Today’s credit union environment is dynamic, with abundant opportunities arising with new members lured by fewer fees, better interest rates, and intimate member-first experiences for which credit unions are known. Conversely, credit unions face competition from Tier 1 banks and an ever-growing pool of data-centric fintech players. It’s time for credit unions to fully embrace a data-driven strategy to remain competitive. 

The Untapped Potential of Credit Union Analytics

According to the 2020 Credit Union Innovation Index, only 11 percent of credit unions have invested in data analytics innovations over the last three years, despite the fact that the financial services industry as a whole has accelerated digital transformation efforts considerably in that same period.

One of the factors that may be slowing the adoption of stronger data and analytics strategies is a lack of analytics technology specifically built for credit unions. Traditional enterprise solutions and pre-built tools are often not a good fit for credit unions. That lack may be partially responsible for the fact that, according to a survey by BIG Consulting, 65 percent of credit unions do not have a roadmap or strategy for using data analytics in their organization.

A data strategy offers two significant benefits. First, it is focused, which means the data team tends not to waste time, energy, and resources collecting unnecessary data. Second, it reveals quick wins that can easily be leveraged to solve critical problems and make challenging goals more attainable.

Create a Solid Process

The credit union data analytics journey is typically segmented into four stages:

No credit union analytics program can succeed without a robust implementation process that considers these four stages.

Invest in the Right Tools

A data analytics initiative is only as good as the hardware and software tools it uses. Proper data management tools integrate data from all relevant sources within and beyond your credit union, regardless of their disparities, and deliver insights that reveal the full, accurate picture for effective decision-making. Robust data solutions also offer optimum levels of safety, quality, and accessibility, ensuring all systems and staff members get the data they need when they need it.
