In late April, a midsize credit union serving counties in the eastern San Francisco Bay Area launched a new digital banking platform. Within three weeks, the credit union’s desktop platform and mobile app had an impressive acceptance rate of more than 50% among private customers and commercial bank members.

Headquartered in Livermore, California ($ 599.6 million in assets, nearly 30,000 members), UNCLE Credit Union has seen some notable numbers after switching to Alkami Technology, Inc.’s digital banking platform.

Alkami’s unified user interface enables members to synchronize all UNCLE banking functions on desktop and mobile devices.

“Coupled with an intuitive user interface, the new platform gives members vital insights into their overall financial health and helps them improve decision-making and planning for better prospects,” said Lam.

According to a statement from UNCLE’s chief technology officer James Fisher, the credit union does not seem to have finished investing in new tech skills.

“Continuous investment in advanced technologies is essential for any financial cooperative in the current business climate and is an integral part of both our growth strategy and our focus on outstanding service.”

Fisher continued, “With the upgrade, we are offering a state-of-the-art digital banking platform that is not only efficient and easy for our members to use, but can also seamlessly integrate third-party applications to support the new products and services.” Members want.
