europe. “He is used to those places. “The Super Eagles players on ground will also give him respect because he’s an ex-international and has captained the team.” Bosso said three basic criteria were required before appointing a national team coach: playing experience, certification and work experience, adding that Yobo ticks the first two boxes. According to him, there is no much coaching required at the Super Eagles level, but more of coordinating, tactics and management of players. He said: “I can tell you that at the Super Eagles level, there is no much coaching. “It’s mainly coordinating, tactics and management of players unlike in the age-grade teams.” The former U-20 national coach called on fans and football stakeholders to support the Super Eagles technical crew led by Gernot Rohr as they seek to turn around the team. NAN reports that Yobo, 39, had 101 caps for the Super Eagles and featured in three World Cups and six Africa Cup of Nations tournaments before retiring in 2014.Tags: Africa Cup of NationsGernot RohrImama AmapakaboJoseph YoboLadan BossoNigeria Football Coaches AssociationNigeria Football FederationSuper EaglesWorld Cuplast_img read more

When it comes to NFL Coach of the Year, stop trying to derail Coach Tomlin (Jan. 8)

first_imgAccording to phrases.org.uk, the phrase Admiral Horatio Nelson is supposed to have said was, “turn a blind eye,” when he willfully disobeyed a signal to withdraw during a naval engagement.The British fleet of the day was commanded by Admiral Sir Hyde Parker. The two men disagreed over tactics and at one point Parker sent a signal (by the use of flags) for Nelson to disengage. Nelson was convinced he could win if he persisted and that’s when he coined the phrase ‘turned a blind eye’.“You know, Foley,” he supposedly told one of his subordinates, “I have only one eye—and I have a right to be blind sometimes… I really do not see the signal.”Let’s talk about the NFL Coach of the Year Award. The honor is supposedly awarded to the coach who does the most to give his team a chance to win. Well let’s take a look at how the award has been handed out over the years and question the legitimacy of the reward. From 1955 to 1959 there was only the NFL so the first five awards were to NFL (now the NFC) coaches. When the AFL (now mostly the AFC) was formed there were two Coach of the Year awards, one for the NFL and the AFL. That practice continued until 1997 when it was determined that only one award be given to the best coach of the combined NFC and AFC. Ray Rhodes was the first Black coach to win the award as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1995, approximately 40 years after the award was created. It would take until 2005 for another Black coach to win the award. That would be Lovie Smith, the head coach of the Chicago Bears. Marvin Lewis, the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals, would snag the award in 2009.Ron Rivera, the head coach of the Carolina Panthers, would win the award in 2013 and 2015. Mike Tomlin, the head coach of the Steelers, has been mentioned by many of the national sports pundits have openly advocated for Tomlin to receive the honor. However, many of the “talking heads in the Steelers market have quietly and openly fought against the suggestion of Tomlin receiving any accolades regarding the 2019 season. The Pittsburgh media has tried and continue to derail the “Tomlin award” and they seem to hate even hearing his name when it comes to receiving any accolades at all.Steel town pollution monger John Steigerwald had this to say about the coaching effort of Mike Tomlin. “Sorry, Mike Tomlin, but John Harbaugh is NFL Coach of the Year. You deserved serious consideration when your Pittsburgh Steelers somehow were in position to get into the playoffs after losing Ben Roethlisberger for the season and having to deal with so many injuries to other key players along the way. Imagine how much it would have hurt if the Steelers managed to beat the Ravens’ JV team in Baltimore. If it makes you feel any better, even if you had gotten the Steelers to the playoffs, you would have been no better than the second-best coach of the year.”Talk about turning a blind eye; many of these media types continue gushing with praise and it seems as if they still idolize carrying and washing the cheating stained jockstrap of Bill Belichick, who they still voted for Coach of the Year in 2007 and 2010 after being exposed as a continual and pathological cheater. The award has only been awarded six times to minority coaches since 1955. The folks that vote for the award are not only blind, they are deaf, dumb and racially insensitive.by Aubrey Bruce, For New Pittsburgh Courierlast_img read more
