Verint® Systems today announced that American Eagle Federal Credit Union (AEFCU)—full-service, not-for-profit financial institution—is experiencing business and operational benefits from Verint’s GMT™ workforce management (WFM) software. The federal credit union is using the technology to create flexible schedules and minimize overtime.

AEFCU selected the workforce management solution based on its advanced forecasting and modeling capabilities. Within the first six months of implementation, its branch managers immediately gained a new level of visibility, enabling them to identify which locations were overstaffed, the transaction volumes and tasks taking place at each branch, and the modifications needed to align staffing levels accordingly.

Using the software’s predictive forecasting information, AEFCU reports that its branch staffing schedules have been fine-tuned to better meet demand and to improve flexibility by increasing the ratio of part-time to full-time workers from 16 percent to 25 percent. Within the first year, the financial institution reduced branch overtime by more than 86 percent. By the second year, that figure jumped to more than 96 percent. Further, across the two year period, AEFCU reduced full-time employee (FTE) costs by 14 percent through natural attrition and better forecasting.

“In the early stages of our technology search and review, we realized the need for a solution that offered extensive predictive capabilities, rather than one that resembled an Excel spreadsheet,” says Kevin Murray, vice president of branch operations and administration at American Eagle Federal Credit Union. “We spoke with other credit unions that were using the same WFM solutions we were evaluating. The feedback from these conversations made it clear—Verint’s GMT workforce management software was worth the investment to help meet both our staff scheduling needs, as well as manage the rising costs of additional branches.”

The WFM solution, which AEFCU purchased in December 2008, offers a unique, easy to understand graphical interface known as “workload fit.” It provides measurement of how closely workforce supply matches member service demand. Branch managers can easily determine whether they are overstaffed, which results in excellent service at a higher cost of service, or understaffed, which results in diminished member satisfaction. By optimizing its workforce and workload, AEFCU was able to utilize all resources to forecast full- and part-time branch staff by adjusting staff schedules, managing absences and generating reports with ease.

“With increasing cost pressures and a growing focus on member satisfaction, credit unions are turning to technology for creative solutions,” says Simon Angove, senior vice president of retail financial services, Enterprise Intelligence Solutions, Verint. “A workforce management system can help credit unions, such as AEFCU, deliver a better member experience at a much lower cost of labor.”

AEFCU remains the largest community credit union in Connecticut with plans for two additional branches in the next year. “We’ve experienced dramatic improvements in workforce scheduling using the Verint-GMT solution,” adds Murray. “The software has paid for itself in full through the first year of savings alone and is a testament to the benefits of implementing a flex schedule.”
