Because of CFCU’s strong commitment to personalized service, the credit union takes a “hands-on” approach when it comes to business intelligence and how it manages data. Ben Smith, Vice President of Business Intelligence for CFCU, explains that “we work hard to get our hands dirty and figure out how we can execute on our strategic goals, measure accordingly, and then quickly adjust our findings. At the same time, we take an “anything is possible” approach, which posed a significant dark-era challenge for credit unions and data analytics many years ago when we were all just getting started. and trying to figure out how to do things. with a multitude of platforms, systems and a lot of data.
Having data was never a problem for CFCU as the organization had always had volumes of information to work with. However, it was scattered throughout the organization and was messy, disjointed and very difficult to bring together. As the credit union began to embrace analytics and become more data-driven, it quickly had to learn how to leverage data within technology platforms to meet strategic business information demands. executive management. Proving they could respond to requests with the anything is possible approach, the business intelligence team began to receive a flurry of requests and found themselves spending a lot of time, effort and determination to get there. to respond.

After an unsuccessful experience with its first vendor, CFCU established more concrete goals and a higher set of expectations for what it required from a data analytics vendor. Innovation and true partnership were high on his wish list. The business intelligence team spoke with many peers and industry experts before beginning the formal exploration process.
“We wanted to work with a cutting-edge technology company that had a proven track record of innovation, as well as experience in multiple industries, including financial services,” Smith said. “Additionally, we were looking for a partnership that would go far beyond the traditional services model – a partner that would support us in a way that we push them to excellence in the platform, and they push us to excellence in our analytics and platform outputs. It really required a fresh approach to our preliminary discovery questions when we met with different vendors.”
CFCU has narrowed its vendor selection to two vendors, including Aunalytics. In addition to outdoing the other company, Aunalytics offered a side-by-side partnership model that integrated technology and expertise into an end-to-end solution designed for non-technical business users. Aunalytics was also flexible, open, agile and offered an unparalleled level of support.
