Posted by Colin Savells on Wed, Mar 2, 2022

Net interest margin is a central measure of a financial institution’s long-term success and viability.

Is your communication with customers on par with your peers?

Posted by Joe Ehrhardt on Wed, Dec 15, 2021

Excellent customer communication is the pinnacle of community banking. However, a new precedent for speed and digital offerings for your commercial customers has been set since the onset of the Paycheck Protection Program. Will people want to go into a bank branch to apply for a commercial loan when they were able to carry out the entire PPP loan process digitally? Now that these digital expectations have been set, there’s no going back. Bankers can’t revert to doing things the same way they did before the pandemic. It’s just not an option.

Community Banking in 2021

Posted by Joe Ehrhardt on Wed, Jun 30, 2021

Community banks have always been good at creating lifetime customers, but evolving technology and customer demands can complicate your ability to satisfy customers post-pandemic. There is a running joke in the banking industry that the pandemic took five years of technology growth and pressed it into one. With the additional demands put on bankers by the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), that joke is one hundred percent true. Now that these digital expectations have been set, there’s no going back. Bankers can’t revert to doing things the same way they did before the pandemic. It’s just not an option.

An Affordable Way for Community Banks to Compete in Online Banking

Posted by Bethany Wood on Thu, May 13, 2021

The banking industry is completely changing (and fast!) due to this global pandemic. While banks are typically slow to adopt technological changes, the pandemic has accelerated this process by years. Digital offerings are not just conveniences anymore, but legitimate necessities for customers now. This adaptation can be more difficult for community banks with more limited resources than it is for large banks, but community banks still want to be players in the game.

Are Your Internal Workflows Holding You Back?

Posted by Teslar Software on Mon, Nov 2, 2020

The modern community banker is caught in the crossfires of remaining traditional and being expected to adapt to accommodate a new generation of customers.

Refining Your Bank’s Loan Review and Special Assets Processes for the Coming Economic Storm

Posted by Bethany Wood on Thu, Jul 23, 2020

Experts have been predicting a coming recession long before Coronavirus was on the world’s radar, but nobody was quite expecting the global health pandemic that is currently wreaking havoc on America’s economy. Current economic trends are being compared to those of The Great Recession of 2008. While there are some discrepancies between the two, this still leaves bankers with a little bit of an advantage in knowing what’s suspected to come— many loans are going to become criticized.

Women in Tech: An Interview with April Wolfe

Posted by Bethany Wood on Fri, Mar 6, 2020

Jobs in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields have grown faster than the overall growth of employment in the U.S. Since 1990, overall employment has grown 34 percent while STEM jobs have grown 79 percent, according to data from Pew Research Center.

Research by The National Center for Women & Information Technology shows that, as of 2018, 57 percent of professional occupations are held by women, but only 26 percent of the 17.3 million people working in these fields are women. Needless to say, women in tech are the minority. I had the opportunity to chat with April Wolfe, a member of our Install team at Teslar to talk a little bit about what it’s like to be a woman working in the technology field.
