PRESS RELEASE
July 14, 2016 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LINO LAKES, MN – Sharetec System, one of the fastest growing core systems that offers the technology of simplicity, announces Sharetec customers have great success using Sharetec's Remote Signatures.

With everyone on the go, members are always welcoming products that are easy, simple to use, and will offer them convenience. Providing members with a solution to signing documents without having to come into the credit union is a great way to attract new members and keep current members satisfied. Sharetec’s Remote Signatures has shown great success for many Sharetec customers.

Family Focus Federal Credit Union struggled with loan documents in the past, but once they offered Remote Signatures to their members, the stress level for the staff decreased greatly. Kari Rager, VP of Sales & Lending, comments, "Follow up can take days or weeks with traditional documents, often including many hours of staff time to complete phone calls and mail documents. It was a tedious process that took at least 3-4 days before we got the paperwork back, as well as the hassle of members notarizing the documents and mailing costs. But now it only takes 5-10 minutes."

Credit union members appreciate the convenience and ease that Remote Signatures provide. "Members are raving about this product and we are gaining a lot of business from referrals due to the convenience this product provides to our members," comments Kabir Laiwalla, CEO of Platinum Federal Credit Union. "We wanted members residing in different states to have the convenience of a concierge service and to stay relevant with the time and technology of attracting more members."

Sharetec System
Sharetec, a provider of both in-house and service bureau core solutions, has delivered an ROI, building income streams & lowering operating expenses, to nearly 300 credit unions nationwide with 67% growth since 2000.

PRESS RELEASE
August 2, 2016 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LINO LAKES, MN – Sharetec System, one of the fastest growing core systems that offers the technology of simplicity, announces CLICO Credit Union Co-operative Society Limited (CLICO) of Port-of- Spain, has made the decision to implement the Sharetec core processing solution.

CLICO, led by CEO Learie Parris, conducted an extensive international search to identify a forward thinking core processing solution in order to meet the growing and changing needs of its membership and staff. Key areas of improvement included a stronger online presence to drive up the self-service channels for members through both the web and mobile platform, as well as custom reporting and increased automation in the back office to reduce costs. When the analysis of the RFP, demonstration, and pricing phase were complete, Sharetec was the clear solution that best met the credit union’s needs, which was further validated with an on-site visit to Sharetec. Additionally Mr. Parris and his staff had the opportunity to meet many of the individuals involved in Sharetec’s implementation and development, all resulting in Sharetec being selected as the new core system for CLICO.

"In the months leading up to their decision, CLICO compared Sharetec to numerous other solutions and as each of the credit union’s needs and requirements were evaluated, Sharetec was clearly the best fit," remarked Dan Miller, Regional Director at Sharetec. "The credit union knew they needed a partner that would not just meet their immediate needs, but also would have the vision of future needs, which is an area Sharetec excels. It was important that their new core system provide a streamlined online channel for members, and better analytic tools such as Sharetec Dashboards while putting it all in a user–friendly solution. We are thrilled to be partnering with the team at CLICO and look forward to being a part of their future growth and success."

CLICO has already made a successful conversion to Sharetec and are immediately seeing the impact with the efficiencies it provides for both members and staff.
