Alpharetta, GA (PRWeb) November 13, 2012

Financial Management Solutions, Inc. (FMSI), a provider of business intelligence solutions for banks and credit unions, announced today that Red Canoe Credit Union (Red Canoe) has adopted FMSI’s Teller Management System™ (TMS).  The $580 million, Washington-based financial institution can now streamline branchtransaction analysis at its seven branch locations and work towards better optimizing the branch workforce.

“There are many factors to consider when analyzing the productivity performance of our branches,” says Rich Wilson, CFO at Red Canoe.  “FMSI’s solution helps us pinpoint exactly when our branches are a little light or a little heavy with tellers.  This uniform data streamlined our process and gave us an apples-to-apples comparison between our different locations.”

The Teller Management System™ schedules tellers based on forecasted transaction volumes, thus helping financial institutions gain better control of labor costs while increasing service levels.

“FMSI’s Teller Management System™ empowers us to answer some very tough staffing questions,” adds Wilson.  “Are we doing the best job that we can in utilizing part-time tellers, and can we better schedule them during peak transaction volume times?  Can we do a better job at identifying our top performers and duplicating their best practices?  With this actionable business intelligence, we are in a great position to improve our workforce optimization.”

“Without the right business intelligence, most financial institutions are not equipped to make a thorough evaluation of teller performance levels,” says W. Michael Scott, President/CEO of FMSI.  “FMSI has more than 20 years of experience helping banks and credit unions improve the productivity of their staffs through meaningful business intelligence.  Our unique solutions for measuring and forecasting transaction volumes on a monthly basis regularly reveal areas for better service and increased productivity.”
