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.

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.”
