The World Council of Credit Unions (Woccu) has launched an app to help credit union professionals from across the world to engage with each other.
The app enables users to create a profile and connect it with their other social media profiles. In addition, they will be able to follow colleagues and send messages to each other by using the app. By sharing articles and making comments they can also earn points. The top app user by December 2016 will win a conference registration to the World Credit Union Conference in Vienna, Austria.
Around 43% of the world’s population now uses a smart phone. Earlier this year, Woccu also launched an app for its annual conference in Belfast, which helped delegates communicate and share resources, pictures and information from the event. The conference looked at the increasing role of mobile technology and how devices can be used to improve member relationship and engagement.
“We understand that people have limited time and money to attend conferences and dig through the Internet for information,” said Brian Branch, president and chief executive of Woccu.
“That is why we created the Woccu app; to bring credit union professionals to a space where they can network and drive the conversations that need to happen to advance the movement.”
