The CUNA Technology Council once again passed out best practices honors at its 15th annual conference held Sept. 29-Oct. 2 in Las Vegas.
This year's winners were the $1.3 billion Affinity Plus FCU of St. Paul, Minn., the $1.6 billion Travis CU of Vacaville, Calif., and the $222 million Envision CU of Tallahassee, Fla.
A panel of CUNA Technology Council members selected the winners, based on strategy, process, application and results, without regard to credit union asset size.
Affinity Plus won two awards, one in the information/security privacy category for an automated employee access program and another in the miscellaneous category for an automated in-house statement and notice printing system. Envision CU also won in the miscellaneous category for developing in-house tools to customize software applications.
Travis CU won in the member service/convenience category, meanwhile, for its use of Oracle middleware to integrate data warehouse, business intelligence, enterprise content management and business process management functions to meet the needs of each business area at the big credit union.
The CUNA Technology Council was created in 1995 and said it now includes more than 500 credit union technology experts.
