Pima FCU, a $382.9 million credit union based in Tucson, Ariz., could have spent an unnecessary $160,000 on new cash-dispensing and recycling machines this year. But thanks to the reporting and analytics tools in the CFM S4 cash flow management solution from Chandler, Ariz.-based vendor Cash Flow Management Inc. and its integration with the Episys core processing system, Pima FCU leaders discovered only two new machines were needed–not the six as originally planned–saving them tens of thousands of dollars.

This is a significant example of the return on investment Pima FCU has seen as a result of the integrated solution, explained Gary Angeles, the credit union’s chief operations officer. Coupled together, CFM S4 and the cash automation module within the Episys core system from Symitar, a division of the San Diego-based Jack Henry & Associates, allow credit unions to seamlessly manage their cash transactions and track all communication between Episys, CFM S4 and their cash dispensers and recyclers in real time.
