Sharetec welcomes 13 new credit unions to the family in 2014.

Many of Sharetec’s new customers are a result of credit unions changing their system to improve efficiency and growth opportunities. In addition to growing the customer base, Sharetec has been delivering, "Core conversions can be a challenge but the Sharetec team was instrumental for making our conversion such a success. We couldn’t have been better prepared than we were," comments John Bergeson, President of  Harvester Financial Credit Union.  

Another credit union had similar feedback when they converted to Sharetec, "Our conversion to the Sharetec system went very well, and I have been through 3 other conversions. What I liked most of all, is that we experienced no major issues with ACH or debit card processing, which can ruin an otherwise good conversion," comments Mari Zumbiel, President of  Progressions Credit Union.

“Our teams are proud to welcome so many credit unions to our core system. A few years ago, we began to focus on parts of our core that delivered an ROI, and that work is paving the way for these new core customers. The core is no longer just an expense on your financials, it’s a way for credit unions to succeed,” remarks Matt Isger, Regional Director for Sharetec. “It is exciting to be helping so many credit unions while also growing the company to handle all conversion requests.”

Sharetec System announces Northern States Power St. Paul Credit Union (NSP) in St. Paul, MN, has chosen Sharetec as their new core system.

NSP began its search over a year ago when enlisting the help of a firm that assists credit unions in the search for new core systems.

After significant research and comparison, including a detailed Request for Proposal, NSP identified Sharetec as the system that will help advance the functionality both within the credit union for the staff and for its member’s self-service needs.

"Our credit union had reached a point that our current core system was constraining our growth and unfortunately was not pacing well with the current technology needs of our staff and members," commented Mary Hoylo-Nelson, President/CEO. "We need a system that could provide the tools to be more efficient in lending and also automate the manual tasks we have to do as a staff and Sharetec delivered all that and more with a cost effective model."

NSP had also invested in other key solutions prior to the search for a core that they were not able to integrate but with the open architecture of Sharetec all the systems within the credit union could work seamlessly together.

"It was clear that NSP had specific issues they were trying to overcome with their current core system and needed a tool set unique to Sharetec that greatly improves the workflow in the area of lending and other key areas of the credit union," remarks Keane Kulak, Regional Director for Bradford-Scott Data Corporation, an owner/distributor of the Sharetec System. "Additionally, NSP has a strong member base that wants to access their information on their accounts through multiple integrated channels and we are excited to help them reach those goals with Sharetec."

Jennifer Davis, CEO of Pipefitters Steamfitters CU, comments, "We needed a powerful core system that could help us streamline our day-to-day tasks and offer us the most up-to-date products. Our members have a lot of options when it comes to their financial choices and it was critical for us to able to offer the services to keep our current members and to attract the younger demographics. We heard great things about Sharetec and after seeing it for ourselves; we knew it is the right solution for us."
