Your financial services clients are now selecting their services based on the level of personal service and privacy provided. They require easy-to-use digital technologies that give them greater control over their data. This is the driving force of the digital transformation, and it’s why so many credit unions are now turning to digital technology. In this new post, we’ll explore the digital transformation and what it means for financial services providers around the country.
I remember when report cards used to be distributed in a manner which we aptly called, “they got sent home.” Mind you, while most of us did not go to the second grade to become couriers, that is what we became: deliverers of paper report cards filled out in blue or black ink (pencil if we were lucky) stuffed into yellow envelopes with just a peep of the reporting metrics protruding from the half-circle cutout.
Thankfully, we are not the only ones to have graduated.
K-12 education is stuck between a rock and a hard place. This is nothing new. We want the best for our children, and many times, education is the top-funded program in a state’s budget.

Most schools have some form of digital document filing system, but this may be as elementary as a Windows directory, or a difficult-to-use student information system (SIS) with a clunky document attachment mechanism. Some school systems still rely on paper-based forms and manual paper workflows, which require more time and paper management.

There are four letters making waves across the pond and causing a ripple effect in the United States. Those letters are “GDPR,” and businesses are being forced to take note of these new regulations in the European Union and as they relate to companies and privacy measures in America.

The primary aim is to provide greater control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify privacy regulations for international businesses. Basically, a complete overhaul of how businesses process and handle data.
