Earlier this year we upgraded our DataFlex platform to take advantage of ever-increasing software technology and browser capabilities. Although most of the updates are “under the hood”, there are some other more visible enhancements that I would like to take some time to discuss.

 

We’ve expanded our capabilities numerous times over time and continue to add more data points and categories that can be examined. The more areas of investigation that we add to DataFlex, the more details and trends that credit unions can study.

 

Accessible directly from within DataFlex, these videos are concise 1-2 minute clips that explain how to do numerous common tasks and are easy to refer to while interacting with DataFlex. Our training videos are neatly organized into categories to help our clients quickly find what they need.

 

When it comes to the design of your statements, it can be hard to look past the layout that comes from your statement vendor and see the possibilities. Or, perhaps your statements were last redesigned years ago and are due for a refresh. I’ll outline some ways to improve the look of your statements, enhancing their visual appeal, readability, and their marketing effectiveness. All of these factors will combine to create a positive impact on how long members look at your statements, and also your statement marketing.

 

Software never stands still. Recently we upgraded our DataFlex platform, significantly altering the look and feel of the application. Along with the appearance, the speed and efficiency has also been improved. These new features make DataFlex easier and more enjoyable to use than ever. With the modern, faster, more intuitive navigation, you’ll be able to hit the ground running.

 

Being a financial institution, you might have a few marketing pieces that you mail out every quarter. In fact, if you happen to be one of our DataFlex customers, than you might even be mailing special car loan offers to those customers that are about to pay off their car. But what other kinds of marketing can you do and how can DataFlex help you accomplish that?
