Credit Union Member Acquisitions Success

Find out what credit union professionals have to say about Experian's role in helping them find and acquire new members.


Member acquisition: Target and acquire new members using data analytics.

How do you find the best new members while mitigating risk?

Carrie Shumway, Arizona Federal Credit Union

Our biggest business challenge right now that we’re facing is loan production.

Jim Block, Baxter Credit Union

Growing our business in a safe, responsible manner.

Carrie Shumway

Finding those qualified members that we need to target and make appropriate offers to.

Jim Block

Making sure we’re not taking on any adverse selection as we’re continuing to grow our membership.

Carl Rohr, Sound Credit Union

We’ve just been really impressed with the level of expertise that we’re able to garner from the analysts.

Carrie Shumway

The products help us target those, both the members and non-members, that potentially have a need for a product or a service.

How do you identify the right prospects?

Carrie Shumway

We’ve engaged in a prescreen process multiple times with Experian.

Carl Rohr

I’d say prior to Experian, we had higher losses on the prescreens than we have since we implemented them with Experian. It’s just a bit more sophisticated development of criteria.

Carrie Shumway

We use a daily triggers file for auto triggers and mortgage triggers.

Jim Block

One of the things we’ve been able to do is utilize the TAPS (Total Annual Plastic Spend) product and the Income Insight product to help identify which members are going to be the most interested in specific credit card types. That’s helped us improve our response rates of our credit card offer campaigns.

Carl Rohr

We recently did a HELOC prescreen for the first time. We were the first one in our market to do that. It was really successful. We’ve generated record volumes of home equity lines of credit as a result of that.
