GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (12/16/14)--CU*Answers, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based credit union service organization, is beta-testing a new data warehouse designed for the mobile credit union executive who wants to track credit union performance on a daily basis.
My CU Today collects key credit union data from CU*BASE, the CUSO's core data processing platform, and presents that data to users in ways that can be acted on quickly.
CU*Answers describes CU Today Alerts as similar to a morning newspaper. Email alerts of the credit union's performance are delivered early each morning. Alerts can be set up on custom parameters and sent to anyone.
My CU Today Trends allows users to log into the web application and view long-term trends of the data points. These graphs show the movement of data and performance over time, granting the user the ability to track successes and areas that need improvement.
"It is our first automated external data warehouse presented for client use," said Randy Karnes, CU*Answers CEO. "It focuses on the credit union leader as the distributor and coordinator of their data, and allows every stakeholder internally and externally to be in the know."
Currently, My CU Today is tracking 60 credit union balance, member and transaction data points from CU*BASE with many more earmarked for tracking in 2015, including cash, delinquency and in-process information.
CU*Answers is signing up beta-test clients to begin populating the credit union data warehouses and will launch to beta-testing credit unions in early 2015.
