Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Financial Management Solutions, Inc. (FMSI), a provider of business intelligence solutions for banks and credit unions, announced today that Meritrust Credit Union (Meritrust) has adopted FMSI’s Teller Management System™ (TMS) and has been utilizing the system successfully over the last several months. The $822 million Kansas-based financial institution can now accommodate their demanding branch scheduling process at their 14-branch locations with a more sophisticated approach.
"We have a very rich paid-time-off program, including our regular employees receiving five weeks off per year, and when we changed our policy to motivate employees to essentially use their days before the end of the year, it became an extremely hectic scheduling environment,” says Byron Stout, VP of Human Resources at Meritrust. “FMSI’s solution not only streamlines our complicated branch network scheduling process through an online engine, but also allows us to optimize our branch staff—leading to a considerable improvement in our teller line productivity.”
The Teller Management System™ schedules tellers based on forecasted transaction volumes, thus helping financial institutions gain better control of labor costs while increasing service levels.
"FMSI’s reports or The Teller Management SystemTM reports provide me with a third party reference to help validate important staffing decisions,” adds Stout. “It’s very nice not having to rely on gut feelings anymore, especially when deciding whether or not to replace teller turnover. In some cases we have learned from the FMSI that just tweaking current staff schedules is sufficient instead of adding an additional FTE.”
“Without the right business intelligence, most financial institutions are not equipped to make a thorough evaluation of teller performance levels,” says W. Michael Scott, President/CEO of FMSI. "FMSI has more than 20 years of experience helping banks and credit unions improve the productivity of their staff through meaningful business intelligence. Our unique solutions for measuring and forecasting transaction volumes on a monthly basis regularly reveal areas for better service and increased productivity."
