Credit Union of America Selects FMSI’s Teller Management System™ to Reduce Branch Cost Per Teller Transaction; Relieve Future Affordable Healthcare Act Burdens

July 30, 2013

Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB)

Financial Management Solutions, Inc. (FMSI), a provider of business intelligence solutions for banks and credit unions, announced today that Credit Union of America(CU of America) has adopted FMSI’s Teller Management System™ (TMS).  The $512 million Kansas-based financial institution will reduce their branch cost per transaction with an enhanced scheduling and reporting solution, allowing them to more closely manage their ongoing workforce optimization initiative.

“We did not have the automated system we required to prepare our staffing and transaction data every month, and we did not want to dedicate any of our IT resources to create a new workforce optimization system,“ says Eileen Phelps, Vice President Real Estate & Deposit Operations at CU of America. “Since our IT team is focused on other initiatives, FMSI’s Teller Management SystemTM is the perfect outsourced solution to help us accomplish our workforce optimization goals.  As the industry experts on the topic, we are confident the detailed reports and proven approach FMSI brings to the table will be invaluable to our success.”

FMSI’s Teller Management System™ addresses the concerns of today’s financial institutions: keeping down expenses while improving service levels in the branches. Through the collection and then preparation of teller transaction data from an institution’s core system, TMS quickly empowers management teams with easy to read and actionable business intelligence.

“In addition to helping us improve our workforce optimization performance, FMSI’s scheduling engine will help us control some of the cost burdens of the Affordable Healthcare Act,” adds Phelps.  “By systematically keeping all our part-time teller average weekly hours below a 29-hour threshold, the FMSI scheduling system will help us significantly reduce our exposure to the upcoming federal regulations (see the FMSI Affordable Healthcare Act article for more details).”

“Maintaining teller staffing at the ideal level to ensure customer satisfaction can sometimes be a very credit union specific decision,” says W. Michael Scott, President/CEO of FMSI. “Without accurate information, most financial institutions are not equipped to make a proper evaluation. With more than 20 years of experience helping banks and credit unions improve the productivity of their staff, our unique solutions for measuring and forecasting transaction volumes regularly reveal areas for better service and increased productivity.”
