Cathedral Corp. Earns Preferred Partner Status from NAFCU Services

ROME, NY—June 29, 2011—Cathedral Corp. has been selected by NAFCU Services Corp. as its Preferred Partner for printed and electronic financial communication programs, personalized direct mail and e-marketing services. These solutions include statements and many other forms of communication and marketing initiatives.

Statement printing has evolved from a straightforward service of printing and mailing member account information to a far more advanced and differentiated solution, including cross-promotion and targeted marketing opportunities. Cathedral helps credit unions maximize these opportunities by using a sophisticated technology that analyzes and applies existing member data to create cross-promotional checks, statements and invoices, highly targeted direct mail and a wide range of member-care communications, including electronic communications such as e-statements.

Cathedral’s intelligence-driven communications are aimed at enhancing a credit union’s member relationships. Its solutions add value to monthly and daily documents, generating new business opportunities, building relationships and helping credit unions compete in the marketplace.

“Credit unions have an immense amount of member data that’s just waiting to do more. We take that valuable data and make it work for the credit union with highly targeted marketing campaigns,” explains Marianne Gaige, president and CEO of Cathedral Corporation. “Whatever the goals of the credit union are—attracting new members, converting members into new business—we can help reach them by maximizing marketing opportunities among communications that the credit union, in many cases, is already doing.”

“Printing statements used to be a simple process, but with technology comes all sorts of opportunities to leverage data. Cathedral’s individualized data-driven approach to member communications is unmatched,” said NAFCU Services president David Frankil. “Cathedral really takes the time to understand a credit union’s business goals to build a multi-channel communications solution that’s reliable and effective.”

To earn the distinction of Preferred Partner, providers undergo an extensive qualification and evaluation process, including consideration and approval by the NAFCU Services Products & Services Advisory Committee comprised of NAFCU member credit union executives. Learn more.
