"If a seamless, digital journey is the goal for your credit union, you’re already behind. The digital experience has evolved, and members no longer need to go on a journey to get to their destination."12 November 2021
"A key benefit of the CuneXus platform, is that it allows credit unions to guarantee credit to specific members, avoiding the deflating experience of being rejected for a loan after the member has been invited to apply as part of a typical preapproval campaign. Sending [invitations to apply] to more people might yield more business on the books, but if it’s sabotaging the member experience in the process, then your long-term value proposition for your membership base is very thin."12 November 2021
"Members have proven they’re not afraid to walk away when their expectations aren’t met. And if credit unions want to compete with big techs and larger banks, they must provide a sense of support, convenience and personalization. The industry has a chance to win over a new generation of business with such progressive strategies. Credit unions have the local, caring and altruistic positioning that people want, now it’s time to add the convenience and next-level service that can outshine financial alternatives. It’s time to end the journey."12 November 2021
