Madison, Wis. — The CUNA Technology Council presented its Best of Show Award to Bazaarvoice for its innovation in social commerce. The award was presented at CUNA’s 2011 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC), held Feb. 27- March 3, in Washington, D.C.

Bazaarvoice helps businesses capture, display, share, and analyze customer conversations across the digital space. Their use of technology and personalized services help global brands, including credit unions, build online communities that drive measurable business goals, making it easy for their members to share their opinions, knowledge, and experiences online.

When announcing the Best of Show winner, Rudy Pereira, council chair and senior vice president of operations and technology for Alliant CU in Chicago, said “Leveraging Bazaarvoice’s social solution to get member feedback will allow credit unions to find new ways to engage members, improve products and services, and to promote member advocacy.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the CUNA Technology Council for our work with some of the industry’s leading financial institutions,” said Joe Dauskurdas, Vice President of the Financial Services Division at Bazaarvoice. “We are extremely fortunate to partner with organizations like credit unions that recognize the value and power of tapping and amplifying members’ voices to drive business results and garner insights that help improve service offerings and increase member satisfaction.”

Since 2001, the CUNA Technology Council has presented the Best of Show award to the exhibitor that demonstrates a commitment to delivering technology that will further the growth of products and services in the credit union marketplace. Vendors’ products are evaluated according to affordability, the benefit to credit unions and their members, a commitment to open standards, currently in use, and health of the company.
