The importance of a company’s mission statement should not be underestimated. It clearly identifies for stakeholders what the company intends to do with its resources.
I’ve participated in more fraud-related webinars in the past 8 weeks than the total number of trade shows I have attended in the last 8 years. The countless number of webinars solidifies what we (Panini) already know about fraud; the data and growth rates are simply staggering.
Today it’s important for financial institutions to partner with an instant issuance provider that has an integrated platform and flexible launch options of either contactless or EMV. Panini’s Instant Issuing solutions provide a streamlined user platform with both payment technology platforms.
I know I'm "old school," but whatever happened to having REAL communications with the people you're attempting to develop relationships with (including your colleagues)?
I've been working from a home office at least part of the time for most of my career. I've found some things work well, and other things not so well - for me, at least. I've found that some roles are better suited to working from home, just as some people are (and some are not). With the urgent need for disciplined social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19, I thought I'd share a few tips I've accumulated over the years. Here goes, in no particular order!

Has it really been 125 days since I joined Panini? Time does fly when you’re having fun!
Panini, known for innovation and thought leadership, certainly has demonstrated those important industry roles. At a time when financial institutions are striving to leverage technology to reduce operating costs, to build infrastructure to reduce fraud and risk, and to plan for the next generation of banking, Panini met the need with very exciting technology and a suite of value-driving services. And I was lucky enough to be a part of it all!
This April will mark my first full year as the Channel Marketing Manager at Panini! It has been an exciting first year so far working with the Panini team and our partners as a part of this new chapter.

A few years ago, I wrote an article discussing the very slow arrival of branch transformation within the North American financial services market. I have almost 40 years of experience selling to the banking industry and throughout that entire time span, banks have been talking about the branch of the future and need to improve the interaction with clients within the bank branch.
Some time ago I read this article and couldn’t help but let it guide me since, just as its author, I too work in Human Resources and, for a few years, I have been a runner. For my overseas friends, the text is in Italian and so let me try to provide a summary, also adding my personal opinion on its subject.
I admit to being obsessed with efficiency. If I am efficient, I can accomplish more in less time and with fewer resources. If I am not efficient, with a rigorous commitment to continuously becoming more efficient, I simply cannot keep up. This is what makes efficiency a critical skill and practice in business and life.
I would like to connect this post to Robert’s “Consistently Great Service is Consistently Great for Business!” – representing the dark (reverse) side of this very true statement...how not to treat a customer.
Meetings, budgets, margins, email, quotas, customer needs, pipelines, meetings, conference calls, training, deadlines, meetings, competitor pressures, business travel, reports, proposals…and did I mention meetings? All in a day’s work, right?
