Jack Henry & Associates’ ProfitStars division has introduced Relationship Profitability Management (RPM) Reporting Services, which supports enhanced profitability reporting and analysis for credit unions and other financial institutions of all sizes.

RPM Reporting Services is an extension of ProfitStars’ RPM enterprise-wide profitability solution, which enables financial institutions to generate and manage profitability data in an integrated, automated environment.

This new service provides ongoing reporting and analysis of key performance indicators, including insights into customer/member, officer, and product profitability. It enables diverse financial institutions to leverage the proven benefits of the RPM platform without the traditional capital investments in hardware, software license agreements, and on-staff profitability experts.

“All financial institutions, regardless of their asset size or charter, typically generate the majority of their profits from a select group of customers,” says David Foss, president of ProfitStars. “The financial institutions that will weather the down economy and prosper during the next few years must pay careful, regular attention to the customers, officers, and products that contribute the most profitability.”

RPM Reporting Services extracts data from any core application system and uses business rules to appropriately allocate margin, credit risk, and expenses among customer accounts. Each quarter, financial institutions receive a set of 18 reports that document the profitability of customers/members, officers, and products.

This service also provides trend reporting on the institution’s current profitability situation with profitability improvements insights, and includes a quarterly presentation of these reports and findings by a ProfitStars profitability consultant.

ProfitStars recently launched its Budgeting and Profitability Online Knowledge Center to help financial institutions enhance their performance and assess the risks associated with budgeting and profitability. The microsite gives ProfitStars customers and prospects access to information to assess their current business objectives and develop strategies to improve operations, competitive advantages, and financial performance.

Great article! Unfortunately, most employees don’t feel valued or appreciated by their supervisors or employers. In fact, research has shown that the predominant reason team members quit their jobs is because they don’t feel valued. This is in spite of the fact that employee recognition programs have proliferated in the workplace – over 90% of all organizations in the U.S. has some form of employee recognition activities in place. But most employee recognition programs are viewed with skepticism and cynicism – because they aren’t viewed as being genuine in their communication of appreciation. Getting the “employee of the month” award, receiving a certificate of recognition, or a “Way to go, team!” email just don’t get the job done. How do you communicate authentic appreciation? We have found people have different ways that they want to be shown appreciation, and if you don’t communicate in the language of appreciation important to them, you essentially “miss the mark”. Additionally, employees need to receive recognition more than once a year at their performance review. Otherwise, they view the praise as “going through the motions”. A third component of authentic appreciation is that the communication has to be about them personally – not the department, not their group, but something they did. Finally, they have to believe that you mean what you say. How you treat them has to match the words you use. If you are not sure how your team members want to be shown appreciation, the Motivating By Appreciation Inventory (www.appreciationatwork.com/assess) will identify the language of appreciation and specific actions preferred by each employee. You then can create a group profile for your team, so everyone knows how to encourage one another. Remember, employees want to know that they are valued for what they contribute to the success of the organization. And communicating authentic appreciation in the ways they desire it can make the difference between keeping your quality team members or having a negative work environment that everyone wants to leave.
