Northern Community CU Plans Core Conversion
Share One said the $71 million Northern Communities Credit Union of Duluth, Minn., plans to convert to its NewSolutions core processing system in October.
Share One said Northern Communities CU scrutinized five core processors in its RFP process before selecting the Memphis, Tenn., CUSO, which now has nearly 90 credit union clients and its first in Minnesota.
Larry Champeaux, president/CEO at Northern Communities CU, said, “We plan an aggressive product offering that will include mobile banking with remote deposit capture, a personal financial management system, and other electronic services so we can be more relevant in this competitive environment.”
The 7,850-member Northern Communities currently runs on the Fiserv Spectrum platform, according to the Technology Survey from Callahan & Associates.
“Ever climb a really big hill, or even a mountain? If you have, you know it’s hard work but once you get there, the view is terrific. We’re climbing a similar mountain here at your credit union -- by installing a new core operations system that will make your experience with us better than ever,” a posting on the credit union’s website said.
“We use a customized approach with each new client and will bring unique system configurations to Northern Communities," said Scott Eungard, vice president of sales and marketing at Share One.
