Vermont Federal Credit Union Selects FMSI's Teller Management System™ to Improve Member Service and Branch Staff Scheduling Process
Financial Management Solutions, Inc. (FMSI), a provider of business intelligence solutions for banks and credit unions, announced today that Vermont Federal Credit Union (Vermont FCU) has adopted FMSI’s Teller Management System™ (TMS). The $385 million Vermont-based financial institution will improve member service by aligning the right number of branch staff during peak account holder transaction times, and will also turn a laborious manual scheduling process into a more streamlined and automated approach.
“Before talking with FMSI, we were not using forecasted teller transactions to help us determine the right number of staff at the right times in our branches, “says Tom Crapo, Senior Vice President of Operations at Vermont Federal Credit Union. “FMSI’s Teller Management SystemTM helps us leverage our transaction activity, pulled from our core system, to predict the busiest moments in our branches—allowing us to staff the right number of employees to best serve our members at peak-times.”
FMSI’s Teller Management System™ addresses the concerns of today’s financial institutions: keeping down expenses while improving service levels in the branches. Through the collection and then preparation of teller transaction data from an institution’s core system, TMS quickly empowers management teams with easy to read and actionable business intelligence.
“FMSI’s solution also provides us with a more streamlined scheduling process,” adds Crapo. “By simplifying our staff scheduling process, the sophisticated FMSI system saves us a significant amount of time, and also allows our managers to stay more focused on important branch sales and service intiatives.”
“Maintaining teller staffing at the ideal level to ensure customer satisfaction can sometimes be a very credit union specific decision,” says W. Michael Scott, President/CEO of FMSI. "Without accurate information, most financial institutions are not equipped to make a proper evaluation. With more than 20 years of experience helping banks and credit unions improve the productivity of their staff, our unique solutions for measuring and forecasting transaction volumes regularly reveal areas for better service and increased productivity."
