GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (9/28/12)--CU*Answers, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based core data processor and credit union service organization, has released its second quarterly Grand Opening Kit for credit unions.
The "GO" kits are designed to provide credit unions with affordable, professionally designed marketing collateral in a box. The first kits, released in June, gave credit unions a variety of collateral to help them introduce Text Banking to their members.
The second installment notes the self-service options available to members with CU*Answers' It's Me 247 family of products. The materials are designed with a holiday-themed message, "If you are expecting new technology this holiday season, it's already connected with It's Me 247."
Every CU*Answers client will receive one GO Kit free through 2013. GO Kits include posters, decals and table tents. Additional kits are available for purchase.
In other news from CU*Answers:
- The company announced the availability of end-to-end, PC-to-host session encryption that protects all network interactions between the credit unions' PC workstations and the host computers at CU*Answers' data centers. The technology uses industry standard SSL encryption, which makes data unreadable to any attacker who may capture the data transmission.
- More than 50% of the credit unions on the CU*BASE system have adopted its 5300 call report tool. The company says its goal is for 100% of its clients to adopt the tool. The tool allows credit unions to configure their system to auto-populate almost half of the 5300 account codes with data directly from CU*BASE, saving time on subsequent reports.
- CU*Answers announced two upcoming Regional Training Events for its core data processing clients. They are scheduled for Oct. 17 in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Oct. 24 in Madison, Wis. Both events will cover CU*BASE sales and marketing tools that can help promote product and services offerings to members. The event will also cover lending features on the CU*BASE core platform and new lending opportunities through Lender*Hub, a centralized tool to bring applications from outside sources into CU*BASE.
