John Skurla turns 90 May 13th! So I am writing this blog to honor my dad and the legacy he created for me, the Skurla's family, and his family and network of friends and business associates.
All of us at Skurla's would like to wish you a very Happy New Year!
And speaking of new, we have lots of "new" going on around here!
What does wearing a Fitbit and working at Skurla's Point of Sale Solutions have in common?
To quote one of my dad’s favorite sayings - "there is nothing more permanent than change".
It was quite a month for many Alaskans - like surviving a major earthquake, just to name one thing.
We have had over 1,800 aftershocks as of yesterday, roads are being repaired, schools are still closed, but no one suffered serious injury - amazing.
At Skurla's, we also started the month with a "jolt" - literally. On November 19th, a truck careened into the front wall of our office. It destroyed the conference room wall, many of the contents, and part of Jeff's office. We are so grateful that this happened before we opened - the outcome could have been much different. See pictures below!
From TSYS and VISA:
Visa is introducing an authorization requirement for return (cardholder refund) transactions. Authorizing a return enables the card issuer to validate the cardholder account, decline potentially fraudulent cards, and minimize chargebacks if the account does not exist or is closed. The return authorization message is intended to improve the return process by enabling cardholders to view a credit/return on their online banking statement in real time, as well as support other issuer services such as text alerts, in order to improve the cardholder experience and minimize return inquiries.
