OUR Journey

It all started in the summer of 2003 when a large Californian credit union teamed with The Poulton Consulting Group and Performance Systems International to conceptualize, design, and build a system for perfecting the members’
account opening experience.

At that time, the CU’s President and CEO stated, “If credit unions are to prosper and grow, they must stop competing on price and improve member service”. For our founding Credit Union, that meant rethinking how they served members. That’s why Better Branches Technology was founded—a desire to significantly improve member service at American credit unions.

Today, our focus is the same as it was in 2003; providing innovative, affordable software solutions that help credit unions deliver the highest standard of service. Our products have continued to evolve and adapt to credit unions’ changing needs ranging from 10,000 to 750,000 members.
