MADISON, Wis. (7/22/14)--The Credit Union National Association has updated its financial decision-making microsite, Credit Union Calculators.
The tool is used by credit unions to help their members to experiment with financial variables, showing them rather than telling them why the credit union difference matters.
With four new calculators, the update also provides additional options for customization and access to new features. Credit unions can now add their logo and website colors, and can link multiple times to the entire calculator suite, as well as to each individual calculator.
The redesigned calculators also are built in a responsive design, making them easy to use with smart phones, tablets and computers, CUNA said.
"This easy-to-install but powerful update is all about minimizing the distance between the credit union and its members," said Joanne Sepich, CUNA's director of consumer education. "With mobile access, customization opportunities and automatic updates, credit unions can now demonstrate to their members their ability to respond to changing technology needs."
Its tools and features allow members to not only anticipate the impact of their actions, but also to acquire important financial education, including:
- Multidimensional financial projections;
- What-if scenario planning;
- Step-by-step member walkthroughs;
- Printable reports and detailed graphs; and
- The ability to toggle variables and observe their effects.
