Filene is thrilled to bring credit unions a solution that translates our research into actionable results that will positively impact their members,” said Mark Meyer, Filene Research Institute CEO.
The QUEsocial/Filene Research partnership will provide credit unions with a cost effective social media solution that is easily implemented, scalable and relevant across the organization, from business development, recruiting, customer service, marketing and product development.
