Affinity Federal Credit Union Increases Member Adoption With Deeper Integrations With MX

Leading credit union achieves 26 percent increase in total external accounts, improves insights and enhances member experiences without additional marketing spend

MX, the leading financial data platform enabling organizations to develop, launch, and power new money experiences, today announced that Affinity Federal Credit Union has significantly increased member adoption of its digital tools, and the total number of its members aggregating external accounts, over the past two years, by using MX. Specifically, Affinity has seen the following increases:

  • 26 percent increase in total external accounts
  • 23 percent increase in users aggregating external accounts
  • 22 percent increase in total users

“When more of our members aggregate their external accounts, it allows us to capture a much larger data set from which we can gain further insight into ways to more effectively serve them,” said Shireen Davis, AVP, Digital Information Technology at Affinity Federal Credit Union.

Over time, Affinity’s money management product (powered by MX) was buried in the online experience, making it hard for users to find it. This led to low adoption and engagement rates. As a result, Affinity implemented MX widgets in more prominent and accessible locations on its online dashboard — and consequently increased engagement by 11 percent and external accounts added by an additional 11 percent, within six months.

Motivated by the successful early adoption rates in the first several months, Affinity made another push by introducing *mobile* widgets in the offering. This led to an additional 33 percent increase in active users in just three months.

“By including these widgets on mobile, our members have direct access to the tools and can interact with their money and with Affinity straight out of their pocket,” said Davis. “The convenience for our members to view their accounts and spending information, as well as the ease of setting up budgets for all their accounts from the convenience of their smartphones is what we’re most excited about in this new offering.”

It’s that enhanced offering that brings Affinity closer to its mission of pushing profits back to its members in the form of great rates, fewer fees, and better banking experience.
