SAC FCU is the largest credit union in Nebraska. Over the past several years, the credit union has grown rapidly and is now serving more than 70,000 members through a variety of channels, including 20 locations in eight counties. The credit union selected Acumen to provide the technology foundation for the credit union's information infrastructure in order to improve efficiency, facilitate the delivery of new services and provide a superior experience to its members.

"As we plan for the future of SAC Federal Credit Union, we feel confident that Fiserv offers the best technology to help us meet our goals.

Automated workflows, built-in eCRM functionality and web services through Acumen give SAC FCU associates access to a complete 360-degree view of the credit union's members. Acumen's eJournal functionality also generates workflows to direct this information to appropriate staff throughout the organization, while the integration of Nautilus will provide an advanced imaging solution that combines workflow and email. With this information readily available, staff can offer members services tailored to their individual needs. In addition, manual and duplicate entry of information and the passing of paper is no longer necessary, freeing staff to service members.
