The AI week was amazing. The small classroom size assisted in allowing for a very open forum. All questions were answered in depth and the instructors were happy to ensure a complete grasp of the tools. They took time to answer our specific needs and I came out of the situation with many queries that I needed already built. It was very educational.

If I could describe Asterisk Intelligence Week with one word, it would be data. As we continue to push into the digital age and beyond as an industry, understanding our members by using the data at our fingertips is vital for not only our survival but our flourishment! With this data, we begin to understand our members and can target them with products and services that would be beneficial to them. Furthermore, the data will help us streamline our costs, identify weak points, and provide us insights that would otherwise be lost.

 

The Asterisk Intelligence team provides a solid foundation to build on by working through various dashboards and explaining not only how to use them, but why. As the week progresses, you’ll be introduced to Query/Report Building, where you can harness just about any data point within CU*Base and put it into a report for review. With a restricted class size combined with all-day training, your questions will be answered and real-life examples created. Discussion and workshop times are built into the sessions, so your time is well-utilized. Data is here to stay – embrace the Asterisk Intelligence Week and dive in!

AI Week was phenomenal. Being a beginner in query, they were still able to teach me more than enough to let me be able to understand how it works and how I can better utilize this tool to dig for data. Also, going over all the dashboards opened my eyes to different ways we can use those to better suite our needs and our member’s needs. If you want to get a better understanding about query or dashboards, I highly recommend attending!

We were very pleased with the material covered in the query build and dashboard sessions. The expertise of the Asterisk Intelligence team helped us to create reports, and understand how to leverage many of the dashboards for data mining. All of this is helping us to streamline, and automate manual processes; therefore helping us to better serve or members.

This was one of the best on-site trainings CU*Answers has ever offered. The instructors were knowledgeable, organized, and helpful.
I highly recommend every credit union employee involved with data mining take this course.
