Three More CU*Answers Switches
Two more credit unions – both in the same Texas Hill Country town – have converted to the CU*BASE core processing system and a third, this one a good bit north, has committed to switching, according to CU*Answers.
The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based CUSO said conversions were recently completed at the $9.7 million Hilco Credit Union and the $13 million Texhillco Credit Union, both in Kerrville, Texas.
Both are now client-owners in CU*South, an Alabama-based CUSO that provides the CU*BASE platform through the cuasterisk network. Both had been on the Sharetec platform, CU*Answers said.
Hilco serves 1,200 members through SEGs at Kerrville State Hospital, Kerr County, the City of Kerrville, the local USDA office and the Upper Guadeloupe River Authority. Texhillco serves about 1,900 members through its SEG with local schools.
Meanwhile, the $63 million Tongass Federal Credit Union in Ketchikan will be the first Alaska client for CU*NorthWest, a Washington-based member of the cuasterisk network.
Tongass has four branches on three Alaskan islands and plans to convert next March, CU*Answers said. It currently runs on the Symitar Cruise platform, according to data from Callahan & Associates.
CU*South now has 29 credit union clients and CU*NorthWest has 25, while another 171 credit unions run the CU*BASE platform through CU*Answers itself, the Michigan CUSO said.
