Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) June 23, 2015
FMSI, a leading workforce optimization vendor for banks and credit unions, announced today United Heritage Credit Union (UHCU) has achieved a 15 percent decrease in its labor cost per transaction with the help of FMSI’s Omnix Staff Scheduler™, Omnix Interactive Dashboard™ and Omnix Performance Analytics™ solutions. The $815 million Texas-based financial institution initially rolled-out the FMSI staff management system to maximize employee productivity across its 13 retail branch locations.
“Due to the difficulty in manual tracking and the frustration associated with trying to predict future account holder traffic, we had nearly given up on our internal workforce optimization approach,” says Sebrina Crawford, Senior VP / Chief Operations Officer at UHCU. “When we discovered FMSI’s employee scheduler, we found exactly what we were looking for—a system that would help us put the right number of front-line staff at the right place at the right time. This more sophisticated scheduling approach has eliminated the guesswork out of our staffing process, helping us improve our staff productivity by 20 percent over the last year.”
FMSI’s branch staff scheduler and reporting 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, FMSI’s solution quickly empowers management teams with easy-to-read and actionable business intelligence.
“We have a great responsibility to spend our members’ money wisely,” adds Crawford. “Staffing our branches optimally, with FMSI’s solutions, is a perfect example of getting the most out of our investments—resulting in over $150,000 in annualized labor cost savings.”
“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 25 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."
