Intelligent conversational chat technology is on its way to the 174,000+ members of Michigan-based United Federal Credit Union. The institution, which serves customers in neighboring Indiana and Ohio as well as in Arkansas, North Carolina, and Nevada, has teamed up with Finn AI to add the chatbot service to its suite of digital banking offerings.
United FCU will integrate the technology into its LivePerson-based live chat system, which provides credit union members with immediate assistance for routine queries. The integration will enable human agents to spend more time on complex customer services issues and allow the automated technology from Finn AI to handle everything from account access problems to forgotten passwords.
“The pandemic has increased the need for financial services companies to provide a superior customer experience,” said Finn AI CEO Jake Tyler. “United realizes the importance that digital and AI have in delivering on this promise. We look forward to partnering with them as they lay out the future of their customer service offering.”
