BOCA RATON FL, July 9, 2014 – Today’s Credit Unions operate in a very difficult and hyper-competitive environment.  With thin margins, increasing regulations and pressures from large banks to provide full service to its members, credit unions are searching for products and services to both attract and retain members.   From business loans to mobile access to account information, today’s credit unions need core vendors that can not only provide services, but also create revenue opportunities for the credit union. In this 21st Century Television feature story, Kevin Kolar, VP of  Bradford-Scott Data Corporation discusses Sharetec Credit Union Software.  This story will air on Bloomberg Worldwide (as pd. prog) on July 12, 2014.

In 1994, four regional partners, including Bradford-Scott Data Corp, collaborated to form Sharetec, with the purpose of developing and distributing innovative software to credit unions throughout the United States.

Today, Sharetec is a leading national provider of credit union software solutions.

According to Kolar, his company’s software helps credit unions generate income in a variety of ways, but the top product offered by Sharetec, by far, is Tiered Rate Courtesy Pay. Tiered Rate Courtesy Pay rewards members who have infrequent overdrafts by lowering their overdraft fees accordingly. Reversely, members who suffer frequent overdrafts pay higher individual penalties. This type of courtesy pay has proven to increase revenue for credit unions by as much as a 53 percent.

Another product offered by Sharetec is the Home Banking Opt-In Product. This feature auto-enrolls members in the services that credit unions most want them to use upon log-in. Both features have proven to increase the ROI of the credit unions using them by significant measures.

Credit Unions who try Sharetec’s software solutions find an easy-to-use platform that has built-in room for expansion and solid research and development backing.
