CUs should be looking at how to provide exceptional ongoing service to borrowers, and what these services can simultaneously do for members and employee productivity.Fail to offer self-service options. Enabling qualified borrowers to adjust their loan terms online is an easy, self-service option. Members can opt for this to increase monthly cash flow while CUs increase yield on a loan without extending additional funds.View the loan as a one-time transaction. Instead, see it as an extension of an ongoing relationship and evaluate ways to connect with members.Make the paperwork a hassle. Members will be more likely to exit the process or go elsewhere for their loan if completing, signing and submitting documents is a burden. continue reading »
