Seattle, Wash. – (June 9, 2006) – Washington State Employees Credit Union (WSECU) reports that over the past three months alone, it has successfully responded to more than 120,000 member and employee inquiries using the Fuze Suite’s self-service and knowledge management products. For the same period, just over 3,000 inquiries (98 percent self-service percentage) required staff assistance and were proactively managed by the Fuze Suite within WSECU’s service levels. 

The Fuze Suite, branded the “Info Center” on www.wsecu.org, provides WSECU with a comprehensive, yet easy to use online member care solution that effectively and efficiently provides self-service and assisted support to members and staff alike. 

The knowledge base module of the Fuze Suite provides WSECU with a single and highly-searchable repository to house over 1,100 public and private knowledge items in various formats including: Q&As, MS Word documents, PDFs, Web pages, spreadsheets and multimedia files.

Tony Hildesheim, Assistant Vice President of Enterprise Systems for WSECU, said, “The Fuze Suite makes it easy for us to quickly and selectively extend timely information to all relevant parties from a single source. It also goes far beyond knowledge management by providing us with many other features critical for creating, tracking and leveraging a rich set of insights exposed during the support process.”  Hildesheim was a featured presenter at a recent Callahan & Associates’ webinar on “Digital Knowledge Management.”
