TORONTO, June 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - United Federal Credit Union (United), one of the top 100 largest federally-insured credit unions in the U.S, has partnered with Coconut Software to offer more streamlined appointment scheduling to its members and non-members.
"By providing members with new ways to interact with credit unions, Coconut Software is committed to enhancing the member experience," said Katherine Regnier, CEO of Coconut Software. "From first contact to final resolution, by maintaining a credit union's personal touch across the digital space and keeping the door open for business, we aim to create a positive experience for everyone involved."
The new platform allows people to quickly and easily schedule appointments with member service advisors, business service advisors, or mortgage advisors in-person or online.

"Scheduling appointments online is another step in giving members the ability to interact with our team when and how they choose, and makes more efficient use of their time."
