FTSI Helps Rivermark Credit Union Complete Stunning Branch Transformation

Customer Story: Rivermark Community CU Transforms for the Digital Age

Rivermark Community Credit Union, with the help of FTSI, implemented NCR Interactive Tellers at its Gresham branch and its members could not be happier. In addition to increasing membership (including 400 new account types the first month alone), Rivermark CU experienced a substantial increase in the types of banking products members utilize. 


“We know that the way our members interact with our branch staff is changing, and it was important for us to give our members the same personal service but with more flexible hours and greater access to our specialized expertise.” - Scott Burgess, President/CEO, Rivermark


FTSI helped Rivermark introduce Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) in its branches, walk-ups, and drive-ups to free up employees to assist members and the results were fantastic.

  • Drive-Up teller lane transaction times reduced from 8 minute average to 2.5 minutes
  • In-branch transaction time reduced from 4.5 minutes to 2.5 minutes
  • In-branch “line” wait time reduced from 4.5 minutes to less than 2 minutes
  • 20% of total transactions occur during the new extended hours
  • The #1 Sales Channel going up 1.5 times
  • Staff freed up to provide members more advanced financial services
  • 60% increase in branch membership
  • 8,000 sessions per month totaling over 12,000 transactions (average of 3 transactions per session)
