Filene i3 seeks CUs for debt-management tool tests
MADISON, Wis. (5/21/09)--The Filene Research Institute’s i3 innovation group is looking for credit unions to implement a new, Web-based debt management tool to help credit union members control their finances. Debt in Focus helps members look at debt-to-income ratios and debt payment schedules, and then creates an action plan users can follow to control their finances. The tool does not ask users for their names, Social Security numbers or e-mail addresses. Filene is seeking credit unions to implement Debt in Focus to help refine the beta version. There is no charge for the beta version, since it is being developed further at Filene. Credit unions interested in the tool can attend one of two upcoming webinars scheduled for May 27 or June 11. Both begin at 1 p.m. CDT. To register for the webinars, use the link.
