ATLANTA – The $1.2 billion SEFCU based in Albany, N.Y. recently converted core processing platforms from Fiserv’s AFTECH to Harland’s ULTRADATA. The new system is run on a UNIX-based Hewlett-Packard 9000 rx5670 system and the jBASE database management system. The CU cited ULTRADATA’s openness as one of the reasons for converting as well as being able to incorporate Harland’s suite of business intelligence tools. Over a recent three-day weekend, a team of experts from Harland Financial Solutions was onsite to ensure a successful implementation. “During the first day SEFCU was live on the system, the new Web-based loan application solution accepted online applications and rendered credit decisions for over $3 million in new consumer loans,” said Bob MacLasco, executive vice president of lending at SEFCU. “It was a great beginning to reaching our ultimate lending goals. In addition, more than 11,000 calls were processed on the new telephone banking system.”
