Top 3 Things Nifty Project Management Users Can't Live Without

Posted by Guest Authors Nifty on Apr 2, 2020 8:30:00 AM

GUEST POST!

Utilizing the Corus platform, we gathered feedback from Nifty customers about the things they can't live without

There are a lot of project management tools out there, so inevitably the first questions that we often get from prospective customers are “what makes Nifty different?” or “what makes Nifty so great?” Instead of coming up with something on our own, we thought we’d ask our customers for their thoughts.

Should big banks be scared about the future of finance & investing?

Posted by Drew Chambers and Jason Abromaitis on Jan 23, 2020 8:00:00 AM

Apps like Robinhood and Acorns are shaking up a space that has been dominated by large establishments since the beginning of modern finance. What makes these apps so special, why are consumers responding to their message, and should big banks be scared?

Technology has infiltrated every facet of our lives (even when we’re sleeping). It’s only natural that tech companies large and small would turn their attention to one of the oldest and largest verticals (expected to reach a value of $26.5 TRILLION by 2022) in our economy, the financial sector. Tech has promised for a while to upend the way that people bank, even challenging what we consider fiat currency. To date though it can still feel like the only tangible commercial banking improvement (if it’s even an improvement) is commingling baristas and tellers.

What Meatless Meats Understood that Changed the Vegan Food Trajectory

Posted by Drew Chambers, Jason Abromaitis, and Farhan Mustafa on Dec 12, 2019 5:45:00 AM

Beyond Meat and Impossible Burgers are everywhere, and the startups that created them are darlings of Silicon Valley. But what did they understand that previous vegan options didn’t? Utilizing the power of Grafiti and Corus together we’ll show you how moving away from social and lifestyle issues and instead focusing on taste in product development and marketing helped move the needle.

Impossible Meat made news recently when it partnered with Burger King on the “Impossible Whopper,” which their commercials describe as, “100% Whopper. 0% Meat.” They have been a huge hit, and along with other meatless meats like Beyond Meat, are taking grocery stores and dinner tables by storm. But what did these companies see that others before them didn’t? Vegan options have been available at grocery stores for decades, and organizations that promote veganism like PETA, have been around a similar length of time (PETA is getting ready to celebrate its 40th anniversary next year). Finally the issue of climate change has been talked about for years; “An Inconvenient Truth” was released 13 years ago in 2006. Our research indicates that these brands, especially their marketing and product development arms, tapped into something else.

Best Practices: Collaborating helps build better surveys

Posted by Jillian Dutson and Drew Chambers on Dec 5, 2019 10:24:13 AM

The Corus platform was designed for teams. But what are some of the best ways to get the most out of it if you’re not used to building surveys collaboratively?

Working collaboratively around large datasets just makes sense. In general there is just too much information for one individual to ingest and decipher. ProPublica put out a great piece about how their newsroom improved when they started implementing large-scale collaborative processes around data analysis, and the results are pretty impressive. But what about before the dataset is built? What about collaborating during the survey phase? Is that possible, practical, and/or advisable? In our experience, yes - and here are some best practices to get the most out of the collaborative tools integrated on the Corus platform.
