SAN FRANCISCO — NAFCU Services Corporation ( today announced the winners of its 2011 Innovation Awards at NAFCU’s 44th Annual Conference & Exhibition at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. Each year, NAFCU Services recognizes three of its Preferred Partners for outstanding, innovative solutions recently introduced to the credit union market.

The NAFCU Services 2011 Innovation Award winners are: 

  • Affinion Group – for its Flex Checking, a program that addresses the question of free versus fee checking. It offers members value-added benefits in exchange for a fee. Customizable to drive desired behaviors, Flex Checking offers sustainable profitability to a credit union in addition to enhanced member value. 
  • Allied Solutions – for its CenterPoint Client Portal, a one-stop shop of integrated applications and partnerships for end-to-end collateral management. It includes insurance tracking; claims filing; status and history; repossession and remarketing requests; submission and tracking; collection processing; and automated claims filing. 
  • Insuritas – for its online, private-label insurance agency portal which allows a credit union to convert traffic into revenue by enabling direct ecommerce (purchase of a wide array of insurance products) on its website. Members shop, compare and purchase inside the credit union’s web portal.

The winners were selected by the NAFCU Services Advisory Committee, which is composed of executives from across the country from credit unions of all sizes.

“We had more applications than ever before, making 2011 the most difficult selection process ever,” said David Frankil, president of NAFCU Services. “Most of the applications focused on helping credit unions replace lost revenue, either directly with new solutions or by making existing solutions more efficient and effective. It shows how committed the Preferred Partners are to helping credit unions address their most pressing challenges.”

Representatives from Affinion Group, Allied Solutions, and Insuritas will accept their awards at a reception Tuesday night at NAFCU’s Annual Conference. Attendees interested in learning more about these companies can visit their booths in the NAFCU Services Preferred Partner Pavilion in the exhibition hall.
