The platform tracks specific experiences, such as applying for a loan, conducting a transaction — mobile, online or in branch — or opening a new account, and turns qualitative data into quantifiable and actionable information for the credit union.

“Our more than 18,000 members at 4 branches across the North Country deserve to do business with a financial institution that respects them and works in their best interest.
