The CU Soar team have been invited to attend the World Credit Union Conference in Singapore and to demo a custom version of the CU Soar app. We are thrilled to receive the opportunity to meet and network with new credit unions and continue to engage with those we’ve been communicating with recently.
Attendees are coming from around the globe to network with key players in the credit union industry, attend educational sessions and take advantage of the opportunity to be part of an excellent team building environment, facilitating growth & decision making in the sector. One of the keynote speakers at the event is Chris Skinner; an independent commentator on the financial markets and fin-tech through his blog. He is also a regular commentator onBBC news, Sky news, CNBC & Bloomberg. A key area of focus for him during the conference in Singapore, is the future of the financial services and the effect this is having on the credit union sector.
Keynote Speakers at World Credit Union Conference
We are particularly eager to hear Chris Skinner elaborate on these points during his presentation due to their level of pertinency with the CU SoarMobile App. One of the insights highlights how digitising the business model must begin with customer-centricity. This is one of our core values at CU Soar and applies not only to our business model- but also to the CUSoar app and what it can do for your credit union.
During the build of the CU Soar software, customer-centricity was factored into consideration in all areas. This ensures that the CMS is as easy and engaging for credit unions to use as the app is for your members.
Another point recognised as a key insight from Chris Skinner's keynote speech is how "a digital business model comprises front-office apps connecting to back-office analytics through APIs in a marketplace of many players." The CU Soar app provides members with an intuitive app for their smartphones whilst providing the credit unions with a CMS back office that generates analytic reports which provides better insights into your membership's engagement.
It will be interesting for us to hear how Chris Skinner's points are discussed at the conference later this month. Stay tuned for an update following our return from Singapore! We will reflect on the main themes from the conference and distill these into a CU Soar news update.
