Boeing Group's Home Banking Is Taking Off


Arndorfer, James B., American Banker


Boeing Employees Credit Union flirted with introducing home banking for a year before finally going live on Oct. 1.

Making a commitment seems to have paid off for the Seattle credit union, the country's fourth largest. In three months, nearly 5,000 of its 180,000 members have signed up and demand hasn't let up yet.

And Robert Jensen, national sales manager for electronic banking products for Portland, Ore.-based CFI ProServices Inc., contends that the $7.6 million figure is too low. He noted that CFI, the largest provider of home banking systems for credit unions, claimed more than 30 credit unions as customers during 1994.

Fear and cost-cutting are two forces driving the industry's movement toward home banking. …
