CUFX: Has its time arrived?

Tech Council members look for broader adoption.

Participants learned how they can begin integrating Credit Union Financial Exchange during a breakout session at the co-located CUNA Technology Council and CUNA Operations & Member Experience Council Conferences in San Francisco.

Credit Union Financial Exchange (CUFX), an industry changing initiative lead by the CUNA Technology Council, is a systems integration standard that connects applications to core processing systems.

CUFX allows credit unions to:

  • Improve member experience and employee efficiency.
  • Increase speed of delivery of new business functions industry wide.
  • Enable application innovation by reducing or eliminating repetitive, time-consuming customizations.

CUFX can greatly ease that burden.”
