We would like to wish LorMet Community Federal Credit Union, based in Lorain, Ohio, a “Happy Anniversary!” Our friends at LorMet have been enjoying the benefits of our core processing solution for 5 years, and we would like to recognize their loyalty to Sharetec and their success as a financial institution.

Since 1936, LorMet has called Lorain County its home, and the credit union is proud to serve all of Lorain County, Bay Village, Rocky River and Westlake, Ohio. They are also proud of the variety of personal banking and lending products and services they offer to their more than 20,000 members.

We are pleased that Sharetec’s many innovative features and benefits have assisted Lormet, ultimately enhancing its efficiency, productivity and customer service. They have been able to grow with their members’ ever-changing financial needs, and we are thrilled that our system has played a key role in their growth and success. 

We congratulate LorMet Community Federal Credit Union on 5 successful years of Sharetec, and we look forward to continuing our relationship and supporting their success in the years ahead!

We pay 4% interest when various requirements are met and our members have really embraced it,” remarks CEO, Daryl Empen. “Our debit card revenue grew 19% our first year and over 27% our second year. We have enjoyed 7% growth in checking accounts directly tied to this service, which has lead to more loans and other services.”

Real time posting

Many credit unions have to deal with general ledgers that rely on a lot of manual intervention, third party posting files, or vendor-compiled reports. With Sharetec’s integrated and real-time general ledger, credit unions can automate postings and gain a 360-degree view of the institution’s financial standing.

Working within Sharetec’s General Ledger credit unions can see how items are posted from all different parts of the system. Journal entries, AP, fixed assets, investments and lending transactions are posted to the GL in realtime. The system automatically posts member transactions when tellers close their drawers throughout the day. This keeps transaction audit trails clean and prevents unnecessary traffic from muddying account histories.

Each committed transaction brings metadata into the GL giving credit unions unique insight into each posting. Data like member number, date, GL voucher number, and batch information show users exactly where each transaction comes from and how it has affected other accounts. By providing a member number, credit unions can more easily research what member accounts a transaction originated from. This gives the credit union a more complete picture of each GL posting.

None of this would matter much if the credit union had a limited amount of transaction history in the system. Fortunately the Sharetec core processing platform is designed to give credit unions ultimate control of their data. There is no limit to the amount of GL or member transaction history each credit union can have on their Sharetec system.
