We’ve talked about blazing fast speeds before, and how they have become a necessity in today’s world. But what has the increased speed really brought us besides streaming movies and faster web browsing?
Two words: cloud computing. Record-breaking speeds have now allowed us to have virtual applications run on our computers through our web browser and Internet connection. Cloud computing opens the door to being able to run applications in our browsers without having to install a thing!
The possibilities are endless. Everything either is, or will be, in the cloud before we know it. CUProdigy, our web-based credit union management software, is no exception. We’ve built our software from the ground up with the option to be completely cloud-based, or to have it installed on an internal server at your credit union. Either way you take advantage of cloud computing in some form.
The advantages of cloud computing don’t end at just being able to access it through your browser. One of the most beneficial advantages is in recovery and backup. With our cloud-based solution your application exists outside of your branch without our temperature controlled environments. If your credit union goes down in flames (knock on wood), then your data and software is still safe. Backups are also processed on a regular basis, which provides an extra sense of safety.
Another big advantage is security. The “cloud” often has many people concerned about how secure their data will really be—our answer, very secure. Since we have many clients using our software in the cloud we are able to provide top-level support and security to each of them. With temperature and humidity controlled environments we ensure that your software is always running smoothly. CUDP also provides a high-level firewall and intrusion prevention to keep unwanted guests out.
With advantages like these it’s no wonder that 7 in 10 businesses are using cloud services and moving their data to the cloud. With CUDProdigy we make transitioning your credit union software to the cloud a simple and pain-free process. Cloud computing is the way of the future, and getting there with your credit union is as easy as that!
The future is mobile. The evidence of this surrounds us.
Think about it, have you ever been in a public place and not seen at least one person’s eyes glued to their cell phone? Our culture has developed in such a way that these mobile devices are a requirement for living, and they have found their way into every aspect of our lives—including managing our finances.
We make it very easy for customers to connect to their personal account while on the go (making you yet another person that is glued to their phone!). There are many services that allow the experience to be pleasant and productive for the end user. Real-time updates, ease of use, and after hours access to your personal credit union account are all part of the appeal of going mobile and accessing your system remotely from your phone, tablet, or computer.
Keeping track of spending and account balances is easier than ever, and being able to manage them anytime and anyplace has become an expectation for credit union members. E-statements and SMS texts from your credit union can save you from getting hit with a late fee, or even save you a trip to your local branch.
You’ll also never forget to pay a bill with bill pay reminders. Scheduling automatic payments and managing existing payments is right at the your fingertips. Long gone are the days of those old paper statements and late fees; however, there is still quite a bit of concern about the security of Internet banking and mobile credit union management. You can rest assured that with CUDP’s cutting edge technology managing your member account is easy, safe and convenient. Mobile banking is here.
