“We are excited to partner with a company like Connect that is as committed as we are to empowering credit unions with the member-centric tools they need for maximum profitability and optimal member satisfaction,” said Dave Buerger, president & CEO of CuneXus. “This partnership will allow credit unions to expand their loan options while offering unique value to members in an increasingly crowded marketplace.”

Connect’s credit union clients will now be able to provide their more than one million members with perpetual access to pre-approved loans across multiple product lines and through every channel. The benefits for financial institutions include:

  • Eliminating loan applications
  • Increasing loan volume
  • Reducing operating costs
  • Reducing loan processing time
  • Increasing profitability

“Adding an instant loan activation solution to our suite of digital banking products means our credit union partners can now deliver personalized lending offers whenever and wherever their members want them,” said Grant Parry, president of Connect. “This 24/7/365 access eliminates the two biggest obstacles to loan acquisition – applications and waiting – and hits that critical sweet spot for credit unions of superior member experience and lower-cost, higher-profit loan sales.”

Having recently signed its 100th financial institution, with 27 new clients added in 2018, CuneXus expects to announce several additional partnerships in the coming months.
