    31 Jul 2015 | 6:31 am
    I’m always amazed how so many business owners love to crow about their companies' outstanding customer service and immediate responsiveness. And that they are “leading by example.” Yet, some owners stop taking calls or meetings personally because they feel their people are doing this for them. Or they assume any inquiry is really just another person who wants to sell them something or just another vendor. It's true that nobody has time in the 21st century nobody, but how do you know if you…
  • Why customers deliberately abandon online shopping carts (and what to do about it)

    Peter Roesler
    31 Jul 2015 | 5:49 am
    The most important part of a marathon is the final leg of the race. It’s at this point that a racer reaches the finishes line or gives up along the way. This is similar to the checkout process for online retailers — an online transaction isn’t complete until consumers make it through checkout. A recent study finds that getting customers through the checkout process is becoming harder than ever, and deliberate cart abandonments have nearly doubled since last year. Cart abandonment happens,…

    Highlandtown can look forward to the upcoming redevelopment of the former Haussner’s building, but the corner at Eastern Avenue and South Clinton Street isn’t quite out of commercial real estate limbo.

A proof-of-concept study at Hopkins found that routine blood tests were not affected by trips of up to 40 minutes on hobby-sized drones. The findings are promising for rural and poor communities, for example in developing countries, where clinics are often 60 miles or more from the nearest blood-testing lab and the roads to get there can…

    Chris Wetterich
    31 Jul 2015 | 6:50 pm
    Proposed changes to Cincinnati’s form of government were met with Mayor John Cranley’s strident opposition on Friday, so much so that the committee that crafted them after a year of study may reconsider the recommendations altogether. Cranley opposes two proposed amendments to Cincinnati’s charter -- one that would remove the mayor’s ability to kill ordinances before they’ve received council’s consideration and another that would make the city manager subject to termination by a council…
