Ray Graber presents for Tlado Online a webinar on credit card surcharging

Surcharging had been historically prohibited in the U.S. per the networks' merchant rules, as well as prohibited by law in 10 states. Any state laws will continue to "trump" networks' merchant rules. The recent changes in surcharging law could not only affect your merchant processing transactions but also your credit card usage. The worst thing end-user organizations can do is to have an uninformed reaction to surcharging.

Cyber Currency − What is it, How does it Work, and What about Regulations?

5/16/18

Ray Graber presents for Tlado Online

If 2017 was the year of the ICO, it seems as if 2018 is destined to become the year of regulatory reckoning. Things have already begun to heat up as countries around the world grapple with cryptocurrencies and try to determine how they are going to treat them. Some are welcoming, others are cautious. And some countries are downright antagonistic. Here is a brief overview of how 15 countries/unions from various regions are treating cryptocurrency regulations.

Bitcoins have gotten much more traction than early detractors and pundits expected. With that reality, what do banks need to do, if anything, to prepare for their existence and surprising acceptance? This session will present the fundamental workings of virtual currencies with an emphasis on bitcoin and the current state of the regulatory front. We will get your thinking caps energized as to how bankers might approach virtual currencies and some thoughts about what the future might hold for bitcoin. It appears that Bitcoin and blockchain are here to stay − what does that mean to your institution? Banks are pumping huge amounts of money into systems designed to prevent money laundering, but the blockchain could help by recording each leg of a transaction, making its ultimate destination easier to trace. Once you understand the fundamentals, you will be able to determine what this means to your institution.

Refining the Customer Experience: The Importance of Marketing Beyond Customer Engagement

Session Description:

The customer experience is so much more than selling; it’s about feeling heard, getting answers to questions, having problems fixed, and feeling a connection to your brand. Marketing and customer service groups need to be thinking in terms of customer engagement.

Because our customers live in a 24/7 world they expect their suppliers to anticipate and meet their needs in real time, e.g. Amazon. For marketing professionals, this means that the separation between customer service and marketing is getting smaller and smaller.

Customer engagement is about encouraging your customers to interact and share in the experiences you create for them as their financial institution. With a well-executed customer engagement strategy you will nurture brand loyalty and customer growth.

The end game is creating value by focusing on customer engagement and not cross-selling. You must give people something meaningful - beyond a sales pitch. A well-developed, all-inclusive customer experience that includes great content, or interactive, real-time customer support.
