Five life lessons from Edward Filene, father of the credit union movement

first_img continue reading » The other day, I was reading through the website of one of Zogo’s partners when a particular quote caught my eye. It read something like this:“As Edward A. Filene, father of the credit union movement, once said, “A credit union is an educational institution.” Well put, I thought — but I had no idea who this “father of the credit union movement” was.One Google search later, I was deeply entrenched in the life story of Edward Filene, the twentieth century businessman and philanthropist who helped launch credit unions across America.The fact that thousands of financial institutions across the country can trace their existence back to one man’s influence is pretty interesting already. But when I found out this guy was advocating for equal wages and progressive banking before the Model T hit the highway? I knew this was a blog post in the making. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_img StumbleUpon Kambi takes control of Churchill Downs BetAmerica sportsbook August 28, 2020 Kambi and DraftKings agree on final closure terms July 24, 2020 Sports betting solutions provider SBTech has added to its range of in-play products with the launch of Action Betting, a mobile-first feature which dynamically suggests markets of interest to players through contextual alerts and call-to-action betting options.Powered by SBTech’s machine learning algorithm, Action Betting creates instant notifications when a specific incident occurs in a match, whether this is a free kick, red or yellow card, corner or dangerous attack. A dynamic market is then displayed on-screen, enabling players to ‘quickbet’ on outcomes directly from the widget, with the selection added to the bet slip instantaneously.Ian Bradley, Chief Product Officer at SBTech, commented: “Action Betting is the result of our investment in personalisation, as we seek to tailor the experience for each user. The constant drive to create more markets is not going to stop, and given the challenges that brings, our aim is to enhance the UX, ensuring players don’t have to scroll and search for markets. “Instead, we offer them suggestions whenever a significant incident occurs, presenting them with a relevant market in the context of the alert. The launch of Action Betting is part of our strategy of continuously improving the mobile betting experience and is just a taste of what we have in store for our partners in 2018.”  Action Betting is live with partners from this month and is part of the continuous development process undertaken by SBTech and its clients. The launch follows on from SBTech being awarded the Sportsbook Supplier of the Year at last week’s SBC awards, something that Group Commercial Officer Andrew Cochrane described as “a testament to the staff and people at SBTech in their pursuit of technology excellence.” Related Articles Share Submit Delasport clients get access to Kiron’s BetMan RGS platform April 27, 2020 Sharelast_img read more
