The Credit Union has over $1.2 Billion in assets and serves over 50,000 members. Through its innovative service, it seeks to deepen its long-standing commitment to housing issues, green initiatives, financial literacy, and access to credit for low and moderate-income borrowers.

"Our credit union's story has always been about finding better ways to meet the needs of more members. Deploying Scienaptic’s AI is the next step in this journey, empowering us to better understand our members’ financial situations, and provide the appropriate solutions for them.”, said Tanya Tanaro, VP of Education & Consumer Lending at HUECU. “With Scienaptic’s AI platform, we will be able to automate our lending, approve more loans, and make personalized credit decisions that align with our values. This is a huge step forward, and we can't wait to see the positive impact it will have on our members and our community”.
