Wisconsin Credit Union Named in Computerworld Honors Program
SAN FRANCISCO - Marinette County Employees Credit Union was one of 10 Progress Software Corp. customers named Laureates in the 2005 Computerworld Honors 21st Century Achievement Awards program. The $14 million Wisconsin CU was nominated for reducing its monthly costs by 25% through its use of Progress Software tools deployed as part of the credit union's core processing relationship with Indiana-based Bradford-Scott Data Corp. (www.bradfordscott.com). The software enables account overdrafts and fees to be automatically tallied each morning, and loan payments and other account transfers scheduled for a recurring date. The credit union also benefits from a savings of at least two employee hours per day, according to the nomination. Representatives from Massachusetts-based Progress Software (www.progress.com) and the nominated organizations attended a medal ceremony held by Computerworld in their honor Monday at City Hall in San Francisco. The companies and organizations nominated for the Computerworld Honors Awards each provide a unique value to their end users, according to the computer industry publication.
