The award was presented at the Bank Administration Institute’s (BAI) Retail Delivery Conference Nov. 18-20 in Orlando, Fla. MoneyTracker is a personal financial management application that enables online banking users to budget and track their accounts, spending habits, net worth, and other information. This solution can be added to any financial institution’s existing online banking solution. When announcing the Best of Show winner, Rudy Pereira, council chair and senior vice president of operations and technology for Alliant CU in Chicago, said he was impressed with Jwaala’s innovative products, including MoneyTracker. “With MoneyTracker, online banking applications can add an innovative personal financial management feature that members will find very useful and distinct from other online banking experiences,” he said. Kelly Dowell, Jwaala's director of business development said: “We feel we have a solution that can help credit unions of all sizes deliver something truly unique and valuable. Something that will not only improve member loyalty but something that can differentiate credit unions, all while fostering consumer financial literacy in a time of real need. The CUNA Technology Council's award lets us know that our vision of online banking is on target and shared by others throughout the credit union industry." Since 2001, the CUNA Technology Council has presented the Best of Show award to the exhibitor that demonstrates a commitment to delivering technology that will further the growth of products and services in the credit union marketplace. Vendors’ products are evaluated according to affordability, the benefit to credit unions and their members, a commitment to open standards, currently in use, and health of the company.
