Digital consumers forced to open accounts in branches

first_imgStudy after study have revealed that consumers are abandoning new account opening processes because of frustration with poorly designed online and mobile applications. The challenges range from asking for too much information, to not being able to complete the entire process using a single digital channel.In one study, it was found that 40% of all online applications that consumers start never get finished. What’s worse, those who applied for a product in the last 12 months digitally were found to have abandoned the process significantly more than those who last applied more than a year ago (45% vs. 26%) … indicating an increasing lack of patience.DBR 243 Cover 180x234You would think this would prompt progressive financial institutions to quickly respond to this opportunity by improving online and mobile account opening processes, capturing new business from these frustrated consumers. Unfortunately, research indicates that this call to action is being ignored, impacting customer satisfaction and, more importantly, account opening metrics.In an extensive research report, ‘State of the Digital Customer Journey,’ sponsored by Kofax, it becomes clear that the industry is falling significantly behind consumer expectations for offering a seamless digital account opening process. Not only does the research find that the majority of banks and credit unions do not provide an online or mobile new account opening option, but even those that do provide these options require branch-based engagement to complete the process. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Women of Troy hit the road once again

first_imgUSC women’s volleyball head coach Mick Haley constantly emphasizes the importance of traveling well. It is no secret in the world of sport that success is hardest to achieve away from the friendly confines of home. The Women of Troy will be tested in that respect early and often this season, and if the team’s performance in last weekend’s season-opening tournament is any indication, those wins might not be so difficult to earn after all.Back for more · After missing part of last season due to an injury, junior middle blocker Hannah Schraer (14) is healthy again and hopes to better her impressive freshman year numbers (1.75 kills per set, .383 hitting percentage). – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanThe opening tournament went swimmingly for the Women of Troy, who received stellar contributions from all parts of their lineup in a 3-0 sweep last weekend. After a 3-1 defeat of Purdue in the season’s first match, the club recorded back-to-back sweeps of Western Kentucky and Alabama A&M to win their first pre-conference tournament of the 2013 campaign.USC will now hit the road for the second of three consecutive weekends, traveling to the Midwest to participate in the Marquette Challenge. The squad will open with a Friday doubleheader against TCU and Marquette, followed by a Saturday trip to DeKalb, Ill. to face off against Northern Illinois.“I think we can be pretty good. We did some things that we’ve been practicing, which is encouraging because [that means] we’re doing a good job teaching,” Haley said. “I got to play a lot of players, and we had two very good matches against Western Kentucky and Purdue, both ranked teams.”Fittingly, a highly touted member of USC’s latest youth movement paved the way in the opening match. Freshman outside hitter Ebony Nwanebu recorded a team-high 15 kills and eight blocks in a stellar debut performance.“Since this was my first tournament, I really wanted to come out and make a statement,” Nwanebu said. “Everyone on the team has been supportive, so that has helped a lot with my confidence.”Nwanebu teamed up with sophomore standout Samantha Bricio in the next match, as the two combined for 22 kills to pace USC’s attack. Haley’s decision to play his freshmen paid off, as outsider hitter Elise Ruddins notched eight kills on 14 swings and setter Alice Pizzasegola had 19 assists to complement junior Hayley Crone’s 20.“I think Ebony performed very well, as did all of our freshmen, for their first tournament,” Haley said. “Ebony had a lot of responsibility and started playing well in the heat of the competition. She showed that she likes to compete and she brought some heat. I’d like to see her blocking and defense get better, but she’s good enough to be a six-rotation player, and that’s our goal for her.”The Women of Troy concluded the tournament with a dominant performance against Alabama A&M, as Bricio received her third career tournament MVP nod and joined Nwanebu and senior libero and captain Natalie Hagglund on the all-tournament team. Haley rotated all three of his freshman liberos, as newcomers Anne Marie Schmidt and Kelly Wimmer saw their first taste of collegiate action.“We still have some questions as to where we need to really spend our work,” Haley said. “We got some good blocking, but I don’t think we passed as well as we’re capable of, and we certainly made way too many service errors. We’re working on some things with the serving and trying to get the new kids comfortable.”Junior outside hitter Emily Young, who saw action in the first and third matches, praised the team’s performance but also noted the importance of redirecting focus to the upcoming tournament.“It was an excellent opening tournament for our team, and I think it was a great opportunity for us to test what we’ve been working on,” Young said. “But [Haley] is always looking toward the next game, so we can celebrate our win in the moment but we know we have worthy opponents to play.” Follow us on Twitter @dailytrojanlast_img read more

EDDIE D. STAKES QUOTES (DIVISION 1/SEPTEMBER 30, 2016)

first_imgPAMELA ZIEBARTH, OWNER/BREEDER AMBITIOUS BREW, WINNER: “This win really means a lot. Eddie (Delahoussaye) rode Cee’s Tizzy for my mom and she loved him. We were second in this race two years ago and I remember that I ran into Eddie at the (City of Arcadia) Walk of Fame and he told me that he wished we had won.” JOCKEY QUOTES MIKE SMITH, AMBITIOUS BREW, WINNER: “He warmed up well; was cool, calm and alert. He jumped out of the gate well, I was in a great spot from the word ‘go’ and able to get to the outside smoothly, without losing any ground. I’ve been blessed to ride him a lot and win on him a few times, but I have to say that this is his best race, by far. If I can get him to do that coming down the hill at Breeders’ Cup, that would be awesome.VICTOR ESPINOZA, RICHARD’S BOY, SECOND: “He ran great but he just got a little tired at the end. He should run better next time.”             MARTY JONES, AMBITIOUS BREW, WINNER: “He loves the hill and he trains like it. We know he’s good and he’s a professional. I was a little nervous in the stretch, but Mike had him in a great spot.” TRAINER QUOTESlast_img read more
