UFCU Was Named Celent Model Bank Winner for 2013

Austin, TEXAS — February 25, 2013 — University Federal Credit Union (UFCU) was recently named Celent Model Bank Winner for 2013. Every year, Celent recognizes excellence in banking technology through the Model Bank Awards. The Model Bank Awards are designed to try to answer the deceptively simple questions: What would it look like for a financial institution to do everything right with today's technology?

Model Bank components help banks and credit unions improve performance and meet market demands. "Our Interactive Financial Center concept provides members with an independent, yet personalized banking experience," says UFCU Senior Vice President - Operations/COO, Steve Kubala. "Our members have been totally accepting of the new technology because their interactions with our employees have been superior to what they would normally receive in the retail world today."
