I hear more and more talk about credit union relevance – specifically whether it can be maintained. Credit unions have long been the underdogs in a marketplace dominated by big banks. Now the Walmarts and Amazons and Facebooks of the world are poised to take their own cuts of the financial services action. Can credit unions maintain any semblance of relevance in this topsy-turvy marketplace?I believe the answer is yes, through the effective use of technology. Thus, I offer my three tech tips for maintaining – and even increasing – credit union relevance.Stop playing “technology me too”Many credit unions let big banks take the lead, then dutifully follow along. They look at what big banks are doing and then from that they develop a checklist of must-have technologies. Credit unions can no longer obsess over what the bank next door is doing. They need to think about technology in new and exciting ways. If you need an example of how to properly manage technology, look to the companies that are doing it exceedingly well – companies like Apple and Amazon. Chart your own technology course and stop trying to be Mini Me to the Dr. Evil Bank down the street.Explore new channelsHere’s just one example. Have you ever looked into getting your credit on LendingTree? If you have, I’m sure it wasn’t for long. You quickly realized that the amount of effort probably wasn’t worth the return. Does that mean credit unions shouldn’t be on LendingTree? Not necessarily.A new client of ours, a CUSO called CU Lending Cooperative (www.yourculc.com), has created a powerful, fast lending platform that essentially puts participating credit unions on LendingTree. (Note: LendingTree is CULC’s first venue, but definitely not its last.) The loan offer is initially presented as CULC. Then if a borrower accepts the offer, the CULC software instantly identifies which credit union the borrower is eligible for. CULC books the loan, funds the loan, and deposits the funds into a new share account at the credit union regardless of your core platform. That’s powerful stuff.Focus on member experienceUnless you just logged onto the internet for the first time yesterday, you’ve seen your user experience evolve over the years. That’s because the Googles, Apples, Facebooks and Amazons of the world are intent on constantly improving the user experience of their customers. It’s not a one and done proposition; it’s a never-ending quest. These giants have created an expectation in consumers that their user experience today will be just a little better than it was yesterday.Now think about the member experience at your credit union. Has it changed much over the past few years? More to the point, have you made any specific efforts to change it over the past few years? If your member experience isn’t intentionally evolving, your credit union is falling behind – behind the big banks and especially behind your new non-bank competitors.Technology has long been known as the great equalizer. Deploy the same technology as the big banks and you can compete with the big banks, right? Except today, there’s more to technology than just a checklist. It’s no longer about what pieces you own; it’s about the unique experiences you build around those pieces. 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John San Filippo John is the co-founder of OmniChannel Communications, Inc., a company that specializes in B2B marketing to community financial institutions.

DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University women’s basketball program held its fifth annual One-on-One event with Drake faculty and staff members and the public Thursday evening at the Knapp Center. Print Friendly Version Drake hosts Winona State Nov. 1 in an exhibition contest at the Knapp Center with tipoff set for 7 p.m. Following one more exhibition game at the Knapp Center on Nov. 5 against MidAmerica Nazarene, the Bulldogs open the regular season Nov. 11 at North Dakota. The program allowed the faculty and the student-athletes to introduce each other to the crowd. The duos used fun, creative ways to present each other and give the audience a chance to get to know the student-athletes in a different way than what they see out on the basketball court. Check the list below for the pairings. The evening’s program ended with fifth-year head coach Jennie Baranczyk at the podium, where she thanked the fans, donors, staff and faculty for all they do support the program and the university. Baranczyk praised her student-athletes as they get set for the upcoming season, where the Bulldogs are expected to achieve big goals and dreams on the basketball court.

After enjoying numerous delicious desserts from several, generous local businesses the action moved to the court for the program. Drake women’s basketball would like to thank the following sponsors of the event for their generous donations for the one-on-one event. Christopher’s Restaurant, Echo’s Cookies, Cupcake Addict, The Bake Shoppe, Edible Arrangements and Glorious Desserts. Each student-athlete on the team was paired with a Drake faculty or staff member and introduced to each other at a dinner prior to the event. The dinner gave each pair a chance to share personal information and stories before introducing one another at a short program for the public on the floor of the Knapp Center.
The tectonic changes that rattled the NBA during free agency have quieted. The dust has cleared. And basketball cognoscenti are trying to make sense of the altered landscape.Or maybe not-so-altered. Take the Warriors, for example. The poor, poor Warriors.Not everybody is feeling so sad for the Bay Area’s dynastic team.“They have Steph Curry and Draymond Green and they know how to play together,” said Ramona Shelburne, striking an optimistic chord on ESPN’s “Get Up” Monday morning. “I think …
