System integrations the COO will love

first_img 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr COOs are continually seeking these four things:Improved member serviceImproved processesImproved efficiencyEngaged staffTo accomplish these goals they require new software, tools, applications, employee interfaces and a continual stream of real-time member information and channel reporting. These tools and applications typically require integration into core or vendor to vendor.Here is what we know…These new tools and applications are put into a development queue with the vendor, core processor and/or IT. In fact often all three of these parties involved in implanting and integrating new systems and software are involved and the queue line is very long. We know it doesn’t have to be that way. It is only that way because a single standard of integration has not been developed. Yes, it is that simple. continue reading »last_img read more

Monk relaxed over long-term future

first_img The 35-year-old former captain was handed the reins – for the “foreseeable future” – in February after chairman Huw Jenkins sacked Michael Laudrup, but says thus far he has not had talks about his future. After Swansea’s comfortable 3-0 win at home to Norwich on Saturday, Monk said it would be “great” to take his beloved Swans forward, but stressed he was not the kind to pester his chairman for a new deal. Press Association A first-half brace from Jonathan de Guzman and a clinical finish after the break from winger Wayne Routledge saw off the Canaries and lifted the Swans to 13th place, seven points clear of the relegation zone. Monk added: “I want to win every single game. I’ve told the boys in there, I don’t want to lose another game this season. “I don’t care what the points tally is. I’m not even focusing on that. We’re definitely not safe – I know that – but we need to get more wins. “That’s crucial and it’s important that we improve, keep pushing each other, keep that environment at the training ground and in the match days. “Everything’s built towards every single match that we’re playing and they (the players) realise how serious a position we’re in and that we need to do it to the end of the season in all the remaining matches.” Swansea interim manager Garry Monk has expressed his determination to earn the role on a permanent basis – but will not “chase” the board in pursuit of a long-term contract. “I have a very good relationship with all of them (the board) and I have a very good relationship with Huw, the chairman,” he said. “He knows what I do, he knows what I work like. I’m not going to go chasing anything, because I always feel if you’ve earned it, then you’ll get it. “If that’s to be, then great. If it’s not to be, then it means I haven’t earned it, so that’s the way I feel – that’s my principles. “I’ve always been like that as a player. I’ll be like that as a man as well – that’s how I live my life. “In terms of chasing the chairman and asking ‘are you going to sign me now? Have I got the job?’ No. I don’t do that. “I believe that if they think I’m good enough and I’ve earned the right, then it will be there for everyone to see.” Monk joined the Welsh outfit as a player in 2004 when they were in League Two, went on to make 226 appearances and become a fans’ favourite. Now in charge of his former team-mates, he is determined to end the season on a high, after a poor run of results was ended with Saturday’s emphatic win at the Liberty Satdium. last_img read more
