Jason Hope Ponders The Structure Of A Tech-centric United States

Jason Hope has made a name for himself as one of the nation’s leading tech entrepreneurs. The Arizona businessman has an impressive record to his credit.

He was one of the first movers in the premium mobile content space, beating Apple to market by nearly a decade.

But recently, Hope, who has a reputation of being perennially bullish on the future, has become concerned with some of the implications of a rapidly automating society.

The future is now
Hope has long been one of the principal proponents of all the wondrous possibilities that technologies, such as the Internet of Things, have to offer. But neither is he some kind of futurist Pollyanna. Hope has long been concerned with the implications of some of the more disruptive aspects of the widespread adoption of new technologies.

One of these is the ever improving and expanding state of automation. Many people think of things like completely automated restaurants, where no employees are involved in food preparation or serving, and self-driving cars are foggy concepts that belong to the distant future. Jason Hope is quick to point out that their view is false. The future is now.

In California, the chain Eatsa is a fully-automated, self-serve fast food restaurant. It has more or less proven the concept of a restaurant with essentially no employees. Elsewhere in the same state, companies such as Uber and Mercedes Benz rack up millions of miles per year with completely autonomous cars. The spread of these technologies is only a matter of time.

Eight out of the of the top retail mortgage and title companies who are involved with property closings rely solely on Nationwide for their documentation needs, and rightly so. The mortgage industry is highly competitive, and the two most important factors are the speed of the delivery of the documents, such as lien releases and title verification are important. Also, the accuracy of these documents is extremely vital because the wrong documents can shut down a closing session on a piece of property.

 

Nationwide has a .78% rejection rate and a 99.89% rate of compliance. This means that the accuracy and the speed of delivery are nearly 100% on both counts, which leads the industry.

 

Much of the credit goes to the employees and the training that they receive. New employees have an intensive three-week training period where they cover every detail of what they will be doing when they are on the job. Then when they are in their first few months of working, they are monitored very closely until they master the tasks at hand.

 

Employees also have over 150 training and educational modules that are available to them. Employees can take advantage of these extra learning courses to advance withing the company. Time is set aside for anyone who wishes to participate. At any given time approximately 50% to 70% of the workforce is found to be involved in these extra pursuits.

 

Nationwide enjoys and enthusiastic workforce, and it is a company that people enjoy working for. This is brought out in the Top 100 workplace to work recognition, which Nationwide has been a part of for the past five out of six years, as noted by the Tampa Bay Times.

 

As John Hillman, the company CEO puts it, compliance is something that companies in our industry talk about a lot, but some don’t live it. To have high marks in the compliance area, you have to train for it and then publically monitor it so that it becomes a part of the corporate culture. Then and only then, will it finally become a fact of life.
