This project is part of the CU*BASE Active Beta program. Active (live) beta allows us to get software out in the field more quickly by expanding the testing process into a real-world environment, in place of our more typical QC testing process. This means we need your help testing these tools! Your feedback will help us continue to refine and fine-tune the functionality, so let us know what you think! More Online Help information will be added to this screen as the Dashboard evolves. Learn more about the Active Beta program

Analyzing and trending your interest accrual has never been easier!  Daily accrued interest reports have been available within CU*BASE for years; however, the information has often been siloed and difficult to analyze.  The Loan Interest Accrual Dashboard takes your daily accrual report to the next level by introducing historical trending, built in analysis, and deeper level of detail providing you with greater insight into your operations and the health of your lending portfolio. This dashboard, along with the remaining accrual analysis dashboards, Certificate Accruals and Shares Accruals, give powerful insight into your credit union's daily accrual activity. As dynamic dashboards with real-time results, these replace the once daily printed reports previously used to convey the information, allowing CEOs and data analysts to view specific analyses for specific GLs, branches, dates, and types.

Note: OTB loan products, 360 calculation type loans, and credit card (Process Type V) loans will not be represented in this dashboard.

Data for this dashboard was first collected on 5/23/2017.
