Mobile Banking Couple

Mobile Banking trends may be showing that the younger generation is leading the charge, but recent studies are showing that Mobile Banking is not just for the young anymore.

According to a recent article posted by the Credit Union Times older consumers are increasingly turning to their smartphones and tablets to meet their banking needs,  This represents a big opportunity for credit unions.

Sharetec Mobile Banking allows members to do more than just check balances.  Members can view transaction history, transfer funds, make mobile deposits, locate branches, check messages and make payments. Sharetec’s data processing system for credit unions features a fully integrated core system that includes modules for Shares and Drafts, Loans, Collections, automated 5300 Call Report, Marketing, Cross Selling, Shared Branching, Home Banking, Mobile Banking, Text Banking, Remote Deposit Capture, e-Documents, and Remote e-Sign.

Additionally, Sharetec provides FINCEN and OFAC processing, Credit Bureau integration, Indirect Lending, ACH origination and automated ACH/Share Draft processing.  Sharetec is fully graphical (point and click) and offered both as an in-house data processing system or an on-line service bureau (hosted solution) environment.

As examiners focus on income, mergers will continue to be commonplace. As a result, more credit unions are focusing on non-interest income to make up for lack of loan income.

Members “First” Community Credit Union uses a number of key products to generate significant income and decrease their expenses. This effort has catapulted them into the top 1% ROA of all credit unions in the country.

With Sharetec’s eNotices module, members receive their information faster than they would through traditional mail, providing them easy access to notices, letters and other correspondence related to their account. Members “First” Community Credit Union saves big money on postage expenses, as well as additional savings from envelopes, paper, ink, folding, and staff time.

Teri McEwen, CEO of Members “First” Community Credit Union, remarked, “We appreciate the fact that Bradford-Scott continually adds new products like eNotices. One of our goals is to keep up with the larger financial players in our market, and the eNotices module gives us that opportunity, which has proven to be a great success for our credit union.”

Since Members “First” Community Credit Union started using Sharetec’s eNotices module, they have reduced their monthly expenses $975.00.

Average monthly savings from eNotices:

Postage $700.00

Envelopes $ 86.00

Paper $ 9.00

Staff (saves 45 min./day) $180.00

TOTAL $975.00 x 12 = $11,700.00 Annual Savings

The end result of implementing the eNotices feature is that it benefits both the credit union and the member.
