Using data to identify areas of improvement within your credit union

first_imgThe secret: peer analytics software that automates the benchmarking and also let a report be created as wanted. How do you stack up against your competitors? The question is blunt, answers may cause discomfort, but know this: there is no more direct way to measure the success or failings of a credit union than by taking a deep comparative dive into how it is performing against similar institutions.Even better: doing peer analytics may uncover growth strategies you need to pursue.Exactly where do you stand in asset quality, loan/deposit mix, default rates, and profits per member?  Smart computer tools put that information at your fingertips.Historically of course a credit union executive has waited for release of call report data by the regulator and used that as a way to benchmark against competitors. That was good, for its time. But there now are more pinpointed – and up to date – ways to do this benchmarking. continue reading »center_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Footballers can topple Armagh says former All Star Lacey

first_imgPeter Creedon’s men will get their league campaign underway this Sunday in their opening game in Division 3. They’ll travel to the Athletic Grounds to take on Armagh and Brian Lacey says the Tipp Seniors have the ability to defeat their Northern opponents. He said: “Kieran McGeeney’s teams are built around a defensive system and they’re very strong and aggressive and physical. But I think that’s one area where Tipperary could exploit them.  “I don’t think they [Armagh] have the forwards up front to put up huge scores against a team whereas Tipperary does have a lot of natural forwards.“If they can get a run at all against Armagh, Tipp have the scoring forwards  to actually put up a good score and come out with a victory up there.”Throw-in is at 2 o’clock on Sunday and Tipp FM will bring you full live coverage in association with Supermacs.last_img read more
