CU 2.0 Fintech Friday: Wunderite

It’s CU 2.0 Fintech Friday! Today, Chris Otey sits down with Wunderite to discuss all things credit union, fintech, and digital innovation. (Hopefully we won’t discuss any digital distractions for CEOs…)

Have you ordered anything online in the last year? In case you haven’t, here’s a little preview of what you can expect:

First, you’ll go onto whatever ecommerce site you’re shopping at. Maybe it’s Best Buy, maybe it’s B&H Photo, or maybe you like the Amazon experience. It doesn’t matter. The point is, you’re going to buy a thing from the convenience of your couch (or the subway, or in an airport bathroom during a layover). Maybe you’re not wearing shoes.

Whatever. It’s convenient.

Then, somehow, that thing you ordered? It’s on your doorstep the next day.

The whole process, from searching, to ordering, to receiving, took you minimal time and effort. If you knew what you were after from the start, and if you had your shipping and payment information saved, the whole thing could have taken you two minutes total.

Try buying insurance like that.

No, really. Good luck.

Wunderite Makes Buying Insurance Easier

That whole digital shopping thing is very fast and convenient. It should be even faster when there’s no physical product to ship.

So, why is it so dang hard to buy insurance? Why does it so often take more than an hour to apply? Why do you need to sign so many pieces of physical paper? Why do you have to put on your clothes and commute to see a provider?

So, the main problem is that the whole system is outdated. There shouldn’t be paperwork. There shouldn’t be filing cabinets.

And although they’re a step up, there shouldn’t be complex digital forms that get manually updated into other systems.

The whole insurance application ecosystem should be digitized and automated.

Wunderite is making that happen.

They’re partnering with credit unions to significantly speed up and streamline the entire insurance application process.
