In addition to the number of credit union contracts signed, Eltropy received several industry recognitions for the quality of its product and commitment to the credit union industry. Accolades include being chosen by CUNA Strategic Services as the best text messaging solution for credit unions.
“In addition to an unmatched feature set, an impressive list of integrations with credit union systems and a desire to focus their business solely on credit unions, Eltropy provides an effective way to communicate with members in a secure and compliant manner,” said Eric Gelly, President of CUNA Strategic Services.
