The widespread popularity of Skype and Facetime show that consumers love video. As far as credit unions are concerned, there are two video categories that they can use to better serve members: in-branch and remote video.

Currently, in-branch (which includes kiosks, ATMs or video-equipped rooms within branches and other CU facilities) is the most popular, but some analysts argue that in-branch video is only a temporary solution. They contend that the future lies in the remote delivery of video, AKA Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).

Key Takeaway: If your CU is considering adding either in-branch or remote video (or both), we suggest that you look at our Branch Video Meeting Queues module which provides the member service management component missing from video conferencing systems.
