CUTEK is now offering credit unions a Web-based collectionspackage that the Symitar specialist says is customizable and “notoverflowing with unused features.”
The new solution integrates with the Symitar Episys platform andother core processors, the consultancy said, and requires minimummaintenance.
“Since we built it with a newer programming paradigm, this solutionis very modular and plug-in based-which allows for its greaterflexibility,” said senior programmer Eric Lizotte. “We're utilizingall the Web technologies available for this product, which makes itact like a desktop application when it's really Web-based.”
The solution includes a queuing system that organizes and sortsinto categories, such as home and auto loans, and is re-assignablein real time, allowing for that-day action on such situations as achecking account going negative, the company said.
The package also tracks delinquencies and collections in an SQLdatabase that can build ad hoc reports for business intelligenceand data mining tools that allow tracking of CU staffperformance.
“Once again, we saw a need in the marketplace to develop a newsolution. In this case it's a collections package that meets thespecific needs of the individual credit union-not an expensiveout-of-the-box product that overflows in the functionality andfeatures department,” said Ron Murray, president of CUTEK.
