Global Credit Union Increases Project Completion by 133% with Lytho

About Global Credit Union

Global Credit Union, a prominent financial institution headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, chartered and regulated under the authority of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), stands as a formidable presence in the credit union industry within the United States. With assets ranking among the top 20 in the nation, and membership numbers placing them among the largest credit unions, Global Credit Union’s influence is significant.

This case study examines their recent rebranding journey from Alaska USA to Global Credit Union which launched in April 2023, marking a pivotal moment in their trajectory.

The History of Collaboration Between Global Credit Union and Lytho

The story of Global Credit Union’s transformation with Lytho dates back to 2016-2017. At that time, they were operating as Alaska USA Federal Credit Union and their marketing workflows were mired in inefficiency. In-office collaboration meant physically passing folders around to collect feedback, a time-consuming and error-prone process. Tracking projects, workloads, and timelines became an intricate web to navigate. Enter Lytho: a catalyst for change. Instead of exchanging files back and forth, teams could seamlessly add remarks to a single file, fostering collaboration and efficiency.

Launching a New Brand

Alaska USA’s journey with Lytho took a significant leap when they acquired Global Credit Union and embarked on an effort to rebrand the newly united organization under the Global Credit Union name. To accommodate this monumental undertaking, the marketing team set up a dedicated Lytho platform instance, separate from their existing platform. Simultaneously, they welcomed several new marketing team members as part of an acquisition. Lytho played a pivotal role in merging the two teams seamlessly, integrating them into the day-to-day operations while maintaining a high-level overview of all activities.

Benefits of Choosing Lytho

What led Global Credit Union to choose Lytho? The answer lies in Lytho’s ability to address their unique marketing needs. Lytho’s intake functionality, coupled with efficient project proofing and asset delivery, became the linchpin of their success. The ease with which these tasks could be accomplished was the deciding factor. By combining Lytho’s workflow tool with Digital Asset Management (DAM), the company streamlined the collection and sharing of assets, constructed new brand guidelines, and fortified their brand identity.
