NDFCU Goes Beta With Biz Banking
The $464 million Notre Dame Federal Credit Union converted to a new core processing system on April 1, and at the same time became the first user of the provider’s online banking tool specifically designed for business banking, the company and credit union said.
My BIZ is from CU*Answers in Grand Rapids, Mich., and the Notre Dame, Ind.-based credit union is now a beta user of the system, which includes multiple logon security and configurable access permissions, with mobile web, text banking, business bill pay and messaging features to come, CU*Answers said.
NDFCU also began utilizing the call center, e-communication and compliance monitoring services of Xtend Inc., a CUSO partner of CU*Answers in the cuasterisk network. It becomes the largest of the 180 clients of that 75-owner CUSO, Xtend Inc. said. The 57,800-member NDFCU converted to the CU*BASE platform earlier this month. According to data from Callahan & Associates, it had been a Fiserv XP2 customer.
CU*Answers also said that it now has more than 140 credit CEOs participating on its private Of Course service using a CU*BASE connected workstation.
“In essence, it’s a collaboration of peers sharing working practices, did-you-knows and other thought provoking moments. It also allows credit union peers to reach out to each other easily for an assist. Recent conversations include experiences and recommendations for credit union name changes, converting bill pay providers, and e-signature adoption for lending,” CU*Answers said in its announcement.
CU*Answers, which earlier this month announced it had invested in social media CUSO Chatter Yak!, said it also has added its 122nd owner, the $80 million Lakes Community Credit Union in Lake Orion, Mich., and now provides core processing to about 225 credit unions.
