The story

The Credit Unions’ FinTech domain often can be quite competitive with dozens of Credit Unions going out of business every year. And, by their nature, Credit Unions are mostly community-oriented while banks are profit-focused – creating fundamental challenges for Credit Unions to compete effectively against banks.

Our customer’s ambition was to build a SaaS Data Analytics platform that enabled Credit Unions to compete better by being able to:

  • be more aware of how well they are performing
  • provide them with measurable and quantifiable tools around the value they provide to their members
  • help them focus on communities most needing access to affordable financial services and products
  • receive grants and certifications from the US government

After a substantial development effort of over 15,000 person hours, the first version was released to the market. The product received high recognition on the market and B2B renewal rates increased from ~50% to ~85%, and within the first six months, the tool was adopted by over 70 Credit Unions, representing over $30 billion in assets and 2.5 million members.

Even after launch, Varyence continues helping this customer as a technical partner, providing ongoing enhancements and support, helping our customer position this product based upon market feedback, and managing a dedicated development team focused on supporting our customers growth objectives.
