Imaging Solutions 2018 Contests

For 2018, CU*Answers Imaging Solutions in partnership with My Virtual Strongbox and eDOC Innovations are running three exciting contests. Winners will be announced the first week of October 2018, but you can follow along on this page. Each month, the top 5 contestants will be updated below.

This is a year long marathon, it’s not a sprint!

It’s not too late to get started! You don’t have to sign up for the contests, you only need to use the products.

  1. Contest period for all 3 contests: 10/01/2017 – 09/30/2018
  2. Entry to all 3 contests is automatic if you meet the criteria.
  3. Results will be posted online each month showing the top 5 in the lead for each contest

Here are the 3 Contests

Race to be the First Place eCloser!
The credit union with the most documented electronic loan closings during the contest period wins $10,000.
eSignature Explosion
The credit union with the most documents delivered via eSignature* during the contest period wins $1,000.
My Virtual StrongBox Dash for Cash
The credit union with the most new member registrations (as a percentage) during the contest period wins $1,000.

 


This month, I thought I’d take a second and share some thoughts on timing. Maybe you find yourself asking, “Why does it take two to three weeks to get last month’s contest results posted? We’re almost on to the next month!” Understand, sure seems like we could be more responsive eh? Well here’s some insight.

First, we need eDOC and VSB to compile numbers from their databases to show what activity took place for the month. VSB pretty straightforward simple month over month. eDOC numbers for eSigning, have to move on to Asterisk Intelligence where they query CU*BASE for closed loans for the month. Next, they melt the two results to learn of percentages of closed loans versus eSign loans. Remember that’s just one contest, they also need to get from Accounting the number of members for each CU in the contest, for the eDOCSignature explosion contest for total documents signed per member. That happens after billing which occurs on or about mid-month. With that in hand they can finally run the calculations to provide final results. Based on those I can write my take on them, and off to Web Services for posting! Whew! So, some insight on timing in case you were wondering. On to the results!

John’s Take On The Standings

john beauchamp

The winner in the online contest has been pretty apparent for some time. Auto Owners Credit Union has rocked out 100% of their loans via eClosing for the ENTIRE length of the contest. Congratulations on your eCulture and your 1st place status and prize money of $10,000!!

In our inHouse contest this winner hasn’t completed 100% but they did do nearly 90%!! MUNA Federal Credit Union takes the checkered flag in this race and is our 1st place eCloser in the inHouse contest winning $10,000!!

Congratulations both and congratulations to all who worked hard and participated and gave it an honest effort. Collectively you brought a lot of convenience to members, got business done remotely and learned to be better internet retailers! Good Job!

CEO’s what are you doing to drive an eClosing culture? Are you learning to earn electronically? Not sure where to begin? Contact John Beauchamp on our Imaging Solutions team so he can help you.

John’s Take On The Standings

john beauchamp

Alabama Law Enforcement took the prize in our Online eSignature Explosion contest. They were nearly double their nearest competitor when it came to interacting with members via eSign! They interacted at a rate of 109 documents per 1000 members average. It is therefore, my pleasure to congratulate them and award them a $1000 prize!

As for our inHouse eSignature explosion contest, WOW what a nail biter! MUNA FCU owned this contest for most of the year, but Frankenmuth credit union came out of nowhere and made it a contest in the last 3 months! It was Frankenmuth and MUNA neck and neck to the finish! Ultimately though Frankenmuth won! Therefore, it is with great pleasure we award $1000 to Frankenmuth Credit Union as the winner!

Think about that paper how can you interact with your members electronically? If you’re not using our Enhanced Online vault may be time to consider it. Start sending that fillable PDF for eSign. Great time to get using Virtual Signing Rooms in online banking and eDOCSignature packages! You should be questioning each piece of paper going to members and ask how you can make it more convenient.
