When UCCU chose Q2 as a digital banking provider, they were excited at the prospect of integrating MX products directly into their online experience. They knew that an MX integration would give their members guidance in managing their finances, resulting in greater loyalty and an improved ability to attract new members.
Because they were already familiar with the benefits that MX would provide their users, UCCU knew they wanted to do a major promotion in launching the product. Brad Norton, SVP of Marketing at UCCU, created internal marketing materials and also leveraged MX for video assets to increase engagement from day one.
Norton said, “We didn’t want to bury this product in any way. Instead, we wanted to put it front and center — showing our members what they could accomplish with it, getting them to really envision how this can inspire smart decisions, and help change their financial habits for the better.”
The promotion paid off. Within three months, 28 percent of UCCU members had adopted digital money management, and 17 percent of those users had added external accounts at an average of 4.1 accounts each. This means that these users are signing into UCCU to view all their finances in one place (and, by implication, becoming less and less likely to sign into UCCU’s competitors to do so). As a result, UCCU is quickly proving themselves as the primary financial institution in their region.
Norton added, “From integration to launch and beyond, we’ve been very pleased with the experience of working with MX. We couldn’t be happier with the fact that so many of our members have started getting their financial lives in order. This partnership brings us exactly what we’re looking to deliver to our members & we are really excited about it.”
