The CUNA Technology Council is now offering a 28-page paper offering advice on how to most effectively choose and deploy automation and other technology solutions.
The white paper is titled "Strategic Technology Planning: Align Planning with Your Credit Union's Goals" and is authored by Judy Dahl, a former CUNA staffer and now owner of a communications firm in Madison, Wis.
The report focuses on ways to develop and follow technology plans, such as getting senior management to participate and maximizing technology's enabling role in nearly every phase of a credit union's operation.
Included are case studies from the $1.5 billion Spokane Teachers CU in Washington state, the $5 billion San Diego County CU in California, the $350 million Nassau Financial FCU in New York and the $550 million Great Lakes CU in Illinois.
The white paper is one of more than 200 that are free to CUNA Council members and $50 to non-members. The CUNA Technology Council is one of six CUNA Councils and has more than 500 members working together to share information and foster professional development.
