Patelco Selects Terafina for Long-Term Omnichannel Strategy

Credit Union Strengthens Commitment to Member-Accessible, High-Value Products & Services With Adoption of Intuitive, Integrated Solution

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2015) - Terafina today announced that Patelco, one of the largest credit unions in the U.S. with more than $4 billion in assets and 280,000 members, has chosen the Terafina Omni Channel sales platform to create an intuitive, engaging, and efficient member experience.

Patelco has long led the industry in the early adoption of technology and services that boost member trust by offering interaction channels and services that are diverse, easy to use, and ubiquitous. Members enjoy significant value -- including an expanding array of financial offerings -- from best-in-breed service to lower loan rates and fewer fees. Terafina's market-leading platform helps Patelco outperform these goals by connecting the member experience across multiple channels and creating standardized, scalable processes across the Patelco enterprise.

"We have an unwavering commitment to help our members achieve financial freedom by delivering innovative services, unquestionable value, and a hassle-free experience. That is why we continually invest in technologies and processes designed to help us understand our members' needs and enhance their experience," said Erin Mendez, president and chief executive officer of Patelco Credit Union. "Terafina's omnichannel solutions enable us to have a 360-degree view of our members so we can continue to offer them a seamless experience regardless of product, channel, or digital device. It also gives our members the flexibility to manage their financial life how, when, and where they choose."

Terafina's Omni Channel sales platform supports the shared branching philosophy and highly personalized service for which credit unions like Patelco are known. It also supports Patelco's long-term growth strategy by enabling the credit union to launch new offerings quickly, all while providing modernized digital services and improved responsiveness to member enquiries by:

  • Engaging in high-touch, high-value interactions with members
  • Disrupting the service status quo with refinements to member self-service, multichannel delivery, and team engagement
  • Integrating digital sales capabilities with physical branch locations
  • Laying the foundation for future innovative services
  • Supporting smartphones, tablets, and mobile wallets

"Transformational investments in improved service across channels, products, devices, and touch points enable Patelco to leap-frog the competition without sacrificing the member trust that bolsters its brand," said Meheriar Hasan, principal founder and chief executive officer of Terafina. "Our integrated digital platform connects people, phones, and digital options to provide greater value to Patelco's members, all of which contribute to higher rates of member participation and lasting member loyalty."
