New Zealand banks nail customer service

MEDIA RELEASE

New Zealand banks nail customer service

Auckland, 29 May 2017. Aussie banks lose out as New Zealand banks take top spots in customer service award.

In today’s fast moving world, good old fashioned customer service is still top of the wish list for Kiwis when it comes to rating their bank.

The latest study involving 2,412 Kiwis, from consumer research and ratings company Canstar Blue, reveals that it’s the banks that can provide the personal touch and deal with problems and enquiries efficiently, that win our hearts.

In order of ranking, the top three rated banks were TSB Bank, The Co-operative Bank and Kiwibank. TSB Bank was the only bank to achieve a maximum rating in all of the criteria evaluated.

Canstar Blue general manager Jose George comments:

“This is a huge feather in the caps for New Zealand banks. Daily headlines talk about interest rates and the latest banking apps yet making a customer feel valued and providing a service where they want, when they want it, is still proving to be the foundation of customer satisfaction.”

Retirement saving

The Canstar Blue survey also revealed that despite raging debates around an aging population, superannuation entitlement age and saving for retirement, nearly one quarter of us (22%) feel uncomfortable thinking about our long-term financial future and less than half of us (46%) are saving for retirement.

Jose George goes on to say:

“This is worrying insight. Thankfully there looks to be a huge reality check when we reach our thirties as we saw 61% of Gen Xers savings as opposed to 47% of Gen Yers. However, our survey also revealed that our younger generation is much better at sticking to a budget so it’s possible that lack of retirement saving in this age group is down to financial constraints rather than lack of awareness or desire.”

Satisfied customers

As the only bank to record a maximum rating across all of the evaluated criteria, we are pleased to announce that the 2017 award for Overall Customer Satisfaction goes to TSB Bank.

Accepting the award, Kevin Murphy CEO of TSB Bank comments:

“Being given this type of recognition is incredibly rewarding for our people. One of our values at TSB Bank is ‘putting people first’ and we strive to do this in every interaction and with every customer. An award like this shows us that our efforts are working and I’m very proud of our entire team for helping us to stand out a cut above the rest.”

BizDojo issues rally cry to founder community

BizDojo issues rally cry to founder community

Supporting New Zealand founders in their endeavours and in their lives

Hot on the heels of the government announcing a commitment of $372.8 million for Business Growth, New Zealand’s national coworking and collaboration operator BizDojo is rallying the private sector to support growth with their initiative Founders Central.

The initiative, which launches today out of BizDojo’s location in the heart of the innovation precinct GridAKL, comprises of an initial series of learning focussed experiments, designed to inform programs and activity that will be rolled out across New Zealand.

Co-founder of BizDojo, and one of the creators of Founders Central, Jonah Merchant says the strength of the project is in its founder-led basis, and focus on targeted solutions.

“Over the years we have been in the unique position of working hands-on growing our own business, while sitting side by side within a community of startups and entrepreneurs. We have seen gaps in the kind of support that is out there for founders and we are keen to do something about that, but we are not interested in shuffling the deck-chairs. We want Founders Central to be truly helpful to our founders community and complementary to the other great things happening now across the NZ ecosystem,” says Jonah.

“A big part of what we are doing in this starting phase is collecting data, experimenting with a solution, looking at the results and then iterating. We are applying a founder logic to the very solutions being crafted.”

Jonah and Co-Founder Nick Shewring decided to launch Founders Central after discussing the concept with BizDojo residents and other founders. The team surveyed the community on „issues relating to support for founders and entrepreneurs on their business journey. ” “We got some excellent feedback from the community. More than 37% of people wanted more appropriate resources, 20% of people called for increased openness and 12% found it confusing navigating the current landscape,” says Nick.

“Our vision is a New Zealand populated by empowered founders and supported by the innovation ecosystem. As New Zealand’s only national coworking provider, we see BizDojo playing a key role in achieving this. BizDojo is a place where founders come for support, guidance, connections and advice to help them and their businesses thrive.”

Founders Central is a rally cry for our vision of healthy, productive founders who are able to work through the stresses of entrepreneurship and creativity and come out the other side with both a successful business but also a successful life.

“We know the need is there, but we cannot do this alone, so we are calling on the ecosystem to help us. With time we can get programs running on our own dime, and we are committed to doing that – but a collaborative approach will mean faster deployment which will be better for everyone,” says Nick.

The current Founders Central initiatives includes education and mentoring around investment and business makeup with BizDojo investors-in-residence Greg Sitters and Ken Erskine, and a founder mental health and wellness project. BizDojo is also supporting ZeroPoint Ventures in its plan to help founders “build their business to the $1 million revenue mark within two years”.

ZeroPoint Ventures provides early-stage funding and coaching and early stage funding for ventures via a unique online business incubation model.

Dan Khan, founder of ZeroPoint Ventures, says BizDojo has been a massive supporter of early-stage entrepreneurs for many years and he is looking forward to working with BizDojo in this space.

“BizDojo has offered us venues and space for our ventures at their coworking spaces throughout the country, which is incredibly exciting for a distributed programme like ours.

BizDojo have been massive supporters of the early-stage entrepreneurial ecosystem from the very early days of supporting StartupWeekend where I first met Nick and the team.”

Founders Central launches today and more announcements around the project will be made as new programs roll out.

“As a country we encourage people to become their own bosses, to take on new challenges and to change the world around them. Our wish for Founders Central is that it will help founders on their journey and ensure they achieve the vision they’ve set for themselves,” says Nick.

Enquiries of interest are open for involvement in the initiative at Founderscentral.com ENDS

Rees takes stage win to earn overall lead in North West Youth Tour

Albion Cycling rider Oli Rees took a fine win at Lancaster to move himself into the overall lead in the Under 16s boys race of the North West Youth Tour.

The Tour concludes tomorrow with Rees giving himself a great opportunity to move up from his current fifth place in the British Cycling Youth Circuit Series.

Amelia Sharpe of Team RL360 IOM took the win and moved into the overall lead in the Under 16s Girls race to set the tour up for a thrilling final day.

There was a superb lone win for Hull Thursday RC’s Finley Pickering in the Under 14 Boys race which moved him into the overall lead in general classification.

And Imani Pereira-James of East Kilbride RC took a fine victory in the Under 14 Girls race, sprinting away on the final kick up to the line.

Under 16 Boys

Rees made his move towards the mid-race point to jump across to series leader Lewis Askey who had attacked on the Daisy Bank Climb a few laps previously.

The pair were joined by Adam Scarffe (Team RL360 IOM) and Tom Gloag (VC Londres).

Gloag had made an early move in the race and although he was caught, his attack triggered the high pace in the opening laps.

The quartet worked well together and soon began to distance themselves from the main field but just as the four began to establish themselves, Askey picked up a puncture and had to wait for a wheel, dropping the RST rider back down the field, his chance for the stage win all but over.

The remaining trio ploughed on but a big effort from Dylan Westley (Pedalsport CC) saw the leaders back to four-strong. Askey began to pull back time and was up to the chase group after three laps on the limit.

With 35 seconds to the good in the closing laps, the leaders looked as though they would hang on but the chasers began to rally, Joe Pidcock and Sam Watson (Chevin Cycles.com), Zach Bridges (Cardiff JIF) and Issac Peatfield (Green Jersey) looking most likely to chip away the time difference but it was to prove too big a gap to pull back.

Rees popped off the front of the lead group on the last lap to take the win, Scarf and Westley finishing second and third respectively, two seconds splitting the pair.

Rees was penalised 20 seconds for taking both hands off the bars as he celebrated his win.

Under 16 Girls

Sharpe was part of a group that wore down the race as the miles ticked by.

Tour favourites, Kate Wootton (Lee Valley Youth), Eluned King (Towy Riders), Ella Barnwell (Backstedt/Hotchillie) and Sharpe moved away on the opening few laps with Megan Panton (Woolwich CC) heading up the group on the climb but the severity wouldn’t allow anyone to break away.

The leaders stayed as one as the laps counted down, no one rider able to make any move that would affect the overall outcome.

It was the last time up the climb that would prove the turning point though, Sharpe having the legs to get a gap and take the win, Wootton and King sprinted for second and third respectively while Barnwell took the sprint for fourth.

Under 14 Boys

Pickering was part of a three-man break with Max Poole (Bike Box Alan) and Joe Kiely (Welwyn Wheelers CC) who attacked on the opening lap to get a handful of seconds on the main field.

An incident saw the race reduced by two laps but at the restart it was the same trio who saw the top of the climb before anyone else.

The gap to the now deteriorating main field was almost 30 seconds and it did seem like it would not reduce anytime soon but with three laps remaining Poole dropped off the pace and Pickering and Kiely pushed on.

The pair looked to have the race tied up but Josh Charlton (Hetton Hawks CC), Dan Vincent (Eastlands Velo) and Ben Bright (Marsh Tracks RT) began to work to try and bring the lead pair back.

Poole found his legs again but with two laps remaining Pickering attacked and no one could respond.

Bright and Charlton were beginning to nibble back some time on the front runners and on the final lap had picked off Kiely but the chase effort had taken its toll.

Pickering had too great a gap and crossed the line some 20 seconds ahead of Poole.

Charlton arguably had the best ride of the day to claim third and keep him in the running for the overall.

Under 14 Girls

Scot Pereira-James was part of a group that smashed the field apart on the opening lap and included Grace Lister (WWCC) who took second and Millie Cousins (PH-MAS/Paul Milnes/ Oldfields) who took the sprint for third from Flora Perkins (VC Londres) and Ella Maclean-Howell (Cardiff JIF).

The difference of ability in the field proved itself early on as the climb favoured the strong riders and as the lead group formed on the first lap the race was all but over for many.

The group of some 15 riders which included amongst others Laura Curle (BCDS) and Eva Young (Pedalpower RT) were uncatchable and they all but neutralised proceedings until the chequered flag.

Good news for Kiwis, continued job ad growth on SEEK

Good news for Kiwis, continued job ad growth on SEEK

The latest SEEK data has revealed there were 9.7 per cent new job ads on SEEK this April than the same period last year.

The industries across New Zealand offering the most job opportunities on SEEK, and their average advertised annual salaries this April were:

Information & Communication Technology [ICT] $93,111
Trades & Services $59,444
Manufacturing, Transport & Logistics $65,426

Across all industries this April, the average advertised annual salary on SEEK for New Zealand was $75,889.

AUCKLAND

“Of the major regions, Auckland enjoyed the largest job ad growth on SEEK this April, up 9.7 per cent y/y,” said Janet Faulding, General Manager for SEEK New Zealand.

Fuelling this growth were the following industries, which offered the subsequent average advertised annual salaries on SEEK:

Information & Communication Technology [ICT] $93,172
Manufacturing, Transport & Logistics $64,744
Administration & Office Support $52,191

“Across Auckland this April, the ICT industry again boasted the largest number of job opportunities on SEEK. The ICT fields with the greatest demand for workers were Development/Programming, Business System Analysts and Programme & Project Management,” Faulding said.

“The need for highly skilled ICT professionals is ever increasing to keep Kiwi’s digitally connected and competitive, and this demand is not isolated to just the IT sector. Currently on SEEK, ICT jobs are being advertised across many sectors, including Banking & Financial Services, Government and Retail,” Faulding continued

While off a low base, strong job ad growth on SEEK was seen in Auckland’s Advertising, Arts & Media industry this April, up 25 per cent y/y. The fields with greatest demand for workers throughout the industry were Agency Account Management [up 18 per cent y/y] and Journalism & Writing [up 16 per cent y/y].

“This is very encouraging news for people looking at working in the Advertising, Arts & Media industry, or those looking to develop their career in this sector. Opportunities on SEEK for this sector are a mix of internal and agency roles that require varying levels of experience, therefore appealing to a broad range of job seekers,” revealed Faulding.

CANTERBURY

“In the South Island, advertising on SEEK for Canterbury increased y/y for a second consecutive month, up 2.4 per cent y/y.

“This welcomed uplift across the region comes after job ad growth on SEEK was subdued since March 2015, which coincided with the earthquake rebuild slowing,” Faulding said.

The top industries for job opportunities across Canterbury this April, and their average annual advertised salaries were:

Trades & Services $60,141
Construction $95,867
Manufacturing, Transport & Logistics $61,030

“The most sought after Trades & Services professional across Canterbury this April were electricians, automotive mechanics & technicians, and builders. This reflects the skills the Canterbury population needs personally, such as getting their car serviced, or for residential and commercial projects, like construction,” said Faulding.

Despite being a small advertising industry on SEEK for Canterbury, strong job ad growth was recorded for theCommunity, Services & Development sector this April, up 39 per cent y/y.

The fields across the industry offering the largest number of employment prospects were;

o Child Welfare, Youth & Family Services

o Aged & Disability Services

“We don’t expect demand on SEEK to slow any time soon across for these frontline service roles, because as our population grows and ages so will our need for professionals in these fields,” Faulding said.

WELLINGTON

“In Wellington, new job ads on SEEK remained relatively flat this April [down 0.9 per cent y/y] after strong y/y growth in March [up 10.7 per cent y/y]. Fewer trading day in April, due to the timing of Easter and ANZAC Day, is a likely reason why the Wellington jobs market y/y growth stabilised. However, month on month advertising on SEEK for the region rose slightly, up 0.9 per cent,” explained Faulding.

The top advertising industries on SEEK for Wellington this April, and their average advertised annual salaries were:

Information & Communication Technology $100,787
Administration & Office Support $51,203
Trades & Services $60,434

The ICT fields offering the most job opportunities throughout the Wellington region this April were Business and System Analysts, Developers and Programmers and Programme & Project Management, which mirrors the ICT talent demand in Auckland.

One of the fastest growing industries across Wellington this April was Real Estate & Property, up 33 per cent y/y. Across our nation’s capital, this is a small advertising industry on SEEK in comparison to other sectors, however the fields with greatest demand for workers and driving this growth across Real Estate & Property were:

o Body Corporate & Facilities Management

o Commercial Sales, Leasing & Property Management

CANDIDATE AVAILABILITY

“Relative to 12 months ago, competition conditions were tougher for jobseekers in Auckland, Wellington and Canterbury this April, this means there has been a slight increase in the number of people applying for jobs on SEEK. However, it was still a candidate’s market this April, meaning candidates still had the upper hand over hirer’s when applying for jobs,” explained Faulding.

“At a national level, applications per ad remain high across the Engineering, ICT, Accounting and Marketing & Communications industries, which suggests tougher conditions for job seekers and an easier task for employers to source suitable candidates.

“High candidate availability remains in Human Resources, Legal and Mining, Resources & Energy sectors, however conditions are beginning to tighten,” revealed Faulding.

“Conditions remain tight for employers and relatively favourable for candidates [low applications per ad] in housing-related markets such as Real Estate & Property, Trades & Services, and Design & Architecture. Service based industries are also favourable for candidates, such as Hospitality & Tourism and Retail & Customer Products,” Faulding concluded.

Tractor sales show confidence in primary industry continues

29 May 2017

Tractor sales show confidence in primary industry continues

Sales of tractors are remaining steady in the year to date compared to last year, demonstrating continuing confidence within the primary industry, says NZ Tractor and Machinery Association (TAMA) Vice President, Roger Nehoff.

Mr Nehoff said in the four months to the end of April, the total number of tractor sales was 803 compared to 796 during the same period in 2016, demonstrating that overall New Zealand’s primary industry was stable and coping with weather events and any volatility in the global markets.

The YTD figures, compiled by TAMA, show sales increases in the horticulture and viticulture industries in Northland, Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough. There was a sales decrease in the Bay of Plenty and Auckland, however.

“In spite of the adverse weather events, the growth in horticulture and viticulture looks set to continue, especially with the current kiwifruit boom, expansion of apple production and continuing growth in the New Zealand wine industry.”

Tractor sales in Marlborough had increased nearly 120% compared to January through April last year while sales in the Hawke’s Bay had increased by 50%. This was driven by the planting of more grapes and the need to replace an aging fleet.

Several traditional dairy, sheep and beef regions (Taranaki, Otago and Central North Island) are reflecting the positive signals in the economy with growth. Among the standouts was Taranaki, whose tractor sales almost doubled compared with the same period last year. This is considered to be due to confidence lifting with dairy farming customers, coupled with the need to replace or update aging machinery prior to winter.

Mr Nehoff said, overall, tractor manufacturers were positive about 2017.

Anecdotal feedback from farmers at the recent field days in Feilding and Kirwee was that there was more confidence in the market and this would be reflected in farmers replacing machinery.

Adjustable Standing Desk Convertible Workstation Dual-Monitor Surface Launched

PDF  View as PDF  Print View   

High Supply, an online retailer, launched a new convertible standing workstation. Offering up to 16.75″ of extra height to existing desks, the workstation can be used by anyone up to 6’5″ tall, with the generous 36″ surface being able to easily fit two large monitors.

High Supply, an online retailer, announced a new convertible standing desk model. The adjustable workstation can easily be transformed from a traditional desk to a standing desk, allowing users with heights of up to 6’5″ to work on to two 27″ monitors while standing up.

More information can be found at https://amazon.com/Standing-Desk-Height-Adjustable-Stand/dp/B01NAVHONO.

Recent years have seen growing public safety concerns over the risked posed by increased sedentarism. With the average office worker spending more than five and a half hours sitting each day, obesity, cardiovascular disease and musculoskeletal problems have become more and more common.

Studies have shown that even moderate exercise during office hours can have positive health effects. Standing desks have grown in popularity, with many people opting to stand up while working in an effort to protect themselves from the risks associated with long sitting periods.

High Supply launched a new convertible standing desk. Unlike traditional standing desks, the High Supply model allows users to easily switch between standing and sitting positions, helping them reap the benefits of moderate physical activity while working on various projects.

The High Supply convertible workstation is designed as a robust desktop solution for everyone looking to maximize desk space. The large, 36″ surface allows the use of two 27″ monitors at the same time, meaning that users can work on complex projects while standing up. This is a significant improvement over most other standing desks models, which are typically not large enough to fit multiple monitors.

Users of various heights can use the High Supply workstation, as it is offers gradual adjustment for various heights. It can be raised up to 16.75? above the existing desktop, making it an ideal solution for users up to 6’5″ tall.

The workstation also allows users to correct the eye-monitor distance, reducing the risks associated with excessive eye strain.

High Supply is currently looking for beta testers for future convertible standing desks models.

Penguin Random House Australia Saves Months in Project Time Using Insightcentr for Software Usage Data

Why pay for software you don't use?

Insightcentr

We were able to save 3 months effort in project costs and time, whilst collecting all the data we needed …

Penguin Random House Australia used Insightcentr to save months in people time and cost to prepare for a Microsoft Windows 10 and PC refresh project. Tax Snell, Head of IT Applications shared that, „We were able to save 3 months effort in project costs and time, whilst collecting all the data we needed in order to kick off our Modern Office program.” Greg Rudakov, Insightcentr Co-Founder says „It has been a fantastic opportunity to work with Taz and the team with the results speaking for themselves.”

COMPANY BACKGROUND

Penguin Random House Australia is the local arm of Penguin Random House employing more than 10,000 people globally across five continents. It comprises almost 250 editorially and creatively independent imprints and publishing houses that collectively publish more than 15,000 new titles annually. Its publishing lists include more than 70 Nobel Prize laureates and hundreds of the world’s most widely read authors.

KEY METRICS

  • 500 Windows agents deployed
  • 5,000 business applications
  • Value realised within 4 days
  • 3 months project costs and time saved

THE CHALLENGE

Penguin Random House has historically operated an ‚open’ PC environment meaning there was the minimal restriction to installing applications or modifying system configurations. Whilst this freedom is great for personalisation, it brings with it significant IT support costs, software licensing challenges and information security risks. As part of their Modern Office program, Penguin Random House plans to deliver a new Windows 10 managed operating environment with an optimised set of standard business applications at its core – addressing these challenges of the previous operating model.

In order to establish an understanding of which applications are key to which business users, Penguin Random House interviewed Project Managers and Businesses Analysts with a view to conducting a 3 month business application assessment. The outcome of this assessment was to determine who uses which software, when, and for what purpose across some 5,000 individual software applications.

BETTER DATA, FASTER

Insightcentr was presented as an alternative approach to Penguin Random House’s application assessment challenge. Being an automated data gathering tool, it solves:

  • Who’s using what – current user information is captured along with the specific application in use – whether installed on the PC or run out of a browser (like cloud software)
  • When are they using it – data is sampled continuously giving breakdown and trends of usage over the course of days, weeks or even months – very handy to capture those critical end-of-month/end-of-quarter tool sets which may not be used every day
  • For what purpose – Insightcentr can inspect deeply to determine which documents are being used, or which departments are using which apps

Better still, there are no interruptions to business users asking them to fill out surveys, and completely eliminates human error in estimating timing or frequency of usage.

„We were able to save 3 months effort in project costs and time, whilst collecting all the data we needed in order to kick off our Modern Office program.”
— Taz Snell, Head of IT Applications

LESS THAN A DAY TO IMPLEMENT

Immediately after signing the contract, the Penguin Random House team rolled out Insightcentr to a handful of IT users for technical assessment, and then the following day rolled it out to the broader business. Only 4 days later, valuable usage insights were already flowing in from across the organisation.

The total technical effort to implement Insightcentr across the organisation was less than one day – and that included both agent installation as well as walking through the reporting in Power BI.

“One of the surprising data points we picked up on was how much screen saver time – particularly overnight – was recorded. We can now implement better power saving policies and save costs on energy.”
— Taz Snell, Head of IT Applications

BEYOND SOFTWARE USAGE

Outside the Modern Office program, Penguin Random House can use the data collected by Insightcentr in a range of different ways – measuring the benefit of the new operating environment, providing productivity measures for technology business cases and ensuring licensing compliance and ROI on software investment.
