Engage members, help local communities and boost employee engagement
Without the large resources enjoyed by major banking groups, Credit Unions have historically not been in a position to invest heavily in digital transformation.
Yet, improving new and existing member engagement doesn’t have to be complicated – or costly. Using a tool like ScreenCloud removes both the IT and content creation difficulties often associated with digital signage.
Digital signage is a powerful messaging medium that can unlock the barriers between what you want your members to know, what they want to know, and amplifying those key messages. It is also greatly beneficial for the engagement and productivity of your staff.
Ultimately, it can be your most powerful marketing ally.
As a community-focused business in a competitive market, improving member and employee engagement is critical to a Credit Union’s retention capabilities.
As a member-owned business, focusing on digital transformation benefits everyone; offset membership fees with a better customer experience, increase dividend payouts from promoting new products and play a bigger role within your community – all enabled by digital signage.
One of the major benefits of banking with a Credit Union is that they place members above profit. But this in turn increases expectations for a greater customer experience.
Digital signage allows you to inform, educate and entertain members. Show content that really matters to them, all with the ease of pushing that content out to your entire screen network from one centralized content management system – no matter the screen location.
With the right content strategy, a customer-facing screen greatly enhances your marketing efforts; one credit union saw a 369% increase in car loans, a 233% change in card valet enrollments and a 109% increase in their rewards program, all from implementing a digital signage strategy.
Digital signage also allows you to replace the (often outdated) paper notices that can make branches feel cluttered. It helps you to structure what you want your members to see, and also enhance the visibility of those messages above other communication methods.
Playlists are a flexible way of organizing your content, and creating one specifically with your members in mind can enhance engagement.
Create branch-specific content or a communal Playlist that can be shown across your screen network; any edits can be made directly within ScreenCloud, which in turn updates the content shown on all screens.
Members’ Playlist content could include:
Credit Unions are a big part of the local community, so use your digital signage to reflect your positive corporate citizenship. Along with showing your members’ Playlist, create a community one to show your members that you are truly focused on the people in the communities that you serve.
Digital signage doesn’t just benefit Credit Union members. Screens in the back office can greatly increase employee engagement and productivity, while also adding to your internal communications strategy.
As with any business, getting the right data in front of the right teams is essential for cultivating a data-driven work environment. This can greatly increase productivity. One of the many issues of achieving this, however, is how to get this data onto screens securely.
ScreenCloud Dashboards can optimize your data visualization tools and empower your employees with real-time performance metrics – with enterprise-grade security. Use tools like Tableau, Grafana or Power BI to monitor account health, member sign ups, expenses or even your marketing activities.
If your Credit Union has multiple locations, keep everyone informed of what’s going on with a centralized Playlist. Show weekly reports of new members, fee changes, board meeting notes and general announcements. Using an app like Google Alerts can also send through any branch mentions on the web to ensure you can take immediate action where required.
We’ve written before about how digital signage is an essential tool for improved employee engagement; uploading employee news and announcements can help with retention and making employees feel valued. It can also build a sense of community and camaraderie.
