Diana Dykstra, CEO, Purchases System for Management System Efficiency
Lompoc, CA -- Coast Hills Federal Credit Union is the latest to purchase Cardwell’s Connections Online strategic plan implementation software.
"Connections Online is a tool that we will use to increase our productivity by adding a new level of efficiency in our management processes," said Diana Dykstra, President/CEO of Coast Hills. "We plan to use the Quick Start program to kick start our year, which includes aggressive goals and business priorities."
Connections Online, developed by Cardwell, is a web-based application that connects every member of an organization or a business for the purpose of communication, team building, strategic plan implementation, value reinforcement, information management, people management, and project management. The CEOs and management teams who use it agree on two major benefits: it builds teamwork and trust, and it makes their jobs easier.
