NACUSO Spring 2021 Focus...
Coming out of COVID: The Future of CUs
The pandemic was an event that was totally unexpected and has fundamentally changed our view of the world. It changed how we work, how we interact with others, how we identify and deal with risks, how we employ technology, how we shop for services, and how we think about our future.

As we begin to emerge from the pandemic restrictions, now is the time for reflection on some fundamental questions.

We asked our Platinum and Gold Partners to share their feedback. We hope you enjoy their insight within our latest issue of the NACUSO Focus.

Join NACUSO Gold Partner Alacriti along with Celent to Learn More About Real-Time Payments in the U.S. Market

The U.S. has come a long way in its journey to real-time payments, with TCH and Zelle in market and FedNow just around the corner. COVID-19 has accelerated that demand to move to real-time. Yet many financial institutions remain unconvinced of the need to move, with less than 3% of financial institutions signed up today.
 
In this Banking Exchange hosted webinar Celent’s Gareth Lodge, Senior Analyst, Global Payments, and Alacriti’s Mark Ranta, Payments Practice Lead, discuss the findings in the Celent research report, Real-Time Payments in the US Market: Speeding Up or Slowing Down? A Call to Arms.
 
On June 16 at 11:00 a.m. PDT | 2:00 p.m. EDT, register to learn:
      U.S. specific challenges for payments overall
      Why there’s been a slow start in real-time payments
      How the picture is actually better than it seems
      A real-time payment isn’t just a faster ACH—the important use cases for FIs
      Celent’s outlook for the future of payments
 
Please note: All registrants will receive a copy of the webinar playback.
