Unifying Data in the Cloud with Arkalytics

ORNL FCU wanted a solution that scaled as it grew, that did not require purchasing and maintaining physical hardware. ORNL FCU uses Arkalytics, a data analytics platform built on AWS, to integrate data from different banking systems and see it in a single dashboard view. 

The automated Arkalytics data pipeline processes and refreshes member data every night, so ORNL FCU has access to the latest data each morning.

Arkalytics processes more than 300 data files overnight, so we don’t have to constantly make sure the data is uploaded and processed correctly. When we’re in a morning meeting, we know we’re looking at the latest information.”

-Becky Curry, SVP of Data Intelligence at ORNL Federal Credit Union

Improving the Member Experience

Taking advantage of the Arkalytics data studio, ORNL FCU quickly developed a new transaction heat map dashboard, which displays a detailed transaction analysis by day of the week, time of day, and branch location to optimize staffing levels across 28 physical branches.
With the transaction heat map, we can right-size staff within each branch because we can see exactly how many employees we need at each location. This positively impacts member service because we have the right number of staff, particularly at branches with higher traffic.”
