MSUFCU strongly believes that effective communication plays a key role in the success of an organization.

Our Mobile Information App for Staff enhances and strengthens communication within MSUFCU by providing an easy and convenient way for staff to access information regarding important events, news and announcements directly from their iPhone, iPad or Android mobile devices.

MSUFCU employees always have the latest details of upcoming staff meetings, charity events, credit union holidays and paydays right at their fingertips. Events can be integrated directly with users’ mobile devices so they can receive notifications prior to the start of events.

All of the events, news and announcements to be published are edited through an online website interface, making it easy to share information and keep everyone abreast of the latest developments at MSUFCU.

Our Mobile Information App for Staff system is comprised of three distinct apps including a native iPhone app, a native Android app and a web app.

The iPhone app is written in Objective C. The Android app is written in Java. The web app is implemented in PHP, JavaScript and a MySQL database backend.
