Alliant Credit Union adds Google “Save to Drive” functionality to Alliant Online Banking
October 01, 2013 | Alliant Credit Union
Alliant Credit Union today announced the addition of Google’s “Save to Drive” functionality into Alliant Online Banking. Developed with assistance from Business Data, Inc. (BDI), Alliant’s provider for eStatements and eTaxes, this technology will make it possible for Alliant members to save their Alliant account statements and tax forms directly to a secure location on Google Drive with the click of a single button.
Save to Drive gives Alliant Online Banking users a one-step method to safely and securely archive their Alliant account statements and tax forms to their Google Drive folder. It eliminates the steps needed to download the item to their hard drive and then save the file to a backup drive. Once an Alliant member saves their information to Google Drive, it is accessible from wherever they are, on whatever Internet-connected device they are using. And if they want to allow a spouse or other family member to access the file, the member can easily share any file on their drive with anyone they choose.
"Our members will appreciate the simplicity of being able to save their Alliant files to Google Drive with a single click of a button,” said George Rudolph, Alliant’s Senior Vice President of Operations & Technology. “Another advantage for our members is that Google Drive technology enables members who are traveling to access their files from anywhere, even if they don’t bring their laptop with them on a trip,” said Rudolph.
BDI utilized the Google Software Development Kit to create this simple, one-click Save to Drive process. “We are pleased this implementation will directly benefit Alliant members,” said Paul Holtzman, BDI President and CEO. “The success of this project would not have been possible without the strong partnership shared by our organizations and Alliant members should look forward to similar innovations in the future.”
