NEW YORK (PRWEB) September 30, 2020
Nancy Wu, Head of Sales and Support for SkyStem LLC, a leading provider of automated month-end close and account reconciliation software, along with the 121 Financial Credit Union CFO sat down with the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), a national trade association for both state- and federally chartered credit unions located in the United States, as they dive into the benefits of month-end close automation. The podcast pinpoints various ways to identifying an automation solution that fits their credit union’s needs, getting employees adopted with new tools and processes, and working through potential challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Since implementing ART, the solution has led to smarter ways of working, improved moral and happier team members,” said Benjamin Munday, CFO of 121 Financial Credit Union. “We value support very highly and SkyStem assured us they would be there for us. They have kept their promise and have really gone above and beyond in customer service.
At the end of every month or quarter, the credit union accounting team tackles the close process and the preparation of the credit union’s financial statements for publication. It requires extensive research and reconciliation on the part of the team and completing these tasks manually can be challenging. Many credit unions experience pain points in their process which is where automation tools can help streamline the close process, remove inefficiencies and allow teams to work more effectively together.
