Next generation solutions and Twitter
Are you also being bombarded with slogans and verbiage telling you that the ‘next generation suite of products’ will solve all the problems you are currently facing? The future is mobile? Social media marketing is the way to going viral? Maybe I am old fashioned, maybe I am just old. I didn’t think so, but I am puzzled by this desire to connect with everyone, follow everyone, and ideally, lo and behold, be followed by everyone as well.
I have recently started Twittering, Tweeting or whatever it’s called. The helpful hints provided by Twitter tell me that to increase my number of followers, I need to start following as many people as possible. If you only get followers by following, surely the world would cease to evolve, because everything would become circular, and leadership and innovation would disappear?
Having read a large number of Tweets I notice that they invariably state something that someone else already said, so is the Tweeter telling me to follow the Tweet originator? There seems no point following the Tweeter as his Tweet was really a second hand idea. Via different sources I have so far received 267 messages telling me that US regulators are probing US banks on money laundering irregularities. I know, it’s in the paper!
And what about all this stuff about next generation solutions? My clients are of the current generation and I am not sure it is particularly helpful to tell them that we’ll have a go at supporting them, but it will all be better when our next generation suite goes live. So please become a Beta user, which means we don’t have to pay product development staff.
MHA clients’ face the same challenges as before, lack of resource, lack of time and evolving regulatory demands that never seem to stand still. In addition to all of this, finances are ultra tight, with the quadruple squared recession still going strong. This is why we have developed our service offerings MHA Gateway and MHA Assist to assist our clients in meeting their needs in the current generation. Our services are simply a cost effective way of managing time, resources and money whilst still being able to run an effective AML regime. This includes getting less ‘news’. We are targeting today’s issues with a current generation offering.
