Amanda Saunders reminds marketers how important it is to put an early warning system in place to put out potential fires that might result from ignoring your customer’s needs. Every customer need unmet is a threat to a potential up-sell. Data-driven alerts permit you to become far more proactive in managing your customers.

Where employees spend their time on the Web

By Gene Krause on Mar 23, 2015 8:15:30 AM

At a glance, Liam McIvor Martin has provided the world with some critical information about how and where employees spend their time on the Web. Keep in mind that the keyword is ‘employees’. What it may indicate is that the most used website (Google Docs) and the most used app (Skype) are tools that people use to communicate fast and effectively. They’re also free, and that’s good.

By Gene Krause on Mar 2, 2015 8:00:01 AM

From a previous post we have already covered exactly what an ACH is and the raw flow between a business and the banks. So what is Processing of ACH Payments? First let's quickly re-examine the role the banks play; specifically as it relates to technology. NACHA  governs the ACH network, including providing the specific NACHA file format that banks must use when submitting batch files to one of the ACH operators.

What is a Merchant Account?

By Gene Krause on Feb 23, 2015 8:10:43 AM
