University Credit Union (UCU), based in Los Angeles and serving over 41,000 members of the university community, announced that it has embarked on a mission to enable the most seamless banking experience for its members powered by Interface’s Intelligent Virtual Assistants (IVA).
Through this partnership, UCU aims to offer a premier experience for their members by enhancing their member experience from digital to AI-first, leveraging an omni-channel Intelligent Virtual Assistant named Royce. With Royce, UCU aims to make member interactions across all channels highly personalized.
“We have been on a tremendous growth journey in the last 3 years. Our technology investments have played a pivotal role in this journey and we wanted to take it up a notch with AI. The communities we serve understand the possibilities with technology and have high expectations from our offerings. We continuously strive to offer the best member experience to them. We have extensively evaluated vendors to find the right partner for this initiative. Working with Interface will enable us to offer premier experiences to all our members and ensure we greatly improve efficiencies across the organization,” said Dr. David Tuyo, President and CEO of UCU.
In the initial phase, Royce will help members find information on the website and mobile app instantly and assist them in making decisions. In the following phases, its capabilities will expand to help with transactions, goal-setting, reminders and also to recommend the right products and services to members. In addition, Royce will soon power UCU’s contact center, so people who call in will get personalized assistance immediately.
