Financial Institutions, Health Insurance Providers, and other innovative organizations select Larky for Member Engagement in 2017

Ann Arbor, MI - January 11, 2017

2016 was a year of strong growth as Larky added fantastic new clients in the US and Canada and continued working with our existing clients on building their engagement programs.

In Q4 of 2016, Larky launched member engagement programs for Achieva Credit Union (Florida), United Teletech Financial Federal Credit Union (New Jersey), Unitus Community Credit Union (Oregon), and Credit Union One (Michigan). We’re thrilled to partner with each of these credit unions as they expand their member outreach and engagement with local businesses.

Each program is designed to engage members using the distinctive branding elements of the credit union and offers from local businesses that are unique to the region. Each white label app reflects the brand personality of the credit union while leveraging Larky’s proprietary geolocation notification technology to provide local perks to members at the moment the local offer is most relevant.

January 2017 will also see new Larky engagement platform launches for 1st Choice Savings And Credit Union (Alberta, Canada), First Alliance Credit Union (Minnesota), and Neighborhood Trust Federal Credit Union (New York) among others. We’re excited to support the member engagement strategies of each of these financial institutions.

As we look toward Q1 of 2017, we are excited to get development work underway for the new clients we signed at the end of 2017. Health Alliance Plan (Michigan), Red Rocks Credit Union (Colorado), St. Lawrence Federal Credit Union (New York), Blackhawk Credit Union (Wisconsin), Greylock Federal Credit Union (Massachusetts) represent a selection of the deals closed in Q4. Members of each organization can look forward to great local perks and mobile technology that alerts them to these exciting offers. We are thrilled that our current client The State Bank (Michigan) is expanding the perks program we originally launched in 2015 to include more great local merchants for the bank’s customers.

We’ve rolled out exciting new features to our apps that enable organizations to communicate directly with their members using push notifications. More on new features soon!

We are looking to strong growth in 2017 and are thrilled you are part of this journey with us.
