Kern Schools Expands Services to Address Post-System Upgrade Member Concerns
The $1.5 billion, Bakersfield, Calif.-based Kern Schools FCU, which came under fire last week by members after a system upgrade, is offering expanded call center hours and an on-site training program to further assist members who had trouble accessing their online accounts, Kern Schools FCU CEO Steve Renock said.
Renock said the CU’s call volumes are “trending down but are still higher than normal.” The CU is running a personalized training program through next week at its main office at 9500 Ming Ave. in Bakersfield, which allows members to receive in-person assistance from CU team members. Renock said about 200 members have participated in the program so far and were “appreciative of the assistance.”
The Kern Schools CEO adds that as wait time for service has dropped, communication has become “less stressed for all involved.”
“We are committed to helping each member resolve any issue they have, whether it is concerning the conversion or their normal business with the credit union,” he said.
