WSECU Extends Google Gadgets
Puts Fuze knowledge base content where members want it

Seattle, Wash. – (February 5, 2008) – Washington State Employees Credit Union has leveraged the Fuze knowledge base and Web services to allow fast and easy content access to members using Google Gadgets. Gadgets are mini applications added to a webpage, Google Desktop or iGoogle homepage.

WSECU’s gadget allows members and prospects to view current rates, find branch locations, and run a variety of financial calculators. The rate and calculator content is easily managed real-time by WSECU staff using the Fuze Suite knowledge base. The Fuze Suite also enables WSECU to readily manage the level of editorial control over the content and selectively define who can see what.

Tony Hildesheim, WSECU’s VP of IT said, “Our Fuze online knowledge base provides up-to-date, broad content from a single location for all our staff and members. We wanted to be able to also deliver this content to our members where they want to see it. We already use the Fuze Web services in our mobile banking platform, so we knew it was perfect for creation of a Google Gadget. In the end, it only took us a few hours to create the gadget.”

“It’s great seeing our customers quickly extract real value from our Web services,” said Chuck Van Court, President and founder of Fuze. “I can hardly wait to see what they will do with what’s in our upcoming release!”
