MoveCU wins Next Level Achievement Award at industry conference

Only fintech honored out of 10 awards at the 2017 CRIF Lending Solutions Forum

SANTA BARBARA, CA (June 13, 2017) — MoveCU, Inc., a US-based financial services fintech serving the credit union industry, announced today it received one of only ten 2017 CRIF Next Level Achievement Awards. The award was presented at the 2017 CRIF Lending Solutions Forum, held in San Antonio, TX. MoveCU was the only fintech, out of five credit unions and four banks to be honored at the conference. “These awards are well deserved given how committed these clients are to serving their customers and members,” said Scarlett Shipp, President, Synergy division, CRIF Lending Solutions. “We are extremely proud to partner with these institutions as they continue to serve as major catalysts of innovation in our industry.”

Online Marketplace Access Provided to CRIF Lending Solutions LOS Users
MoveCU provides very large volumes of online loan and deposit shoppers an easy-to-complete loan application and automatically sends approved loan applications to the users of CRIF Lending Solutions’ loan origination systems. The application, along with their Experian© credit bureau sourced credit score, meets the exact lending criteria of the client credit union. A MoveCU provided management dashboard provides client control, including any adjustments to their lending criteria, loan offers and results monitoring.

Several Credit Unions Committed to Using System
Several credit unions have committed to using the MoveCU system, including Meritrust Credit Union, KS, who also won at the recently concluded CRIF conference. “We are excited by the possibilities of this new lending system” said Heather Gates, Director of Direct Consumer Lending at Meritrust. “We see this as the future of automated lending, and we want to be part of that future” continued Gates. MoveCU estimates it should be able to reach thousands of online loan and deposit shoppers per month who live in Meritrust’s eligible Kansas counties.

A Millennial Inspired Apply-Compare-Fund Experience
MoveCU’s comparative shopping program was developed by the company’s Millennial generation founders, Jason Smith and Kevin Dawson. Their objective was to simplify and streamline access to higher value credit union lending. “While virtually all online shoppers want the value credit unions provide, Millennials need it more than most” said Smith. “We are making it easier for all online shoppers to use a credit union” continued Smith.
