Alliant Receives Technology Excellence Award for New Online Loan Application Platform


Alliant Credit Union was recently honored with a 2018 Excellence Award, which recognizes outstanding approaches to technology challenges with potential for universal application across the credit union movement.

The award was presented by the CUNA Technology Council, a national network comprised of more than 800 credit union technology experts across the country.

Alliant earned the award for its entry, entitled “Consumer Lending Platform.” The entry outlined the research, development and implementation of Alliant’s new digital loan application platform, which simplifies the customer experience from start to finish and vastly improves employee productivity.

This award builds on the two Excellence Awards Alliant won in 2017 for the development of its completely revamped mobile banking app and for the credit union’s cross-functional approach to innovation through its inaugural Hackathon.

Award winners were recognized at the CUNA Technology Council’s 23rd annual conference Sept. 12-15 in San Francisco. For more information on the Excellence Awards and the complete list of winners, visit Council Awards Programs.
