Welcome back to Direct Federal Credit Union’s Core Conversion Adventure. How many people reading this article would like to continue to be limited by technology developed in 1984 to drive their business procedures and workflows? I am certain the answer to that question is zero. Our first core conversion since 1984 will be instrumental to our business, and we have no option but to complete this conversion correctly. Any credit union that has been through a core conversion will agree that a key tenant of success is its team having the right mindset. A core conversion will force your credit union to examine every product, every service and every workflow that exists for the organization. That task may seem daunting, and it is. However, at Direct I am confident to say that our mindset of continuous improvement is ready for the challenge.
